Oasis Fanzine A Special Treat For Concert Goers This Summer
Oasis fans are in for a treat with the launch of a fanzine dedicated to the Mancunian rockers ahead of their Sunderland gig.
A Love Supreme workers have taken a break in between writing about football to produce a magazine with all things Oasis inside.
Martyn McFadden, A Love Supreme boss, said: "There are a lot of people who work on the fanzine who are big music fans, so we thought why not do an Oasis fanzine?
"Oasis coming is something big that's happening in the city and it's good for Sunderland, so we felt we had to do something.
"It's been really refreshing and we've had a lot of help from fans across the world who have travelled far and wide to see them."
Super-fans from across the globe were happy to help with the magazine, Some Might Say, and people from as far afield as Australia wrote in with their memories of Liam, Noel and Co.
And so far the fanzine has proved so popular they have been snapped up to sell at Oasis's other gigs, including in Manchester and Edinburgh.
The magazine contains a review from a devout fan who went to a gig at Manchester University before they made it big back in 1994, an interview with Noel Gallagher, a four-page feature on the history of the band, a Noel versus Liam face-off and the top 10 Oasis tunes.
Radio Newcastle presenter Anthony Simpson talks about how, when he heard them on the radio when they first stormed the music scene, he decided to pack in his job working in a warehouse to pursue a career in music.
Martyn said: "Oasis are quite like Sunderland AFC in that people are so passionate about them.
"The more we got working on it the more we found that out.
"Making the magazine has been a nice diversion from writing about the second half of the season, which has been horrible.
"It's been cheering us up in the office in between Sunderland losing games."
