oasis absolutely rules.

straight forward no nonsense rock 'n' roll. they're not exceptional musicians ('cept Noel) and they're not forging new paths in music but they are just a solid fucking band.

Day 1
No Doubt
Day 2
Oasis
Day 3
Radiohead with Daft Punk playing in the Sahara just to watch people kill themselves over the conflict.....

seeing no doubt as a headliner would be suicidally depressing.

Not a big fan of Oasis but Don't Look Back In Anger and Wonderwall are classic songs.

Don't Look Back In Anger is a great song, but I'm definetely not a big fan either. I would probably see them at Coachella however unless a huge conflict arose.

my first love. (although that should be obvious...)

I still love singing along to the obscure b-sides that no-one else knows. I would have loved to go the acoustic shows noel & gem were doing last year. didn't have the chance though. :-(

I wish noel would get his act together though. I still think their peak was in '96. go watch There & Then and tell me those live shows weren't awesome.

if I could go back, I'd be at knebworth.

my god, that acoustic show was brilliant. i saw the one here in LA and - with a chance encounter and a tip-off (thanks!) - i met noel, gem and zak starkey at a bar near santa monica. it was amazing. even though i play a different style of music, early oasis tunes was the reason why i picked up the guitar.

Oasis = something that provides refuge, relief, or pleasant contrast

Their name says it all.

Yeah, really. How many times do they expect people to buy the same bad cover version over and over again?

No nonsense? Thats the funniest thing I have heard in a while....All they are about is nonsense.

Bunch of crybabies.

Seriously should have seen them at ACL two years ago. It was their first show back in the US and the buzz was all about these guys.

Show started and all the singer (Noel?) did was bitch at the sound guy, throw things around, and stand there like with his back two the crowd like a crybaby. He sang about two to three lines of each song and by the second or third there were about 200 people still watching.

They were the laughing stock of the town that weekend.


That was my Oasis experience.

I have a lot of time for Noel, but i'm fairly whelmed by their musical output (I like the odd song, but there's a lot of filler)

Nice link. Nothing but good things to say about their Coachella (Hollywood Bowl, Inland Invasion, San Diego) performances. People post negative things about their Coachella performance but it was packed that night and everyone was singing to every song.

Their performance at Glastonbury was fucking insane from what I've seen. Imagine 250k people ALL singing along to Don't Look Back In Anger.

their performance at 2000 leeds and reading made me tingly. Standing on the stage with noel and liam next to me watching primal scream was epic. then 60,000 people singing "i am the resurrection" stone roses song just before oasis took the stage was mind blowing. Oasis was rumored to be breaking up and had some big announcement to make after the show, haha the announcement was they were gonna go party after. oh what a great show that was.

Sorry, but I can't stand Oasis. "Whats the Story..." was good for a while, but they aren't nearly as great as they think they are. Also, the fact that they haven't put out a decent album since then says something.

Heathen Chemistry is at least 40 percent awesome.

did anyone see lord don't slow me down? my then-boyfriend was working for sony and there were all kinds of stop the clocks promos going on, one being a screening of that documentary at a local theatre. it was actually really interesting and i wound up with all kinds of posters and junk (but i have no idea what happened to them).

Was that the one they screened before Noel's solo performance?

I can't think of another band in the last fifteen years whose songs are more tailor-made for the anthemic singalong.

Lord Don't Slow Me Down was great. The song of the same title was nice too. And the acoustic show following the screening was awesome. Next time they tour Britain my friend who attended Coachella with me this year and I are going to get tickets to a show.

In regard to their albums, Definitely Maybe and WTSMG are masterpieces. Be Here Now is a bloated mess, but if the songs were cut down about 3 minutes each, it would be awesome. SOTSOG has some good tunes but also some crap. Heathen Chemistry is underrated...there are some really good songs on that one. And Don't Believe The Truth was really a return to form...their best since WTSMG. Plus, all those B-Sides...the There And Then DVD...ridiculous.

of all the bands that do the same thing over and over again, Oasis do it the best. in fact they might be the only band that do it reasonably well.

having said that, I really enjoy the un-oasis pieces Noel has comes up with from time to time, such as Fuckin' in the Bushes, Teotihuacan... I think that's it actually. he needs to expirement more, but he seems to hate it when bands take new directions.
