On This Day In Oasis History...














"Who Feels Love?" is a song by British rock band Oasis, written by the band's lead guitarist Noel Gallagher. It became the second single to be released from the album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, peaking at number 4 in the UK charts when released on 17th of April 2000.


















The album was noted for its psychedelic feel, and "Who Feels Love?" was held up as the most extreme example of this. Mark Stent was praised for his production on the song, creating a "trippy" feel like that found on Beatles songs such as "Rain". With the psychedelic and Eastern sound, the song also reminds of George Harrison achievements like "Within You Without You" and also some of his solo work.

However, despite the high-quality production, the song was not well received by the critics, NME said that the production "triumphs over any real sort of feeling... pure mock Maharishi spirituality that not even Liam can salvage from the realm of self-parody".

One of the B-sides is a cover of The Beatles' "Helter Skelter". It was played live during the Shoulders tour of 2000. Paul Weller recorded a version of b-side "One Way Road" for his covers-album Studio 150 in 2004. The Weller version was subsequently used as the theme tune to Jack Dee's sitcom Lead Balloon.

Roberto Mancini On Being Kissed By Liam Gallagher













Roberto Mancini received a big kiss on the mouth from rocker Liam Gallagher when he led Manchester City to its first ever Premier League title back in 2012.

City famously denied rivals Manchester United the trophy when Sergio Aguero struck an injury-time winner against Queens Park Rangers on the final day of the 2011/12 campaign.

And Mancini revealed how huge City fan Liam of Oasis-fame surprised him with a kiss on the mouth for his part in the historic moment.

"Winning the Premier League changed the history of Manchester City," Mancini said.

"When I was in my office after the decisive game, Liam Gallagher from Oasis came in. He's a big fan of City and he gave me a big kiss on the mouth. I didn't have time to react!"

Johnny Marr And Paul Weller Claim Noel Gallagher Is A British Institution












Johnny Marr and Paul Weller have hailed Noel Gallagher and declared that "he doesn’t need to reform Oasis".

The guitar legends, who have both worked with Gallagher, claim his current live set up and recent Number One album 'Chasing Yesterday' is some of his best work ever.

"I couldn't give a fuck if Oasis got back together again because I like what he does now," Weller told NME, just weeks after Gallagher said the former Jam man would put his "fucking windows in" if that happened.

Weller added: "He gets better and better I think. His new album is wicked."

Marr added: "When I played with him recently [Marr joined Gallagher onstage at Manchester Arena last month], it's interesting because he's filled up this arena and he's managed to do it by inventing a new kind of Noel music which does what you want from it. He still does big melodies, big choruses and places really amazing feeling in there. But it's a new kind of thing he's doing."

The pair also said Gallagher has become an institution in British guitar music over the last 21 years.

Marr added: "He's a songwriter, he's been around and been so well known for years, he's a bit of a, what's the term?"

Weller: "Wanker?"

"Ha, no, national treasure," laughed Marr. "He's just somebody you've got something in common with. When you love music and love playing music that much and when you meet someone else who does that, it cuts through a lot of the bullshit really, and he's always been the same.

He added: "Like myself and Paul he's someone that won't go away whether he's successful or not because it's what he does. He's a lifer. Everyone knows that about him. He's serious about what he does."

Weller also revealed that he is planning on finishing a new track with Gallagher when the pair get chance.

"The biggest problem I think is keeping him in the studio long enough," he added.

He continued: "We were trying to write a song for my new album but he was only there for a few hours. He seemed to want to get away before five o'clock. We had the makings of a track but we just need to sit down and finish it."

Marr and Weller recently discussed the possibility of working together on new music, following their recent onstage team-up in London, saying it's something they "definitely" hope to do.

On This Day In Oasis History...














'The Hindu Times' is a song by English rock group Oasis, and was the first single to be released from their fifth album Heathen Chemistry on 15 April 2002. It was written by Noel Gallagher. Noel got the name "The Hindu Times" from a t-shirt he saw in a charity shop. The song was the band's sixth UK #1 single, staying on top for one week before being dislodged by the Sugababes' "Freak Like Me".

















The title has little to do with the lyrics of the song, which are more in the vein of Definitely Maybe's "Rock 'n' Roll Star". It has been speculated that the title refers to the main riffs' similarity to Indian music in sound, sounding as if they were played on a sitar. Gallagher himself says that it is because he had already named the song before any lyrics were written for it.

The song, which combines the powerful fast rock of their earlier work with the psychedelic feel of their later work, was one of the first Oasis singles since (What's the Story) Morning Glory to receive almost unanimously positive reviews from the critics. However, some fans have criticised the song, stating that the main guitar riff was lifted from the Stereophonics song, "Same Size Feet", which was released in 1997 on their Word Gets Around album and uses the exact same, or at least very similar, guitar riff.

The song was unveiled during Oasis' Autumn 2001 Noise and Confusion Tour. The song was due to be released commercially at the same time but Noel decided the track needed more work done on it to be suitable for release.

The B-side, "Just Getting Older", was written at the time of the release of Standing on the Shoulder of Giants.

"The Hindu Times" - 3:53
"The Hindu Times" (demo) - 4:32
10 Minutes Of Noise And Confusion - Pt One - 9:26

The demo version of The Hindu Times is radically different from the finished album version. Most of the lyrics (sung by Noel) are different, and the slower sound of the song is much more "grungy", with a heavy drum loop running throughout the song. It is also a semitone higher in the demo.

The "10 Minutes..." documentary is the first part of a unique feature covering 48 hours on the road with Oasis during the Tour of Brotherly Love which took place in the USA with the Black Crowes during May and June 2001.
