Oasis’ early demos often had a dark, grungy tinge to them with a heavy focus on Guigsy’s bass lines. They’ve been fairly widely traded over the years from Napster to eBay but if you’re unfamiliar with these lost tracks, check this out. Some kind soul uploaded an entire “album” of early Oasis tracks to YouTube.
I bought a bootleg copy of an Oasis demo compilation somewhere around age 13. I was totally in love with songs like “Take Me,” “See the Sun” and “Colour My Life.” I haven’t listened to most of these demos in years so I’m enjoying this trip down memory lane.
