Noel Gallagher quits Oasis

Recommended Posts

Was a massive Oasis fan back in the day but i never listen to any of their music 20 years on. Music just hasn't aged well, the polar opposite of Radiohead who's music still sound current today.

 

They caught the mood of the day, with some catchy tunes.

The internet is really good for finding music that you know you want, or trying out new stuff without having to buy it, but it's fractured the mainstream music culture.  Scenes used to bubble away for awhile before getting picked up by the mainstream and become movements, or having a real cultural impact.

 

The infrastructure just isn't there for that to happen in the same way.  

Yes, the difference is that the type of music Lee is referring to won't be played on the radio now. A counter culture isn't allowed.

First album is completely derivative but really well done. Second album isn't as good and doesn't even try to disguise the nicked riffs as much.

 

Be Here Now is laughably awful, but still not as embarrassing as Charles Shaar Murray's review in Mojo: "This is Oasis's world domination album. Dem a come fe mess up de area seeeeeeerious." He wasn't alone in that though - it got five star reviews across the board at the time. Herd journalism at its finest.

It seems hard to imagine something like Ghost Town by the Specials - something so distorted, disaffected and dystopian that caught the mood of a riot-torn country - being so accepted by the mainstream that it reaches number one. 

 

Those days feel like very, very long ago.

I’m not sure I buy that. It’s just more that there is very little radio or music industry to speak of.

Radio One and Top of the Pops were absolutely massive cultural institutions, the major record labels were raking in cash so would indulge in a bit of art now and again.

 

None of that is there anymore. Mainstream music just doesn’t really exist.

If you want to know why there's no decent music played on the radio then just look at who owns or runs the main radio stations. Most private stations are owned by millionaires with links to the establishment who want the populace numbed as fuck. They also have mates in the big music corps paying them backhanders to play their generic mass produced muck and to rake in advertising cash.

 

You wouldn't hear a single protest song on the main stations nowadays. Their news section consists of brief national news followed by chatter about poxy celebrities who have bought a new face. Tragic.

Stig's got his work cut out this week, on top of Noel's conversion to full blown tory bastard, apparently Liam has been clocked on CCTV booting fuck out of his bird.

Absolute bollocks. There were some fucking brilliant bands in the 90's yet Oasis managed to top them all. I think people like to be seen not to like Oasis. Forget what you think of them as people and listen to the music. They released a b-side album that managed to be one of the best albums of the decade for fuck sake. 

The best album released in the 90's by a country mile was Rid of Me by PJ Harvey.

 

Well it was IMO anyway and that is the thing with music isn't it - totally subjective. Personally i had no time for Oasis, just never saw the big deal in them but plenty did of course

The first time I ever heard of Akala was a few years back, when there was a bit of a kerfuffle about the BBC editing a song he'd recorded in session for them. They replaced two words with silence, like on the radio-friendly versions of sweary Eminem tracks. 

 

The two words were "free Palestine".

Probably the biggest protest song of recent years was Paper Planes by MIA, which (I suspect) got loads of airplay because they didn't realise it was a protest song.

That footage was released months ago. His bird came out and said it was bullshit and they were just fucking around drunk.

His solo album is actually very good. Some belters on there.

You'll still be saying this when he's 70 and  bringing out his 3rd Christmas covers album.

They are just like Slade then. Although Slade made some crackin' tunes.

That lads voice especially in the first few albums was fucking immense. Not even a Blur fan would deny that.
