Oasis - top 5 b sides

Discussion in 'SMB' started by forzamilansafc, Jan 11, 2019.

  1. I'm not a big fan of Oasis but those 5 songs would be better than what most indie bands are putting out today. They are better than most of the song Oasis did from Standing on the Shoulder of Giants onwards.

    It's dad rock now. I like listen to songs from Definitely Maybe, What's The Story and Be Here Now more out of nostalgia and 'music from my era'.

    The US copy of wonderwall had round are way, talk tonight, rockin chair & i am the walrus live... shame that the UK version had swamp song on which is a 4min fill.

    Not fussed on Round Are Way, although I liked it when they started tagging the verses of Up In The Sky onto it. At their peak Swamp Song was always the opener live, with Liam mooching on part way through :cool:

    Edit: I have got the Japanese import single of Dont Go Away, which has got Sad Song on it. Tremendous.

    just googled the back story to this as i wasn't sure if it was recorded at a Glasgow King Tuts show - slightly disappointed with this from wiki (not very rock & roll):

    Contrary to the track listing and clarified on subsequent releases (including The Masterplan), "I Am the Walrus" was actually not recorded at the Glasgow Cathouse, but at the Gleneagles Hotel during a conference for Sony music executives, who gathered to hear Creation Records' newly signed artists. The song was recorded during soundcheck, in an empty hall, with no audience, at 10 in the morning. Noel Gallagher stated that the band loved this particular live recording, but strongly disliked the event, which Noel described as "one of them shit things where all the twats in suits get together and they roll on the new signings". The band had another recording of the song from the show at the Cathouse, "which sounded quite similar but it was fucking rubbish", according to Noel. They then decided to use the recording from the Gleneagles soundcheck, but credited it as stemming from the Cathouse, adding crowd noise taken from a Faces bootleg album to make it sound like an authentic tour recording. "Because it would look shit if you put ‘Live at Sony Seminar in Gleneagles’!", Noel stated. "[W]e thought, ‘Fuck it, no-one'll fucking know’. But I always meant to set the record straight one day. Sorry to anyone who bought it on the premise of being at that gig.

    Aye, I knew that.

    Well that's disappointed me too. I've always been dubious about "Gleneagles live" as I've always thought that there is no way surely that they've played there live in such a high class location in front of fans, knowing some of the arses that are attracted to them. It now explains that piece of my puzzle.
