      'Mancs for the memories'

    A DECADE is a long time in rock and roll. But for Oasis brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher, it marks 10 years at the top - 10 years that started right here in Liverpool.

    Famously Mancunian, the swag-gering pair actually took the first steps in their musical careers at this end of the M62.

    And the Liverpool connection is well-documented on a DVD that is about to be released to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the band's first album, Definitely Maybe.

    Described by some as the best British album ever, it marked a whole new era of music in the UK: Oasis were the band that Britain had been waiting for.

    With their arrogance, their attitude, their working-class hero out-look, and their love lives, they were perfect tabloid fodder. But many forget that the main reason they made it was because of their songs - and their early hits, like Supersonic, Live Forever and Shaker Maker.

    Later, we had Wonderwall, Some Might Say, and a host of other near-perfect pop singles.

    Definitely Maybe - The DVD features not only the album, but a documentary about the recording of the album, along with interviews with family, friends, and former band members.

    One of the highlights is a visit to Liverpool - Liam and Noel return to what was then the Pink Museum, off Lark Lane, where they worked on Supersonic.

    The Gallaghers first came into contact with their Liverpool pals when local band The Real People were supporting Manchester group The Inspiral Carpets on tour.

    Noel was their guitar 'roadie' - but also in a budding band, with his younger brother, 'our kid Liam'.

    Chris and Tony Griffiths of The Real People, another musical brother team, met up with them during the tour. Noel speaks fondly of them: "We just sat up playing guitars with them all night and there was something there. We became mates."

    Tony says: "The stuff was really raw at first, and I like to think you can notice the influence we had. We worked with them on producing, and on the singing and stuff - Chris would sing and then Liam would sing after him.

    "Liam was always acting like a star - he was always a cocky little b******. But he knows it, and he doesn't really mean it - you just don't have to take him seriously!"

    The Griffiths brothers helped Oasis record what became their first demo - the one that got them signed to Creation Records, and launched their career. Creation boss Alan McGee says on the DVD: "I wanted to sign them when I saw them but then I put this tape on and it just blew me away."

      Rick Rubin to produce Oasis ?

    That's what Liam Howlett told an interviewer in Argentina on the 27th of this month. Below is the original out take with a very loose English translation:

    -No es tan así. Me alegró saber que el productor de Oasis es ahora Rick Rubin. Es muy talentoso, es el mejor productor del mundo. Algunos de los álbumes de Rage Against The Machine que produjo, en especial el último, eran tan abundantes de cosas, tan ricos, que tenían un sonido increíble.

    -De todas formas, debe ser muy caro contratarlo...

    -Sí, pero ellos pueden soportar ese gasto, ¿no es cierto? (Risas.)


    He (Liam Gallagher) acknowledged to me that the producer of Oasis is now Rick Rubin. He is very talented, he's the best producer of the world. Some of the albums of Rage Against The Machine which he produced, especially the last one, were so abundant of things, so rich, that they had an incredible sound.

    - In any case, it must be very expensive to hire him...

    - Yes, but they can support that cost, perhaps? (Laughter.)

      Sunday Times celebrates Oasis anniversary

    The Sunday Times is celebrating the first birthday of its entertainment CD-Rom The Month by including exclusive footage from the forthcoming anniversary DVD of Oasis's Definitely Maybe.

    The Sunday Times became the first newspaper in the world to produce a digital section on CD-Rom when it launched The Month last August. The Month contains movie, music and video game previews. The anniversary edition will feature more than five minutes of footage from Definitely Maybe, including live and televised performance clips and excerpts from an hour-long documentary about the recording of the album, which launched Oasis and became the biggest-selling debut album in Britain when released in 1994. Definitely Maybe, which includes classic tracks 'Cigarettes and Alcohol', 'Supersonic', 'Rock 'n' Roll Star' and 'Shakermaker', was recently named "best British album ever" by Q. The Definitely Maybe DVD will be released on September 5. The Sunday Times hopes the Oasis DVD preview will help it pick up thousands of extra sales, repeating the success of its previous Oasis promotion. The paper achieved its second-highest sale in June 2002, when it gave away a cover-mounted CD containing unreleased songs from the 'Heathen Chemistry' album. Times Online will offer readers the chance to win one of 10 signed, limited-edition copies of the Definitely Maybe track Columbia, which was never released as a single, along with 10 copies of the DVD and a Sony recordable DVD player. The anniversary is being supported by a national television and radio ad campaign and extensive sampling of a special promotional Best of The Month CD-Rom. [...]

