Review Of Oasis' 'Supersonic' Documentary


This superb doc about the rise and fall of Oasis will remind you why you loved these gobby Mancs.

They were obnoxious and belligerent, the songs made virtually no sense and they sometimes seemed to be in it as much for the fame as the music – but good God, Oasis in their prime were something to behold. Mat Whitecross’s poignant documentary tracks the band through what Noel Gallagher freely admits were ‘the glory years’: from the first band practices in the basement of the Manchester Boardwalk in 1991 to playing in front of 250,000,000 people at Knebworth just five years later.

Restricting interviews almost exclusively to the band and their immediate inner circle – no celebrity fans, no blithering cultural critics, and it doesn’t even mention that nonsense with Blur – this is a purely personal story about a bunch of guys driven by poverty, boredom and childhood trauma to create something beautiful.

And after all the tabloid-baiting and rotten solo albums, it’s easy to forget just how charismatic Liam and Noel can be. If ‘Supersonic’ captures what it really feels like to play your first gig, to release your first album, to stay up for five days snorting crystal meth then freak out on stage at the Whisky a Go Go, it’s largely down to their articulate, wistful, arrogant, bullshitting and downright hilarious reminiscences. Smartly cutting off before the long decline, this is an epic story, beautifully told.

Liam And Noel Gallagher Use Mum Peggy To Check In On Each Other Every Day


The lengthy rift between Noel and Liam Gallagher has now surpassed the time Oasis spent feuding with Britpop rivals Blur.

But the man behind the band’s new documentary Supersonic has revealed the brothers have expressed their concern for each other through their mum Peggy.

In an exclusive interview, director Mat Whitecross said: “Peggy says they both ring her every day and the first thing they do is ask after each other.

“She said Liam in particular rings her five times a day and he’s always asking after Noel and she tells him ‘Well, pick up the phone then.’ ”

Despite recording all their interviews for the film separately to avoid any fights, Mat reckons there’s still a chance the brothers could reunite.

He said: “Liam is very keen – his thing is that ‘we were at our peak when we fell apart, let’s get back together, we are wasting time’.

“Whereas Noel says he would have to be offered an obscene amount of money to re-form – but he hasn’t ruled it out completely.”

Liam Gallagher On His New Album, Oasis, Kids, Noel And More


How did it feel watching all that footage of you and Noel back in the day?

A few bits were emotional, nothing I can’t handle. I’m glad they got the funny side out of it — a lot of people think we take ourselves seriously. We take our music seriously, but the other side of it can go to hell.

Which bits made you laugh?

All the bits where I was p***ing Noel off, that s*** gives me the giggles. Like when he’s having his Kevin Keegan moments, where he’s really losing his rag and I’m flicking his ear.

Do you think you will ever make it up with your brother?

Who knows? It certainly wouldn’t be for money. I guess it would be nice to put it all to bed for me mam’s sake. I miss hanging out with my brother, I f***ing love him but at the same time he’s treated me like a bit of a c***. We’re having a stand off, but it’s a funny one, we’re not putting in each other’s windows or messing with each other’s tyres, trying to kill each other. He’s like: [puts on whiney voice] ‘He can’t sing.’ ‘F***ing do one, potato’. It’s stupid and it’s childish and we should know better, but we don’t.

Why do you call Noel ‘potato’?

’Cos he looks like one.

What does your average day look like nowadays?

My alarm goes at 5.30am. While I’m not doing anything I still have to have a bit of discipline. Have a coffee about six, put the news on, see what’s going down, then go for a run at half six, come back, chill, see what’s on the menu for the day, hang out with the missus. I don’t do the friends thing.

Do you worry about anything?

When you’ve got kids, you worry, make sure they don’t turn into f***ing lunatics, but then there’s nothing wrong with being a lunatic. I guess, making sure they don’t turn into f***ing squares. That’s the most important thing, isn’t it?

What would be the first sign of them turning into squares?

