Tonight I’m Gonna Blog Like It’s 1994

No new reviews yet this week. Although keep tuned since I just listend to the best album of the year. Find out what it is next week on Soap…I mean later this week on this blog.

(As Long As They’ve Got) Cigarettes In Hell
Let’s All Make Believe
(I Got) The Fever
Idler’s Dream
Full On
I’ve never been a huge Oasis fan but I thought Don’t Believe The Truth was a spectacular record, and I’m really looking forward to Dig Out Your Soul and plan on buying it this week. However, I got a friend who loves Oasis. Scractht that, that’s an understatement. To say she loves Oasis is like saying that I love collecting records and that I like saying “fuck.” Every band should be as lucky to have a fan as good as her. She has all of the band’s singles, collects every magazine they appear in, and has DVDs that she can’t even play since they’re region 2 and she lives in Ohio. Hardcore. Right now life is shitting on her, so this post is for her. I wanted to post some Oasis songs she didn’t have, but then I realized that I got all my Oasis songs from her, so that would be a bit impossible. Anyways, these are my favorite Oasis B-sides that didn’t appear on The Masterplan (the group’s B-side collection). The brilliant “(As Long As They Got) Cigarettes In Hell” is from the “Go Let It Out” single, as is the equally amazing “Let’s All Make Believe”; “(I Got) The Fever” is from “Stand By Me” single; Idler’s Dream is the B-side to “The Hindu Times; and “Full On” was snatched from the single for “Sunday Morning Call.”

The Smashing Pumpkins
You’re All I’ve Got Tonight
Clones (We’re All)
A Night Like This
Destination Unknown
In the 90s I was a huge Smashing Pumpkins fan and only a moderate Oasis fan. Funny how things change. While I’m looking forward to hearing Oasis’ new album, every time I hear that The Smashing Pumpkins have something new coming out I cringe in anticipated dread. Of course, that group that Billy is whoring out right now is nothing more than a cover band so calling them “The Smashing Pumpkins” is a bit of a joke. Still, It’s sad…I miss D’Arcy. Sigh. Remember better days with these covers that originally appeared on the “Bullet With Butterfly Wings” single on The Aeroplane Flys High box set.

    man, bs…Zeitgeist is a solid effort from SP! seriously, give it a chance, it’s actually pretty good! (well, about 80% of it is anyway)

    I’ve loved Oasis since Definitely Maybe. There was a stagnant period when they were making boring albums but Don’t Believe the Truth was an excellent return to form. I also buy their singles and have a bunch of Brit mags from back in the day. They definitely inspired love. Thanks for the tracks!

    I loved the Pumpkins too. Siamese Dream and MCIS are like sacred objects to me. I cringe resent everything Billy does these days because he’s sullying the memory. 🙁 Not his fault, he doesn’t know how to be anything else.
