i'll agree. i've seen them live once. in all fairness, it was a week after seeing U2 live, so it's hard to compare, considering the emotional high i was coming down from.

i believe their new album is coming out sometime next spring.

Quite possibly the most boring live band I've seen, certainly considering all the hoopla around them.


Rubbish. At their peak, they were definitely the best band around at that time...the first two albums were pretty much perfect and they had about a dozen classic b-sides from that era too!

In an interview a couple of days ago, Noel stated they have 60 songs demoed for the the next album! I have also heard Rick Rubin might be involved in a producing capacity.

Oasis get thumbs down from festival-goers

Quote:
Oasis have been voted this summer’s worst festival band by music fans after a lacklustre performance at Glastonbury.

The Mancunian rockers left some festival-goers disappointed after a set where they barely spoke to the crowds.
Quote:
In the NME Festival Poll, 42% of those who voted for their worst band of the summer picked Oasis. In second place was The Darkness (26%), then The Strokes (17%) and The Libertines (15%).

If by best band you mean "biggest" stars, then yes I agree. However none of those claims I quoted in my previous post is true, not by far. There's plenty of bands/songwriters/singers that are better than Oasis/Noel Gallagher/Liam Gallagher, not just those that were mentioned, their contemporaries as well.

I had my Oasis phase, now I can't really listen to them much. The first album is great cause it's very straightforward and no bullshit. Nice riffs and lyrics and interesting melodies. Not as amazing as Noel likes to say it is though. I have all the albums and like them all to a certain extent but some songs are a bit too cheesy for me.

Rick Rubin producing an Oasis album would be interesting, hopefully it will be better than the last one (a good album but their worst).

I got to admit I always like that kind of arrogant rock star attitude Noel has. People hate them for that but I quite like it, I don't take it TOO seriously so I can enjoy it!

I was referring to your "overrated" remark and condescending laughter smiley. At that point in time they were a really great band, better than anyone else by some distance I would say.

The arrogant attitude is great...makes a nice contrast to the simpering, say-nothing fools fronting many a popular band right now..

Apparently announced yesterday:
http://sg.news.yahoo.com/040912/1/3n2l

Quote:
Rock fans rate Oasis worst act of Britain's festival season

Oasis, who set the soundtrack of the "cool Britannia" era in the 1990s, have been voted worst band of the festival season in Britain after their lacklustre performance at Glastonbury.

Forty-two percent of the 10,000 festival fans who took part in an online poll for the New Musical Express (NME) newspaper deemed the Manchester band to be worst they heard at the past summer's many rock and pop fetes.

...

Oasis, known for such hits as "Wonderwall" and "Don't Look Back in Anger," were so dismal at Glastonbury, Europe's biggest outdoor festival, that even organiser Michael Eavis conceded he was "a bit disappointed."
*doesn't care, actually *

C ya!

I like Oasis, although I think that Definitely Maybe is ridiculously overpraised. Derivative, hell yes, but with good catchy songs too.

i think the gallagher bros. are hysterical.
it's rock 'n roll.......
sure they are derivative but they also expand on their influences and have their own unique sound and style.
even heathen chemistry has some catchy tunes.
i am interested to hear what they do on their next CD.
i mean i would put my interest in them at a level of 1 next to a level of 10 interest in what u2 are doing.
but 99 percent of the bands out there my interest in what they are doing is ZERO
