    beginning. In a review of their first album, Definitely Maybe, Stuart Maconie referred to them as “manna from heaven in a slow newspaper week.” He gave almost as much attention to the rivalry between the two brothers and core members of the band, Noel and Liam Gallagher, as he did to the music itself. He pointed out that the music was nothing new and cited the Sex Pistols, T. Rex, the Stooges, and the Beatles as influences (Maconie).

    My mother told me once, reluctantly, about how, when she was a small child, she knew how to fly. She said that sometimes, on the warm, lonely, summer afternoons that occur so frequently in the memories of a country childhood, she would lie down on the porch of my grandfather’s small farmhouse. She would lie there, feeling the rough, weathered boards press splinters into the skin of her back and legs and arms, and then she would close her eyes and be very still. She would imagine what she looked

Starting with the first track on the Album, “Hello” is the perfect title to introduce the album. After a thirty second introduction, Liam Gallagher’s gravelly yet polished up voice sets the tone of the album early on. When you think you think you know this song inside out you will always find something you didn’t notice before. Oasis’s music on this album has been influenced by many

It does however result in a confluence of different representations, that is, personal stories (memory) and public stories (history). Mark Baker’s biography and autobiography ‘The Fiftieth Gate: A Journey Through Memory’, explores his parents’ memories which are both verified and contradicted by Baker’s historical findings, as each asserts their claim through these different
