Champagne Supernova – Oasis
There’s three or four bands that I could call my favourite, but I’ve decided to stick with my guns and go with Oasis. They seem to get a lot of stick Oasis And for a variety of reasons, but it’s a lot of these things just seem to make me like them more. The constant squabbling of the Gallagher brothers is both entertaining and childish, and their outspoken words shows arrogance at an unbelievable level. But they have a right to be arrogant given their success.
For a few years in the 90s, Oasis were possibly the biggest band in the world. Both Definitely Maybe and What’s the Story (Morning Glory) are classic British albums, and in a time when Britpop was dominating the charts, you could walk down a street in London, and 1 in 2 people were a huge Oasis fan. With their highly publicised rivalry against Blur, the Gallaghers were never too far from the headlines, and even though they are well past their best, the continue to get the headlines. As Liam tours with his new band Beady Eye (basically the same line-up as Oasis but minus Noel), Noel appears set to release solo work.
It is one of greatest disappointments that I never got to see them live. I will go see Beady Eye when they come but it won’t be the same. Despite their many downfalls, the Gallaghers did make brilliant music. And at the end of thday, that’s what we all enjoy.