      1997 Oasis Radio Shocker

    The week's show : 1997 - Noel and Liam Gallagher on the Evening Session

    LISTEN TO THE SHOW

    We go back to the 23rd of October 1997 and that Oasis interview.

    Yes, it's the curse-a-thon that was front page news and prompted The Sun headline '4 Letter Oasis in Radio 1 shocker'.

    Noel and Liam had been reclusive during the launch of their 3rd album 'Be Here Now', and hadn't done a major interview together since 1994, but when Noel made a last minute decision to offer Steve Lamacq and the Evening Session an exclusive interview he took everyone by surprise by showing up with Liam.

    If you haven't heard the interview before, we must warn you, it's rather spicy with more than a generous helping of swearing and drug references. So if you are easily offended, or a young un, we advise you not to listen.

    At times thrilling, at others, to many people, offensive, Steve and his production team do all they can to rein in a band they and their audience want to hear, but who have suddenly sidestepped all the rules of live broadcasting.

    It's also worth noting that Liam had offered to punch Lamo's lights out just before they went on air!

    Available to listen to until 29.08.04. LISTEN

      Looking back in anger



    Robbie Williams has spilled the beans on his rollercoaster relationship with Oasis stars Liam and Noel Gallagher.

    The former boy band member's forthcoming autobiography, Feel, reveals how he fell out with both brothers.


    "I went from Noel's mate to him keeping his distance and me being mates with Liam," the Daily Mirror quotes from the book. "For a while, it felt great. "But Liam was really paranoid about everything. It's dreadfully sad for him."

    Robbie says the Gallagher brothers started to shun him because it was no longer cool to hang out with the "screwed-up kid from Take That". "It wound me up because I really loved them and admired them for a while," he says. The 30-year-old says he managed to end his feud with Liam but Noel refused because he "absolutely hates me".

    Robbie later wrote a letter to Noel alluding to his record-breaking three-concert stint at Knebworth. "PS: Finding it difficult to find adequate support for the show. What are you doing on the 1st and 2nd? Oh, and the 3rd?," it said.

      Alan Mcgee on Oasis

    THIS BAND WILL LIVE FOREVER .. AND I DON'T MEAN MAYBE


    ALAN McGee will never forget the traumatic moment when he realised Oasis were about to go supersonic.

    'I was holed up in Glasgow recovering from my drug addiction in the middle of this hugely depressing scenario,' revealed the Scots pop mogul. 'Oasis had just recorded their 1994 debut album, Definitely Maybe for my label, Creation Records. 'They were appearing on The Word - on Channel Four - performing first single, Supersonic.

    'I switched on my TV and thought: 'f****** hell we've actually done it'. The camera focused on Liam Gallagher and I couldn't believe what I was seeing. It was amazing.
    'That was probably the highest point I've ever had with Oasis because I was so low personally.' 'It was even greater than discovering them at King Tut's on May 18, 1993. 'I realised I'd fulfilled my dream. I'd found this amazing rock band who would, to date, sell 41 million records worldwide.'

    Last week, McGee took a look back at Oasis' turbulent career to coincide with the 10th anniversary of that debut album. McGee reckons Oasis can live forever, saying: 'You ain't seen nothing yet.' Here are his highlights of 10 mad, musical years with Oasis.

    best secret

    As a songwriter, Noel Gallagher is Oasis' secret weapon. He's an incredible musician.

    He wrote Masterplan, which I rate as one of the greatest songs of the last 20 years. Noel is always being slagged off for weak lyrics but listen to the words of this song - they're stunning.

    In recent years, Noel has come up with other classic tracks such asGo Let It Out and Stop Crying Your Heart Out.

    What Oasis need to do in future is put 10 great songs on a record, not just one or two.

    best brother

    LIAM has complete and utter self confidence in his ability. He's a nutter, incredibly talented and is an amazing vocalist. He has as much attitude as he has music ability.

    For me, there's Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Johnny Rotten and Liam Gallagher. He's up there with the best. Oasis got so big so fast. Liam didn't know the rules about growing up in the music industry. That was an advantage because he never got corrupted by it. He refused to lick anyone's a***.

