      Ringo on new Oasis album ?

    Noel Gallagher, the man Oasis simply refer to as ‘The Guvnor’, has been talking exclusively to Xfm Online about Liam’s new songs, going out on tour again "sharpish" and recording with one of The Beatles.

    Gallagher explained that Oasis are about to travel to Los Angeles to complete work on their highly anticipated, and as-yet-untitled new album, where (after the departure of drummer Alan White) the band will be enlisting the help of
    former Beatle
    Ringo Starr’s
    son Zak Starkey. Starkey filled the drum stool for the band’s recent Glastonbury Festival appearance, and Noel explained that he also wants Zak's father on the record too.

    “Zak will drum on the bulk of it,” he explained to Xfm, “And we’re gonna try - while we’re out there - to get his Dad down the studio cos he lives in LA. So we’re gonna try and get him on cos we’ve got this one song which is quite… well, fucking funnily enough, it sounds like The Beatles, and we’re gonna try and get him and his Dad on the same track. Then again Ringo might just tell us to f**k off.”

    Apart from Glastonbury and one-off concerts at Watford Colosseum and the Albert Hall, Oasis haven’t undertaken a fullUK tour since summer July 2002, but as soon as the album’s finished the band will definitely be hitting the road.

    “To be honest,” Noel continued, “We spent that much money f**king pissing about on the new album we’ll be touring it for the next four years. So by the time this next album cycle comes around everyone will be sick to f**king death of Oasis. We’ll have to play London fifteen times I’d have thought, but we'll have to start doing gigs sharpish.”

    As for the material on the new album, Noel has confirmed rumours that his brother, frontman Liam Gallagher, has been busy writing some impressive new songs.

    “He [Liam] has been writing tonnes. He’s probably writing as we f**king speak. He’s written loads and loads and loads. He’s doing okay at the writing, he’s got a few belters. His songs are really coming on. Considering he can’t play a f**king note on the guitar he’s doing alright.”

      Signed Backstage Passes on auction



    Ian Brown’s
    tour manager Hugh Calder has announced he is auctioning signed singles and albums and backstage passes to every date of Ian Brown’s forthcoming sold-out tour to raise money for charity.

    A pair of guest list, backstage and aftershow passes are available for each date as well as signed copies of current single ‘Keep What Ya Got’ and album ‘Solarized’ and each package is currently under auction at Ebay

    The signed goods have also been signed by Noel Gallagher and were actually signed in the Xfm studios the day the pair dropped in on Sarah Darling and Music:Response for a live session.

    Each set is currently retailing for between £100 and £200 with money raised from the auction going to First Opportunities, a special therapy playgroup for babies and children with special needs, currently under the threat of closure.

    "The reason for this,” Calder explains on the site, “Both my children are at this school. And guest list and autographed promos cost me nothing. But the money raised from this auction is needed for my children and their classmates.

    “There will be a collection box at the T-Shirt stall on the tour, please give what you can. Many thanks… H. Calder (Mr. Brown’s Tour Manager / Chief Chimp)

    Bidding for the prizes ends on October 4

      Noel Gallagher blasts Liam's tunes

    Noel Gallagher is refusing to allow any of his brother Liam's songs to appear on the next Oasis album.

    Earlier this summer, the group scrapped some tracks following a disappointing performance at Britain's Glastonbury Music Festival, and
    now Noel is taking extra care over the disc.

    He says: "Liam's written quite a lot, it's a pity they are not going to make it. Some of them are really good, but he's going to have to do a solo tour because I'm not doing a triple album."

      New Album date confirmed

    As previously reported by Live4ever.us Noel Gallagher has now confirmed the new album release date on the Tim Lovejoy show . Noel also mentioned this date to Canadian Rock Station 102.1 The Edge a few days back.

    +++

    NOEL GALLAGHER has revealed the release date of the new OASIS album.

    Talking last night (September 22) on new Sky One show Tim Lovejoy And The Allstars, Noel revealed that the band have set themselves a deadline of May 26 next year to release the long-overdue album.

