"We looked at the first Beatles album cover and we just said wow!" Noel indicated about the inspiration for the floating head Oasis album cover design.



The Bands first album was not a critical success, however it did sell well over 47 copies and went on to win the Rolling Stone 1963 "Best New Band That We're All Ignoring" award.


A fairly murky period of squabbling and cockiness followed, during which Noel and Ringo traded in their instruments and opened a quicky mart. It was called "NoGo" and went bankrupt one hour after it opened. Liam spent the next three years trying to find a guitar pick he dropped.


1963 MAY Liam gets an eyebrow transplant.
1963 JUNE Paul calls Ringo a jerk.
1966 SEPTEMBER Noel finds the pick.
1966 OCTOBER Band finally begins new album.

(3.2 sec.)

Don't Throw Back That Anchor
(4.7 sec.)


During the recording sessions for Morning Glory Road Paul and Liam snuck up on Noel and gave him a wedgie.



The Bands second album was not a critical success either. Snapple Records immediately dumped the band in favor of the Whistling Aardvarks and had the groups instruments bronzed so they couldn't play them anymore.


Another murky period of squabbling and cockiness followed, during which Bonehead and Noel got together and recorded a solo album titled, "We Hate Liam." The album sold 1 copy which is currently being used by Liam as a serving tray.


1968 JANUARY Liam gets a personality transplant.
1969 JUNE Noel buys a red pickup.
1971 JULY Alan composes the soundtrack for Porky's IV.
1971 DECEMBER The band ignores a court order and begins their next album.

"I drew my inspiration from the Mona Lisa and Van Gogh's Starry Night" says Noel about his 1972 design for the cover of Buy This Now.






The Bands third album was such an utter failure that Noel himself was quoted as saying "We should probably be ice-cream salesmen." Liam and Alan shacked up with an elderly couple from South Wales and have recently purchased a small fan. Bonehead is still at large.