    One minute, Liam was on the dole queue, the next he was a multi-millionaire rock idol. He missed out the weary slog in the middle most other artists have to face. But Noel is a genius. As the years roll on, I think he gets more and more underrated. He doesn't get enough credit. Some people think Oasis are not moving music on. But who's really done that? The Beatles. The Rolling Stones. David Bowie. Only a select few. Oasis' songs still define a generation.

    best gig

    I'M in the minority... I thought Oasis were brilliant at Glastonbury. What was so great about them? I can sum that up in two words - Liam Gallagher. He looked stunning. Nobody has that kind of attitude or sheer presence on a stage. I think that, 10 years from now, Oasis could still be selling out venues the size of Wembley Stadium to 80,000 fans. What's to stop them? They're one of the best live acts on the planet.

    best bust up

    THEY fight like cat and dog but underneath it all Liam and Noel basically love each other. Despite all the fights they'll always be there for each other. One night I was DJ-ing at my club Death Disco when Liam wanted to talk. I was playing Girls Girls Girls by Motley Crue and couldn't hear what he was saying. So Liam just lifted the needle off the record - mid-song - and had his conversation. The club came to a standstill. You can either take great offence or see it for what it was - a great rock 'n' roll moment. He's a nutter. The public will never get fed up with Liam's antics. You never know what he'll do next.

    best songs

    I THINK Oasis can go on for another 10 years because their catalogue of songs is so excep-tional. Liam and Noel still have more great albums in them. In terms of new material, it could be said they've gone off the boil. But as Chuck Berry once said: 'How many good songs do you need?' Oasis still have 20 better songs than most other bands. The only danger is Liam and Noel might get fed up and musically take a break from each other. Don't worry, they'll both make great records.

    best ever

    I'M incredibly proud of having found Oasis. I DJ all over the world with my Death Disco club night. It's amazing appearing in a place such as Dublin and for brickies to come and say: 'You changed my life.' First time they do it you think they're taking the p***. After the 14th time you realise they mean it. Musically, I don't think I'll ever discover another group of the stature of Oasis. They changed the whole landscape of UK rock music.

      Oasis propells cyclist to Gold medal

    BRADLEY Wiggins has dreamed of winning Olympic gold for 12 years - and plotted for two to beat his rival and friend Brad McGee in the individual pursuit - and he finally fulfilled both ambitions yesterday. Wiggins won Britain's second cycling gold of the Games with a win over McGee, the man who had beaten him in the final of the Commonwealth Games two years ago.

    The Londoner was overwhelmed by his success. "This means more to me than anything I'll ever do in my career," he said. "I'd be happy if I never win anything ever again."

    Wiggins was inspired to chase his Olympic medal by watching Chris Boardman win the pursuit in Barcelona. And the pressure, when his opportunity came, was nearly too much for him to bear even though he had set a new Olympic record in the qualifying round. "I sort of had a grip of it, but it was horrible," he said. "I was almost at the point of saying, 'that's it I'm getting out of here.'

    "I'd like to thank Noel and Liam Gallagher for helping me at that point on my iPod."

    With Oasis' Champagne Supernova ringing in his ears, he got on his bike and hammered round the track.

      Oasis wanted for film score

    A cousin of Noel and Liam Gallagher today appealed for the Oasis stars to consider writing the music score for a £14 million (20 million euro) movie being filmed in Ireland next year.

    Fintan Cullen Gallagher is finding actors, crew and music for Lang Syne Films` latest production based on one of Ireland`s most popular ballads, The Green Fields of France.

    Mr Cullen Gallagher said: "We have been finding it difficult to get in contact with Liam and Noel. But we would like to discuss the possibility of Noel writing the score and maybe making a cameo appearance as it would give it the height of international flavour if Noel gets involved."

    He added: "I only met the pair once and we chatted but they hardly know me. I thought it might be something they might be interested in as it includes the UK and Ireland and they are of Irish descent.

    "We have made many attempts to get the boys on the phone to discuss the possibility of working together on this great film project, several contacts with the Gallaghers` record company and the boys` management has proved unsuccessful to date."

    The script, which was written by Ned Stuart of the US production company Lang Syne Films, centres around Willie McBride, the 19-year-old soldier whose death in the First World War was immortalised in Eric Bogle`s ballad, The Green Fields of France.
    Stuart fictionalised the life of Private McBride for the screen adaptation, called The Last Parade, but has tried to keep it historically accurate.
    In the script Private McBride is a boxer who joins the army in Enniskillen before he meets his death on the war fields in France.Mr Cullen Gallagher said all of the film crew - from make-up artists to camera operators - were being sourced in Ireland. Irish actor Chris Feeney, who is being considered for a main role in the production, was instrumental in bringing the film to Ireland.

