Label: Not On Label (Oasis ) - KNB 01/02 • Format: 2x, CD Unofficial Release • Country: Japan • Genre: Rock • Style: Brit Pop, Indie Rock
Oasis' management company, Ignition, were aware of the dangers of overexposure, and before release sought to control media access to the album. The campaign included limiting pre-release radio airplay and forcing journalists to sign gag orders. The tactics alienated the press and many industry personnel connected with the band, and fueled large-scale speculation and publicity within the British music scene.
On the first day of release, Be Here Now sold overcopies, selling faster than their previous two albums, becoming the fastest-selling album in British chart history, while initial reviews were overwhelmingly positive. It was the biggest selling album of in the UK, with 1.
By mid, Oasis were widely considered, according to guitarist Noel Gallagher"the biggest band in the world During their last stay on the island, Noel wrote the majority of the songs that would make up Be Here Now. Eventually, he disciplined himself to a routine of songwriting where he would go "into this room in the morning, come out for lunch, go back in, come out for dinner, go back in, then go to bed.
In AugustOasis performed two concerts before crowds ofat Knebworth HouseHertfordshire; more than 2, fans had applied for tickets, meaning the possibility of 20 sold-out nights. Four days later, Liam declined to participate in the first leg of an American tour, complaining that he needed to buy a house with his then-girlfriend Patsy Kensit. He rejoined the band a few days after for a key concert at the MTV Video Music Awards in New York, but intentionally sang off-key and spat beer and saliva during the performance.
Amongst much internal bickering, the tour continued to Charlotte, North Carolinawhere Noel finally lost his patience with Liam and announced he was leaving the band. He said later: "If the truth be known, I didn't want to be there anyway. I wasn't prepared to be in the band if people were being like that to each other. With an album's worth of songs already demoed, the Gallaghers felt that they should record as soon as possible.
Their manager, Marcus Russell, said in that "in retrospect, we went in the studio too quickly. The smart move would have been to take the rest of the year off. But at the time it seemed like the right thing to do. If you're a band and you've got a dozen songs you think are great, why not go and do it.
InNoel agreed that the band should have separated for a year or two instead of going into the studio. It would have been a much different album: happy probably. So on we went. A media frenzy ensued, and the band's management made the decision to move to a studio less readily accessible to paparazzi.
Sun showbiz editor Dominic Mohan recalled: "We had quite a few Oasis contacts on the payroll. I don't know whether any were drug dealers, but there was always a few dodgy characters about. Oasis's official photographer Jill Furmanovsky felt the media's focus, and was preyed upon by tabloid journalists living in the flat upstairs from her: "They thought I had the band hiding in my flat. According to Johnny Hopkins, the publicist My Big Mouth - Oasis - The Historical Performance In Knebworth (New Edition) Oasis's label Creation Records"People were being edged out of the circle around Oasis.
People who knew them before they were famous rather than because they were famous. Though they reconvened with more energy, the early recordings were compromised by the drug intake of all involved.
Morris recalled that "in the first week, someone tried to score an ounce of weed, but instead got an ounce of cocaine.
Which kind of summed it up. Morris thought that the new material was weak, but when he voiced his opinion to Noel he was cut down: "[So] I just carried on shovelling drugs up my nose. Noel, wanting to make the album as dense and "colossal" feeling as possible, layered multiple guitar tracks on several songs. In many instances he dubbed ten channels with identical guitar parts, in an effort to create a sonic volume.
Owen was out of control, and he was the one in charge of it. The music was just fucking loud. Obviously, the one not in control was the head of the My Big Mouth - Oasis - The Historical Performance In Knebworth (New Edition) company.
As with Oasis' previous two albums, the songs on Be Here Now are generally anthemic. The structures are traditional,  and largely follow the typical verse — chorus — verse — chorus — My Big Mouth - Oasis - The Historical Performance In Knebworth (New Edition) eight — chorus format of guitar-based rock music. Reviewing for Nude as the NewsJonathan Cohen noted that the album is "virtually interchangeable with 's Definitely Maybe or its blockbuster sequel, What's the Story Morning Glory?
A 's " Straight Outta Compton ",  while "Magic Pie" features psychedelically arranged vocal harmonies and a mellotron. According to Noel, "All I did was run my elbows across the keys and Magische Reise - Mary Pope Osborne - Das Magische Baumhaus (Das Ungeheuer Vom Meeresgrund) mad jazz came out and everyone laughed.
The vocal melodies continue Noel's preference for "massed-rank sing-alongs", although Paul Du Noyer concedes that not all are of the "pub-trashing idiot kind" of previous releases. The lyrics were elsewhere described as "[running] the gamut from insightful to insipid",  although Du Noyer admitted that Noel is "[to go by his lyrics] something of a closet philosopher Du Noyer praised Liam's vocal contributions and described his "Northern punk whine" as "the most distinctive individual style of our time.
