Love them or hate them, there’s no doubting Oasis’ spot as one of
the greatest musical acts in British history. Yeah, we said it. There we were,
now here we are, indeed.
After shaking up the music industry in the ‘90s, the Mancunian
outfit amassed hit after hit as they swaggered their way to legend status. They
may not have been everybody’s cup of tea, but Oasis didn’t give a flying f…
err, fip. No, these fellas were loud, cocky, and saw themselves as the best
thing to come around since The Beatles.
Even for the haters (i.e. Blur fans), you can’t argue with Oasis’
sales figures and chart rankings. The brothers Gallagher and their merry
cohorts were selling singles and albums faster than Paris Hilton sold One Night
Of course, like so many great bands, it would all come to an explosive
head where key members are left grumpily not speaking to each other for years on end. But that
was part of the charm and the destruction of Oasis.
Getting to the point of it all, then, how well do you know one of
Manchester’s finest exports.
