The track, which has never been fully recorded and originally appeared in a demo version on Oasis’ 1997 UK number one single ‘D’You Know What I Mean?‘, was aired late on in the War Child benefit gig, with Gallagher admitting he had ‘not even heard it’ since it was roughly laid down 15 years ago.
The acoustic gig was heavy on past Oasis songs, with live regulars such as ‘Talk Tonight‘, ‘Half The World Away‘ and ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger‘ all included, while another early b-side – 1994′s ‘D’Yer Wanna Be a Spaceman?‘ – was also a part of the set.
Before a rendition of ‘Wonderwall‘, Gallagher made a reference to his younger brother Liam’s band Beady Eye who performed the Noel-written favourite at the London Olympics’ closing ceremony last Sunday, describing them as ‘Stratford’s finest Oasis tribute band’.
