They have had some really great songs, but they've never seemed consistently good.

I loved Definitely Maybe. So much raw energy: I've always thought of it as the sound of a band discovering who they were. I was 18 and just discovering who I was when it came out, so it was one of those "Soundtrack For Your Life" things - a really corny phrase, but I can't think of any better way to put it.

I'll never forget Noel's comments on how to be successful in the music "industry": "You pick up your guitar, rip a few people's tunes off - preferably dead, so they can't sue you - swap them around a bit, get your brother in the band, punch his head in every now and again, and it sells." Highly amusing and also true in this case!

Their arrogance used to SERIOUSLY piss me off though. That was until I read a comment by Liam, banging on about the Bible:

"I'll tell you about the bible-there's no pictures in it. How can you buzz off a book, right, without no pictures in it? You've got to have one picture floating about. If there ain't no pictures in a book, you can fuck right off! I want to see Jesus getting off his tits and smashing the stalls up. I want to see Jesus walking on wine...or whatever, walking across water going, 'Waaahhyy, I'm a geezer.' But there's no pictures to prove it. So fuck right off. There's no pictures to prove that Jesus turned water into wine, I know he did and I know he's a geezer, but a book without pictures is a shit book."

I found that really funny... it was at that point that I thought, all this arrogance is a show: no-one can be that daft!

i'm glad they didn't break out too far, and never will.



You could put Oasis's best 20 or so songs against Radiohead and they'd absolutely piss all over them... and "didn't break out too far"??? They've sold the best part of 40million albums! which is roughly 4 times what Radiohead have sold.

I reserve my right to like both Oasis and Radiohead.

The thing is Oasis fans (the beer-swilling, Manchester City-supporting types who like to say 'fook', even if they're from New Zealand) think Radiohead make pansy, difficult music that's impossible to like 'because it ain't got no proper tunes, innit?'

And Radiohead fans (by this I mean the annoying half of atease) think Oasis are crap because they make extremely simple songs and that because they don't list Miles Davis and Autechre as influences, they're utter shit.
