I have been listening to a song by Liam Gallagher’s new band quite a bit this week. It seems he has retained his ability to belt out an anthemic tune. Oasis became something of a caricature of themselves towards the end, but that doesn’t diminish the fact that they released two staggering albums. The fact that Definitely Maybe and (What’s the story) Morning Glory? coincided with me really discovering music for the first time means I will always have a special appreciation for them.
I found it hard to believe that Slide Away was released in the summer of ‘94 but it has aged well. The combination of the towering guitar riff and Liam’s imploring vocal that makes it very compelling.
