Be Here Now (1997): 25 years of Oasis' third album
This week's episode is brief as we look back on the third Oasis album from the pubs of South Shields. The background noise was a factor we hadn't taken into account, but we hope you'll look past that as we think about GCSE results, one of the town's greatest shops and some Parent Network updates. There's also music from former World of Twist man Gordon King's Quatermass III band. Listen to more here quatermass 3: Musichttps://quatermass3.bandcamp.com
