Another On This Day In Oasis History...


"I'm Outta Time" is a song by English rock band Oasis, featured on their seventh studio album, Dig Out Your Soul. The second single from the album, succeeding "The Shock of the Lightning", "I'm Outta Time" was written by lead vocalist Liam Gallagher and released on 1 December 2008.

Composition

The song bears similarity, in style, to John Lennon's work in the early 1970s. The piano which features on the track partly emulates that of Lennon's "Jealous Guy", with the three octave jumps in C major. The song also has a backing piano part similar in content to that of The Beatles' "A Day in the Life", which also contains a three octave jump in C major. Liam jokingly claims that it took him nine years to write the song. However, in a different interview Liam Gallagher claimed that he wrote the song "While sitting on the end of my bed".

The song features a short speech sample from John Lennon taken from one of his last interviews in 1980. The speech sample says: "As Churchill said, it's every Englishman's inalienable right to live where the hell he likes. What's it going to do, vanish? Is it not going to be there when I get back?".




















Reception

The song has been noted as one of the highlights of the album by fans, as well as the band themselves, with guitarist Noel Gallagher labelling it "deceptively brilliant". It has also been praised by music critics, with NME calling it a return to form, and comparing it to the music of Oasis-admired rock band The Beatles.

It charted at number 12 in the UK Singles Chart – the first Oasis single to miss the top ten since 1994, ending the band's streak of 22 consecutive top tens. It spent only two weeks in the UK top 75, the least ever by any Oasis single. Although only peaking at number 48 in France, the song spent a total of 28 weeks in the French Singles Chart, the most ever by any Oasis single.

Music video

The music video for "I'm Outta Time" was released in November 2008. Filmed in black and white, it shows Liam Gallagher, the only band member to appear in the clip, on a "surreal journey through a moon-lit English landscape". Directed by W.I.Z., it was filmed around Bourton-on-the-Water. At the end of the video, Liam is filmed in a close-up profile shot lying down. This bears resemblance to the back cover artwork for John Lennon's album Imagine. It also resembles the cover of Lennon's 1973 album Mind Games.


Covers

The song was covered by singer Lily Allen on BBC's Live Lounge on 2 December 2009.

Noel Gallagher’s “Ridiculous” Suggestion Influenced Jet Member's New Band


There doesn’t seem to be a filter when it comes to the creative and scandalous outbursts of Noel Gallagher, which is why he so often produces entertaining and lasting content; the likes of which has influenced the new band from Jet drummer Chris Cester.

With the band’s classic Get Born and Shine On records reissued ahead of a massive stint supporting Bruce Springsteen next year, Jet are well and truly back in action, but that’s not to say they haven’t been busy since disbanding in 2011.

Speaking with The Music’s Bryget Chrisfield, Cester gave insight into how Damndogs – formed in LA with fellow Jet members Louis Macklin and Mark Wilson and cousin Mitch McIvor in the wake of Jet’s hiatus – morphed into a new project that was named by Gallagher.

“When Mark left the band, Louis and I decided to keep going but we renamed – we changed – it because the music had changed a lot as well,” Cester said.

“I [texted] Noel Gallagher at one point and asked him if he could give us a new band name. And he said Mystic Knights Of Amnesia, which we both thought was ridiculous.

“But then we were like, ‘Actually, it’s so ridiculous it could be awesome!’ And it suits the music, too, which is just really off the wall. Our first song, our first release, is gonna probably be around nine minutes long, but not a boring nine minutes.”

After racking up a lot of airplay with Get Born and Shine On, Cester’s acutely aware that “nobody’s gonna be playing a nine-minute song” on the radio. “I gave up on the radio a long time ago,” he admits. “I think you’ve gotta sort of just play your own game, you know?”

You can listen to instrumental versions of Mystic Knights Of Amnesia’s new fuzz, jam masterpieces via their website.

Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins Praises Liam Gallagher


Foo Fighters‘ Taylor Hawkins has spoken out in praise of Liam Gallagher – hailing him as a ‘fucking good rock singer’ and remembering ‘great nights out’ together.

The drummer, who just released his new mini solo album ‘KOTA‘, was talking to NME about the inspiration to work on music away from the Foos, when he opened up about his admiration for the former Beady Eye and Oasis man – and even compared him to Freddie Mercury.

“I’ll tell you something about Liam Gallagher,” Hawkins told NME. “That guy is such a fucking good rock good singer. When people talk about Freddie Mercury, they’re like ‘Oh my god, he’s so outrageous’ – a lot of people just skip past the actual thing of what it is that made them great. I watched that Oasis documentary [Supersonic] the other day, and there’s this part were he just sings ‘Champagne Supernova’ in one take in its entirety, and you just go ‘oh fuck’, you know, the reason we all liked him in the first place is because he’s a fucking good singer. He can fucking sing a rock ‘n’ roll song dude.”

Hawkins continued: “I hope him and his brother can get his shit together. I mean come on boys, everyone wants to see Oasis again, give us a break – come on!”