    Feeney met the film company owner at an airport several years ago and has worked with him over the production of the project since.

      Robbie and Noel to appear on new TV series

    The Sun today reports that the new series of Friday Night with Jonathan Ross will feature Robbie Williams.

    Recent reports suggested that Williams had snubbed the big name chatshow hosts, such as Michael Parkinson, and Jonathan Ross, instead opting to be interviewed by Ant and Dec.

    The new series kicks off on September 3rd, and will feature Noel Gallagher from Oasis, and Barbara Windsor. Parky's new ITV show will debut on September 4th and include guests movie stars Tom Cruise and Kate Winslet, and comedian Ricky Gervais.

      Oasis and Stoneroses at Reading 05 ?

    Vince Power from uber music promoter Mean Fiddler has been talking to Xfm about his dream line up for the Carling Weekend: Leeds and Reading Festival, and plans to expand Glastonbury next year.

    As the upcoming Carling Weekender goes from strength to strength, with the Reading leg of the event selling out well in advance Mean Fiddler’s Vince Power has been talking about the event.

    “Reading in the last couple of years has sold out very, very quickly. We’ve been sold out for three months now. We’ve noticed, in the last three years at least, a real appetite for live music again and Reading is all about live music, and also very much about the bands that are around at the time.”

    As for Power’s dream line up for the event, some of his choices seem a little tough to realise, one being permanently disbanded, and another seemingly destined never to reunite.

    “That’s the prize question isn’t it?” he said, “You’d have to have the Clash, and I’d love to have Oasis again they were great at Reading. But my personal choices wouldn’t really be ‘Reading’ bands, they’d definitely be money losers.

    “It’d be nice to get the Stone Roses back together,” he continued. Reminded of Ian Brown’s recent announcement that he’d never reform the band, Power laughed, “That’s almost like saying ‘How much?’ Hopefully he’s listening; it might put the idea in his head.”

    The Mean Fiddler has also been closely tied in with organising Glastonbury for the past four years, and (despite some occasional differences of opinion between Glasto founder Michael Eavis) the festival has been going from strength to strength

    “Glastonbury’s a great event and this year was very successful,” Power continued, “Apart from the weather and even that wasn’t that bad. It [the relationship between Mean Fiddler and Eavis] has been a marriage of convenience more than love, but we’re getting there and it gets better every year. We’re working on it, and it’s a festival to be proud of. Its an institution Glastonbury, it's such a big festival and a big thing in people’s minds.”

    As for the much discussed expansion of the event’s size for 2005, Power wasn’t definite, but revealed Mean Fiddler hopes to increase the ticket numbers.

    “I’d have to check, but I think we’re going for a capacity increase, he explained, “Probably by about 15,000 which would take it up to 130,000… if we get it.”

      Liam talks. New clips and new T-shirts

    Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and quashed rumours the band set to split.



    Rumours of a rift have been circulating since the band played a widely-panned set at the Glastonbury Festival in June, with their performance even being labelled "a bit disappointing" by the event's organiser Michael Eavis.

    Liam dismisses talk of an imminent parting of ways. He said: "Oasis are rocking. Every band has the odd bust-up and we sacked our drummer, but that's no big deal. It happens. But we are strong and ready to take on the world."

      Help album rereleased

    The legendary 'HELP' album is set for a new digital lease of life.

    Recorded and released in one week in September 1995, 'Help' was put together by the War Child charity to raise money for the victims of the war in the former Yugoslavia.

    It featured exclusive material from artists like Radiohead, Manic Street Preachers, Orbital and Oasis, and became the fastest-ever Number One hit in UK music history.

    Now, the album is to be reissued digitally to mark the launch of new charity download service warchildmusic.com.

    Site director James Topham said: "Every track - and we're after everything from covers to acoustic versions, live recordings, alternative mixes, remixes or simply unreleased tunes - will be exclusive to Warchild Music. This is an ongoing project which we're sure will quickly become essential for artists and fans alike. Although the profits are going to charity, the site is all about music."

    The tracklisting for 'Help' is:

    Oasis and Friends - 'Fade Away'

    Boo Radleys - 'Oh Brother'
    Stone Roses - 'Love Spreads'
