Still have love for Be Here Now. Queued up to buy it over 12 years ago. Was mad for it then. Love this and still diggin’ the video.
Not so keen on this one. Think this tune was over-cooked due to ‘indulgences’ both work and ‘social’. Great tune buried underneath it all though. Thing is fuckin seven minutes long!! Steady on boys and clock it in at four or five minutes max. I’d love Noel G to remix this record. A kind of Let It Be….Naked (hate that title!) Give some of the songs on that record their due.
Another bleedin seven minute tune here! Don’t do drugs kids! Workin in the studio and the nose candy don’t mix. Still though, another fuckin’ tune and a half here. This one might just justify the length. More so anyhow than All Around…. Love the video, Liam’s vocal and just the sheer attitude. This is when they were on top of the world. And Noel’s cheeky “fuck” muffled out just enough for the BBC and other stations not to notice – and it went to Number 1.
Think this was the third or fourth live performance of this tune. I heard them play it live for the first time in Cork about a week or so earlier. 15-years-old, necking alcopops on the way down on the train from Dublin. Magic. Prodigy and Bootleg Beatles supported.
