On This Day In Oasis History...


Stop the Clocks is an album by British rock band Oasis made up of Oasis' favourite songs and moments of their career so far and was released on November 20 2006. “Unlike most albums of this nature, Oasis have sat down and undertaken the almost impossible job of picking what they consider to be their finest moments ever. So 'Stop The Clocks' is imbued with the sort of willfulness that has helped make Oasis the favourite band of millions of people worldwide and its running order will no doubt provoke equal parts adulation and bar discussions from the millions of Oasis fans worldwide. Could it ever be any other way?” . It released in November 2006. The "retrospective collection" is an 18-track double album with the featured songs chosen by Noel Gallagher. It went 3x platinum in the UK with sales as good as any album there since Be Here Now.

The album has come about due to the end of Oasis' recording contract with Sony BMG Music Entertainment. Noel Gallagher has gone on record before on numerous occasions saying that Oasis wouldn't release a greatest hits album unless the band were about to split up. However, in an interview with news.com.au in December 2005, he hinted that Sony were planning to release one anyway, and that despite his misgivings, he would have to get involved with it otherwise it'd be "shit". This was clarified in September 2006, when he told the NME that when he made it clear to Sony that the band were not going to re-sign to them, the record label decided to release a greatest hits album. Gallagher then explained that he insisted that it had to be a 'best-of' because he felt a compilation of the best singles, album tracks and b-sides would produce a stronger album than a compilation of singles.

To address some fans' concerns that the release of a greatest hits album was a sign that the band were about to finish, based on some of Noel Gallagher's previous comments, the press release for the album confirmed that they are merely taking "a well earned sabbatical prior to starting work on new material, destined for similar levels of success in the future. As such, this is not a full stop, but merely a time out; a dream set list, and a chance for the world to review the immense contribution that Oasis have made and continue to make to rock 'n' roll."

To celebrate the release of the album, the band will be unveiling their first full-length film - Lord Don't Slow Me Down, shot during the Don't Believe the Truth world tour, from May 2005 to March 2006, the film was shown in November 2006 around the world in selected picture houses, theatres and cinemas to winners of fans competitions and the press. It was also broadcasted on Channel 4 in the UK.

The album debuted at #2 in the UK charts selling over 50,000 copies in its first day of release and 216,000 in its first week of release, surprisingly not selling enough to knock off the top spot to The Love Album, by the boy-band Westlife. It also debuted at #89 on the U.S. Billboard 200, starting with 18,000 units sold. It did however enter the Japanese Oricon album charts at #1, selling 87,462 copies in its first week.

In Japan, a box set was also released of all their singles to coincide with the album.

The Songs

Stop the Clocks focuses heavily on the band's most popular albums, Definitely Maybe and (What's the Story) Morning Glory?, with each contributing five tracks, plus four B-sides (also included on the band's other compilation album The Masterplan) from this era. Only two tracks appear from Don't Believe the Truth, and one track each from Standing on the Shoulder of Giants and Heathen Chemistry, whilst Be Here Now is overlooked completely.

When the release of Stop the Clocks was first announced in July 2006, speculation was rife that the unreleased song of the same name would be included on the record as a bonus track. However, Noel Gallagher told fans at a Q&A session that the song was considered for inclusion, but they weren't happy with any of the many versions they have recorded.

Gallagher also confirmed that the title was chosen to sum up what was described in the initial press release as being "merely a time out; a chance for the world to review the immense contribution that Oasis have made and continue to make to rock 'n' roll." Noel Gallagher revealed in an interview in April 2005 that 'Stop the Clocks' was the original title for the band's early recorded material in early 2004, which turned eventually into Don't Believe the Truth.

Gallagher revealed to Billboard that he was approached about including some new songs on the album as well, but that he opted not to "because it takes the focus away from what you're actually trying to say with a retrospective."

Gallagher told the NME in September 2006 that he picked the tracks on the album, and there were about eight songs that "should be on there, but aren't". He explained that his original vision was for a 12-track album on one CD, but, after whittling down from an initial 30+ tracks, the track-listing was finalised. He admitted that he's had arguments with people about the tracklisting but that "someone has to pick the tracklisting, and I've picked it and that's the end of it. But that must mean we're pretty good, if people are arguing about what's not on it, it's brilliant!"

