Oasis: Chasing the sun 1993 - 1997
16 Apr 2014
This is the first exhibition dedicated to the band and is definitely worth a visit. There's a display of memorabilia, awards, programs, guitars and unique artefacts including Liams white parka worn at Glastonbury. The rooms are full of beautiful rare photographs and also showcases short film clips of music videos and behind the scenes footage.
The exhibition allows us to come together and explore the early years of Oasis, celebrating their success and understanding the effect they had on the music industry during the 90's. The buzz around the band at this time could not be contained and continues to live on today through their music and style. It's no surprise that Oasis are still prominent within the music scene and will continue to influence musicians for generations to come.
The highlight has to be the re-creation of guitarist Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs' house which features as the art work for the definitely maybe album cover. Whether you chose to sit with the guitar, stand or lay it makes for a great photograph which is unique and special. In the short time your there its enables you to almost re-live the 90's and completely immerse yourself in everything Oasis. This a great exhibition which leaves you wanting to dig out your old vinyl's, bucket hat and sing.
It's free to get in and finishes on Tuesday 22nd April so if you fancy a glimpse at some unseen artwork or just to have your picture taken in Boneheads house, definitely pay this a visit.