Listening to Coldplay, listening to Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds… If I ever caught them at one of their gigs there’d be trouble. I’d stop their pocket money or I’d dish out loads of old photos of them with nappies full of s*** and put that on the internet and say, ‘Cop that, dickhead.’ That’ll do it ’cos they think they’re cool now they’re 16, 17.

What’s your solo album going to be like?

God, I don’t know, it’s nowhere near… Good songs, good vocals, rock’n’roll, mate, stuff you won’t have to think too much about. No long guitar solos, no drum solos, no mad wizardy keyboard, just bang in-your-face. It’s good.

Are you proud of Oasis?

Without a doubt, we were the best thing since sliced bread. I loved every minute of it. We did it our way and no one ruined our career except for us, no one called time on us except for us.

Is there a chance you’d get back together?

As long as you’re still breathing there’s always a chance. Obviously I’d like to do it ’cos there’s f*** all else to do. In the meantime a solo record will have to do. I’ve done the Beady Eye thing and that didn’t come off and I thought maybe I’ll just have a break, but I wrote these songs and I thought, what else can I do? This album, if it does well we crack on and do another one. If it doesn’t [laughs] I don’t know what I’ll do. I probably will f*** off forever but we’ll see.

Have you ever had a paranormal experience?

I’ve had a lot of out-of-body experiences. The last one was in Cornwall. I was in this four-poster bed. The next minute I’m above myself looking down on myself. I think I’ve seen things, but maybe that’s because I’ve been drunk or on drugs. I haven’t seen any geezers on horses or any f***ing kids riding tricycles.

What’s been your most rock’n’roll moment lately?

We went to Majorca, about 15 of us, two weeks ago, and came back on a private jet and we were really drunk. I remember getting carried off upside down.

What’s the longest you’ve partied?

About three days, I wouldn’t go past that. I don’t think anyone wants to hear what I say for four f***ing days on the trot. I can’t do that now. I go out for a night now, I’m done in for a couple of days.

Another On This Day In Oasis History...


The videos below are from the 29th September 2002, when Oasis played at the Yoyogi Taiikukan in Tokyo, Japan







On This Day In Oasis History...


The Shock Of The Lightning is a song by British rock band Oasis and is the fourth track from the band's seventh studio album Dig Out Your Soul. The song was released as the first single from the album on 29 September 2008. It received its first airplay on 15 August 2008 on multiple UK and Irish radio stations including the Ian Dempsey Breakfast show on Today FM in Ireland, BBC 6 Music by Shaun Keaveny, and by Chris Moyles on BBC Radio 1. Chris was joined by Noel Gallagher on the 15 August 2008.

Noel said of the song: "If 'The Shock of the Lightning' sounds instant and compelling to you, it’s because it was written dead fast. And recorded dead fast. 'The Shock of the Lightning' basically is the demo. And it has retained its energy. And there’s a lot to be said for that, I think. The first time you record something is always the best”. It was described by NME as "a massively improved version of 'It's Gettin' Better (Man!!)'" and featuring "love is a litany/a magical mystery" as the song's chorus.

The single is the first Oasis song to feature a remix on a studio release. The B-side is a remixed version of the album track "Falling Down" by The Chemical Brothers, who Noel has worked with in the past. However, a promo release of Oasis' cover of "Cum On Feel the Noize" contained the "Lynchmob Beats Mix" of "Champagne Supernova" by Brandon Lynch that was also re-released as a stand alone promo for Stop the Clocks. Consequently this is their first official CD single release that does contain a new track as a B-side.

On 30 July 2008, the official Oasis website posted a Dig Out Your Soul trailer which contained a 23 second clip of the intro to "The Shock of the Lightning" as well as a 20 second clip of the drum solo. On 15 August 2008, the song received it first airplay on the The Chris Moyles Show on BBC Radio 1 with Noel Gallagher present. Noel said of the song on Shaun Keaveny's Radio 6 show, "It's a driving, pumping, pop, rock 'n' roll masterpiece". In NME, the song was named as 'song of the week' and received a score of 9/10, despite being referred to as "only the fifth best song on Dig Out Your Soul".





















