They/He just wrapped up his second year, with an episode counting down his top and bottom twenty favourite Oasis tracks.

The show is on iTunes, but also here:

audioboom.com/posts/7225065-my-20-favourite-least-favourite-oasis-songs-2-year-podcast-anniversary-special-episode


His top 20 is:

20. All Around the World

19. Cigarettes and Alcohol

18. Rock ‘n’ Roll Star

17. Acquiesce

16. My Big Mouth

15. Live Forever

14. Cum On Feel the Noize

13. D’You Know What I Mean?

12. Rockin’ Chair

11. Hello

10. Gas Panic

9. Champagne Supernova

8. Don’t Look Back in Anger

7. Slide Away

6. The Masterplan

5. Let’s All Make Believe

4. Don’t go Away

3. Morning Glory

2. Round Are Way

1. Stay Young

I've listened to most of the episodes, and he's gotten some pretty good interviews - Tony McCarroll, Alan McGee, Brian Cannon, Davey Lane, and Guigs' sister in a recent release had some interesting things to say about the early days.

The latest episode is something. An interview from a few years ago with the director of Noel's first few videos, Mike Bruce - this guy was working on a big narrative based music video compilation with Noel for his last album, Who Built the Moon, but it was canned suddenly at the last minute.

The interview from a few years back is played a fair bit into the episode - by way of introduction the early part of the ep is a recent interview with Mike Bruce and he is scathing of Noel.

Basically Mike told Noel's people that he'd done this interview on a podcast and they told him that the interview couldn't be aired because "Noel likes to keep a separation between his old career and High Flying Birds" - after spending so much time, money, and energy on this film they pulled the plug and left this guy hanging - a dog act.

Some of those picks lol.

I should be on the podcast, but I fear some don't even know the legend of Rollinice.

The most recent episode was a discussion of Oasis' mistakes - the main ones that came up were rushing into BHN, letting Bonehead - and to a lesser extent Guigs - leave, and squandering classic tracks as b-sides.

My own suggestion would be not releasing Don't Go Away as a proper single worldwide; I think that would have been a big hit and would have given them the momentum needed to maintain something closer to their 1995-1997 status into 1998-2000.

Latest episode is WTSMG Reassembled - he'd given DM the same treatment a while back. Based on the songs from the album and the singles b-sides, how would you rearrange the tracklisting is you could - both the host and his guest, music journalist Jeff Slate, provide their tracklistings and rationales.

Opening it with Acquiesce? Including Round are Way? Talk Tonight as a hidden closing track?

Latest episode is all about "Don't go away" - it's one of the host's top 5 Oasis tracks, and the listener poll gave it a majority 5 (51.2% of the 334 votes). Lotta love for the track, folks. I gave it a 9, this board gave it a 6.25- for shame!

Would have made a good single proper, possibly kept the momentum going - I think their trajectory would have been very different with less of a downturn had this been released and promoted widely.

Better than Wonderwall and it was a pretty big hit in the US.
