Day 189: Whatever, Oasis

I must confess I only half like Oasis, however, given I’m currently sharing Manchester bands and groups whose members are local to me, it can’t get much closer than Oasis who were born and bread in Burnage, the suburb of Manchester where I now live.

Sadly Noel and Liam Gallagher are not particularly functional people and have now been locked in an undying family feud which I assume continues to this day. This song is a nicely arranged Oasis classic but the lyrics perhaps get to the heart of all their relational dysfunction: the lie that you can do what you bloody well like independent of others and its consequences (reminds me of Brexit a little). True to form, Noel Gallagher refuses to wear a mask during the Covid-19 pandemic – “whatever”, I guess ????.
