Oasis: Titanic!

Paul Lester, Uncut, March 2000

OASIS, if you hadn't noticed, have just resurfaced. But will they sink or swim? After the druggy excesses of Be Here Now, following the departure of two members, and with British rock in a sorry state, the Biggest Band Since The Beatles have a lot to prove. Which is why, on the eve of the release of Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants – their darkest collection of songs to date – NOEL GALLAGHER has chosen this moment to give the frankest, not to mention longest, interview of his career.
