Last November, we reported that an Oasis documentary was in the works thanks to Award-winning filmmaker Mat Whitecross and Academy Award-winning producer James Gay Rees, AMY, alongside Fiona Neilson, Simon Halfon, and Academy Award-winning executive producer Asif Kapadia. Perfectly titled, Supersonic, from the release of Definitely Maybe (which at that moment became the fastest-selling debut of all time – it was then less than two years before they played their historic shows at Knebworth Park) documents the band’s journey from the moment when Noel Gallagher joined his brother Liam’s band – the two boys who shared a bedroom growing up, were now sharing a stage. The filmmakers have been given unprecedented access to the band allowing a rare and candid insight into their world along with never before seen archive material. Lorton Distribution will be releasing the film in the UK this October.
The band’s 1994 groundbreaking debut single, Supersonic, became an acclaimed rock ’n’ roll anthem while the documentary sums up the phenomenal journey. The documentary features interviews with both the Gallagher’s as well as behind-the-scenes footage of the band and the crew.
“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.”
