The band that caused so much controversy in the late nineties, Oasis. The band who modeled their styles after the Beatles, and subsequently who Harry Potter modeled himself after, are resurfacing as of late. Of course, the brothers are no longer performing together – their egos are too big to co-exist, and apparently echoes of their past egos are too much for the higher-ups at Disney.
As per Fatherly, he new Disney+ documentary “If These Walls Could Sing” charts the entire history of Abbey Road studios, UK, from The Beatles to Shirley Bassey to John Williams recording Star Wars scores, and everything in between. The documentary is hosted by Paul McCartney’s daughter, Mary McCartney. It is described as being – a brilliantly rich and unmissable documentary.
For music fans of 1990s rock, there is contradictory trivia embedded into the documentary. When British band, Oasis recorded their divisive 1997 album “Be Here Now”, it turns out, they were kicked out of Abbey Road Studios for partying.
The documentary presents two interviews, one from Oasis’ older brother Noel Gallagher, and another from younger brother, Liam. According to Noel, “In ‘97 we were a bit boisterous and we were asked to leave.” But according to Liam, “There was talk of us getting kicked out, but that never happened, I don’t think.” There you go. Two conflicting statements. Who is telling the truth, or rather, who remembers the truth better than the other?
The only thing the famously feuding brothers seem to agree on is that at some point during the Abbey Road recording studios of “Be Here Now“, the band played every Beatles album back-to-back late at night.
“The reason we got asked to leave, was…all the lights were off, and we played all the Beatles albums back-to-back and excruciating volumes,” Noel says. “And I think one of the things got blown up.” Liam insists that while this extreme Beatles listening party did happen, the band was emphatically NOT kicked out. “Whoever come in here and smash things up, needs smashing up themselves,” Liam Gallagher says.
Feuding at its best.