    He said: "May 26. We’ve got a release date now, which is why it’s been meandering for a bit because we’ve not had a date to work to because we’re extremely successful. So they just say ‘Alright, finish when you finish’ – but it’s kind of been rambling on and not working too hard on it but now we have to have it finished by May 26."

    Following their critically-mauled headline show at Glastonbury, Oasis scrapped sessions intended for the follow-up to ‘Heathen Chemistry’, which included a period recording with Death In Vegas.

    Noel also revealed last night that brother Liam is becoming ever more prolific as a songwriter. "He’s written a few. It’s a pity they’re not going to make it onto the album. We’ve demoed 66 songs and he’s written a fair few. Some of them are really good but he’s going to have to do a solo tour ‘cause I’m not doing a triple album."

    Also appearing on the show were the Happy Mondays, who made their first television appearance for eight years, since being banned from Channel 4. Other guests included footballer Stan Collymore and live bands The Ordinary Boys and The Rakes.

      Noel looks back at debut album

    It seems hard to believe that it has been a decade since Oasis arrived on the music scene, waking up the 1990s with strong, guitar-based rock and roll and sweet, Britpop melodies.

    Looking back at their debut album Definitely Maybe, Oasis lead guitarist and songwriter Noel Gallagher gets a positive vibe from the band's creation. "I think it stands up," said Gallagher during a telephone interview from London. "Other people seem to think that it sounds as good in 2004 as it did in '94, and you know what? Who am I to argue about that?"

    Oasis landed on the radar of music listeners in 1994 after being signed to Britain's Creation Records. The Manchester band featured Gallagher on lead guitar and backing vocals, his younger brother Liam provided the trademark Oasis vocals, while guitarist Paul (Bonehead) Arthurs, bassist Paul McGuigan and drummer Tony McCaroll rounded out the lineup.

    Oasis had a signature sound based on prominent musical influences from very different time periods.

    "It was a cross between three bands. It was the Sex Pistols, the Beatles and the Stone Roses," said Gallagher, now 37. "I think if you were to listen to a song by each of those bands, you'd probably think 'Yeah, it kind of sounds like Oasis."'

    Definitely Maybe entered the British record charts at No. 1 and became the fastest-selling debut in British music history. Songs like Supsersonic, Shakermaker and Live Forever would go on to help define the sound of the mid-'90s on both sides of the Atlantic.



    A comprehensive DVD version of Definitely Maybe was released earlier this month.

    "I was heavily involved with all the aspects after the idea was put to me," said Gallagher of the record company's decision to issue the DVD with input from the band.

    Contained on the DVD are crisp, vibrant audio tracks of the entire album, plus live concert footage of every song, promotional videos for most tracks and a detailed documentary featuring the original members of Oasis recounting the recording process of the CD.

    "Because it was such a landmark British album, there's lots and lots of people who, when they hear those songs, they just transport back in time," said Gallagher. "We thought it was best if we were to properly tell the story of how that album came about."

    The documentary feature follows the format of the album song by song, with the occasional sidetrack for anecdotes about songwriting, touring and life in the rock and roll landscape.

    "I think the original draft of the documentary itself was a good two and a half hours long," said Gallagher. "With the album only being about 50 minutes it was decided the documentary shouldn't really be twice the length of the album."

    Asked about what he's most proud of on the album, Gallagher doesn't stop with just one song. He cites Supersonic for its one take recording as a demo, Live Forever for its massive appeal and Slide Away for being written almost by accident in the studio.
    It's one of the best songs on there," said Gallagher of the latter track. He also lists Rock 'n' Roll Star as a standout "because it pretty much said everything in a song that I've ever wanted to say."

    Gallagher is more modest about Oasis's impact on music history than he has been in the past. "I haven't even listened to it lately to get nostalgic or anything like that. I'm busy working on another one," he said of Definitely Maybe and the band's current project. "I only wrote it, what do I know?"

    He anticipates a new Oasis album will arrive in stores next year.

    "It's going really well. This is our third attempt," Gallagher said of the recording process. "The songs that are going to be on the album basically haven't changed. But it's just that the overall sonic quality of the two versions that we've done of it weren't quite right."

