‘DON’T BELIEVE THE TRUTH’ – Sixth OASIS Longplayer Released 15 Years Ago…

Old and new albums to make your day…

31 May 2020

Band: Oasis
Album: Don’t Believe The Truth 
Released: 30 May 2005 – 15 years ago

The Guardian wrote: “Little is the same as it was back then, for all parties concerned, but this is where Oasis start to mend some broken promises. It feels like a lifetime since a new album from the Gallaghers justified the hype and rhetoric spun on its behalf, but this is so good, it makes you want to pour not one but two glasses of Jack-Daniels over your head.”

Key words: One of their best longplayers, Mucky Velvet Underground Fingers, mad for it Liam, supersonic rockers and a couple of anthemic ballads, Sally’s sister Lyla, Kaïn and Abel, just get back together for one mega tour brudders and fight again afterward.

Key tracks: Mucky Fingers / Lyla / The Importance Of Being Idle / Keep The Dream Alive /
Let There Be Love

Best Band Of The Nineties Covering The Best Band Of All Time…

11 May 2020

It’s no secret that the Kain and Abel brothers of rock ‘n’ roll, aka Liam & Noel Gallagher were big fans of THE BEATLES. The best band ever in history (in my book) with Liam
loving John Lennon that much that at one time, according to Noel, he started to talk
with a Liverpool accent. Mad for it as usual.

So it’s no wonder that OASIS – the best band of the 90s (also in my book) – covered
several classic songs by The Fab Four. I selected three of the best. Sing along right
here, right now…

OASIS – Actually Noel Gallagher Solo – Shares Unreleased Ballad Demo ‘DON’T STOP’…

New sonic impulses

30 April 2020

Oasis comeback? Oasis reunion? Not definitely, not maybe. It’s actually an acoustic
ballad by chief Noel Gallagher recorded about 15 years ago in a soundcheck in Hong Kong, shared now as an OASIS track although his brother Liam is not on it. Coincidence?
I don’t think so, I’m sure Noel found also demo’s with Liam singing, but he won’t share those. Idle bastard!

Noel G. wrote on his Twitter account last night, 29 April: “I had infinite time to kill lately.
I stumbled across an old demo which I thought had been lost forever.”

The previously unreleased song is titled DON’T STOP and is family
of that moody beauty ‘Talk Tonight’ (1995). Have a listen right here…
