Oasis's incendiary 1994 debut album Definitely Maybe managed to summarize almost the entire history of post-fifties guitar music from Chuck Berry to My Bloody Valentine in a way that seemed effortless. But this remarkable album was also a social document that came closer to narrating the collective hopes and dreams of a people than any other record of the last quarter century. In a Britain that had just undergone the most damaging period of social upheaval in a century under the Thatcher government, Noel Gallagher ventriloquized slogans of burning communitarian optimism through the mouth of his brother Liam and the playing of the other Oasis 'everymen': Paul McGuigan, Paul Arthurs and Tony McCarroll. On Definitely Maybe, Oasis communicated a timeworn message of idealism and hope against the odds, but one that had special resonance in a society where the widening gap between high and low demanded a newly superhuman kind of leaping. Alex Niven charts the astonishing rise of Oasis in the mid 1990s and celebrates the life-affirming, communal force of songs such as “Live Forever,” “Supersonic,” and “Cigarettes & Alcohol.” In doing so, he seeks to reposition Oasis in relation to their Britpop peers and explore one of the most controversial pop-cultural narratives of the last thirty years.

In the rush to commemorate anniversaries and the forgotten days of our youth, it seems that everything and anything is worthy of recall and acknowledgement. Twenty years on from 1994, there are a range of moments that people can remember as if they took place yesterday. Roberto Baggio's penalty kick may still be in orbit while Loaded magazine has long since bitten the dust but one thing stands out bigger and stronger than the rest of the memories of the years combined.1994 was the year Oasis burst into public view and their debut album 'Definitely Maybe' is still lauded as one of the greatest debut albums, and indeed guitar albums, of all time. The stories of the battling brothers from Burnage in Manchester may have grabbed the headlines but it was the songs and tunes that grabbed the hearts and minds of the fans who followed on behind the Gallaghers and the rest of the group.Andy Reilly was just one the millions who were swept up in the crescendo of Oasis becoming the biggest band in Britain. This book is the story of where we were at the start of the ride that would take on us further ups and downs either side of the millennium. The Oasis story was a long one, and one that may not have reached its natural conclusion, but 1994 was the year that it all started coming together as they grabbed hold of new followers on a daily basis.1993 saw unemployment figures in the UK crash through the 3 million barrier and many were of the opinion that it wasn't worth the aggravation to find a job when there was nothing worth working for. The UK chart music scene was as soul-destroying as the job market. The book looks at how Oasis found themselves in the right place at the right time, exactly who they were railing against, and what the band meant to their adoring public. In the story of Oasis, 1994 deserves to be told in its own right.

Why do we feel justified in using adjectives such as romantic, erotic, heroic, melancholic, and a hundred others when speaking about music? How do we locate these meanings within particular musical styles? These are questions that have occupied Derek Scott's thoughts and driven his critical musicological research for many years. In this selection of essays, dating from 1995-2010, he returns time and again to examining how conventions of representation arise and how they become established. Among the themes of the collection are social class, ideology, national identity, imperialism, Orientalism, race, the sacred and profane, modernity and postmodernity, and the vexed relationship of art and entertainment. A wide variety of musical styles is discussed, ranging from jazz and popular song to the symphonic repertoire and opera.

The debut novel of B J Warrington sees diarist Sam Simkin in trouble. He has been dumped by the love of his life and thinks this reason enough to commit suicide. As he researches the things that flit above his horizon - almost anything, from the reproductive cycle of the seahorse to Robert Browning's poem Porphyria' Lover to how deaf people think and dream ... and lots lots more - he also becomes aware that he is ill and that his problems aren't necessarily his own fault. We follow Sam through his diary over the course of a year of his life. He reveals himself gradually as he socialises, works, goes to college and spends time reflecting in his room. But, is the person who writes the entries the same person you would expect to see if you actually met him? Anyone who has ever felt a little different, a little odd, a little bit like they don't quite fit, in fact anyone who has ever asked themselves "why?" should read this book.

Closer emerged as one of the most successful plays of the 1990s, and one with a continuing afterlife through the academy award nominated film adaptation in 2004. Although the work of dramatists such as Sarah Kane and Mark Ravenhill initially attracted the most critical and academic attention, Patrick Marber's Closer had long West End and Broadway runs. The play has since gone on to repeat this success in over 30 other countries.

THE ART OF NOISE offers an unprecedented collection of insightful, of-the-moment conversations with twenty-seven great British songwriters and composers. They discuss everything from their individual approaches to writing, to the inspiration behind their most successful songs, to the techniques and methods they have independently developed to foster their creativity. Contributors include: Sting * Ray Davies * Robin Gibb * Jimmy Page * Joan Armatrading * Noel Gallagher * Lily Allen * Annie Lennox * Damon Albarn * Noel Gallagher * Laura Marling * Paul Weller * Johnny Marr * and many more Musician-turned-author Daniel Rachel approaches each interview with an impressive depth of understanding—of the practice of songwriting, but also of each musician's catalog. The result is a collection of conversations that's probing, informed, and altogether entertaining—what contributor Noel Gallagher called "without doubt the finest book I've ever read about songwriters and the songs they write." The collected experience of these songwriters makes this book the essential word of songwriting—as spoken by the songwriters themselves.

At a time when fundamentalism is on the rise, traditional religions are in decline and postmodernity has challenged any system that claims to be all-defining, young people have left their traditional places of worship and set up their own, in clubs, at festivals and within music culture. Pop Cults investigates the ways in which popular music and its surrounding culture have become a primary site for the location of meaning, belief and identity. It provides an introduction to the history of the interactions of vernacular music and religion, and the role of music in religious culture. Rupert Till explores the cults of heavy metal, pop stars, club culture and virtual popular music worlds, investigating the sex, drug, local and death cults of the sacred popular, and their relationships with traditional religions. He concludes by discussing how and why popular music cultures have taken on many of the roles of traditional religions in contemporary society.
