Love to hate them. Hate to love them. No matter what your point of view is when talking about Oasis and the Gallagher brothers, one thing is for sure: they were (and still are to some people) one of the best English rock bands of all time. It broke our hearts when back in August 2009, Noel Gallagher announced his departure. The band split sooner after, making Oasis just a great memory in our Ipods.
Even though there is still little hope we will see Liam and Noel singing together again anytime soon, Oasis fans do have something to rejoice about this year: the release of Supersonic, the upcoming documentary about the Mancunian band. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Mat Whitecross, the film transports us back to the great Oasis years, starting with the formation of the band in 1991 and ending with their record breaking concert at Knebworth House in Knebworth, England on August 10, 1996.
“The love and the vibe and the passion and the rage and the joy that are coming from the crowd, if anything, that’s what Oasis was.”
“Oasis was definitely like a fucking Ferrari, great to look at, great to drive and it will fucking spin out of control every now and again when you go too fast. I loved every minute of it.”
The film, taking the name of their 1994 hit and debut single Supersonic, will feature never before-seen footage and interviews from the band, following the moment Liam and Noel decided to make music together and became a worldwide rock n’ roll sensation. Just a few weeks ago, Liam Gallagher, seeing the film already, had a little something to say about it:

The two-minute trailer is just a trip back to memory lane, where the young Gallagher brothers just cared about one thing: making great music. Supersonic will be released in the UK and Ireland on October 2, making it’s general premier on October 14 and release on DVD/Blu-ray on October 31.
