For those who clutch their first-issue copies of “Definitely Maybe” and proudly sing “Don’t Look Back In Anger” during karaoke, there’s a new film just for you. The documentary “Supersonic” presents the story of Oasis, the beloved but famously erratic British pop duo, helmed by brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher, as they ascend to Rock and Roll royalty and culminate their collaboration in a hostile, much publicized break-up in 2009, when the duo split in the middle of a tour. Watch it below.
The film’s narration was compiled from separate interviews with each Gallagher on their experience going from two unknown “head-cases” with guitars to the music giants we know and love. Their journey includes plenty of debauchery, fan mania, and most of all, a peek into their epic, lasting impact on Britpop, the British subgenre that swept the globe in the mid-90s.
Produced by Asif Kapadia and James Gay-Rees, the Oscar-winning minds behind the music doc “Amy,” and directed by Mat Whitecross (“The Road To Guantanamo”), “Supersonic” will premiere at Festival No. 6 in Wales this weekend. To add to the excitement, there are rumors of a possible fraternal reunion at the screening, the first time the brothers would be on stage together since their 2009 split.
Looks like at least one Gallagher will be at the premiere…
