Oasis: Nine Months That Shook The World

Stuart Maconie, Q, November 1994

IT'S A terrible name. Terrible. It immediately and unjustly tags them as one of those risibly mediocre makeweights of the so-called 'baggy" explosion. It is taken, it is claimed, from the band's favourite ladies' clothing outlet but, whatever the provenance, it's still, well, terrible.
