Oasis – The Artist
Oasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991. Developed from an earlier group, the Rain, the band originally consisted of Liam Gallagher (lead vocals, tambourine), Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs (guitar), Paul “Guigsy” McGuigan (bass guitar) and Tony McCarroll (drums). Upon returning to Manchester, Liam’s older brother, Noel Gallagher (lead guitar, vocals) joined as a fifth member, which formed the band’s core and settled line-up. During the course of their existence, they had various line-up changes, though the Gallagher brothers remained as the staple members until the group’s demise.
Cigarettes And Alcohol – The Song
‘Cigarettes And Alcohol’ is a song by English rock band Oasis, written by Noel Gallagher. It was released on 10 October 1994 as the fourth single from their debut album Definitely Maybe (1994), and their second to enter the UK top ten in the United Kingdom, peaking at number 7 (three places higher than “Live Forever”), eventually spending 79 weeks on the charts. Whereas the band’s first two singles “Supersonic” and “Shakermaker” had used psychedelic imagery, and the third single “Live Forever” used softer chords and tender lyrics, “Cigarettes & Alcohol” demonstrated the rougher musical attitude that Oasis appeared to be promoting. The song proclaims the inherent appeal of cigarettes, alcohol, and other drugs as a remedy to the banality and seemingly futile nature of working class life. Lines such as “Is it worth the aggravation to find yourself a job when there’s nothing worth working for?” taps into a common sentiment of disenchantment in the 1990s. Predominately sold as a CD single, the 7” vinyl single was released as a numbered limited Edition.
