21 (28) Days
Noel and Liam Gallagher, frontmen of multiplatnum rock outfit Oasis, are some of the most musically gifted assholes out there. Oasis has really come to represent a generation for me. The clashing ruckus of the idleness of youth with the intensity of growing up, compressed into sweepingly beautiful rock melodies. Everything, aside from their notorious dick attitudes, was wondrously constructed. To this day, few bands are able to impart the degree of nostalgia associated with Oasis. What’s more, they’ve been cited as influence for many prominent musicians today, but really, their music is timeless.
Oasis-Don’t Look Back In Anger (Acoustic)
After Oasis split-up, Noel and Liam went off and started their own side-projects, Noel’s arguably gaining more attention. Of the two brothers, Noel tended to take the backstage more. This is evident in the lyrical construction of his self-titled debut, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. The album is refined but honest, generally recalling the glory and pitfalls of the rock and roll lifestyle. Yet it’s surprisingly unpretentious. It’s the kind of stuff that would make for a great live performance. He’s taking the stage at Coachella on Saturday. I wouldn’t recommend missing him.
