Oasis  OUT NOW: Be Here Now: Remastered with rare + unreleased tracks + the legendary Mustique Demos

Handwritten lyric sheets, including 'Roll With It', 'All Around The World', and 'She's Electric', displayed at the London, Tokyo and Manchester at Oasis exhibitions.

"They're hard-drinking, groupie-shagging, drug-snorting louts. They're the Gallagher brothers. And they're huge."

The 'Definitely Maybe' artwork broken down:
Clockwise from bottom left:
– The large image of Burt Bacharach in the bottom left of the artwork is, first and foremost, a straightforward homage to one of Noel's musical heroes but the positioning of the picture is also significant. It is reminiscent of where Pink Floyd positioned the artwork for the soundtrack to the film, Gigi, on the cover of their 1969 album, Ummagumma. One presumes this was Noel's nod to the prog rockers, rather than the Vincente Minnelli musical film.
– There is a small photograph of Manchester United legend George Best in the window, which was guitarist Bonehead's defiant reminder that not every member of Oasis is a Manchester City fan.
– The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is playing on the television. Noel has since declared that this Clint Eastwood western is one of his favourite films.
– Inevitably, if Bonehead was having a picture of a Manchester United player, the Gallagher brothers were going to have a bigger picture of a Manchester City legend. And who else but Rodney Marsh, the club's then record signing, who scored 35 league goals in 116 appearances.
– Nothing too cryptic here, just a nice reference to Definitely Maybe track, Cigarettes and Alcohol.

“Bonehead had mentioned the tale of Keith Moon driving his Rolls Royce into a swimming pool and that’s where the concept began for this piece. People think it’s a Photoshop job but we actually put the Roller in the pool. It was from a scrapyard and the back end was smashed in.” (Brian Cannon)

"Liam onstage at Maine Road. According to manager Marcus Russell: 'Maine Road was more like a pilgrimage to their spiritual home than a gig'." (Photo & Words: Jill Furmanovsky, speaking to The Guardian in 2009. Full article ▶︎ https://Oasis.lnk.to/JFGArt )

"That was the year Liam got his arse out and started singing ‘Shitelife’ when we won. We were suitably well-oiled, shall we say. A good rock’n’roll night out.” (Bonehead on the 1996 #BRITAWARDS where Oasis took home 3 awards: Best Group, Best Album & Best Video).

"WONDERDROOL" (News Of The World - 24.03.1996)
Happy Sunday!

"My soul slides away
But don't look back in anger
Don't look back in anger
I heard you say."

"You've got the band you always wanted"
