20 Years Oasis “(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?”
On October 2, 1995, British rock band Oasis released their second studio album, “What’s the Story) Morning Glory?”, Which subsequently conquered the world. Here is the story of the album, told by the mouths of the Gallagher brothers.
The second album made the pompous indie heroes important rock and roll giants, gathering entire stadiums, and turned Oasis into the largest British band on the planet. The album, which competed with Blur’s “The Great Escape”, includes some of the greatest indie hymns of all time. “(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?” has been sold over 22 million copies.
Life and music will never be the same as before, but we suggest plunging into the past with the best quotes from the Gallagher brothers over the past 20 years.
Noel that the “Morning Glory” made Oasis more important than God himself: “It’s fair to say that Oasis is higher than Jesus Christ.”
Liam on the meaning of the songs “Morning Glory”: “There are damn meanings in the songs. I have no idea what they mean, but there is still meaning. They mean something that I don’t know specifically.”
Noel on “She’s Electric”: “It was the first song I wrote for the album. Someone asked me if it was about Blur, but it isn’t. It’s like the song The Small Faces or something from The Kinks.” .
Liam on ‘Wonderwall’: ‘Wonderwall’ can be anything. This is just a beautiful word. It’s the same as looking for a bus ticket, and you get so fucked up as you try to find it, that bastard, and when you finally find it, you throw out, “Damn, it’s me Wonderwall.”
Liam about life at that moment: “I’m going through a bad time, but this is my whole life, right? There were good and bad days when I lived on unemployment benefits. I feel good and bad here. A concert is approaching now. so I’m fine. That’s all about what. ”
Noel on mood swings: “When I get drunk, I get sentimental, it’s visible in“ Don’t Look Back In Anger ”or in“ Wonderwall. ”When I have nothing but drugs I turn into a damn impudent bastard.“ Champagne Supernova ” “God, how big is the name? It’s like saying,“ I’m Noel Gallagher. Do you know me? I am the best. I am like Muhammad Ali. When everything is fine with me, you get Get roll with it – small pop songs. Well do you understand? ”
About the older brother of “Definitely Maybe”: “Before we released it, Noel described the album:” One half of him sits in a hammock and drags himself in a huge jamb, and the other wanders through the streets of England with a makeshift bomb in his hands. ”
Liam about their task at that time: “We are in search of music. And everything will be fine. Sometimes I think that it should be so, and sometimes I think that everything is going wrong. Everything is contradictory.”
Noel on the success of the album: “I would like us to let the album settle down and then just leave. He was on line 5 on the Billboard 100 when we started working on“ Be Here Now. ”That’s someone who paid to be bright and smart, told us to leave and earn a little living. ”
Liam loves the sound of the album so much that when he discussed Beady Eye’s second album, “BE,” he said, “This Oasis record was supposed to be made after“ What’s The Story) Morning Glory? ”I’m not saying it’s better than “Be Here Now” or that it’s going to be this or that – I like “Be Here Now.” I won’t say a single bad word about it, but when you sell 20 million copies, people are taking it. ” Okay, let’s throw this formula out one more time. “So I’m a little upset that we never did that.”
About “Definitely Maybe”, in the now legendary documentary “Live Forever”, which talks about the rise and fall of Britpop, Noel said: “Personally, I think that Definitely Maybe is the best album – and all my life I can’t understand why in this country do people buy “(The The Story) Morning Glory?” but not buy “Definitely Maybe.” I just want to say, “Why the hell are you refusing? Why is this all? Are you doing this all just to get me crazy? People are just freaking out. ”
Noel on the rivalry of “Morning Glory” with Blur: “We had no problems with them until they started * to be about singles that moved up and down. Then they started planning concerts in the same cities that we did, then they went to the project “No. 1” in our place, they crossed the road. We postponed the speech and they said they were going to do the same … but didn’t. They played that night and gloated about it. Then we said: “Well, let’s see who the first to be in the hospital with a nervous breakdown you fucking homosexuals.”
On the fight against Blur: The single “Roll With It” led to the “Britpop battle” with Blur’s song “Country House” in the race to become the first No. 1 single in the UK. Liam expressed his feelings well, saying: “We say from the very beginning that we are the only real men. We are honest, and not just a bunch of women.”
Noel on “Hello”: “This is one of three songs on the album that is just about nothing.
