#85 -- Alive (8 Track Demo)

Album: Shakermaker (single)

Noel’s come a long way as a songwriter, that’s for sure. This is one of the older songs Oasis has ever released (B-side or otherwise) and sounds appropriately musically immature – almost complimented by the 8 track sampling. I’m not sure what it means, or whether it’s even worth discussing – few tracks really showcase the evolution of Noel’s songwriting before it was really polished. This would certainly be a track not even worth mentioning had they attempted to produce it in the manner to which we’re accustomed and squeeze it into an album, but as it is, it’s a great early portrait of a young band about to explode.
