mmm... but imagine a band that made one good album, then continued to make that same album every other year or so, only each subsequent time there was a little less novelty, and it sounded a little more dated, with lyrics that made even less sense...

awful times. oasis and the spice girls... what a tragic era.

Can't disagree with this. Glad to hear this lot are finally going to stop pumping out bland, samey tripe every year, whilst posing as 'real lads'.

Now if only Liam Gallagher could get hit by an anvil...

I'm not sure how old some of you are, but if you were a teenager when Oasis came out with Definitely Maybe, it was like Britains Answer to Nevermind!

Sure they were a ouple of w**kers, and the fact that an argument between the two of the brothers mde it into the top 40 singles showed how out of control their popularity got. But they made some great songs, and were an important part of the British Music Scene in the early 90's.

They'll be back together before you know it making another "best of" album

Definitely Maybe wasa good album, not great but definitely good. Mainstream music was on its knees at that point and it was refreshing for there to be some guitar based pop/rock music which you didn't have to go hunting for.

The media then saw a chance for easy headlines with the whole Blur vs Oasis thing and bored us to tears with stories about it. Liam was dumb enough to buy into it and Noel was smart enough to realise it was ideal PR which would ensure his band (and lets face it it had become his band) stayed in the public eye until, the release of What's the Story Morning Glory. And as an aside Blur were, and are, crap, Oasis were by far the better band back then.

Given how huge Definitely maybe was from a commercial perspective the follow up album was always going to be tough and I actually think they did OK. I can stilll listen to their first two albums from time to time and acknowlegde that Noel Gallagher was, and probably still could be, a good song writer.

After that it all went downhill - they haven't released an album since that I would even bother downloading for free let alone buy. I think Noel realised they had to change in the way that bande with genuine longevity have to however he was stuck with having to carry Liam on his shoulders all the time.

I am glad Noel has left them as I still think he could do something with his career hat ight be worth listening to.

They will always be accused of being a Beatles rip off however I never really had a problem with that.

id back all that up. i was 19 (i think) when definitely maybe was released and it meant the world to me. it was about growing up, drink, drugs , confusion and disillusionment and it was the soundtrack to my life. i was lucky enough to see them on that tour too. that cd did not leave my player for six months, its like it was written for me.

of course 'that difficult second album' theory proved to be a joke as gallagher nailed it with WTSMG but by then they had got so stupidly big i felt they were not my band any more and i moved on, but i will never forget just what they meant to me at that time. such great, great songs - supersonic, slide away, live forever, whatever, the masterplan, some might say, acquiesce.

i guess they shouldve called it a day at knebworth because of course they soon turned into a bit of a parody and they havent released anything essential for a long time now and just turned into a greatest hits touring package so maybe the time was right.

i wont forget the time of 94/95 though and im sure neither will a lot of people from that generation as those were the songs we will grow old with. as scott says, i think you had to be at the right age at that right time to understand.

lets hope alike loz says noel finally decides to utilise his undoubted talent into a solo album, but for now, heres my fave oasis tune, thanks for the memories , the songs and the sore heads lads.

blur crap?

oasis the better band?

loz, hand in your ears to whomever took your hair. you won't be needing them anymore.

:)

Both pretty over-rated IMO. At least Blur had the good grace to split a bit earlier.

Do think Noel could have a decent solo career though. And if that fails he'd make a good stand up comic as he's a genuinely funny bloke.

That's nearly as bad as "It's serious as cancer, rhythm is a dancer"!!

i'm as serious as cancer when i say rhythm is a dancer -

Blur were to pretentious what Jordan is to fake knockers

oh come on- you are saying that despite being a fan of pink floyd (as am I, and yes, they are of course massively superior)- surely that they were willing to try different things is a good sign. it's part of what helps them stand head and shoulders above most of the "britpop" bands who were more than happy to do the same thing over and over.