"The Shock Of The Lightning" entered the UK Singles Chart at #3, becoming the band's first lead single since their debut, "Supersonic", to fail to reach #1 in their homeland. However the song reached #12 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart in the USA, making it their most successful single there since "Don't Go Away", which peaked on the chart at #5 in 1998. It also reached #93 on the Billboard Hot 100, their first song to chart on the Hot 100 since "Don't Look Back in Anger" in 1996.



Music video

The music video for the song (directed by Julian House and Julian Gibbs) debuted on the band's official site on 25 August at 17:30 (UK time) and was broadcast on Channel 4 at 23:40. The video depicts Liam singing and the occasional appearance of the rest of the band, intercut with stock footage related to the album's artwork. The opening shot of the video of silhouetted heads is a reference to the cover of the Rolling Stones compilation record Hot Rocks 1964-1971.

Oasis In Their Own Words Proves Liam And Noel Gallagher Are Totally Hilarious


With the new Oasis movie Supersonic on the way, the BBC has decided to dig deep into its archive of interviews and news reports to come up with its own celebration of the legendary Manchester band.

And the broadcaster has turned up some seriously classic Gallagher moments, reviving snippets and soundbites that prove what we all knew: that Noel and Liam aren't just some of the city's most important musicians, they're also among its most natural comedians.

Oasis In Their Own Words revisits the moment the band changed the face of music in the 1990s: blazing an historic trail to the top of the pop charts in August 1994 with their debut album Definitely Maybe, locking horns with Blur in the battle to be king of the Britpop era, and making all kinds of tabloids headlines for record breaking shows at Knebworth as well as cancelled gigs in America.

We've had a preview of Oasis In Their Own Words - which is available on the BBC iPlayer from 7am on Friday, September 30 - and these are some of the highlights to look out for.

Left-handed Noel was told off for playing guitar right handed

Dexterous Noel was apparently ordered by his school music teacher to flip his guitar over and restring it to be played left-handed as he is a natural leftie. But "it didn't make sense" to play it that way round, he says in an interview with musician and presenter Jools Holland.

Instead he stuck to his guns, and remains pretty pleased with himself about the win, laughing, "I'd like to say if my old music teacher's watching, do you wanna borrow a tenner?".

"We made Bonehead go bald"

Adding to the body of evidence about the Gallagher God complex (look out for the amazing clip of newsreader Jennie Bond reporting that Oasis reckon they mean more to young people than religion because "has God played Knebworth lately?") is a nugget of footage in which Noel claims Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs' hair loss was a deliberate band decision.

"I told the rhythm guitarist he'd have a bit of character if he lost a bit of hair," says Noel. "So we made him go bald."

Hilarious.

Take that, Take That!

Liam's long cold stare into the camera is absolutely priceless as he recounts the success of Some Might Say, despite him boycotting the video shoot.

"Hey, I'm Liam from Oasis," he swaggers, "and our new song Some Might Say's gone in at number one, knocked Take That right off the spot, and we haven't done a video.

"I'm not paying £30,000 for me to sit in a truck stop and eat eggs, bacon, and beans," he says about refusing to shoot the planned video. "So I didn't get out of bed - and I got a slapped wrist for it."

Noel's damning assessment of Be Here Now

When presenter Jayne Middlemiss asks Noel about the criticism of the band's third studio album, Noel responds: "Looking back on it now we should have called it F*** It, That'll Do. I listen back to it and it sounds like a Bon Jovi album to me... Like Slippery When Wet."

Liam's assessment: "I think it's top."

Oasis: the biggest band in the UK?

Is a good question for a group who claimed this was their ambition, and Noel's analysis of the situation at the start of the 2000s is right on the money.

"I'll tell you what's the funny thing about being in Oasis, right, is when we first started off we were hailed as the new Beatles, and then second of all we were the U2 it was OK to like, and now we're a younger version of the Rolling Stones, i.e. the record's not doing too well but you can still come and see us at Wembley."

