Noel Gallagher: ‘Oasis were 100 times bigger than today’s big bands’

The Chief looks back at the sense of expectation surrounding the band as they recorded ‘Be Here Now’.


 Noel Gallagher has spoken about the “massive” impact Oasis had on music during their mid-’90s imperial phase.
“I don’t think anyone will ever be able to fully explain to people who are maybe teenagers now what a colossal thing Oasis was in the lives of anybody who gave a shit about music,” Gallagher said. “It was massive.”

He added: “There’s big things in music now. I do festivals all over the world and there are big bands. Fucking Oasis was a 100 times bigger than all of them put together, do you know what I mean? Particularly in England. You couldn’t accurately describe it to anyone [now].”