    That passionate hunt for just the right sound also plagued the recording process of Definitely Maybe, which similarly underwent three rounds of recording and remixing before the finished product was achieved. The parallels aren't lost on Gallagher.

    "It's quite spooky actually because it's following the same pattern," he said, with a good natured laugh. "So hopefully all the omens point to the same kind of impact, but who knows?"

    Gallagher said Oasis is looking at touring plans in the future.

    "The only way one can make a living is to do gigs," he said, referring to the current economic state of the music industry. "People can't download a gig yet, so at least we've got that," he joked.

    But don't get him wrong. Gallagher has the heart and soul of a pure rock and roller.

    "Rock and roll's not about money, is it?" he said. "It's about getting up, doing what you want, turn yourself on, going to bed at night thinking well, it was a great day, I hope I wake up in the morning."

    For Gallagher, the secret to success in music is simple.

    "If people dig it live, then they clap," he said. "If they don't clap, then they don't dig it. There you go."

      Liam Makes A Messy Meal Of it



    It's the sort of thing that can empty restaurants within seconds. A diner who eats like a pig.

    Forgiveable, perhaps, of someone not used to the etiquette of eating out but Liam Gallagher really should know better. The Oasis star must surely have had more restaurant meals than your average punter has had hot dinners. He was snapped at an upmarket eaterie in London's plush St John's Wood dining with wife Nicole Appleton and their son Jean. Throughout their meal - which looked like a pasta dish with side salad - Liam ate with his mouth wide open. Not wide enough, it would seem, as he also kept missing it, spilling the contents of the meal onto his top.

      4 star review for DM DVD

    Oasis - Definitely Maybe (Big Brother) ****

    Ten years on, Definitely Maybe stands unchallenged as the album that defined all that was good about Britpop.

    It certainly makes for a compulsively watchable DVD - like the band, it is brash, blunt and bolshy - and as a collection of songs and performances Definitely Maybe is still easily the best thing Oasis have done.

    You can view the album here either as a series of arty montages set to the original track listing, or as a string of contemporary live performances, again in album order, culled from various TV appearances - TOTP, The Word - and live gigs.

    The live tracks prove that they were at best a middling live act, with Liam Gallagher's surly belligerence providing the only real focus as the band plodded through the songs without either charisma or any real sense of showmanship or musicianship.

    But the real meat in the sandwich is the hour-long documentary which features contributions from all the main players.

    Rightly or wrongly, Noel Gallagher cops all the kudos and credit for just about everything, and the impression is that he ruled the band as a benevolent dictatorship. Certainly, bass player Paul McGuigan and drummer Tony McCarroll are all but airbrushed out of the story - it would have been interesting to hear McCarroll's side of his unceremonious removal from the band.

    Credit is due, and given, to Creation Records boss Alan McGee, whose faith in the band and deep pockets allowed them to scrap two versions of the album before finally nailing it at the third attempt.

    But the surprise star of the show is Mani from the Stone Roses, whose garrulous contributions always raise a laugh and represent an unspoken link between the two bands - sometime during the recording of Definitely Maybe and the Roses' much delayed second album the baton of Britain's biggest and best band was passed on.

      Oasis: Ten Years At The Top

    A fusion of raw in-yer-face arrogance, throat-threatening vocal acrobatics and Mancunian rock 'n' roll egotism. Oasis were the definitive Brit band of the Nineties - the aural wallpaper to a generation tiring of dance music and craving old-fashioned rock. Shooting from obscurity to stardom in 1994, Oasis were a working-class band who hero-worshipped The Beatles and The Stone Roses.

    Mad-fer-it

    A quintet who exuded cocksure arrogance and rebelliousness; these mad-fer-it lads aimed to rock out and 'ave it large. Oasis was formed by Liam Gallagher (vocals), Noel Gallagher (guitar/songwriting), Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs (guitar), Paul McGuigan (bass) and Tony McCaroll (drums). A meeting with Alan McGee, head of Creation Records followed. The rest is history.

