yeah, they are totally deserving of their place in rock history. theyre every bit as important as nirvana, the pistols, the clash, the smiths etc in my opinion. but i'm in the 98% of the population who plainly sees that they have done almost nothing but shit since roughly 1996. i think that - like those other bands above - they had a few years of absolute brilliance followed by a decade of turd-inducing mediocrity (ok, ok, with the odd great song - songbird, idle, roll it over, FITB, heart of a star, it's a crime, carry us all). i spose what my post was getting at is that i really wish british music had moved on. i'd be happy for oasis to exist the way the stones or morrissey do (ie. just release a record every few years, tour and then fuck off again). but they seem to be referenced by every other new band as if theyre they messiahs when in fact theyre just very naughty boys who got lucky.

For those complete pacifists out there, as i myself am counted, who harbour desires to sometimes hit back but really dont dare and never would anyway as in reality they abhor violence - Liam gives him a great left dig at around 1.39 :arrow:

a bit of an Ian Brown moment "have the security got him? right, lemme in!". probably except Liam could back it up had he not been so stunned maybe.
a bad fall, onto the monitor with a guitar round your neck, Noel's guitar is lush too, bet the security and stage crew have a hell of a lot to answer to. not the biggest Oasis fan, but that's just rubbish, shouldn't happen to any performer.

From Noel's tour diary ..

06/09/08
Not much happening today. Did I mention I bumped into Jimmy Page? We only ever seem to cross paths when I'm hammered.

By the way.. has anyone seen that YouTube footage of Lee Mavers hanging out with Pete Doherty? BONGOS!!!

I cannot believe that the people on this mighty board who managed to get the kitchen tape and the Hedges album, can't get some old Comic Relief footage from...somewhere.

Get to it lads/lasses... :wink:

actually they were. strokes, when they were good, i didnt consider a US band at all. they could have come straight out of camden. in fact, they did six months later. just called themselves the libertines.

what i mean is that they both initially did fuck all in america while they cleaned up in britain. it's got nothing to do with influences or...vorsprung durch technik. i'm talking about popularity and geography. course, i do realise that jack white is now huge in the US and UK (and the strokes less so). but initially the UK press broke both of them over here - on a mainstream scale - a long time before they made any kind of inroads in their own countries. i mean, the strokes headlined reading here when they were still playing theatres in the US.

people underestimate the beegees cos they only think of saturday night fever but i think their songs from the 1960s are superb. the strokes were good but as for the white stripes, i think they are over-rated. raconteurs are ok tho.
there she goes again!
