Rant written by The Sound Of Confusion's Scottish Correspondent.
Is there anything more annoying than ardent Oasis fans!!! They seem to believe that music both started and finished with the Gallagher brothers and that anyone who doesn't regard Live Forever as the undisputed zenith of sound recording history is only saying so to appear cool. They don't seem to be able to fathom that people might just simply prefer other bands and that some of us enjoy hearing new music. Invariably this breed of super fan was actually a bit young to get Oasis at their peak, only discovering them around Heathen Chemistry and then playing catch up ever since, wowing us all with facts and stories we already know BECAUSE WE REMEMBER THEM FROM THE TIME!!!! Unfortunately their overwhelming desire to cram up on all things Oasis leaves them in a bubble that offers protection from having to try anything new or interesting, said bubble appears to be only penetrable by Kasabian and the fuckin Enemy!! They arrogantly spout 'If Oasis hadn't been so popular you'd all love them'.....emm who do you think got them popular knobhead - some of us have moved on deal with it!!
The thing is I really do like Oasis, but these guys make it bloody hard work to sustain that feeling - and now they're at it with Beady Eye too, there's not a chance a merger of Heavy Stereo and Hurricane #1 will ever yield a batch of life changing songs, if they do I'll eat my sky blue snood!!!
Thanks I feel better now.