    Decade-defining

    Ten years ago, Oasis dropped their mind-blowing debut Definitely Maybe, a decade-defining album that kickstarted the Britpop phenomenon. Bulging with rock tunes about roll-ups, booze and dole queues, it was aptly described at the time by NME.
    "Definitely Maybe bucks the trend of cynicism and despair to give us belief in our right to excitement," wrote NME in December 1994.

    Decadence

    And so the Manchester rockers mark the milestone of 10 years of decadence - the DVD edition of their debut album. Featuring the tracks Cigarettes And Alcohol, Rock 'n' Roll Star, Live Forever and Supersonic, it was celebrated as "The Best British Album Ever" by Q Magazine in June 2004. It also became the fastest-selling debut album ever, upon its release in 1994. The DVD features an hour-long documentary about the recording of the album featuring rare interviews with the band, label and entourage.

    Ever-fractious

    It includes Definitely Maybe's 12 era-defining tracks and totals nearly five hours of Oasis music and footage. Headlining Glastonbury 2004, only Liam and Noel remain from the original line-up. The good ship Oasis seemed to run aground, due to the ever-fractious Gallagher brothers becoming more famous for their break ups, designer drugs and designer girlfriends. Having cut their ties with Creation Records, the band are currently in the studio recording their sixth album. Although some might say the supergroup's star has fallen; their die-hard fans know they will live forever. Definitely Maybe: The DVD, which commemorates the ten-year anniversary of this landmark album's release, is out now.

      New problem for Oasis...too many songs

    OASIS say their new album will be out next year - and the only problem now is that they’ve got too many songs.

    The Gallaghers have been working on songs for their sixth studio album for much of the year and famously scrapped their work following the Glastonbury festival. Early sessions with Death In Vegas in the producers’ seat were also aborted.

    However, the band are now back in the studio with producer Dave Sardy, where they started recording from scratch.

    Noel said: "We're working with Dave Sardy who done The Thrills’ album. We sent him a few tracks of this cobbled together stuff to mix and he sent them back and it didn't sound right so we said ‘Why don't you come over and we'll start again?’, so we've completely started from scratch bar one song that has been finished for the last, I don't know, ten years."

    Two new songs played at Glastonbury, titled ‘A Bell Will Ring’, and ’The Meaning Of Soul’, are slated to appear on the album. Speaking recently to NME, Noel said a new song ‘The Importance Of Being Idle’, is one of his current favourites.

    He told NME: "One of the songs on there ‘The Importance Of Being Idle’ is one of the best tunes I have ever written. It is The Kinks meets The La's. It is blinding. We’ve written 66 songs, the majority of which I can’t believe our kid’s done. I’ve only written 14 of them. He’s done most of the rest of them."

    Oasis’ new single is likely to be released in February, with the album to follow. An anniversary DVD of ‘Definitely Maybe’ is out now.

      Gallagher Collaborates With David Brent


    Noel and Ricky during recording session...

    Noel Gallagher, not content with collaborating with Ian Brown, has moved further up the rock hierarchy by teaming up with Ricky Gervais.

    Gallagher will make a special appearance on the 'The Office Christmas Specials' DVD, due for release on October 25. The Oasis singer and guitarist will appear on the extra features of the DVD, providing backing vocals for the series main character David Brent’s song ‘Free Love Freeway’.

    Gallagher apparently asked Jonathan Ross to introduce him to Gervais after watching his recent televised show ‘Politics’. ‘The Making On Free Love Freeway’ appears on the DVD and shows the pair recording a studio version of the song.

    The DVD also looks set to feature the other Brent classic cover of ‘If You Don’t Know Me By Now’.

      'Oasis not trying to reinvent themselves...'

    Ten years ago Oasis burst onto the music scene, managed by a music fan from Ebbw Vale. Claire Hill talks to Marcus Russell about the ups and downs of life in the fast lane

    WHEN Marcus Russell first saw Oasis it was a pretty unremarkable gig - he thinks they were supporting the now defunct band Dodgy. More than 10 years ago the music Noel and Liam Gallagher were drawing upon was the music that the band manager from Ebbw Vale personally loved. While he might have been personally drawn to the band watching them in the Hop and Grape - a small room in Manchester University Students' Union - he never thought they would go on to sell millions. Now they have, and you would think that Russell might add some hyperbole to the story of the discovery of Oasis. But the reality is there has never been any need.

