An outtake picture from the shoot for the sleeve of Oasis’ 1995 Number One single ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’. "Noel thought this sentiment would make an interesting idea for a cover and so suggested we had the band’s equipment covered in thousands of red, white and blue carnations, the colours of the Union Jack," explains photographer Michael Spencer Jones.

This photograph was used for the sleeve of the band’s 1995 single ‘Wonderwall’.

‘Roll With It’, the second single taken from Oasis’ second album ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’ saw the band don duffelcoats on "a very hot summer’s day". "It was intended as a visual pun," confirms its photographer Michael Spencer Jones.
This is the iconic cover for Oasis’ 1994 debut album ‘Definitely Maybe’. "By this point in time it had become clear to me that this record was going to book its place in music history," says its photographer Michael Spencer Jones.
