Description

Remastered edition of Oasis' classic debut album. 'In 20 years' time, people will buy DEFINITELY MAYBE and listen to it for what it was. That's what is important.' Noel Gallagher, August 1994. Remarkably confident words from a guitarist on the eve of his band's debut album release. But Oasis were always certain in their abilities - and the public were just as clear the five-piece were on the right track. Let's get the statistics out of the way. On it's release in August 1994, DEFINITELY MAYBE sold a record-breaking 86,000 copies in it's first week, the highest first-week sales for a debut album in Britain. It has since gone on to sell 5 million around the world. Over the course of their eight albums until disbanding in 2009, Oasis sold over 70 million albums. More importantly, the songs sound as fresh and relevant today as they did 20 years ago. A hunger to escape will always sound vital, especially if it's sung as mesmerically as Liam Gallagher and written with the urgency of Liam's older brother Noel.

Profile
Phenomenally successful Manchester (Burnage) formed rock & roll band from 1991.



Oasis were formed out of the ashes of a 1990-formed band called The Rain (contrary to popular belief named after the consistent dull weather in Manchester NOT after The Beatles B-Side) consisting of Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan, Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, Tony McCarroll and Chris Hutton on vocals. Chris was eventually sacked and Liam took over vocal duties.
At the time of Liam joining the band his brother Noel had been working as a guitar roadie for Inspiral Carpets' Clint Boon. Liam saw a poster advertising a gig for them at The Swindon Oasis leisure centre on Noel's bedroom wall and thought "Oasis" was a good name for his group, rather than a rumour that circulated in 1994 saying they were named to describe theirselves as a furtile oasis in a desert of music.

In 2000, after a three year hiatus, two of the founding members (Guigsy and Bonehead) left the group and Noel effectively played their parts on the forth album. Two new musicians were recruited (Gem Archer and Andy Bell - the latter is Welsh and not to be confused with the Erasure singer), initially for touring duties, but became full-time and were even allowed to be part of the songwriting process on the following albums.

On August 28, 2009, Noel announced that he was leaving the band after a "details-unknown" altercation with Liam. The remaining members continue performing as Beady Eye, whereas Noel formed .
