oasis2In the 90s, while everyone in Manchester was still dancing to the sound of the best DJs in the world at the Haçienda, something unexpected happened. Anthemic stadium rock made its return, with the rise of the biggest band that ever came out of Manchester: Oasis. In this final part of the Mancunian Way, Mark Radcliffe nostalgically chats with Noel Gallagher about the early days of Oasis and tells the story of other bands that kept guitar-based music evolving in the rest of the 90s, such as The Doves, Badly Drawn Boy and Elbow.
