The man who signed the Manchester band raves about new album
McGee signed Oasis to his Creation label after seeing them live at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow in 1993.
Writing on Guardian.co.uk, McGee claimed that ‘Dig Out Your Soul’ showed “a return to the grander ambitions and excess of before” for the band.
“Maybe it is their [Oasis‘] lucky seventh album?” he wrote. “The Beatles and the (Rolling) Stones released ‘Revolver’ and ‘Beggar’s Banquet’ respectively, both were album number seven, and ‘Dig Out Your Soul’ is on a par of with both in terms of classic songwriting.
“Or maybe it was his [Noel Gallagher‘s] musical peer Paul Weller who inspired Noel to turn his back on Britpop and take a more eclectic direction?”
In other Oasis news, the band’s official website oasisinet.com claims that tickets for the group’s Electric Proms show at London‘s Camden Roundhouse on October 26 sold out just 40 seconds after they went onsale today (September 30).