During an interview on Radio 1 in October 2006, and later during a question and answer session with The Sun, Liam Gallagher, who got a songwriting credit with his "Songbird", claimed that he was happy with the tracks Noel had selected for the album, although he said that he would have liked "Rockin' Chair" and "D'You Know What I Mean?" to be included. Noel, however, admitted that "D'You Know What I Mean?" was to be included on the album up until the moment it was being mastered, explaining that the length of the song "upset the flow of the album".

In the special boxed-edition of 'Stop the Clocks' at the end of the 'Lock the Box' interview, when Liam was told 'Whatever' was not on the track-listing he said "Thank fuck for that".

Cover





















The cover was designed by Sir Peter Blake, best known for his design of the sleeve for The Beatles' album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, but also well recognized within the genre for his work on the cover of Paul Weller's Stanley Road album.

According to Blake, he chose all of the objects in the picture at random, but the sleeves of Sgt. Pepper's and Definitely Maybe were in the back of his mind. He claims, "It's using the mystery of Definitely Maybe and running away with it." Familiar cultural icons which can be seen on the cover include Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, Michael Caine (replacing the original image of Marilyn Monroe, which couldn't be used for legal reasons) and the seven dwarfs from Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs.

Blake also revealed that the final cover wasn't the original one. That design featured an image of the shop 'Granny Takes A Trip' on the Kings Road in Chelsea, London.

Liam Gallagher On Primal Scream


Liam Gallagher has spoken to the NME Gold about Primal Scream, he said he's seen them a few times and expressed his love for Bobby Gillespie.

"I was trying to remember the first time I saw primal Scream, and I thought it was at this festival up in Glasgow. Slam, I think it was called. It was around the time of Screamadelica, I think, and we'd done a load of Es and gone up there, but they weren't playing: we just walked in to one of the tents, and the DJ started playing 'Come Together', and all I remember is thinking 'What the fuck is this?' It was just... the bollocks, man.

He added "And I saw them a few times since I've been in London. I love Bobby Gillespie, man, he's a dude. I went down to The Bunker a few times, there old studio in primrose Hill. I know there's a story about us jamming with the guy from Can - I don't remember him, but apparently we had a little jam. I obviously can't play anything, so I must have sat in the corner talking absolute shit on drugs."

 

Liam Gallagher On Yoko Ono


Liam Gallagher has spoken to the NME Gold about Yoko Ono, he said "She was nice, really nice to me".

He said "I went to the Dakota once, I was in a hotel, and one of my mates went 'You should try and meet Yoko,' It was when (my son) Lennon was born or a couple of months after, I went, 'nah, I'm not into all that bollocks, meeting people.' And he's like, 'Just let me make a call.' So he does it, and then he goes 'You'll never guess what's happened. They've just got back and said do you want a morning meeting or an evening meeting?' I was sat at the bar, going 'Leave it out.' So for a joke I said, I'll have a morning meeting. Next morning. I'm having breakfast and he's like 'We've got to go, it's on.' We were at a hotel down the road, so I had a quick little quick drink to calm my nerves, walked up the roadand the geezer's going 'Can I help you, sir?' and I went. 'yeah it's Mr Gallagher.' So we go through the forecourt into this little lift, one of those old wind-up lifts".

He added "We go to her floor - I won't say what floor she's on - press the number, and she opened the door. She's like 'D'you want a cup of tea?' and we start talking. She was nice, really nice to me. On one of her banners it says "While I've been hibernating I've been gathering wings'. I've been trying to get that in a song for ages. I could never get it in, but I got it on 'I've All I need' on the new album. Got it in, man. After all these years."

Liam Gallagher On The La's


Liam Gallagher has spoken to the NME Gold about the La's, and said that the band were as important to him as The Stones Roses.

"The La's were as important to me as The Stones Roses, without a doubt. Those two to me are like The Beatles and the Stones of my generation. Just as a frontman for me, and his look, Lee Mavers is up there with Ian brown. Amazing songwriter, but he was a proper, proper frontman as well. he's got a Marley thing. i think. I met him a few times, he's always a bit spikey and that, but I'm still intrigued by him, which is the most beautiful thing".

