Sign the Petition for Oasis to Just. Reunite. Already!

It’s legit alright. The ROCKthusiast isn’t one to joke about Oasis.
Petition – Oasis: Just Reunite Already!

It really doesn’t feel like it’s only been ten years since one of the more infamous breakups in music history. Les frères Gallagher were about to headline a festival in France with Oasis when the proverbial camel’s back finally broke. The dustup probably wasn’t any worse than the thousands they’ve had over their lifetimes, but it was obviously enough for primary songwriter Noel to call it quits.

From ever working with a family member again, that is. It didn’t take long for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds to take flight, a more than vanity project which has already produced three UK number ones and hasn’t adversely affected Noel’s reputation as one of his generation’s all-time great lyricists. His best melodies tend to have an edge to them that match his rough-and-tumble roots while harkening back to classic British pop rock of the ’60s and ’70s. Oasis had eight number ones by the way including the Time Flies best-of compilation, but “Whatever”.

Gilles LeBlanc literally fell into “alternative rock” wayyy back at Lollapalooza 1992, where he got caught in his first mosh pit watching some band named Pearl Jam. Since then, he’s spent the better part of his life looking for music to match the liberating rush he felt that day, with a particular chest-beating emphasis on stuff coming out of his native Canada. It took him awhile, but Gilles now writes feverishly about all things that rock (and or roll) through his ROCKthusiast alter ego.
