Today’s London – Oasis

Today is gonna be the day
That they’re gonna throw it back to you…

This week my friend Claire and I went to see an exhibition of rare photographs, artifacts and memorabilia of Oasis’ early years to mark the 20th anniversary of the band’s debut single ‘Supersonic’.


Titled Chasing the Sun: Oasis 1993–1997, the exhibition will opened at the the Londonewcastle Project Space in Shoreditch, London – the first exhibition of its kind dedicated directly to the band!

Curated by photographer Lawrence Watson, the exhibition documents many of the band’s now-legendary gigs, from Knebworth to Glastonbury to London’s 100 Club, as well as the creation of their albums ‘Definitely Maybe’, ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’ and ‘Be Here Now’. It featured previously unseen images from photographers Jill Furminovsky, Paul Slattery, Tom Sheehan, Kevin Cummins and Jamie Fry.



I’m sure you’ve heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt…



Hung from the walls were the bands guitars and music videos dancing around the white walls and we sneaked from room to room rolling around like hippies knee deep in mud in the Green Fields of Glasto!


Talking to the songbird yesterday
She flew me to a place not far away
She’s a little pilot in my mind
Singing songs of love to pass the time…

The exhibition is taking place to mark the reissue of the band’s 1994 debut album ‘Definitely Maybe’. They had a set which the exhibition had created in order for us all to re-live the albumn cover – I went straight back to my rock’n’roll days whereas Claire was poised at the ready (I think she may have done this before…)


Claire and I – delighted from reminiscent memories of Wonderwall and the golden years of Oasis – giggled from room to room as we photo-bombed the videos dreaming of witnessing the band re-unite or at least get on long enough to hold a series of gigs – we will hold off thinking they will be the Glastonbury headliner!




Ducking and weaving, dancing and singing – this small yet wonderful exhibition really captured the band in their best years – re-kindling our love and well…making sure we went home that evening and listened to the whole discography!




We took a 5 minute break from the British Rock sensation to slip into Shoreditch house to use the services and stock up on sweets — oh and of course a Photo Booth opportunity.


These little treats that London provide really do make me appreciate living in such a great city and proud to come from a country that created the reprobates that made up the one and only Oasis

Maybe youre the same as me, we’ll see things they’ll never see, you and I are gonna live forever…
