Oasis – Fucking in the Bushes (57)

December 16, 2009

Amusingly Triple J used to call it Bonking in the Bushes, like anyone couldn’t hear the title sample in the tune. And of course we all giggled at the sample of the old woman enthusiastically saying “I’m all for it”.

At the start of the decade Blur vs Oasis no longer the question, with Blur easily winning the reinvention stakes. As the decade progressed, it seemed better to consider Coxon vs Albarn, against Liam vs Noel, except it was really Coxon vs himself. Now the decade has ended, both bands are in uncertain, though probably terminal states, with their respective final albums amongst the strongest of their respective career. 1995 seems so long ago…