Oasis In Their Own Words broadcasts just before the release of Supersonic by Mat Whitecross, the man behind docudrama The Road To Guantanamo and award winning documentary movies Amy and Senna.

Supersonic premieres in Manchester on Sunday, October 2, and the sold-out first screening at the Odeon Printworks will feature an appearance from frontman Liam Gallagher himself, plus a Q&A session with fans afterwards.

The film is on general release from October 7.

Bonehead Says He'd Be Up For An Oasis Reunion


Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs will be reuniting with Liam Gallagher at least twice next month - and says he'd be up for an Oasis reunion too.

There will be plenty of Oasis reunions for founding members Liam Gallagher and Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs next month.

For guitarist Bonehead reveals he too will be joining Liam at the big film premiere of Oasis documentary Supersonic in Manchester on Sunday night - before hooking up with the frontman again later in the month for an exclusive Q&A with Radio X at the Etihad Stadium .

And amid all that we also have the launch of Oasis exhibition Chasing the Sun at the Old Granada Studios from October 14 - with Bonehead confirming he’ll be heading along there at some point too.

So what does all this mean for a full on reunion for the Manchester band? Well, as far as Bonehead is concerned, he’d be there 'like a shot' if it happened.

Bonehead says: “There’s never a day goes by when I’m not asked by someone about a reunion. But nothing has been said to me about that. If I was asked? Then absolutely, like a shot.”

Bonehead remains good pals with Liam, and the duo caused something of a stir when they both turned up to the opening night of the Chasing the Sun exhibition when it opened in London two years ago.

The exhibition includes a host of rarely seen photographs, the band’s instruments and stage clothes, and for fans the chance to recreate the iconic Definitely Maybe album cover in a purpose-built recreation of Bonehead’s old living room in West Didsbury where the image was shot back in 1994.

Bonehead says: “It’s got everything and more really for fans, it’s a chance to see a load of stuff up close and personal, never seen before pictures that we’d never even seen, Noel’s guitars, coats that Liam wore at Glastonbury, the coat that I wore at Maine Road, guitars we played on.

“And then there’s a mock set up of the room, so everyone’s got the chance to lie on the floor and be Liam, it’s a great thing.”

Bonehead’s old house on Stratford Avenue in West Didsbury became something of a shrine for Oasis fans after the huge success of their debut album, and Bonehead fondly recalls how it all came to happen that his front room took a place in rock n roll history.

He says: “It wasn’t really intended to be that room on the album cover, it was just everyone was living at their parents at the time so it made sense to come round mine to chat about what we could do for an album cover.

“Michael Spencer Jones was designing the album cover, so we were bouncing around some ideas, I don’t know who it was but someone said 'why don't we do it here?' And it came from there.”

Bonehead is also looking forward to watching Supersonic again on Sunday night at the Odeon in Manchester - after watching a first edit at a private screening with Liam back in April.

He says: “It was a pretty incredible film to watch. There was stuff on there that even the band members are thinking how did they get that? It’s a brilliant, brilliant film, really portrays it all.

“I think it really brought it back to me. At the time everything was happening so quick and we were reaching those heights, you really don’t get a day to sit back and think, where are we going?

“When we were doing it then there was no YouTube, Facebook or Twitter, so to sit and back and watch those early years, growing up to walking out with the band at Knebworth, it was a pretty incredible thing.”

Another On This Day In Oasis History...


The videos below are from September 23rd 2008, when Zane Lowe caught up with the band to discuss a number of various subjects.




On This Day In Oasis History...


"Little By Little" is a song by British rock band Oasis, first released as the sixth track on their fifth studio album Heathen Chemistry. On September 23rd 2002, it was released with "She Is Love" as the first (and, so far, only) double A-sided single by the band, peaking at #2 in the UK Singles Chart Noel Gallagher provides lead vocals on both tracks, which he also wrote.

"Little By Little" was perhaps the most controversial song on the album, receiving mixed reviews from those who felt it was a classic example of an upbeat Oasis anthem and those who felt it was a twee, patronising, sycophantic melody. Regardless of this, the song managed to peak at number two in the UK charts based largely on the publicity garnered by the song.




















