On This Day In Oasis History...














Definitely Maybe is the debut album by English band Oasis, released on August 29th 1994. It was an immediate commercial and critical success in the UK, having followed on the heels of singles "Supersonic", "Shakermaker" and particularly the popular "Live Forever".

Definitely Maybe went straight to number one and 7x platinum in the UK Album charts on initial release. It was the fastest selling debut album of all time in the UK when released. Definitely Maybe marked the beginning of Oasis' success in America, selling over 1 million copies there, although only reaching #58 on the Billboard 200. The album went on to sell over 7.5 million copies worldwide.

In 1997 Definitely Maybe was named the 14th greatest album of all time in a 'Music of the Millennium' poll conducted by HMV, Channel 4, The Guardian and Classic FM. In 2005 Channel 4's '100 Greatest Albums' countdown placed the album at number 6. In 2006 NME placed the album third in a list of the greatest British albums ever, behind The Stone Roses and The Queen Is Dead. In a recent British poll, run by NME and the book of British Hit Singles and Albums, Definitely Maybe was voted the best album of all time with The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band finishing second and Revolver third. Q magazine readers placed it at five on their greatest albums of all time list in 2006 and in that same year NME hailed it as the greatest album of all time. It is frequently referred to as the greatest debut album of all time.

Album History
In 1994, Oasis were seen as a distant echo of the moribund 'Madchester' scene which had exploded in the early 1990s. Unlike other Madchester bands who indulged in experiments with funk, dance or hip-hop, Oasis presented themselves as a relatively straightforward rock and roll band. Along with bands like Blur and The Verve they seemed to encapsulate a new wave, one which did not yet have a name. By the end of the year the media coined the term Britpop, of which Definitely Maybe retrospectively became one of the pivotal albums.





















Many of the songs had originally appeared on Oasis' "Live Demonstration" demo recorded in Liverpool the year before with Chris and Tony Griffiths of The Real People. The main recording sessions took longer than expected, with the bulk of the album having to be recorded three different times with Mark Coyle producing, before Owen Morris came up with a mix that everyone was satisfied with. The album cost nearly £85,000 to produce, a huge amount of money for a debut album at the time.

The album title, according to Noel Gallagher, comes from a poster he saw in a pub, although he cannot remember what the poster was advertising.

On This Day In Oasis History...














The following statement by Noel Gallagher, was posted on the Official Oasis Site on August 28th 2009.

"It's with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight. People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.

"Apologies to all the people who bought tickets for the shows in Paris, Konstanz and Milan."

Oasis were due to play the Rock en Seine festival in Paris but cancelled at the last minute. When the support band said Oasis would not be performing, many fans thought it was a joke, but then screens at either side of the stage showed this message: "As a result of an altercation within the band, the Oasis gig has been cancelled."

President at Warner Bros. UK, Phil Christie, added: “Liam’s one of the all-time greats - brilliant, distinctive, controversial and captivating.

“The album he’s currently recording is big, bold and heartfelt, and it feels important and culturally relevant.  It’s great to be working with Liam, Debbie and UROK on such a strong return for one of the UK’s most loved artists.”

This week in an interview with Q Magazine the Some Might Say singer already revealed he had 10 or 11 tracks, which he described as "chin-out music".

“We’ll record them this year and release it next year. It’ll shock people. "

The Kinks Ray Davies Urges Liam Gallagher To Patch Things Up With Noel













The Kinks star Ray Davies has urged Liam Gallagher to patch things up with his brother Noel.

The Come Dancing singer, who is a neighbour of the former Oasis frontman in North London, has famously feuded with his own sibling and ex-bandmate Dave for years, and he doesn't want the Gallaghers' rivalry to fester any longer.

Liam and Noel haven't been on speaking terms since the guitarist quit the group during a tour in 2009.

The Live Forever singer tells Q Magazine, "He (Davies) told me to patch it up with my brother. I said, 'I will if you do!'"

In the rare interview, Gallagher reveals he also lives close to George Michael, who once sent him flowers, and celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, adding, "I got told off for throwing stones at his windows p**sed-up (drunk), asking him to chuck down some bacon rolls."

And Liam tells the publication he has embarked on a new fitness regime, running seven miles every day.

"(I'm) leaving about 5am unless I've been out on the sauce (drinking), then I'm getting in at 5am," he smiles.

The singer concludes the interview by insisting Oasis will reform one day.

"I believe Oasis will sail again and it'll be glorious," he says. "If it's really about the fans, Noel, let's do it - because they want it. One year. Tour for a year. We'd smash it. My bags are still packed from my last tour, so I'm ready."

Noel has previously refused any and all attempts to reform Oasis.
