As Gallagher claimed on many occasions, he’d been strategising a debut album, in whatever form, since his teenage years. With such apparent forethought, it’s no wonder that when Definitely Maybe appeared in August, 1994 it redrew the parameters of indie rock, filling a void left by The Stone Roses and gave Alan McGee’s Creation Records a world-class act.</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.uncut.co.uk/sites/default/files/imagecache/blog/2014/05/oasis220514w.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-blog imagecache-default imagecache-blog_default" width="630" height="300" /> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.uncut.co.uk/blog/the-view-from-here/oasis-definitely-maybe-20-years-on" target="_blank">read more</a></p> The View From Here Fri, 23 May 2014 09:00:00 +0000 Michael Bonner 20258 at http://www.uncut.co.uk "An incredible assortment of freaks": The making of Dennis Hopper's The Last Movie http://www.uncut.co.uk/blog/the-view-from-here/an-incredible-assortment-of-freaks-the-making-of-dennis-hoppers-the-last-mov <p><strong>Dennis Hopper would have been 78 tomorrow (May 17).

In his role as <strong>Blur</strong> frontman, he consistently favoured Fred Perry tops and oxblood Doc Martens. As a member of Gorillaz, he even went as far as to adopt an entirely different persona – the spiky-haired animated singer 2D (real name: Stuart Tusspot). For The Good, The Bad And The Queen, he favoured a Two Tone-style dark suit and a low top hat, and for his reimagining of the life of Elizabethan mystic John Dee, he went as far as to grow a beard. Tonight, he arrives on stage wearing a simple suit and tie and a pair of desert boots.</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.uncut.co.uk/sites/default/files/imagecache/blog/2014/05/damonalbarn020514w.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-blog imagecache-default imagecache-blog_default" width="630" height="300" /> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.uncut.co.uk/blog/the-view-from-here/damon-albarn-great-hall-queen-mary-university-london-may-1-2014" target="_blank">read more</a></p> The View From Here Fri, 02 May 2014 12:37:02 +0000 Michael Bonner 20170 at http://www.uncut.co.uk Why Blue Ruin is one of the best films of the year... http://www.uncut.co.uk/blog/the-view-from-here/why-blue-ruin-is-one-of-the-best-films-of-the-year <p>There is something to be said for the shoe-string budget movie.
