Oasis should get over themselves

Posted on September 2, 2009


So, the inevitable has finally happened and Oasis have split. Am I the only one who is a little bit relieved? The endless rows between the Gallagher brothers were getting repetitive and boring, while the bands recent albums were exceedingly poor compared to the masterpieces of their heyday.

Those hoping for some phoenix to rise from the ashes will no doubt be disappointed. Liam was for long parts of his career carried by his more-talented brother, who in any case seems creatively spent these days. More likely is yet another kiss-and-make-up session, followed by a ‘reunion tour’ that will further fill the pockets of the brothers and whoever the rest of the band are.

I say they should just leave it at that. The attention-seeking brothers have finally parted in the most public way possible. Brit-pop was over years ago, and the Oasis of recent years was a pale imitation of what went before. Thanks for the memories boys, but go and stay gone.