    As soon as Oasis's Definitely Maybe hit the shops in 1994 it started a meteoric rise to fame, newcomers to the music scene followed them and for much of the '90s they had a strong grip over the UK. But how was it looking after the band whose members have a tempestuous relationship with each other and with the media? Russell, sitting in his office in London said, "It was easy. "They were very keen to work. They were very easy to manage and they were rigidly punctual. We'd arrange them to be somewhere and they would be all there ready waiting to go on stage or start work."

    Oasis looked like they just exploded onto the scene, joining the forerunners of Britpop, but the reality was more mundane. "We built up their profile through building up fans and playing live, within about a year we had built it up so they were really well known." Unusually for bands they did not drag their demo to hundreds of record companies, instead settling for their first offer from Alan McGee's Creation, with the backing of Sony. "We got the best of both worlds with that, Creation for the UK and Sony Recording for the rest of the world. "We never went to any recording companies to get a deal and no companies were interested in signing Oasis. "I never took another phone call, no-one was interested and we were happy with that." The band have always been accused of being cocky or arrogant, but Russell maintains that was just confidence about their music. "We knew what we had."

    Ten years down the line the album has been reissued and the band have put together a 4 -hour DVD, which Russell sees as "groundbreaking". A lot of the DVD has been made up with fan footage that the band members had never seen until the past 18 months. "We posted on the website for anyone who thought they had something interesting to share and quite a lot of the fans responded. "We were surprised by how much there was, from TV shows to backstage footage. "Some of it is rough and ready, some are promo videos and others are appearances on the BBC. "It is the kitchen sink and we are very happy with it."

    This is a memento of the past, but after a shaky Glastonbury performance and a recent scrapping of all the songs from their latest album, what is Oasis's future?
    Strong guitar songs coupled with Liam's drawling voice have not changed during the band's 10-year history. And as they step into their new decade, Russell cannot see the arrival of a marked difference.

    "They do not like doing things that are just trendy for that moment, they don't do remixes of their songs and you can probably tell they hate videos. We are looking to the new album now and then a year of touring. "They are not trying to reinvent themselves, but they are working with some good producers and I think they have just written a whole new bunch of songs." After Heathen Chemistry the new one will be their seventh, but Russell, who also manages The Finn Brothers, Mercury Rev and Johnny Marr, isn't that worried about sales. "Playing live has always been our yardstick."

    The current line-up, Liam and Noel Gallagher with Gem Archer and Andy Bell, is a strong one, Russell believes. "Over 10 or 12 years a band would not have been able to sustain itself without things changing. "I think with Liam and Noel, you get what you get in any family. If you told any brother or sister that they would have to live and work with each other for the rest of their life there would be issues and differences. "The creative core of Oasis is always Liam and Noel."

      New interview with Noel and Lamacq

    NOEL GALLAGHER has said that when he first moved to LONDON he didn’t know anyone – and fell into the CAMDEN Britpop scene almost by accident.

    In an interview with Steve Lamacq to be broadcast on BBC 6 Music this weekend (September 12), Gallagher said that when Oasis first broke through he used to go out drinking with strangers.

    He explained: "When I moved to London and although this sounds very very sad, the rest of the band they'd go back up to Manchester and I didn't know anyone in London and I had a flat way out in Chiswick which was miles away.

    ”On a Friday night I just used to get in a cab and the guy said 'Where are you going?' and I'd go like 'Camden High street'. I didn't kind of know anyone but you'll always bump into somebody down Camden and then the next thing it would be Monday afternoon.

    ”So I would constantly be surrounded by strangers. I'd get out (at) Camden station and think ‘Right well I'll go to the Good Mixer’ and the minute you walked in the door somebody would be like that ‘Whey!’ and that would be it. So I was constantly surrounded by these rabbles of people I'd never met before."

    Oasis have just released a DVD of their debut album 'Definitely Maybe’ to coincide with its 10th anniversary.

