#OasisExhibition Manchester

#OasisExhibition

Location: Old Granada Studios, Quay Street, Manchester

Being from Greater Manchester, it may not come as a big surprise to know that I am a huge Oasis fan. When they soared to fame in the 90's, I was growing up hearing their songs on the radio in the car every Saturday. Then, as a teenager when I began to attend house parties, you could always guarantee someone would stick on Wonderwall and everyone would drunkenly embrace, shouting the lyrics down your ear towards the end of the night. Oasis have shaped a generation and even the behaviour of a city, so I was pretty excited and intrigued as I headed down to Old Granada Studios to check out photography and videos plus memorabilia of the infamous rock band that formed a huge part of my adolescence.

The exhibition was filled with poignant photography of the band, showing their unique sense of fashion and subtly marking their milestones. There were also two different rooms showing films, which depicted snippets of music video and the day to day life of Oasis, as well as interviews shot on their rise to fame, and years after reflecting on their successes and how it all came together. I loved looking at all of the photos and watching the video footage, the whole building was filled with a sense of strong nostalgia and it took me back to being a kid again. There was also a section to recreate your own Definitely, Maybe album cover, and little extras to look at such as their iconic 90's labels and their impressive trophy case of awards.
