The superb Oasis documentary Supersonic is on TV tonight

Essential for all Oasis fans.

Directed by Mat Whitecross, Supersonic is the rags-to-riches story about ignoring industry indifference to reap the ultimate rewards… and then some.

We're massive fans of the 2016 Oasis documentary - you can read our deep-dive here - but if you haven't seen it yet then you're in for a real treat.

Charting the rise and rise and rise of the brothers Gallagher, the film captures some incredible anecdotes and gigs of Liam and Noel at their very best... and worst.

Truth be told, the stories about them snorting crystal meth before a live show and how they got thrown off a ferry en route to Amsterdam are absolute gold.

Aside from the sex, drugs and rock 'n roll, there are also some moments that truly captured the brilliance of the band.

Noel's story about how long it took him to record Supersonic is a testament to his skill as a musician while the story about how 'Talk Tonight' came into creation shows a completely different side to the gifted guitarist.

With a sequel being rumoured, Supersonic is an essential watch for anyone that lived through the Britpop era.

With a rating of 82% on Rotten Tomatoes, you definitely should definitely "take the time to make some sense, Of what you want to" watch next week.

Here's what the critics made of it:

NY Times - "It may surprise people who've experienced the Gallaghers only in tabloid-fodder mode that "Supersonic" teems with stirring and even moving moments."

Variety - "A riotously enjoyable, appropriately deafening flashback to one of the last moments in music history when a bunch of knuckleheads with guitars could conquer the world on chutzpah alone."

TIME - "Captures the essential cheek, unbridled power chords and thundering rhythm section that make for an arena-worthy band."

Supersonic is on BBC Two tonight - Sunday 24 June - at 11pm.
