Manchester Legends OASIS Released Stupendous Debut Masterpiece ‘DEFINITELY MAYBE’ 25 Years Ago…

29 Augustus 2019

On 29 August 1994, 25 years ago, Manchester’s legends OASIS released one of the best albums ever according to my ears. DEFINITELY MAYBE was a stunning life-celebrating rock album that came at a perfect moment as The Stone Roses blew their minds on drugs for five years after their astonishing 1989 debut LP and only delivered a half great second longplayer 3 months after the Gallagher Brothers took the vacant place and scored a
No 1 hit LP in the UK with their ace debut. Except for the two stinkers Digsy’s Dinner and ‘Married With Children’ all songs were euphoric jackhammers with most of them sounding like ecstatic anthems millions would sing along word by word afterward. Historic score!

Thanks to NME hyping the band in their early days I went to London in August 1994
to see Oasis play in a small venue. An unforgettable experience it was. Mind-boggling electricity! It was the first of about 30 Oasis concerts I witnessed. Their overwhelming, rhapsodic live force was unmatchable for years to come. Best time of my life! Hallelujah!

Here come three of the several masterstrokes on ‘Definitely Maybe’…
