Video Of Oasis' 'Chasing The Sun: Oasis 1993 To 1997' Exhibition

An exhibition celebrating 20 years of British band Oasis has opened in London. Called "Chasing The Sun: Oasis 1993 to 1997," the exhibition looks back at the history of the Manchester band who shot to fame in the mid 90s.

The “Chasing the Sun” exhibition features artifacts, clothing, rare photographs, memorabilia and musical instruments.

There's also a life-size replica of the room featured on the cover of the "Definitely Maybe" album.

Also on display is early album artwork designed by Brian Cannon.

"I was a massive fan, which obviously always helps. And it was crazy times," Cannon said. "Funnily enough the closer you got to the epicentre of it all the normal it became because they're very down-to-earth grounded people. So whilst everybody else is going bonkers the inner circle was very chilled out really."

The opening of the exhibition coincides with the 20th anniversary of their debut single "Supersonic" released on April 11th, 1994. It also marks the re-release of "Definitely Maybe" on May 19th.

"Well you know it's marvellous isn't it, that 20 years after the band's still so relevant really, and still have the same impact and still mean so much to so many people, it's madness," Cannon said.

Formed by brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher, Oasis shot to fame in the mid 90s and became one of the leaders in what was coined the Brit Pop movement.

Oasis went on to become one of the biggest British bands, enjoying a successful career always marred by the turbulent relationship between the two brothers.

"Chasing The Sun: Oasis 1993-1997" is showing at the London-Newcastle Project Space in east London until April 22nd.
