Yes they are and I'm contending that "Shock Of The Lightning" and "I'm Outta Time" are two of their greatest singles.

The remix of "I'm Outta Time" is a banger https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLeHiVNm-aE

Falling Down is a decent late-period track as well, and the remixes are good, particularly the Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble one

They were better than average at the time but I should really have been listening to Radiohead.

Although I like their first album and its B-sides, parts of the second and the odd song thereafter, I totally agree with Price and Kulkarni on the latest Chart Music about their musical conservativeness, the fact that the Galaghers are utter cunts and the deleterious effect they had on music in the 90s and beyond

Reminds me of the time when I managed to get an autographed copy of (What's The Story) Morning Glory? as a competition prize at the local newspaper I worked at through mutual connections with Alan McGee. I filed the copy expecting it to be a big article, you know maybe with a front page blurb. I mean they were the biggest band in Britain at the time. Then I went on holiday...

...and returned to find that some cretin had decided it was only worthy of being a two-paragraph 'blob' at the bottom of a page, not even with its own headline, instead attached to an article about some other much less popular group (I can't even remember who). I wasn't too happy about this to say the least. But this was just another example of working under wankers who thought they were cool because they liked Fleetwood Mac and Dylan and down with the kids because they had teenage children. Although if they'd bothered asking them they might have realised how enormous Oasis were at the time.

Despite the attempt to hide it, the contest had quite a few entries. I never saw the actual album itself as I simply supplied the winner's name to their publicity company and never received a complaint so I presume they received it. Bet that's worth a few bob nowadays.

I don't think a fully signed copy has ever come up for sale but Liams's squiggle is one of the easiest to forge

I never actually saw the prize. For all I know 'signed by Oasis' could have consisted of Tony McCarroll's signature.

"You can have it all but how much do you want it?"

It may not have fit in their rhyming scheme, but they should have added a meek little 'for' at the end of that sentence, and for that crime and no other I turn my back on them.

Same here.  I ended up with Oasis’ first two albums, Blur’s Parklife and its follow-up, and Menswear’s Nuisance.

I could have been listening to Radiohead.

Parklife is a fantastic album. Oasis might have been better with the anthemic singalong hits but Blur were magical for a short while.

Having said that, it was funny when a certain local band made it big during Britpop with the same people claiming they'd known about and supported them for years beforehand. FUCK. RIGHT. OFF. YOU. WANKERS.

Slide Away is just a ridiculously brilliant tune. The Gallaghers are a pair of twats but those first two albums are absolute gold, and Be Here Now is unfairly criticised too.

Be Here Now is mostly shite, and the production is cack, some of the B-sides are good though like Angel Child but that's always been the case. They really should have kept a load of those b-sides on the backburner for album tracks and they would have kept churning out decent albums for a good while longer instead of splurging them all in the first couple of years.

Don't Go Away the big radio single off Be Here Now was a straight ripoff of a Real People song, most of their early stuff and Liam's singing style was taken from the Realies because they would let Oasis use their studio time to practice and had to show Liam how to sing using headphones on and keep time etc.

Cool band, but what really stood out was Liam's finishing move, something I've never seen a fan manage to parry.

He walks up to the microphone places his hands behind his arched back in a stooped stance and opens his mouth like it's been glued together with cement for a decade and the cracks are finally showing, before a piercing 'SHHHIIIINNEEEEEEE' emerges and washes over you and anyone in the vicinity, with no sign of stopping, like a bullet from a gun.
