Yeah, great read. It's a real shame he didn't follow through with it. It sounds reasonably exciting, and I think most people would have given him credit for trying something new. What's he afraid of?

Change.
Which pretty much sums up Oasis in a nutshell.

I think Oasis was best with that original line up. They were, in the early days, essentially a pub band done good. Each time they replaced a member with a more polished replacement they lost something IMO.

I saw them pushing Definitely Maybe in '94 and I maintain it's one of the best gigs I've ever been to. Maine Road wasn't a bad day out. Later I saw them a third time at Milton Keynes Bowl, it was just soulless coining it in by numbers. I left halfway through to beat the rush.

That Bowie / Slade analogy works. Comparing Oasis with Blur always struck me like comparing The Guardian with The Sun. You just know one's credible and worthy, the other's not. Despite being aware of that I always had time in my life for a bit of Deirdre's photo casebook.
:lol: Great post, Foggy. Accurate and funny in equal measure.

I was at Maine Road in '96 and they were still 'full on', with Liam accentuating the vocals in his great style. But when I saw them at Bolton Reebok in 2000, this element had gone and they were going through the motions.

....and, yes, I used to read the Telegraph....and The Sun.... :D

I wonder if the girls in Dierdre's Photo Casebook went to an Oasis gig in their underwear....? ;)

Sorry for the thread bump..
I saw a couple of weeks ago at the Picturehouse in Oxford. A well made, entertaining and some bits quite sad(especially the relationship with their father and mother)documentary. No mention of the August '95 battle with blur which I thought odd.. But well worth a watch if you a moderate fan. It brought back so many great memories for me and I can't believe it's been 20 years since I went to Maine road and knebworth!...

Nice half hour interview with Noel about the Be Here Now Album

The unheard songs on the BHN bonus disc are completely forgettable. I guess that's around the time when Noel started losing it. Be Here Now is still a great record though.

I'm very excited to watch Supersonic! I have to wait and grab it on DVD, however. Also need to eventually get Be Here Now remastered.

That's amazing that you were at Maine Road AND Knebworth! Man, what I wouldn't give to be able to go back in time to those days.

Yeah. I usually like Noel's demos, but him singing BHN songs doesn't sound right to me.

...that's when Liam's voice started to turn to shit too. His lowest point was DBTT. I love the pre-DM demos, his voice was so clear.

I agree. Liam had an amazing voice in the early days, one of my favorite's ever. Shame he lost it, and lost it HARD. And much too fast! Love this rehearsal footage from 92 of All Around The World (easily my fav song on BHN, probably because it was written in Noel's golden period) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXDmN0UnS-M" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
