This week, demos from pre-Definitely Maybe Oasis surfaced online thanks to the efforts of a fan site that purchased recordings made at the Real Peoples Studio in Liverpool and The Broadwalk in Manchester between 1992 and 1993. Perhaps of most interest to me is the early version of “Setting Sun” sung by Liam — which later became a Noel guest track on The Chemical Brothers’ Dig Your Own Hole:

Another fascinating track is a sloppy take of “Columbia” which became one of Definitely Maybe’s best loved anthems:

And then there’s deep cut “Lock All The Doors” which hints at the signature Britpop sound we’ve all come to love (or hate, as it were):
