OUT OF THE BLUE STUDIOS, MANCHESTER, AUTUMN 1991

A cassette of the three tracks recorded at Out of the Blue studios, Manchester
This was the very first studio recording done by Oasis, with three Liam/Bonehead written songs being recorded. Noel, in the band’s first press article in the 22nd October 1991 edition of ‘Uptown’ magazine, claimed that they had the opportunity to record the demos for free as Tony McCarroll was a plasterer by trade, and agreed to work on the walls in the building in exchange for some recording time. McCarroll, in his book ‘Oasis: The Truth – My Life As Oasis’ Drummer’, concurs, saying it was negotiated by Bonehead’s brother Martin, and that Bonehead, Guigs and Tony had done the plastering work. He also infers that this session was done before Noel joined, by mentioning that the later Abraham Moss session was their first as a five-piece.

A tape of this demo session was auctioned on eBay in March 2003.

Alice

Co-written by Liam and Bonehead.

She always comes up smiling
And playing with her hair
She sometimes says I’m lying
She thinks that I don’t care

I know that if I see you
I have to look and smile
I know that if I hear you
I think I’ll run a mile

She sometimes makes me blushing
By saying silly things
She don’t know where she’s going
With all the cheapskate things

You never really spoke to me
You only stand still
From now I think you’ve learned to see
I never really cared
