Oasis: The SOTSOG Sessions (Deluxe Edition) *FLAC*

The Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants Sessions is a collection of demo recordings, b-sides, promo tracks and other rarities from Oasis.

These songs were recorded in Noel’s home studio at Supernova Heights and at Wheeler End Studios with the assistance of Mark Coyle and Paul Stacey between 1998 and early 1999.  All tracks are sung by Noel with the exception of Little James which is sung by Liam.

“The thing about Standing on the Shoulder of Giants is that I had a full year to sit in my 16-track bedroom studio with an engineer friend and make demos, whereas the demo sessions for Be Here Now were finished in two weeks and they were really rough. We didn’t bother about what sounds we were going to use, or the arrangements, or anything. I thought, “We’ll work all that out when we get to the studio.”  This time, however, I had basically done the album twice before it even got to the band. I had written and recorded the songs on a little Walkman, and then I demoed the tracks on ADATs in my bedroom. And we ended up using a lot of stuff from the demos on the actual record because the demos were that good.”Noel Gallagher,, 2000

Noel recording demos at Wheeler End Studios

The Smiths: Live At The Derby Assembly Rooms


The Smiths perform live at the Derby Assembly Rooms on the 6th December 1983. Recorded from the BBC Whistle Test.

This concert is usually misdated as having taken place on the 7th of December. "Back To The Old House" was also on the setlist (before "These Things Take Time") but it seems like it may not have been played. Tickets were free, John Peel announced the ticket giveaway on his show. It was a very wild gig, the crowd was very energetic and constantly shouting requests. The main set ended in chaos.

After shushing the audience, "Pretty Girls Make Graves" was introduced by Morrissey with the words "A little quirk... a little quirk friends... pretty girls make!" During "Reel Around The Fountain" he handed one of the bead necklaces he was wearing to someone in the crowd. He changed a line in "What Difference Does It Make?" to "I think I can rely on me."

At some point during "Miserable Lie" Morrissey was hit in the eye by a flower, dropped his microphone to the floor and left the stage. The band finished the song mostly as an instrumental. Morrissey returned to the stage on time for the ending of "I need advice, I need advice", adding at the end "and so do you!" for the rowdy audience. He remained playful following this, but Johnny Marr later said in an interview that this was his most embarrassing moment. Actually in the 1985 programme for the Meat Is Murder tour, he said this concert was his 'greatest embarrassment'.

Following the latter number, song requests were shouted by fans and Morrissey shushed them again and shouted "No! This!" He changed a few lines in "This Night Has Opened My Eyes" to "this night has opened my eyes and I will never see again", "The dream has gone, the crying is real" and "And I'm never happy and I'm never sad". "Hand In Glove" was introduced by Morrissey with a high pitched shout of "Hand In Glove!!!" During that song someone made it on stage and hugged Morrissey, making him miss a few lines.

It wasn't long into "You've Got Everything Now" before the stage became crowded with fans. Band members disappeared from view and Morrissey could barely sing his lines. He tried as best he could but made strangling noises as he was pulled left and right and tried not to get drowned in a sea of dancing people. The stage got filled with as many fans as was physically possible. It was one of the Smiths' first major stage invasions (including a small child!). The band left stage after the latter number, and after the stage was cleared, they returned for an encore. After "These Things Take Time", Morrissey just shouted "Goodbye! Stay handsome... goodbye..." and that was the end.

This concert was recorded for The Old Grey Whistle Test and first broadcast the following Friday and Saturday. The chaotic performance of "You've Got Everything Now" was moved after "These Things Take Time", making it look like the show ended with the melée. Some later rebroadcasts were shortened to seven songs, leaving out amongst others the near-instrumental "Miserable Lie". (Info taken from
