A must-see for any Oasis fan, with much rare and unseen footage
“Oasis: Supersonic” (2016 release from the UK; 122 min.) is a documentary about the early years of Britain’s biggest band of the 90s. As the movie opens, the voice-over mentions that the band went in less than 3 years from signing to a label to headlining Knebworth 1996 in front of 250,000 fans, and the footage shows us the mega-madness that event was. We then go back in time, to the childhood of Noel and Liam (5 years younger) and oldest brother Paul, and how Noel and Liam end up in music. At this point we’re 10 min. into the movie.
Couple of comments: this documentary is directed by Mat Whitecross, a Brit who’s directed other music-related documentaries. More tellingly, the movie is executive produced by Asif Kagadu, who last year directed the brilliant and Oscar-winning Amy Winehouse documentary “Amy”. This documentary made a number of very smart choices, including: (1) it focuses ONLY on the early years (nothing beyond 1996 is covered or mentioned), and the bulk of the film is about 1994-95, when the band reached it critical and commercial peak with the first 2 albums and the many related singles and B-sides from that era; (2) the sibling rivalry between Noel and Liam is not neglected but neither is it overplayed. I loved Noel’s observation “I am like a cat, while Noel’s like a dog. I am independent, while he craves attention and begs ‘play with me! throw me the ball!”, ha! (3) the documentary contains some amazing footage, including of Oasis’ very first gig (8/18/91, when Noel hadn’t even joined yet) and the infamous gig in Glasgow (5/31/93) where they were spotted by Creation Records co-owner Alan McGee, who promptly signed them. (And Noel comments about that gig: “There were 7 people there, and he (McGee) was 2 of them. So yea, we were an overnight sensation, 2 1/2 years in the making.” The rest, as they say, is history. There are a lot of funny moments sprinkled throughout the film as well, which really keeps the overall mood quite light, and that is a good thing. Bottom line: if you are a fan of Oasis, as I was from the beginning, you absolutely do not want to miss this.
I saw “Oasis: Supersonic” at my local art-house theater here in Cincinnati last night, when the movie was shown in theaters across the country for a one-night-only showing. The theater here was PACKED, somewhat to my surprise. I guess there is a pent-up demand (nostalgia?) for the good ol’ days of the 90s Britpop. Much of the crowd roared with delight at the funny bits, and seemed completely into the movie (as was I). “Oasis: Supersonic” is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Documents A Latter-Day Beatle Mania Like Popularity With Warts
Oasis is probably the post-Beatles band that captured a piece of that band’s impressive rise thirty years on. It was a long time since The Fab Four had done it, and to see an impressive degree of that mania in a latter-day setting was, perhaps, unbelievable in that it was generally accepted it would never happen again. Though history will downplay it today for a run of almost five years it was like the craziness of 1964 all over again. Only this time not just the era was different. The band itself was like a battlefield sewn with landmines. The Beatles, mostly, made peace offerings among themselves allowing more greatness to spawn even as they, wisely, quit touring. So what caused Oasis to truncate their massive popularity? Supersonic gives that insight. Unlike The Beatles, whose settled on democracy worked, with Oasis something explosive was always brewing. It began and ended with Noel being the creative leader and Liam being the mercurial equal that wasn’t really equal at all within the band – even as he was more loved by many fans. Something that only competitive blood brothers are saddled with. Add more anger, bad drugs, and recklessness to the Gallagher brothers and it seems a wonder the band achieved what it did. This is a warts and all look into their wild ride. It could have shown more shed blood, but the viewer gets it quite well with the chaos shown here. As of 2016 that chaos matters less and like Noel says the music is still here. That doesn’t mean you don’t pine for what could have been if a massive dose of maturity just couldn’t have plopped itself down. But, you get a glimpse of why that was never really what Oasis ran on. It ran on borrowed time and in it’s short time it conquered the world musically and left a lot to still enjoy. Like so much great music it was an alchemy of a certain space and time which could only exist for a finite period. This is a pretty entertaining, though often uneasy, window into that time. It’s very likely to be a protracted time for any other band to get a window into Beatle Mania (i.e. mania, not importance), so watch this in a bit of amazement as it may never happen in this century, or ???