One Creation employee recalled "a lot of nodding of heads, a lot of slapping of backs. I thought it was too confrontational. McGee's hyperbole alarmed both Oasis and their management company Ignition, and both immediately excluded him from involvement in the release campaign.
Ignition's strategy from that point on centred on an effort to suppress all publicity, and withheld access to both music and information from anybody not directly involved with Sweet And Lovely - David Hazeltine Trio - Alice In Wonderland album's release.
Fearful of the dangers of over-hype and bootlegging, their aim was to present the record as a "regular, everyday collection of tunes. According to Greengrass "We want to keep it low key.
We want to keep control of the whole mad thing. However, the extent that Ignition were willing to go to control access to the album generated more hype than could normally have been expected, and served to alienate members of both the print and broadcast media, as well as most Creation staff members. However, three stations broke the embargo, and Ignition panicked. According to Greengrass: "we'd been in these bloody bunker meetings for six months or something, and our plot was blown. The day after Lamacq previewed the album on his show, he received a phone call from Ignition My Big Mouth - Oasis - The Historical Performance In Knebworth (New Edition) him that he would not be able to preview further tracks because he didn't speak enough over the songs.
Lamacq said, "I had to go on the air the next night and say, 'Sorry, but we're not getting any more tracks. Bocca di Rosa (Roma 2008) - Fabrizio De Andrè* - Effedia Sulla Mia Cattiva Strada had this Oasis camp that was like 'I'm sorry, you're not allowed come into the office between the following hours.
You're not allowed mention the word Oasis. When Hopkins began to circulate cassette copies of the album to the music press If You Ever Believed - Andy Williams - If You Ever Believed few weeks later, he required that each journalist sign a contract containing a clause Ütle Miks?
- Terminaator - Kuld - Ballaadid Aastatest 1987 - 1997 that the cassette recipient, according to Select journalist Mark Perry, "not discuss the album with anyone—including your partner at home. It basically said don't talk to your girlfriend about it when you're at home in bed.
We sit in [Oasis] meetings today and we're like 'It's on the Internet. It's in Camden Market. I think we've learned our lesson. I remember listening to " All Around the World " and laughing—actually quite pleasurably—because it seemed so ridiculous. You just thought: Christ, there is so much coke being done here.
It shows the band standing outside the hotel surrounded by various props; in the centre is a Rolls Royce floating in a swimming pool. Photographer Michael Spencer Johns said the original concept involved shooting each band member in various locations around the world, but when the cost proved prohibitive, the shoot was relocated to Stocks House. It was Alice in Wonderland meets Apocalypse Now. Two props considered were an inflatable globe intended as a homage to the sleeve of Definitely Maybe and the Rolls Royce, suggested by Arthurs.
The release date had been brought forward out of Ignition's fear that import copies of the album from the United States would arrive in Britain before the street date.
It was not until lunch time that sales picked up. By the end of the first day of release, Be Here Now sold overunits and by the end of My Big Mouth - Oasis - The Historical Performance In Knebworth (New Edition) on Saturday that week sales had reached , making it based on first seven days sales, the fastest-selling album Bryan Ferry - Another Time, Another Place British history.
Contemporaneous reviews of Be Here Now were, in John Harris 's words, unanimous with "truly amazing praise". According to Harris, "To find an album that had attracted gushing notices in such profusion, one had to go back thirty years, to the release of Sgt.
Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. When it went on to become, Her Favorite Song - Various - Gerard Ekdoms BBQ Box 2014 the words of Select editor Alexis Petridis"this huge kind of Zeitgeist defining record" the music press was "baffled". By the end ofBe Here Now had sold eight million units worldwide. However, most sales came from the first two weeks of release, and once the album was released to UK radio stations the turnover tapered off.
Buyers realised that the album was not another What's the Story Morning Glory? Savage said that while the album "isn't the great disaster that everybody My Big Mouth - Oasis - The Historical Performance In Knebworth (New Edition)he noted that "[i]t was supposed to be the big, big triumphal record" of the period.
The third Oasis album is a loud, lumbering noise signifying nothing. The Gallagher brothers hold differing opinions about the album. In JulyNoel was describing the production as "bland" and some tracks as "fucking shit".
Look at Phil Collins. In the same documentary, Liam defended the record, and said that "at that time we thought it was fucking great, and I still think it's great. It just wasn't Morning Glory. I don't know what's up with him but it's a top record, man, and I'm proud of it—it's just a little bit Villain - CocoRosie - Tales Of A Grasswidow. All tracks are written by Noel Gallagher.

Noel Gallagher later said that he had expected Blues On The Ceiling - Fred Neil - Little Bit Of Rain be asked to reduce the length of the song by two minutes.

There's no bass to it at all; I don't know what happened to that Needlestick - Welcome To Planet Work all the songs are really long and all the lyrics are shit and for every millisecond Liam is not saying a word, there's a fuckin' guitar riff in there in a Wayne's World stylie".
