Another On This Day In Oasis History...


The videos below are from September 23rd 2008, when Zane Lowe caught up with the band to discuss a number of various subjects.




On This Day In Oasis History...


"Little By Little" is a song by British rock band Oasis, first released as the sixth track on their fifth studio album Heathen Chemistry. On September 23rd 2002, it was released with "She Is Love" as the first (and, so far, only) double A-sided single by the band, peaking at #2 in the UK Singles Chart Noel Gallagher provides lead vocals on both tracks, which he also wrote.

"Little By Little" was perhaps the most controversial song on the album, receiving mixed reviews from those who felt it was a classic example of an upbeat Oasis anthem and those who felt it was a twee, patronising, sycophantic melody. Regardless of this, the song managed to peak at number two in the UK charts based largely on the publicity garnered by the song.




















The promo video to the song featured a guest role by Robert Carlyle. The cover art for the single is an homage to Robert Indiana's LOVE artwork.



She Is Love

"She Is Love" is a song by British rock band Oasis, first released as the ninth track on their fifth studio album Heathen Chemistry. In September 2002, it was released with "Little by Little" as the first double A-sided single by the band, peaking at #2 in the UK Singles Chart. The song was written about Noel Gallagher's girlfriend Sara McDonald and is a light, acoustic song about being in love.

Gallagher claims it was written in the Buckingham Gate Hotel in London, and that it took 30 minutes to complete. The band commissioned British fashion art director Rachel Thomas to make a promo video for the song. However, the resulting film, a mix of animation and live action, has never been released on any format.

On This Day In Oasis History...


"Stand By Me" is a song by British rock group Oasis and was released as a single on September 22 1997, written by lead guitarist, Noel Gallagher.

It was the second single to be released from the band's third album, Be Here Now, and peaked at number 2 in the UK charts.

It was kept from the top-spot by the record breaking Elton John single "Candle in the Wind 1997," re-recorded and released in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, who had died three weeks before the release of "Stand by Me". Despite this, "Stand By Me" still went Gold in the UK. "Stand by Me" was acknowledged as one of the stand-out tracks from Be Here Now.





















Interview

In a 1997 interview promoting Be Here Now, Noel Gallagher had the following to say: "It starts, 'Made a meal and threw it up on Sunday'. When I first moved to London my mam kept on ringing up and asking was I eating properly. Yes, Mam. So I tried to cook a Sunday roast and puked up for two days with food poisoning. It was back to Pot Noodles after that. It's a bit like "Live Forever", I suppose, with a touch of "All the Young Dudes" in the background -- though I made sure I changed the chords."

Live Performances

Due to Noel Gallagher's general dislike of Be Here Now, "Stand by Me" is rarely played live by the band at their concerts, as it is Noel who usually decides the song listings for Oasis' tours. A live version of the song from this tour can be found on the double-CD version of Familiar to Millions.

A well-known acoustic version of "Stand by Me" was shown on television the night before the release of Be Here Now as part of a BBC1 documentary, featuring Noel, Liam Gallagher and drummer Alan White sitting by the side of a swimming pool, with Liam on vocals, Noel on acoustic guitar and White holding a tambourine.

Writing

Noel Gallagher claims to have written the song whilst suffering from food poisoning when he first moved to London. His mother Peggy would phone him to check on him and repeatedly told him to ensure he was eating properly. This spurred Gallagher to cook himself a proper English Sunday dinner, which resulted in a bout of food poisoning. Gallagher claims that the song's first line—"Made a meal and threw it up on Sunday/I've got a lot of things to learn"—came to him as he lay on the floor and it was then that he began to pen the lyrics to the song.

The title for the song probably comes from the song "Stand By Me", which was covered by the Gallaghers' idol John Lennon. In a characteristic example of Noel Gallagher lifting elements from songs of which he is fond, the rousing sequence of chord changes between the repeated chorus lyrics 'Stand by me/Nobody knows the way it's gonna be' bears a remarkable similarity to a similar chord sequence in Mott the Hoople's "All the Young Dudes", written by David Bowie.



Video

The video for the song was a reworking of a famous series of adverts for The Guardian newspaper. Entitled The Whole Picture, the adverts showed people appearing to be engaging in criminal and/or anti-social acts—only to revealed that they are actually helping someone else. For example, a scruffily-dressed skinhead rushes at a businessman; it appears he is making an effort to mug him; only the "whole picture" reveals that he is fact dashing to push him away from a load of falling bricks. Similarly in the video for "Stand By Me", a shop appears to be being burgled - its window smashed and people taking away electrical goods—only for it to be revealed that in fact the victim of a motorcycle crash has gone through the window and is buried under the televisions.

"My Sister Lover" - Some fans believe the title to be a reference to the band Sister Lovers, a group that invited Oasis to a May 1993 gig at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow, Scotland, where they were spotted by Creation Records chief Alan McGee, who reportedly offered Oasis a recording contract on the spot after the gig.

"Going Nowhere" - apparently Noel's attempt at a Burt Bacharach style song - can be found on The Masterplan, a collection of Oasis B-sides. It is one of only two B-sides from the Be Here Now era to be included on the album. Although it was not released until 1997, the song was written in 1990, before Noel even joined Oasis, let alone before they were signed.

Liam Gallagher To Attend London And Manchester Premieres Of Oasis Documentary 'Supersonic'


The Supersonic film premiere takes place in London and Manchester at the same time.

Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher is so keen to make the Manchester premiere of the band's documentary - he's getting a HELICOPTER to it.

If you have a burning question for Liam Gallagher, then this is your big chance as the Oasis frontman will fly from London to Manchester to take part in a Q&A session with fans at his hometown premiere screening of the band's documentary Supersonic.

Liam will attend the glitzy red carpet premiere of the film in the capital, before jumping into a private chopper to fly over to the Odeon Printworks in the city centre, in time for the end credits.

Supersonic, directed by Academy Award-winning Mat Whitecross, features extensive unseen archive footage of the Mancunian rockers.

Told in their own words, the documentary charts Oasis' history from the council estates of Manchester to some of the biggest concerts of all time in just three years.

Fans can get a first look of the film at the premiere on Sunday, October 2, at 7.30pm.

Liam and Mat will then take questions from the audience, which will also be simultaneously streamed live to other Odeon cinemas across the country, from 9.30pm. The event is scheduled to finish at 10pm.

Fiery frontman Liam made it his personal ambition to get a premiere for the film back on his home turf - after a Twitter rant at film bosses when he heard they were only planning to launch it in London earlier this year.

Liam said on his Twitter account: "So check this out apparently some clown trying to tell me this film about my band yeah MY band is not premiering in Manchester..."

Clearly Burnage's finest Liam was so keen to ensure Manchester gets the red carpet treatment too that he agreed to get the helicopter ride up here.

We're sure it will bring to mind for many an Oasis fan the video for the band's 1997 hit D'Ya Know What I Mean? Where the band leap out of a chopper in their trademark parkas.

Tickets go on sale on Monday, September 26, which you will be able to buy here
