Supersonic was the first single released by the band helmed by brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher back in 1994. The single paved the way for Oasis to become a world-renowned super group playing sold out gigs across the globe including a gig in 1996 at Knebworth which sold to a quarter of a millions fans over 2 nights leaving many of the 2.6 million who applied for tickets disappointed. The documentary will cover their debut album release ‘Definitely Maybe’ which is still the fastest selling debut of all-time.
As a huge fan of Oasis (I got to see them play Wembley Stadium – sadly not Knebworth), this is fantastic news as well as the fact that our favourite Documentary (and now academy award winning) Director / Producer Asif Kapadia (Senna / Amy) will be executive producing this particular project alongside his producing partner Academy Award winner James Gay Rees. Matt Cross helms the documentary which will be with us in October this year.
Supersonic documents the bands journey from the moment when Noel Gallagher joined his brother Liam’s band – the two boys who shared a bedroom growing up, were now sharing a stage.
The announcement was made at Cannes Film Festival which is where the above photo was taken.
“The love and the vibe and the passion and the rage and the joy that are coming from the crowd, if anything, that’s what Oasis was.”
“Oasis was definitely like a fucking Ferrari, great to look at, great to drive and it will fucking spin out of control every now and again when you go too fast. I loved every minute of it.”
