What’s The Story Morning Glory? wasn’t just one of the biggest albums in 1995. It was one of the biggest albums in the history of rock music. There are very few people who you could slap the label of “rock star” on and feel okay about it, but Liam and Noel Gallagher fit the mold. They’re what the British would describe as “mental” in every sense of the word, so to say that a documentary about the rocky relationship between the two would be “must-see” is an understatement.
When most of us heard Oasis in 1995, we were much too young to understand all of the influences they were under. I’m talking about alcohol and drugs, you guys. And through all the drug and alcohol-fueled songs they belted out to stadiums, you knew there had to be something going on behind the scenes. The first time I realized it was during MTV’s Unplugged when Noel took the stage without Liam who was supposedly not performing because he had vocal issues. But when the camera panned to him watching the show from a suite, he was smoking a cigarette with a drink in his hand getting ready to flip off the camera.
So, uh, yeah, I think this new documentary about the band titled Supersonic miiiight be a little entertaining. Especially judging by the trailer that was released yesterday.
Sign me up. Twice. I know they’re considered to be a fairly mainstream act that some might be weary of putting their fandom behind at the risk of sounding, well, mainstream, but Oasis shred and no one can dispute that. The second you hear the helicopter sound come in on What’s The Story Morning Glory, you want a pint of lager in your hand and a cig hanging out of your mouth while you scream the words along with them in a raspy voice. Supersonic will be equally awesome. Promise. .
