From the Organizers:
The event has been be organised by Cooking Soup to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of one of the greatest debut Albums of all time.
Cooking soup is run by arguably one of Oasis’s biggest fans. He saw the band 100 times starting in 1993 and even let the band use his tickets stubs for the exhibition. Some of his tales following the band from 1993-1994 feature prominently in the excellent Supersonic – Personal Situations book that has been recently released. His attention to detail will ensure this is the best Oasis party there has been.
The event at London’s iconic Scala will be on Saturday 30.8.14 exactly 20 years to the day the album was released.
The event will feature the only tribute band that Liam has officially recognised-Oasis UK.
The band will play the album in full and most of the B sides in a full 90 minute set. The band are famed for using the same visuals Oasis used on later tours and they have promised to create a unique 1994 montage to accompany their performance. The band are about to embark on a UK Theatre tour as they cement their position as the number 1 tribute band. Surely the arena’s will follow soon !
As a nod to Britpop’s 20th Anniversary, the band have asked Blurd to be main support on the night. Wonder how they will be received ?
Opening for the band will be official Oasis & NHFB DJ Phil Smith. Soup resident, Phil will play the same tunes he played before Oasis came on in Stadiums across the globe.
Exclusive Oasis Content - He has also agreed to let exclusive never seen before Photos and memorabilia owned by him to be displayed on the Venues screens throughout the night. The photos were taken on the road and in the studio with the band during 93-94 and weren’t even shown in the exhibition. Phil had unprecedented access to the band and these photos are truly an amazing capture of the bands rise to the top.
These are the rarest photos of Oasis still not seen in public and despite many offers Phil prefers to keep these for his own collection. He is Soups resident DJ so we have been given access to them for this one-off celebration.
Continuing with the Oasis Theme, a room will be hosted by Italian Oasis fanatic Fabio. Fabio ran the famous Wonderwall fanzine for years and host’s the infamous Oasis parties all across Italy. He has on occasion managed to get Bonehead to play with the tribute acts he books. I wonder….This is the first time his night has been hosted outside of Italy.
The other rooms will be given up to club nights associated with the Britpop/Manchester. Camden’s best night COOL BRITANNIA will host the foyer bar and we are pleased to announce the return of seminal London club night COME TOGETHER to host the main room. This event was legendary across South London from 1994-1999 and the djs played at such nights at IT & Popscene. Steve from influential Gigslutz music blog will be djing for us and more guests are sure to be added nearer the event.
All in all, this truly is the biggest Oasis celebration there has been and it’s the nearest you will get to seeing the band at their peak of 1994 again.
