the music, and the fans’ own experiences of that monumental
weekend”.

Liam Gallagher: “Knebworth for me was the Woodstock of the 90’s.
It was all about the music and the people. I can’t remember much
about it, but I’ll never forget it. It was Biblical.”

BIG BLASTS FROM THE PAST – 5 Stunning Singles Turning 25 In 2021

1. A Design For Life by MANIC STREET PREACHERS

One word: EPIC!

We don’t talk about love
We only wanna get drunk
And we are not allowed to spend
As we are told that this is the end

2. Don’t Look Back In Anger by OASIS

Shivers down your spine, and when thousands
sing along it’s a flabbergasting experience…

And so Sally can wait
She knows it’s too late
As we’re walking on by
Her soul slides away
But don’t look back in anger
I heard you say

3. You’re Gorgeous by BABYBIRD

Not really the love song many thought it was. Anyway
a titanic tune, I and many lovers, never get tired of…

Because you’re gorgeous
I’d do anything for you
Because you’re gorgeous
I know you’ll get me through

4. Firestarter by THE PRODIGY

Inflammable techno stormer. Rest in peace, Keith Flint

I’m the trouble starter, punkin’ instigator
I’m the fear addicted, a danger illustrated
I’m a firestarter, twisted firestarter
You’re a firestarter, twisted firestarter
I’m a firestarter, twisted firestarter

5. Devils Haircut by BECK

Not a loser at all…

Somethin’s wrong cause my mind is fading,
And everywhere I look there’s a dead end waiting,
Temperature’s dropping at the rotten oasis
Stealing kisses from the leprous faces

Got a devil’s haircut in my mind

1 Billion Spotify Streams For OASIS Hit WONDERWALL

16 October 2020

Spotify announced that WONDERWALL, the mega hit that paved the way for OASIS
passed the insane number of 1 billion streams. Seems pretty surreal, if you ask me.

Maybe Noel Gallagher can afford it now to buy a pack of mouth masks with the royalties. Oh, I forgot, he’s too cool to wear them. Great musician but a silly dickhead of a rock star talking more and more bollocks as he grows older while Liam talks more sense than ever, these days. Weird evolution, right?

Anyway here’s that classic, turning 25 on 30th October…
