On This Day In Oasis History...

On September 29th 1994 Oasis played the now infamous gig at the The Whiskey (A Go Go) in Los Angeles, USA. 

In what has been described by the band as a 'fucking shambles' in the documentary Supersonic, every member of Oasis was playing a different song to the other while they were on stage.

Liam said they were all off their heads on crystal meth "We all thought it was coke and were doing big fucking lines of it. The band was up for days."

Following the gig Noel Gallagher quit the band and flew out to San Francisco to spend time with a girl that he’d been seeing.

In his own words: "I don't know what the fuck I thought I was doing. Was I just going to disappear? But Talk Tonight was written about those few days (when he was about to leave the band) and out of that came that great song. It was meant to be. I sat in this girl's flat, probably doing a bit too many fucking drugs and being a bit fucking mad, unbeknownst to me, they (Oasis management) found out where I was. I'd written these new songs - and someone booked a recording session - that was Oasis' fucking cure for everything."

On September 29th 1997 Oasis played the first of two nights at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, England.
