It was definitely one of the biggest bands of the 90s—and in the UK, there was a well publicized feud with fellow Brit-pop superstars Blur—we are of course, talking about, Oasis.
In news that should delight Oasis fans everywhere, there is documentary in the works about the band’s rise to super stardom.
Handling the project is the same team behind this year’s Amy Winehouse movie, Amy. With the promise of never-before-seen archive footage, and the fact that we, the audience, get insight from both Noel and Liam, this is shaping up to be one hell of a film. Let’s not forget that the band was rarely out of the headlines, mostly because of the constant feuding between the brothers, and it was these feuds that eventually destroyed the band.
Starting right where it all began, the documentary will follow the journey of Noel Gallagher joining his brother Liam’s band in 1991, getting their record deal, and releasing their debut album Definitely Maybe in 1994. When released, the album became the fastest-selling debut album in British history. Only two years later, the band had sold 250,000 tickets for their now legendary two night Knebworth Park concerts.
According to the online magazine Deadline, Amy director Asif Kapadia will executive-produce alongside James Gay Rees, and Mat Whitecross will direct the film.
In other Oasis related news, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds head to both Madrid and Barcelona in April next year. So far there are only two dates; 8 April 2016 in Madrid at La Riviera, and 9 April 2016 in Barcelona at Sant Jordi Club.
