Oasis - Champagne Supernova (1995)

on November 08, 2023

It would be good that one day, scientists look into the case of Manchester: how such a city could generate so many legendary groups? The Stone Roses, The Smiths, Joy Division, New Order, Happy Mondays…just that!

During the year 1993, the most used refrain of this city remains the “ooh aah Cantona! from United supporters. However, thanks to a few brilliant singles, the name of Oasis and the Gallagher brothers (fervent supporters of the Citizens…the rival of united) began to overshadow the local football specialty.

In addition to being talented, Noel and Liam are also decked out with a big mouth and an oversized ego as rarely seen. That said and with hindsight, when you were able to lay two albums like "Definitely Maybe" in 94 and "Morning Glory" in 95, you can afford certain things! I will not insult you by reminding you of the global tidal wave that were these two unstoppable singles sung everywhere…especially in the stadiums!

Far from being anecdotal, the extraordinary shouting matches between the two brothers punctuated the life of the group, until the last one on August 28, 2009 backstage at the “Rock en Seine” festival in Paris. Smashed guitars, blows exchanged = immediate dissolution of the group.

By the way, why my choice (which commits only me) of Champagne supernova? Because Liam sings there like a god and Paul Weller participates!
