MeanMonobrowHypeMachinefilter: I'm looking for a list of bands that have been hyped or dissed by Oasis. I know they're hyping Secret Machines right now, and have done the same for The Soundtrack Of Our Lives in the past. Quotes from Liam or Noel are very welcome.
Video from "120 Minutes" circa 1991? An irish band I believe, video was shot in black and white, and the one scene that really stands out is that there are a group of guys singing around a fire with a horse galloping in the background. [more inside]
