Can you edit the poll to have a 'Completely Indifferent' radio button?

they were great in the way that that the Sex Pistols were great.
i.e. not musically.
but in a cultural sense, utterly crucial.

I like Noel a lot, and I don't think he's a Ned. Top guy in my book. Liam, well, not a Ned, he's "rock n'roll", a bit larger than life, and not having met him personally I don't know if he's a wanker or not. That fight with the Russian mafiosi in Germany didn't sound like fun.

Musically I find it hard (ok, difficult-ish) to listen to them these days (haven't bought much of the later material) but some of the early/mid 90s output was very good - it's just it sounds a bit dated these days (to my ear). If I was forced to vote (Crass loving abstainer, I'm afraid, "Fight War - Not Wars") I suppose I'd say I like them.

Liams a wanker but they did come along at the right time musically, when most other stuff in the charts was shite, still, saying that, there is no originality about them, the attitude of the sex pistols, the music of the beatles...buy definately maybe, heat the other discs up under the grill and make ashtrays or little badges if they shrink enough!! :lol:

Always thought Liam's wanker act was more tongue in cheek than the press ever represented, and he did have one of the best rock'n'roll voices to come along in years, could sing Noel's terrible lyrics and make them sound like his life depended on them. 'Whatever' was a great moment. Noel singing Noel was always pretty terrible though. 'Don't Look Back In Anger' was a bit over-rated I reckon, and that Little by Little was an absolute abomination. But i like them more than I dislike them.

Lian is a wanker but has a good voice, unfortunately spoiled by the lack of talent of his brother, who firstly CAN'T sing, secondly can't make interesting music.

I liked their 1st album, i liked the 2nd album... all the other are crap... a bad copy of a copy of what they done before. The fact that they are 2 dislikable figures doesnt help either.

What's the problem with Noel (not talking about music here)? He seems OK to me.

I think Noel's a top bloke.

I think he's written at least 5 utterly peachy tunes.

I think Liam's a bit of a nob, but I don't let it get to me.

The world is probably a better place for Oasis having been in it, and in that sense, I like them, or at least, the idea of them.

I think Oasis are brilliant. Great music and hugely entertaining. Noel especially seems to be a very funny guy.

As for them not being original....i don't think a TFC messageboard is the place to use that as a criticism !

all the brotherXbrother thing gets on my nerves... also, he thinks he is good and talented, but he isn't to my taste, and even if he was, he's arrogant, and i don't like arrogant people.
When Oasis started to get famous (in brazil at least) Noel said that Damon and Alex should get AIDS and die. What?! Is that something you wish to people... i don't care if it's for the scene, for fun or to get famous. Is a fucking stupid comment... and that's only one of the stupid things he said.
Recently Noel said that all that talk about fair traide from the coldplay guy was a pain in the arse. Again, another comment to show how stupid he is... if he wants to impress the media, make some good music instead of talking shit.
Even when i liked Oasis i never liked Lian and Noel. Both are full of themselves, arrogants, rude and come across as 2 dickheads to me.

He is only saying what he thinks in response to a question ! Why is it trying to impress the media ?....it is just his opinion.

On the whole Noel seems to be one of the only 'rock stars' that dare speak out against anyof his peers. Good on him i say, entertaining stuff. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
