Celebrating Oasis’ debut release, 20 years on. It went on to become the fastest selling debut album in British history. A title that they held until the Arctic Monkeys released their debut album “Whatever People Say I Am, That’s what I’m Not”, in 2006.
"Oasis bigotry", is a term I use and came up with to help demonstrate the connection between Oasis lovers and haters. Both sides despise each other due to their musical differences, but most importantly…both sides demonstrate that they are bad as each other, due to the fact that there is no right answer about who is good, and who is bad….there is only preference and appreciation. People will continue to forget that other great bands such as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin The Who, Rolling Stones and a shed load more, have all taken their inspirations from previous musicians to produce the music that they did. This is a debate I continue to have with some of my dear friends.
Along with Blur, the were the pioneers of a genre later named as “Brit Pop”.
