Oasis have been at the helm of the world's music scene for over ten years, and now comes the first ever Oasis retrospective which will draw together the years of multi platinum albums, Number One singles and, unique to Oasis, instantly familiar B-sides into one 18 track double album entitled 'Stop The Clocks'. Furthermore, this collection has been chosen by the band themselves – the songs they believe encapsulate their remarkable career to date.
Bestriding the music world since the release of debut single, 'Supersonic' in 1994 to the current day whilst claiming a host of records for their own, Oasis are widely regarded as the defining rock n roll band of the last decade. 'Stop The Clocks' includes the definitive "greatest B-side ever", 'Acquiesce', evoking memories of the 'White Room' performance that so many regard as Oasis' greatest music television moment. Also present is 'Half The World Away', another B side that became instantly recognisable to all in the UK for its use as the theme music of TV's 'The Royle Family'.
Then come the singles, a stream of contemporary classics starting with 'Supersonic' and moving on to anthems such as 'Wonderwall', as well as more recent moments such as 'The Importance of Being Idle'. These songs explain in an instant why Oasis remain cover stars worldwide as well as being continuously name checked by contemporary bands as their greatest influence.
Having spent 10 months on the road in support of the 2 million selling 'Don't Believe The Truth', 'Stop The Clocks' is released as Oasis take a well earned sabbatical prior to starting work on new material, destined for similar levels of success in the future. As such, this is not a full stop, but merely a time out; a dream set list, and a chance for the world to review the immense contribution that Oasis have made and continue to make to rock 'n' roll.