    The full interview goes out on 6 Music this Sunday (September 12) between 2-5pm.

      Oasis get thumbs down from festival goers

    Oasis have been voted this summer’s worst festival band by music fans after a lacklustre performance at Glastonbury. The Mancunian rockers left some festival-goers disappointed after a set where they barely spoke to the crowds.

    The Gallagher brothers were the headline act on the event’s Friday night but even Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis felt the band did not live up to his expectations.

    At the time he said: “I’m an Oasis fan. I thought it was a good set but the two of them looked a bit grumpy and didn’t talk to the audience at all. “In that sense I was a bit disappointed.”

    In the NME Festival Poll, 42% of those who voted for their worst band of the summer picked Oasis. In second place was The Darkness (26%), then The Strokes (17%) and The Libertines (15%).

    More than 10,000 music fans voted online in the music magazine survey on everything from the best bands to the worst toilets. Despite The Libertines performance being voted a disappointment, Carl Barat was named the Hero Of The Summer by festival-goers. After Pete Doherty’s exit from the band, Barat went on to perform at T in the Park and the Carling Weekend without his fellow frontman.

    Eavis was named runner-up followed by Sir Paul McCartney who attracted the biggest audience of the summer, estimated to be 80,000, at Glastonbury.

    Glastonbury also topped the poll as the best value for money with almost three-quarters of the festivals’ fans saying the ticket price was worth it compared to 68% for V and 60% for the Carling Weekend.

      New Album Update

    OASIS will fly to a Los Angeles recording studio in two weeks to get back to work on their sixth album. It will now be released in March — six months after it was originally due to go on sale.

    NOEL GALLAGHER said: “We have got four tracks down but there is still another six or seven to do. “We’ve spent almost a year recording but we haven’t got the sound right — but the songs are good.”

    Brother LIAM has written lyrics and GEM ARCHER and ANDY BELL will also have songs included.

    Meanwhile Noel said on Aussie TV he hasn’t changed much after a decade of fame, adding: “I still take a lot of pride in drinking and shagging.”

    Album due in February

    NOEL GALLAGHER says he’d still like to release a new OASIS single this year – but the chances of it actually happening are slim.

    The band have spent much of the year working on songs for the follow-up to ’Heathen Chemistry’. Following their appearance at Glastonbury they scrapped the sessions, and have been back in the studio again recently.

    Speaking to Radio 1, Gallagher said that four songs were completed, with a release most likely to come in February 2005.

    He said: “We've finished about 4 tracks now, so I think , hopefully in an ideal world we'll have a single out by the end of the year but it's probably looking like it'll be Feb next year.”

      Homesick Liam

    Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher is tired of London and keen to return to his native northern England.

    The Manchester-born singer has been busy recording new material for the band's upcoming sixth studio album in London - but he claims he's grown sick of the capital and ready to revisit his friends and family in the north.

    He says: "I've just been so busy in the studio recording new stuff and sometimes London just does your head in and it's s***. "But it makes going back north better in a way. I do miss it. Everything is so far apart here, but I'm going to go and see me mam soon."

      The album that started it all

    Oasis : Definitely Maybe DVD Ten years on, the album that started it all. With bells on...

    A decade ago, ‘Definitely Maybe’ saved this writer’s life. Aged ten, unshakable in the conviction that Meat Loaf’s ‘Life Is A Lemon And I Want My Money Back’ was rock’n’roll’s glorious zenith, the alien sight of something as visceral, as confrontational, and as dangerous as Liam Gallagher standing stock-still on Top Of The Pops one night in September 1994, howling the lyrics to ‘Rock’n’Roll Star’ while the crowd of teenage girls around him went absolutely wild was – let’s be honest – something of a mindfuck. It still is. So this extras-laden DVD (including four hours’ worth of documentaries, TV spots, promo videos and hidden goodies) should be welcomed, though with a certain degree of trepidation.

    As Oasis’ first real reissue, it closes the book on ten years of noise and confusion, and cements their position as a band whose place now lies in history and in humourless magazine articles by middle-aged musos rather than in our current rock’n’roll climate. And if the two stinky new tunes they debuted at this year’s Glastonbury hinted that those elusive glory days were now as distant as Bonehead’s hairline, this DVD confirms it – Oasis’ time has well and truly been and gone.

