Oasis tribute band at war with competing cover acts

Rival Oasis tribute bands are engaged in a war of words.

Darren Spiby, the lead singer of cover act Noasis, says that there are several spats among competing bands paying homage to the British rockers, who rose to fame in the 1990s.

In fact, the drama could be compared to the real life feud between brothers and original Oasis members Liam and Noel Gallagher.

‘There is huge football terrace type rivalry between the Oasis tribute band fans, not unlike Liam and Noel and Oasis and Blur back in the Britpop days, and trash talk across social media between band members is rife,’ Darren said.

Some of the other tribute bands include Definitely Oasis, Some Might Say, Shakerfaker, Live Forever, Mad Ferret, Fauxasis, Saku, Stop the Clocks, Oas-ish, SuperSonic, Sally Can Wait and Themasterplan.

The band coined the name Noasis in 1995, another one trademarked the name in the UK, and since then they’ve taken shots at each other on socials and in the media.

‘The other Noasis claim to have formed in 2013. Although a bit like Oasis their line up seems to change as regularly as underpants,’ Darren claims.

‘We like to entertain the crowds who want to experience the rock shows of yesteryear, and always get comments from fans of ‘being back at Knebworth or Wembley, Loch Lomond or Main Road’ – these are legendary Oasis gigs that were performed to hundreds of thousands, before smart phones.’

Both Liam and Noel Gallagher have had success over the 13 years since they been disbanded Oasis.

Tribute bands have continued to push Oasis’ record sales and downloads, especially in Australia.

‘It’s great as the younger generation get our shows,’ says Darren. ‘The 18-25s are moshing at the front, the 26-plus in the middle and the 40+ either at the back drinking wine and entertaining a cheese board or throwing up in the wings after drinking pints of lager and moshing.’

Noasis play Sydney on 30 April at the Manning Bar and are touring nationally, including the Gold Coast, Melbourne, South Australia, Coolagatta, Brisbane, Perth and Freemantle, as well as touring the UK and Ireland between Sept 20th and 25th.
