Noel Gallagher talked about the 90s saying that “Oasis were better than The Stone Roses, Blur and Pulp”.
In a new interview with Mojo, the former Oasis guitarist spoke about the glory days of mid- nineties.
“We always had unshakable self-belief in Oasis,” Noel said.
“Going into the start of 1994 we didn’t have ‘Supersonic’, but everything else was already written.”
“Everybody who heard the demos of what would become ‘Definitely Maybe’ were freaking out, so we just wanted to seize the moment.”
“We’d been talking the talk amongst ourselves for a couple of years and when it came down to it, we were ready. Every minute I spent awake, I just knew it was going to happen.”
Noel also added:
“Back then, I’d hear Blur or Pulp or Suede on the radio and think – f— these idiots. But looking back at it now, it was an amazing time for indie music, or whatever you want to call it. But we were ready to take over. We were ready to wipe everybody out.
“I thought Blur, Pulp, The Stone Roses, The La’s, whoever, they were great people and they had one or two great tunes, but we had twelve. However loud they were, we were louder. However fast they were, we were faster.
“However good they were, we would trump it. They were all great bands, but we were better. It was as simple as that.”
