Its no secret that I'm not an Oasis fan, but I was listening to the 'Underground Garage' today on my way to work and the DJ (not sure who it was) said something in the vain of ,,,,"and you heard from the biggest band from Britain that wasn't the Beatles or the Stones,,,Oasis. As big as they were over there, it didn't translate over here". I always said they weren't that popular over here and people replied to me like I was an alien. I'll never forget a few friends telling me how great they were and if you liked the Beatles, you were sure to like Oasis, so I bought 'Definitely Maybe' and 'Whats the Story Morning Glory' and I've never been so disappointed in 2 albums, as I was with those ones.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, maybe I underestimated how big they were across the pond.