The promo video to the song featured a guest role by Robert Carlyle. The cover art for the single is an homage to Robert Indiana's LOVE artwork.



She Is Love

"She Is Love" is a song by British rock band Oasis, first released as the ninth track on their fifth studio album Heathen Chemistry. In September 2002, it was released with "Little by Little" as the first double A-sided single by the band, peaking at #2 in the UK Singles Chart. The song was written about Noel Gallagher's girlfriend Sara McDonald and is a light, acoustic song about being in love.

Gallagher claims it was written in the Buckingham Gate Hotel in London, and that it took 30 minutes to complete. The band commissioned British fashion art director Rachel Thomas to make a promo video for the song. However, the resulting film, a mix of animation and live action, has never been released on any format.

On This Day In Oasis History...


"Stand By Me" is a song by British rock group Oasis and was released as a single on September 22 1997, written by lead guitarist, Noel Gallagher.

It was the second single to be released from the band's third album, Be Here Now, and peaked at number 2 in the UK charts.

It was kept from the top-spot by the record breaking Elton John single "Candle in the Wind 1997," re-recorded and released in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, who had died three weeks before the release of "Stand by Me". Despite this, "Stand By Me" still went Gold in the UK. "Stand by Me" was acknowledged as one of the stand-out tracks from Be Here Now.





















Interview

In a 1997 interview promoting Be Here Now, Noel Gallagher had the following to say: "It starts, 'Made a meal and threw it up on Sunday'. When I first moved to London my mam kept on ringing up and asking was I eating properly. Yes, Mam. So I tried to cook a Sunday roast and puked up for two days with food poisoning. It was back to Pot Noodles after that. It's a bit like "Live Forever", I suppose, with a touch of "All the Young Dudes" in the background -- though I made sure I changed the chords."

Live Performances

Due to Noel Gallagher's general dislike of Be Here Now, "Stand by Me" is rarely played live by the band at their concerts, as it is Noel who usually decides the song listings for Oasis' tours. A live version of the song from this tour can be found on the double-CD version of Familiar to Millions.

A well-known acoustic version of "Stand by Me" was shown on television the night before the release of Be Here Now as part of a BBC1 documentary, featuring Noel, Liam Gallagher and drummer Alan White sitting by the side of a swimming pool, with Liam on vocals, Noel on acoustic guitar and White holding a tambourine.

Writing

Noel Gallagher claims to have written the song whilst suffering from food poisoning when he first moved to London. His mother Peggy would phone him to check on him and repeatedly told him to ensure he was eating properly. This spurred Gallagher to cook himself a proper English Sunday dinner, which resulted in a bout of food poisoning. Gallagher claims that the song's first line—"Made a meal and threw it up on Sunday/I've got a lot of things to learn"—came to him as he lay on the floor and it was then that he began to pen the lyrics to the song.

The title for the song probably comes from the song "Stand By Me", which was covered by the Gallaghers' idol John Lennon. In a characteristic example of Noel Gallagher lifting elements from songs of which he is fond, the rousing sequence of chord changes between the repeated chorus lyrics 'Stand by me/Nobody knows the way it's gonna be' bears a remarkable similarity to a similar chord sequence in Mott the Hoople's "All the Young Dudes", written by David Bowie.



Video

The video for the song was a reworking of a famous series of adverts for The Guardian newspaper. Entitled The Whole Picture, the adverts showed people appearing to be engaging in criminal and/or anti-social acts—only to revealed that they are actually helping someone else. For example, a scruffily-dressed skinhead rushes at a businessman; it appears he is making an effort to mug him; only the "whole picture" reveals that he is fact dashing to push him away from a load of falling bricks. Similarly in the video for "Stand By Me", a shop appears to be being burgled - its window smashed and people taking away electrical goods—only for it to be revealed that in fact the victim of a motorcycle crash has gone through the window and is buried under the televisions.

