Two decades ago, American audiences got their first taste of a charmingly opinionated British rock star with an intriguing way of pronouncing "sunshine" when Oasis released their debut, Definitely Maybe. As Rob Sheffield writes in his four-and-a-half-star review of the band's new three-disc reissue of their first album, "Twenty years on, Oasis' debut remains one of the most gloriously loutish odes to cigarettes, alcohol and dumb guitar solos that the British Isles have ever coughed up."
To mark the reissue's arrival this week, Rolling Stone is debuting this footage of the band playing "Cigarettes & Alcohol" at the Lomax in Liverpool on April 13th, 1994.
Highlights: Liam Gallagher's star-shaped tambourine and the fact that the camera finds guitarist Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs more often than Liam's partner in crime, Noel.
