On This Day In Oasis History...














Stop The Clocks is an EP by British rock band Oasis and was released on November 13th 2006.

The EP is a "preview" of the band's compilation collection, also called Stop the Clocks. The EP is led by "Acquiesce", and book-ended by "The Masterplan", one of the B-sides to the "Wonderwall" single released in October 1995. Also included on the EP is the demo of "Cigarettes & Alcohol" and a live version of "Some Might Say" from 1995.

The EP does not contain the song of the same name, and is available only as a one-off collectors edition CD and Double gatefold 7” including an exclusive sheet of stickers. As there are over two B-sides, the EP was not be eligible for inclusion in the UK Singles Chart. Had it been eligible it would have charted at #5 with 20,858 copies sold.
