Today Is Gonna Be the Day: Oasis Catalogue Arrives On Rdio

DefinitelyMaybeOasis2PR200712

2014 is already looking to be an excellent year for music. It is the 20th anniversary of Oasis’ seminal debut album “Definitely Maybe” and to kick-off the celebration the band is now making their entire catalogue available for streaming on Rdio. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the news.

You’ve surely kept up with the ongoing antics of brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher in the press, and now you can listen (or re-listen) to every record they’ve released — including eight (yes eight!) UK #1 albums and eight #1 singles.

As leaders in the early 90’s post-grunge Britpop phenomenon — which included archrivals Blur — Oasis’ guitar-driven sound showcases clear inspiration from original British Invasion acts like the Kinks, David Bowie, and the Beatles while layering on the more modern influences of fellow Mancunian bands like The Smiths, Happy Mondays, and the Stone Roses.

One listen to Oasis reminds you why their music has made them one of the most influential and successful UK bands of all time. And now you can play their stellar catalogue right here on Rdio. The only thing left to do is wonder about those 20th Anniversary Reunion Tour rumours.

Listen to the band’s breakout albums Definitely Maybe and [What’s the Story] Morning Glory, or browse through the complete Oasis collection here.

And — as a tribute to the band’s enduring influence and to salute his Gallagher mates, Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie has shared this playlist of favourite Oasis tracks to take you through the Oasis journey, from Rock ‘N’ Roll Star to the Masterplan:
