Noel Gallagher on the reasons of “Supersonic” success

During a recent interview on BBC Radio 6 Music, Noel Gallagher shared his opinion on the reasons why people loved Oasis’ film “Supersonic” so much.

Noel thinks that part of the success is due to the fact that “It’s all about the glory” of Oasis’ early years.

He said: “The thing why people have responded to the film so well is this: it finishes at the right point. So it doesn’t discuss the long, protracted fall-out, which nobody wants to get into. So it’s kind of this rise to the biggest gig there ever was at that time. So it’s all about the glory.”

Noel then added: “I think Liam comes out of it quite well, as some kind of mad drunken mystic from another time. If only that had lasted, you know…”

He also explained that he hopes that a new generation of musicians will get inspired by the film.

“When I finished watching it and I had to sign off of it, I was saying ‘Honestly, if this doesn’t inspire people to pick up guitars, I don’t know what will’. Because no one in that band was a genius – no one, not even me, and I wrote all the songs.”

“It’s quite sad in a way because it kind of shines a light on the way the music business was, particularly for guitar music, which hasn’t got a presence on national radio anymore. And it makes you feel kind of happy that it happened, but kind of quite sad that it’s not like that anymore.”