"My Sister Lover" - Some fans believe the title to be a reference to the band Sister Lovers, a group that invited Oasis to a May 1993 gig at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow, Scotland, where they were spotted by Creation Records chief Alan McGee, who reportedly offered Oasis a recording contract on the spot after the gig.

"Going Nowhere" - apparently Noel's attempt at a Burt Bacharach style song - can be found on The Masterplan, a collection of Oasis B-sides. It is one of only two B-sides from the Be Here Now era to be included on the album. Although it was not released until 1997, the song was written in 1990, before Noel even joined Oasis, let alone before they were signed.

Liam Gallagher To Attend London And Manchester Premieres Of Oasis Documentary 'Supersonic'


The Supersonic film premiere takes place in London and Manchester at the same time.

Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher is so keen to make the Manchester premiere of the band's documentary - he's getting a HELICOPTER to it.

If you have a burning question for Liam Gallagher, then this is your big chance as the Oasis frontman will fly from London to Manchester to take part in a Q&A session with fans at his hometown premiere screening of the band's documentary Supersonic.

Liam will attend the glitzy red carpet premiere of the film in the capital, before jumping into a private chopper to fly over to the Odeon Printworks in the city centre, in time for the end credits.

Supersonic, directed by Academy Award-winning Mat Whitecross, features extensive unseen archive footage of the Mancunian rockers.

Told in their own words, the documentary charts Oasis' history from the council estates of Manchester to some of the biggest concerts of all time in just three years.

Fans can get a first look of the film at the premiere on Sunday, October 2, at 7.30pm.

Liam and Mat will then take questions from the audience, which will also be simultaneously streamed live to other Odeon cinemas across the country, from 9.30pm. The event is scheduled to finish at 10pm.

Fiery frontman Liam made it his personal ambition to get a premiere for the film back on his home turf - after a Twitter rant at film bosses when he heard they were only planning to launch it in London earlier this year.

Liam said on his Twitter account: "So check this out apparently some clown trying to tell me this film about my band yeah MY band is not premiering in Manchester..."

Clearly Burnage's finest Liam was so keen to ensure Manchester gets the red carpet treatment too that he agreed to get the helicopter ride up here.

We're sure it will bring to mind for many an Oasis fan the video for the band's 1997 hit D'Ya Know What I Mean? Where the band leap out of a chopper in their trademark parkas.

Tickets go on sale on Monday, September 26, which you will be able to buy here

Pizza Pilgrims Is Giving Away Free Pizza If You Bring In An Oasis CD


If you're short on cash but you've got a huge stash of old Britpop CDs, and you love pizza, it's your lucky week.

Pizza chain Pizza Pilgrims have created a limited-edition addition to their menu using cheese by Alex James, Blur bassist and current cheesemaker, called the 'Song (Blue)' (like the Blur hit 'Song 2', geddit?).

As well as a tasty new topping, the collaboration is offering an amnesty to Oasis fans. If you've got one of the Gallagher brothers' albums, dig it out and take it to your nearest Pizza Pilgrims, because they're putting to bed the Blur vs Oasis feud that dominated mid-'90s Britpop, with free pizza in exchange for your old Oasis CDs.

From September 13 to October 4, every person who hands over an Oasis CD and orders the Song (Blue) pizza will get their food for free. Some Might Say that's too good of an offer to miss, so don't let it Slide Away.

The offer is available at all four Pizza Pilgrims restaurants, only on the Song (Blue) pizza.

Watch 'Oasis In Their Own Words' On The BBC iPlayer Later This Month


In August 1994, Oasis blazed onto the music scene with their debut album Definitely Maybe going straight to #1. They would go on to break the charts and send the tabloids in to a spin with their rock ‘n ’roll lifestyle, infighting and success.

The era of Britpop was born and propelled the band to eight UK #1 albums and singles respectively, before finally the notorious Gallagher rift fractured the band for good, 15 years after their emergence.

Featuring footage and interviews from throughout their career, Oasis In Their Own Words charts the band’s meteoric rise from Manchester lads to the biggest band of their generation.

Confirmed for BBC iPlayer from 7am on 30 September (UK Only).
