An afternoon in London with Augustines and Oasis

19 April 2014. I picked up a couple of things from Twitter that were happening in central London that looked liked fun. The Berwick Street festival in Soho that was celebrating  record stores and vinyl music – part of a nationwide event – and then a photo exhibition in Shoreditch, courtesy of the Londonnewcastle project, of Oasis in their early years: Chasing the Sun 1993-97.

Loved them both!

I turned up in Berwick Street in time to see the mighty Augustines. Rocking out with passion, as ever.

Then up to Shoreditch. Not my patch, as a West London boy. But interesting, overshadowed by the City.

The Oasis exhibition was brilliant. Fantastic photos from the first few years. There was also a recreation of the scene for “Definitely Maybe,” Oasis’s first album. People were queuing up to take their place in that iconic scene. And there were film shots in a big room.

I’m wary of reproducing too many photos of the exhibition, but here’s just one, by the great photographer Jill Furmanovsky.

Here’s one of the Definitely Maybe album cover recreation. The room reproduced with loving care, including guitars. Three lads enjoying it in this shot.

And the punters in the film studio.

A reminder of how good Oasis were.

An interesting art space too. Here’s a view from outside.

Do we love London? Yes we do!

I'm blogging about the things I love outside work: music, sport, culture, London, with some photos to illustrate aspects of our wonderful city. And anything else that I happen to think is worth writing about!

    Not a big Oasis fan but I do like quite a few of their songs. Now, The Augustines – them, I’ll check out.