When asked about how long he’d known the Gallaghers and the Foos history of playing live with Oasis, Hawkins replied: “Oh yeah I’ve known those cats off and on. I was playing shows when I was drummer for Alanis Morissette for all these Christmas festivals, so the Foo Fighters were doing it before I was in the band, Jane’s Addiction, and Oasis. It was right when that album ‘What’s The Story? (Morning Glory)’ came out. We’d be in England and  every single car was either playing Blur or Oasis.”

He went on: It was such a fun time, 1995-96, it was amazing. I remember their bus would pull up, outside of Ohio or New Jersey or something like that, and watching those two guys smacking each other, not even out of the bus. We’re going ‘ oh my god, there they are the real deal’. They look amazing and they’re beating the crap out of each other and I can’t even understand a word they are saying. I had a couple of great nights with them Liam back in the day, back in the 90s.

“Every time I see him I get a big hug. I love him. I think he’s one of the great frontmen over the last 20 years, no question. As far as a guy who can hold a microphone and sing, and really not do much of anything. He can move, one little sway, his hair’s always impeccable and he’s always got the best sweatshirt you’ve ever seen in your life.”

Liam Gallagher Announces First Solo Gig


The Oasis frontman claimed that he was working on a debut solo album during the screenings of Mat Whitecross documentary Supersonic - and now he's about to prove it live.

Liam Gallagher is set to perform his first solo show - in aid of a music charity for young people.

The former Oasis frontman revealed that he was working on a debut solo album during the Manchester screening of Mat Whitecross documentary Supersonic earlier this year, and has reportedly signed a deal with label Warner Bros to release his first album next year.

He'll perform as part of the Give A Gig Week, which raises funds by putting on 100 shows in a week to support 75,000 young people working in 350 youth music projects around England.

The show will take place at London's Bush Hall on March 28, 2017, and the bill includes more star appearances from Jess Glynne, Tom Odell, and rapper Plan B.

Give a Gig Week 2017 runs across venues in the capital from March 24-31, with shows taking place at Bush Hall, Shepherd’s Bush Empire, The Bedford, The Roundhouse, and the Hard Rock Café.

Speaking to Music Week today, Youth Music's chief exec Matt Griffiths said: “ I’m really encouraged to see the music industry getting behind Give a Gig Week to help us transform the lives of more disadvantaged young people through music.

"The industry has a long history of supporting charities and we’re heartened to see our work at Youth Music being acknowledged."

Oasis fans had hoped the big Gallagher news next year would be their long awaited reunion and a Glastonbury headline spot. In fact, suspicion was so high that last month one bookmaker took its odds on an Oasis reunion off - because of an increase in big money bets.

Gamblers increasingly optimistic that the Gallagher brothers will bury the hatchet next year led Betway to remove odds of 5/4 on the band getting back together in 2017 because of a "significant number of new accounts placing maximum bets".

Reports also emerged that the Manchester band had started booking support bands for a potential reunion tour after Australia's Noise11 claimed to have insider information from a "UK rock band from the 90s with a very close connection to Liam Gallagher".

So far, it looks like that isn't not part of Liam's masterplan...

Another On This Day In Oasis History...


Below is a video from November 28th 2006, when Noel Gallagher played an acoustic show at the Le Cabaret Sauvage in Paris as part of the promotion for Stop The Clocks.

Performing in front of his smallest audience for years, Gallagher backed by Gem Archer on guitar and percussionist Terry Kirkbride, played a mixture of acoustic B-sides and album tracks.

On This Day In Oasis History...


Let There Be Love" is a song on the British rock band Oasis' sixth album, Don't Believe the Truth. Written by Noel Gallagher, it is the second Oasis song to feature Liam and Noel on lead vocals, the first being the B-Side "Acquiesce". It was released on November 28th 2005 as the third single from the album in the UK, and the second single in the US. It reached number two in the UK charts, capping a very successful year for the band. Many critics cited this song as proof that Oasis had returned to form we had seen in the mid-90's.

A demo for the track was recorded during demo sessions for Standing on the Shoulder of Giants. A bootleg of these demo sessions was leaked onto the Internet in early 2000. This track was given the unofficial title "It's A Crime" on many bootlegs as the track was unknown and unreferenced anywhere before then. The album version of the song is structurally almost exactly as the same as the demo with a slight change in melody in the part that Noel sings. The lyrics to the chorus remains intact, but the verses and bridge have totally rewritten lyrics.




















The single version of the song omits the second verse and chorus.



A second, Noel-sung demo was released on the "Let There Be Love" DVD single. It has the same lyrics as the album version, and in fact the album version takes some elements from the demo such as the piano. It was probably recorded sometime in 2003 or 2004, prior to the main Don't Believe the Truth recording sessions.

The video is a montage of some of Oasis' live shows during the summer of 2005 including clips of the gigs at Hampden Park and the City of Manchester Stadium. The clips don't actually show the band playing 'Let There Be Love'.

The song has only been played live once, on an Italian radio show in late 2005.
