Oasis were an English band formed in Manchester in 1991. The band (originally named “The Rain”) consisted of:
* Liam Gallagher (OUR KID), lead vocals and tambourine
* Paul Arthur’s (BONEHEAD), guitar
* Paul McGuigan (GUIGSY), bass guitar
* Tony McCarroll, drums
Then, Liam's older brother, Noel Gallagher (THE CHIEF, lead guitar and vocals) joined as a fifth member.
During the course of their existence, they had various changes, but the Gallagher brothers remained until the group's dissolution, which happened in 2009.
They made different albums during their career in the band:
* Definitely Maybe (1994)
* (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? (1995)
* Be Here Now (1997)
* Standing on the Shoulder of Giants (2000)
* Heathen Chemistry (2002)
* Don’t Believe the Truth (2005)
* Dig Out Your Soul (2008)
Oasis were an important part of ‘90s UK pop culture.
Some curiosities about them⬇️
* The band's name was taken from Swindon Oasis Leisure Centre in England, a clothes shop in Manchester called Oasis, and a taxi rank round the corner from where they lived.
* Liam didn’t take part to Oasis' MTV Unplugged performance. He sat in the balcony with a beer and he heckled Noel during the concert.
* In 1996, Oasis performed two nights at Knebworth for an audience of 125,000 each night, which were at the time the largest outdoor concerts in UK history. 2.5 million people applied for tickets and it’s the highest demand for a show in British history. (As Noel used to say: THIS IS HISTORY!)
* They have had eight UK number-one singles and eight UK number-one albums.
* (What's the Story) Morning Glory? is the UK’s fifth best-selling album and it was the UK’s biggest-selling album of the ‘90s. * Oasis lost their bass player before their 1999 tour, so they hired the guitarist Andy Bell. He never played a bass before. Liam, in fact, said: “If he can play the guitar, he can play the f----n' bass.”
* Noel left their 2000 European tour after he and Liam got in a fight in Barcelona. They finished the tour without him.
