English Britpop group
Originally formed by Liam Gallagher (vocals), Paul Arthurs (guitar), Tony McCaroll (drums) and Paul McGuigan (bass), Oasis hit the scene when singer/songwriter Noel Gallagher took over the band in 1993 and released their debut album in 1994. In 1995, Alan White replaced drummer McCarroll, just before the release “Some Might Say”, the single that hit number one and revitalized the band’s popularity. Oasis’ second album was released in 1995, and became the UK’s fastest selling album since Bad was released by Michael Jackson. The band continued to release record-breaking albums until 2008, after which Liam left and the band was renamed Beady Eye in 2009.
Thoughts on Songs with Oasis
Noel always considered Liam a lazy bum. I mean Heathen Chemistry's release was postponed several months although it was done, simply because it was sent to Liam and he didn't manage to record his vocals for a long time. This song is about laziness, so maybe this is one is experiential!
"Don't believe the truth" was recorded in L.A. however it's known that Oasis was based in Manchester ... I'm itching to know which that city is. Manchester is not a terribly big place. Anyway Oasis' lyrics are usually allegorical so it could easily be any city....