    Yet what a time it was, before success, cocaine and champagne socialism had snuffed out the inferno of ambition that fuelled the recording of this album. It’s captured perfectly by the hour-long, song-by-song documentary that forms by far the most fascinating part of this package. Interviews with everyone from the band’s guitar tech to Burt Bacharach give genuine insight into the writing and recording of the album, not to mention the – ahem – extra-curricular activities that went on behind the scenes (the choicest cut of which has to be Mani's confession of driving a tractor to Oasis’ studio at 2am out of his tree on ’shrooms to steal their drugs).

    It’s also something of an unintentional comedic goldmine, featuring as it does a series of greying gnomic Northerners in oversized parkas coming away with witticisms such as, “They must be the massivest band out of Britain in the last fookin’ 30 years!” (Mani, once again) and, “I’m a pie and chip man! I’ve never ’ad lasagne in me life! I fookin’ hate the meal!” (Digsy, on his dinner).

    And the music itself? Well, you know all about that. It’s strangely fitting that the public domain – where Gallagher senior made so many of his millions – is where these songs now belong. After all, songs like ‘Live Forever’ and ‘Cigarettes & Alcohol’ have long since transcended the fickleness of whatever era they defined and become a part of the British psyche – these songs are yours as much as Noel Gallagher’s.

    That’s not to say there aren’t a few gaps. If this album now belongs to the British public, the British public may wish to disown ‘Digsy’s Dinner’. Similarly, it would have been nice to hear a few outtakes from the two aborted attempts at recording the album, while ‘Sad Song’, the Noel-sung acoustic lament that passes for the album’s ‘bonus’ track, will be familiar to all but the most casual Oasis fans. On a more controversial note, former bassist Guigsy is conspicuous by his absence on the documentary, which is odd, especially considering the much-maligned Tony McCarroll turns up.

    These are minor quibbles, however. For the second time in its short life, ‘Definitely Maybe’ is an indispensable record, and if Oasis never again match its vitality, they can sleep soundly at night knowing they’ve turned the world on its axis at least once.

      'Definitely Drugs'

    Rockers Oasis insist the secret behind their chart-topping debut album Definitely Maybe is copious amounts of drugs.

    The band frequently dropped acid while recording the 1994 CD and boast their inebriated state fuelled their creativity, although occasionally, their drug-inspired tunes horrified them the following morning.

    Noel Gallagher admits: "Everyone was cabbaged beyond belief - 4am in the studio, you're about to eat yourself because you're so f***ing fantastic.

    "You listen back the next morning and it sounds like Trumpton. But I love the album. And not only musically, but for what it meant to people - still means."

    His brother Liam adds: "You're an idiot if you start taking drugs because you're in a band. It just so happens you can get more drugs when you're in a band."

      A first taste of Oasis

    Two months before the release of the band's first single, 'Supersonic', Oasis were still a mere speck on the horizon.

    This track, a demo version of 'Cigarettes and Alcohol', available exclusively to NME readers on the 'Mutha of Creation' cassette (yes) delivered the first taste, built Alan McGee's Creation records into a legendary label, and ultimately kick-started the britpop phenomenon.

      You gotta 'Rolls' with it

    A ROLLS ROYCE car given to NOEL GALLAGHER by ALAN McGEE is being auctioned.

    McGee famously gave Gallagher the car during the band’s mid’90s peak, eventhough Noel didn’t know how to drive.

    Speaking at the time, McGee said: "Noel had always said he wanted a Rolls-Royce if he ever made it, and I suddenly thought why not get him one? He's sold six million records in the last year - if that's what the guy wants I'll buy him a Rolls-Royce. I just loved it as a rock'n'roll gesture."

    Now, the 1978 vintage car is being auctioned on the internet website eBay.

    The seller claims that the metallic brown car remains in good condition and in good working order, and that there’s a vehicle registration document signed by Gallagher himself.

    Bidding started at £9,000 and ends on September 11.
