Oasis (2)

Profile:
Rock band from Burnage, Manchester, formed in 1991.
Formed out of the ashes of a band called The Rain (consisting of Paul McGuigan, Paul Arthurs, Tony McCarroll and Chris Hutton on vocals) who started in 1990. Chris was sacked and Liam Gallagher took over on vocals. His brother Noel Gallagher (former guitar roadie for Inspiral Carpets' Clint Boon) then joined as songwriter and additional guitarist.
In 1999, two of the founding members (Guigsy and Bonehead) left the group and Noel played their parts on the fourth album. Two new musicians were recruited - Gem Archer and Andy Bell (2) - initially for touring duties, but became full-time and were part of the songwriting process on the following albums.
On August 28, 2009, Noel announced that he was leaving the band after an altercation with Liam. The remaining members continue performing as Beady Eye, while Noel formed Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.

Poor Oasis. They've split up and now Slowdive is back together. The universe really does have a way of balancing things out, doesn't it?

Noel had the songs and Liam had the attitude. On their own, they would have been good, but together they were great.

One of the most enigmatic band of all time to have ever graced planet earth! Oasis is the best that ever existed and will forever be! Sad that they disbanded for whichever reason! Gas Panic! Nuff said <3

A true rags-to-riches rock 'n roll band in every sense. They didn't have a care in the world what people thought of them. They wanted to make classic, loud, proper rock tunes, please the fans, insult every interviewer possible and basically have a great time not caring who gets in their way. Noel churned after hook after hook with pretty much all of their albums while effortlessly crafting awesome B-sides. The Gallagher's fought, argued and had a love/hate relationship all the way up until the end. Here's to hoping they do a proper reunion tour one day. Mad fer it!

The quintessential "anyone can do it" rock band, Oasis were signed to Creation Records following their storming of an 18 Wheeler show, demanding that label-boss Alan McGee allow them to perform. This successful brand of "laddishness" has helped them become England's kings of rock 'n' roll in the '90s while doing a fair amount of barnstorming in America. Their simple, effective blend of T-Rex swagger, Johnny Rotten sneer, and Beatles melodies has proved to be a winning formula. Known as much for their antics as for their music, the brothers Gallagher have involved the public in their own personal temper tantrums, brought the Cocaine Ego back from the '70s, and once ashed on Mick Jagger's head. Controversies aside, they've managed to write some genuinely effective music and revitalize the spirit of rock 'n' roll with only a modicum of copyright infringement lawsuits.
However, were they original....Err no, as mentioned below the 2 bands they really ripped off were the Beatles and the stone roses, Liam tried to be a cross between Ian Brown and John Lennon! the only talented one in the group was Noel, there riffs and basslines became so samey, that for anyone learning guitar its normally oasis songs they are taught to learn first. Most influential band ever....behave! more influential than the Beatles, joy division, Pink Floyd and led zeppelin? best band of all time....err think not, have people not heard of the clash, the jam, rolling stones etc, they did write some good songs but yet so did Genesis yet no-one calls them the best band ever.
Im afraid i would have to place oasis in the same pen as bands like The Smiths, nirvana, guns 'n' roses, iron maiden as the most over - hyped, over-rated bands of all time, sadly some people don't have a clue ;(

It's easy to have a moan up about Oasis. At the end of the day, they wrote some great stuff, ripped off The Beatles and made a decent dent on the music scene doing it. For those in the know, their best songs were their B-sides. Shame that the B-side is pretty much dead these days. Alan McGee deserves everyone's respect as he signed Bob Mould's band Sugar, who were awesome. If you have never heard them then check them out. It's all leading up to the reunion anyway. We all know that Liam had pretty much blown his voice out by the end of it all and, as good as Noel's solo material is, he doesn't have the character in his voice that Liam had. Wonder how quickly the stadiums will sell out next summer when the cheque book comes out. Peace. X
