OASIS IN THEIR OWN WORDS (2016)
In August 1994, a few months after Kurt Cobain’s death, Oasis’ debut album Definitely Maybe soared to #1 in the charts, confirming an end to the last days of Grunge dominance.
Oasis blazed onto the music scene, becoming the anti-heroes of Britpop. They broke the charts, sent the tabloids into a spin, gave British music international swagger again and offered a fresh new soundtrack to disenchanted youth. They achieved 8 UK #1 albums and 8 UK #1 singles and – remarkably – managed to stay together for 15 years, before the notorious Gallagher rift fractured for good.
Iconic, notorious, heroes, prats, legendary, diabolical: a lot can, and has been said about the Gallagher brothers and Oasis - but the harshest commentary often came from within.
‘Oasis in Their Own Words’ charts the band’s meteoric rise from a bunch of lads from Manchester, to the biggest British band of their generation, as they saw it themselves. And all the Britpop hedonism and brotherly punch-ups that came along the way. (00:27:20)
