Tim Burgess inherited Mick Jagger’s rock & roll swagger and big lips before Oasis’ Liam Gallagher became famous for them. When Burgess debuted with his group The Charlatans in the late ‘80s, he looked and sounded almost interchangeable with many of the Manchester, England artists at the time but by embracing other musical styles and moving forward, he has actually outlived his contemporaries.
The Charlatans released their 12th album, Modern Nature, in 2015 and Burgess returned to his solo career, releasing a mix album called Tim Burgess Presents:
Set for release on 23rd September via Bella Union, Tim Burgess has announced his new album ‘Typical Music’.
Liam Gallagher (born 21 September 1972) is an English singer and songwriter. He achieved fame as the lead singer and frontman of the rock band Oasis from 1991 to 2009, and later fronted the rock band Beady Eye from 2009 to 2014, before starting a solo career in 2017.
Liam Gallagher has shared a new single called ‘C’mon You Know’, which the musician has himself dubbed “the sound of the summer”.
The song acts as the title track from the former Oasis frontman’s third solo album, which is out on May 27 via Warner. He’s already previewed the record with its lead single ‘Everything’s Electric’, featuring Dave Grohl on drums, no less.
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.
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.
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.
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.
