Another On This Day In Oasis History...


The boozy scuffle on a boat to Amsterdam resulted in the band’s arrest and deportation back to the UK on what would have been their first gig overseas on February 8th 1994.

“The drink of choice for a few hours was Champagne and Jack Daniels (during the trip),” producer Mark Coyle recalls in the clip.

“The next thing, sporadic fighting is breaking out all round us and Liam got very excited by the prospect of a lot of chaos going on and he goes and joins in,” he continues. “You can see him running through the windows along the deck. He’s having a great time. It looks like he’s in a school playground chasing leaves. The next time I see Liam he’s still running up. He’s got policemen running after him.”

“As the fight broke out all I remember was it was a bit Benny Hill,” Liam adds. “It was fucking mayhem man, I loved it. It was punk rock man.”

Noel Gallagher recalls: “I called (Alan) McGee and I’ll never forget this and this is another reason why I love McGee, I said: ‘Are you sitting down? I’ve got some news, everybody has been arrested’. The only word he said was (adopts Scottish accent) ‘brilliant’.”
