4Ever Songs: Oasis “Wonderwall”

If you’re looking for a peak moment in the career of Oasis, those rough-and-tumble, rude-and-ready bastions of BritPop, “Wonderwall” is that moment. As a matter of fact, it’s probably the acme of that entire musical movement that included bands like Blur and Pulp and ruled the roost for a brief, heady time in the mid-’90s. The song, featured on the band’s nearly perfect second album (What’s The Story) Morning Glory, not only enthralled the hometown fans, reaching #2 in the U.K., but it also broke the band to the American pop audience, hitting #8 on the Billboard charts.

Best Covers: Aurora ‘Half The World Away’

Norwegian singer Aurora has covered Oasis song ‘Half The World Away.’

Half the World Away” was written and recorded by Oasis’ Noel Gallagher in late 1994. It was released as the B-Side to the single “Whatever” and later became the theme song for the British series The Royle Family in 1998. Aurora’s version of “Half of the World Away” is fuller in sound with piano, soaring strings and bells accompanying her bright-eyed performance.

Hit of the week: Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds ‘Black Star Dancing’

Noel Gallagher, it seems, was not content to let his brother Liam Gallagher get all the solo record glory and has announced his newest EP. He’s gone as far as to share the EP’s title track to whet your appetite. But it’s nothing like you’d expect.

The track is a space-tinged groove which has more in common with EDM than Britpop and will see Noel move into a new sphere. He opened up about some of his influences for the record “It manages to combine the influences of David Bowie, INXS, U2, Queen, Indeep and ZZ Top!,” said the former Oasis leading man.

Divus Julius presents…The Snuts

The Snuts are building an undeniably rapid and devoted following in their native Scotland (notably selling out Glasgow’s King Tuts Wah Wah Hut in a matter of hours).

Most appealingly, their fan base has grown around the two most fundamentally important ingredients of any upcoming band – big tunes and an overwhelming, all encompassing live show. Fans of Oasis, Arctic Monkeys etc should not miss.

Favourite Gig: Liam Gallagher

Liam Gallagher, estàtic cantant d’Oasis, una de les bandes de més èxit del pop britànic dels últims anys al costat del seu germà de Noel Gallagher, amb qui manté una relació conflictiva desde fa anys, passa per Barcelona per presentar ‘As you were’ (2017), primer disc que edita sota el seu nom després del projecte Beady Eye i que ha estat tot un èxit al Regne Unit. Avui en concert a Razzmatazz.

Best Covers: Portugal. The Man “Don’t Look Back in Anger”

Following the horrific attacks in London the Oasis stadium shaker “Don’t Look Back in Anger” returned to relevance as those affected by the tragedies used the song as a rallying call for unity and positivity. Both Noel and Liam Gallagher responded appropriately, with Noel donating royalties from the song to various organizations and Liam adding the tune to his solo repertoire.

Portugal. The Man also adopted the tune into their live rotation stateside, playing it at a number of recent gigs including a special collaboration with Cage the Elephant’s Matt Shultz at Bonnaroo. The band recently sat for an acoustic session and recorded the heartfelt cover in a stripped down setting.

U2 celebra el 30è aniversari de ‘The Joshua Tree’

Bono i companyia tornen a Barcelona a l’estadi Olímpic de Montjuïc per la porta gran per commemorar el 30è aniversari de ‘The Joshua Tree’ (1987), el cinquè àlbum de la banda irlandesa, que inclou ‘hits’ com ‘With or without you’, ‘I still havent found what I’m looking for’ o ‘Where the streets have no name’, i que en aquesta gira interpretaran sencer.

Número 1 al Regne Unit, Irlanda i els Estats Units (el primer del grup a aconseguir-ho), va vendre més de 25 milions d’exemplars a tot el món i va convertir U2 en superestrelles.

Produït per Brian Eno i Daniel Lanois, l’icònic art de l’àlbum és obra del fotògraf i cineasta Anton Corbijn, que en aquell moment tot just començava a donar-se a conèixer.

Els teloners a la pota europea de la gira, inclòs el xou a Barcelona, seran Noel Gallagher (ex-Oasis) i els seus High Flying Birds. Convidats de luxe per a una de les grans cites amb la música en directe de l’any.
