American alternative rock ruled the airwaves in the 1990s until 11 April 1994. Then came Oasis. The band’s debut single Supersonic, released just days after the death of Kurt Cobain, heralded the arrival of a hungry gang of contenders for the title of Biggest Band On Earth.
Rising out of a storm of overdriven guitars was a voice that was both unforgettable and emphatically British; Lennon and Lydon colliding in a lazy sneer that said fuck you to the world. Before long the world would hang on every word. Circa 1994-96 Liam stood toe-to-toe with his heroes and was untouchable.
