Contrary to Noel’s claims, Oasis didn’t lose it down the drug dealer’s living room. They lost it once they’d got the tanker of gak back to the studio and spunked it up the wall on 10-minute ‘I Am The Walrus’ pastiches, Bowie-raping plodathons and getting Johnny Depp in to play the carrots (or whatever).

Perhaps, to give listeners the full ‘Be Here Now’ experience, they thought that if they made every song excruciatingly long the CD would spin slow enough to snort lines off as it played. Liam loved it, apparently, but in Noel’s own words, this was “the sound of a bunch of blokes on coke, in the studio, not giving a fuck…”
