Biography

The first lineup of this scandalously famous band consisted Paul Arthurs, Paul McGuigan and Toni McCarroll - all from The Rain band, which was renamed in Oasis after Liam Gallagher joined the command. In some time, Liam's elder brother Noel was added to the group - on the terms that he would become the soloist and major author of Oasis. Since that, Gallagher brothers were its unchangeable leaders. It proved to be problematic to break through in the British scene, but in 1993, the band received the invitation to perform in the King Tut's Wah Wah Hut club in Glasgow. However, the musicians had to fight to enter the club, as the security refused to let them in saying they were not in the list. The concert was worth it, as Oasis caught the attention of right people on the scene and signed a recoding contract. Soon after it, the first Britpop singles Columbia, Supersonic and Shakermaker saw light. In September 1994, the band released the brilliant album Definitely Maybe that made Oasis famous in all over Britain. The hit Live Forever was followed by the first, but no ways last incident, featuring Oasis members - they were to make gigs in the Netherlands, but after a fight on the ferry-boat the musicians were refused to enter the country. After rock single Cigarettes And Alcohol and a softer Whatever hit, Oasis toured the USA, where Noel and Liam had a serious argue.

In 1995, the artists recorded the new disc (What's The Story) Morning Glory? with the single Some Might Say. That year Oasis was left by Toni McCarroll, who was substituted by Alan White. That summer, Oasis headlined the Glastonbury festival, where a competition between Oasis and other Britpop band Blur started. The so-called The Battle Of Britpop finished with the victory of Oasis, as there were sold more copies of their disc (What's The Story) Morning Glory? than of Blur's The Great Escape. In 1997, the new full-length Be Here Now hit the shelves, preceded by the rumors of the Oasis collapse. The disc differed from the previous ones with harder sounding and elaborated arrangements. After the hit All Around The World with a video, made in the manner of Yellow Submarine of greatly admired by Oasis The Beatles, the band announced the hiatus. However, Gallagher brothers continued to enter tabloids for their indecent behavior. In 1999, the band stated that it got down to their new work. The record was interrupted because Noel and Liam had to look for a substitute for two members - both Paul McGuigan and Paul Arthurs left Oasis. Colin Archer became the new rhythm-guitarist of the band, while Andy Bell took the bass.

In February 2000, the record Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants saw light. It was filled with psychedelic experiments and produced Go Let It Out single. The following world tour was highlighted with scandals. Thus, Noel Gallagher and that-time Oasis member Alan White divorced with their wives. Closer to the end of the tour, Alan had to leave the band due to health problems and his brother Steve changed him on his place. After the tour, the musicians went to the studio and recorded their new album Heathen Chemistry. The disc was released in 2002 and musically had a significant flavor of 60's and 70's. The tour around the US was full of scandals and several Oasis concerts in Germany were cancelled because the band members took an active part in a big fight in one nightclub of Munich. After the tour, the band went on a hiatus. In 2005, the artists made a forceful comeback with the excellent album Don't Believe The Truth with pop-rock smash hits Lyla, The Importance Of Being Idle and Let There Be Love. Before the record was released, Steve White exited Oasis and Zak Starkey, the son of the famous The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr, became the drummer of the group. In 2006, the collection of the best hits by Oasis Stop The Clocks was released. In 2007, the artists announced they went into the studio to work on the new long-play. In 2008, Starkey left the band due to a conflict with Noel and Chris Sherrock, who worked with Robbie Williams before, took the drums for Oasis. With the lineup renewed, the group completed the making of the record. Called Dig Out Your Soul, the album was loaded with powerful rock guitars, which made it sound like a product of the eighties. Two years later the rockers made an excellent present to all their fans by releasing a wonderful compilation album Time Flies... 1994–2009 (2010), which included the band’s twenty seven singles that appeared in the period from 1994 to 2009. The record debuted at the very top of the UK Chart in a very confident way; thereby it proved not only the highest level of Time Flies... 1994–2009, but also the permanent interest of music lovers to Oasis’ creativity.
