Drone Publishing is celebrating the release of the 20th anniversary re-mastered editions of Definitely Maybe with a week dedicated to Oasis. The team members of the site are all huge fans of the group with the band appearing at the time when many of the members were developing a passion and interest in music.
Every day this week the site will be looking at a different aspect of Oasis in 1994. The site got their Oasis week underway with a look at the B-sides released by the group in this year. In addition to the tracks featured on the debut record, Oasis could have filled another album with songs of outstanding quality. The song-writing of Noel Gallagher was its peak in 1994 and 1995 with these songs being as loved as big hits from the albums of the group.
The week will continue with a focus on the new 3 CD package released by the group, the artwork of the band in 1994, the live shows and the impact that Oasis has had. Any Oasis fan looking to indulge in some classic nostalgia or anyone looking to find out what all of the fuss is about with respect to Oasis will find that Drone Publishing is the place to be this week.
There may not have been a lot new about the music of Oasis in 1994 but there was something immensely exciting and thrilling about the band. Their live show was packed full of loud guitars, feedback and an intensity that few bands could match. Even critics of the group’s songs couldn’t find fault with the work-ethic and level of playing that Oasis delivered in 1994.
One of the team members at Drone Publishing has also released a book about Oasis, Definitely Maybe and 1994. This was a depressing time for the British music scene and Britain in general. The book examines the cultural state that created the opportunity for Oasis and the early rumblings of the movement that the group would find themselves at the front of in the UK for the next couple of years. The book is available for e-readers and in physical format.
With the release of the 20th anniversary package of Definitely Maybe by Oasis taking place this week, this is the ideal time for fans of the group, old and new, to find out what the fuss was really all about. The Oasis week on Drone Publishing will transport readers back to the time when it felt as though a real change in music and culture was taking place.