He added "He's gonna be like Prince when he pops his clogs: he's going to have like an Aladdin's cave, with all sorts of mad albums, but he just doesn't want to get caught up in all the razzamatazz, which is fair enough. The thing about lee Mavers is that he's not being bought. he's not for fucking sale. I love that about him. But at the same time , I wish we could hear more music by him. It's like 'All right, you're not for sale and you're not having a sale, but at least open the shop doors every now and again.'"

Liam Gallagher On Paul Weller


Liam Gallagher has spoken to the NME Gold about Paul Weller, he said that he was into a lot of his stuff and that in the 90s he was madder than me and Noel put together.

He said "My other brother Paul was more into The Jam, when we were all living at home. He was massive on them. I really like The Jam as well, but I remember when he came out with his solo stuff, that was what I really got into, when he was doing 'Into Tomorrow' and things like that. After that I was into a lot of his stuff. I remember I went to see him at the Apollo with Steve Cradock around 'Wild Wood' and it was amazing. Amazing voice, amazing songs. He Looked like an honorary Manc at the time. I thought he looked really cool. I like him then, I still like him now. All his new stuff is great: that thing he did for that boxing film recently (Jawbone), mega. we hung around him a lot, obviously, when Oasis kicked off".

He added "He was Noel's mate, but I got on with him, without a doubt, top geezer. he used to tell me to keep writing songs, keep going with it, and he always into my voice. I think. He digs it. And he was mad as fuck. In the 90s he was madder than me and Noel put together, I'm telling you: he was wild."

Liam Gallagher On His Love For 'The Verve'


Liam Gallagher has spoken to the NME Gold about one of his favourite bands The Verve, he said that he loved them and that they don't make bands like them anymore.

"The first time I saw The Verve was in Manchester, at the Hop & Grape or somewhere like that. They were fucking heavy in the early days. I loved touring with them with Oasis. Whereas we were a bit more punky, they were out there: more a jam thing. I just remember Ashcroft having his socks and shoes off and all that. I saw Richard recently, we were both doing a gig in Finland: he was on fire. His voice has got really gnarly. and he was on his hands and knees, good energy about him".

He added "A lot of people, proper verve heads, didn't like 'Urban Hymns' but I think there's some amazing songs on that. Before they didn't have that 'Blue' is an amazing song, but all the songs on 'Urban Hymns' are great. I remember when it was kicking off for them, we were in America, and hearing about it. It was like. 'What's going on with this? better get back to England and sort this shit out.' But I loved them, I really did. They don't make them like that anymore."

Liam Gallagher On The Funniest Thing To Happen To Him In 2017


Liam Gallagher has been asked by the current issue of Q what was the funniest thing to happen to him in 2017.

He said "There was this bloke on Hampstead Heath who dropped his trousers and showed me his John Lennon tattoo. But the crowd surfing was pretty funny. It's not all it's cracked up to be but it was good to get among the people. There were a couple of (Foo Fans) down the front that were booing me, so I thought I'd just crowd-surf to fart on all their heads. Cop that you cunt! Then other people were cheering so I'd fart on their heads too. Have that cunt! It was good revenge".

He said "I didn't mate. Today is the first time I've been out since I heard about it. I hadn't even left the house. I thought I'd save myself for you lot. I've been recovering from my trip to LA, where I went crowd surfing. I'd had a drink and that, and I thought we were going to sing 'I Am The Walrus', I forgot the words and jumped into the crowd. People were pinching my arse really hard so I was getting over that."

Check out the video below of Liam joining the Foo Fighters at the CalJam festival to perform The Beatles 'Come Together'.

Then there's the sold-out UK tour of arenas and then Australia. It's going to be great man".

Liam Gallagher On His Highlight Of 2017


Liam Gallagher has spoken to the new issue of Q and was asked what his highlight of 2017 was.

During the same interview he was asked did he expect it to sell 100,000 copies in its first week.

He replied ""No, I didn't to be fair. I didn't think I was even going to make a record this year. So to have done that has been amazing".
