There was once a time when Oasis would put out a single every 3 months, a classic track backed with great B-sides, sometimes even better than its A-side. Who can forget the track listing of Cigarettes And Alcohol? Listen up, Fade Away and I Am The Walrus, you just wouldn’t dream of that happening today, not least with Oasis. 1994-1997 was a period when Noel Gallagher had the world in his hands. Anthem after anthem, there seemed to be no stopping him. You couldn’t avoid Oasis even if you tried, “What’s a Wonderwall anyway?” Fran Healy sang on Travis’ single ‘Writing To Reach You‘. Their songs had become part of the fabric in our society. As the title of their new single’s compilation rightfully suggests, Time Flies, and here we are celebrating their singles catalogue with a compilation that feels like the true marking of the end for Oasis.
Rock band Pendulum are on top of this week’s Album chart, with their new album ‘Immersion‘, while there are also new entries for hit TV show Glee (#3) and songwriter Katie Melua (#4). Singer Michael Buble re-enters the top 10, climbing seventeen places to no.2. Last week’s no.1, the re-issued ‘Exile On Main St.‘, is this week’s no.5. Elsewhere, folk-rockers Mumford & Sons are back in the top 20, with their debut album ‘Sigh No More‘ climbing three places to #20.
In the Singles chart, Dizzee Rascal has scored another UK no.1 with his new track ‘Dirtee Disco‘.
