Viewers couldn’t praise Supersonic highly enough after it aired on TV for the first time last night
Safe to say the audience was mad for it.
Despite the fact that both Liam and Noel Gallagher are still pursuing pretty successful careers, the public tends to hear more about their long-running feud (and their recent reconciliation) than their music these days.
Which is a pity, because fans of Oasis won’t need much persuading to reflect on the glory years when, for most of the ‘90s and a little bit beyond, the Gallagher brothers were the face of one of the biggest bands on the planet.
Oasis fans got to take a trip down memory lane on Wednesday night when the highly-acclaimed documentary Supersonic aired on UK television for the very first time and left a lasting impact on those who had yet to see it as well as others who had but were keen to relive the experience.

As well as telling the in-depth tale of how the band came to be, it also features some amazing stories about life on the road, great live footage and, of course, an insight into the often fraught relationships between band members, particularly the Gallagher brothers themselves, and of the Gallaghers' relationship with their parents.

The good news is, if you can stay awake, it’s on again tonight, or, more precisely, at 0.55am on Friday morning.
4% of the British population applied for Oasis tickets at Knebworth. Think about that. #Supersonic

We went from Oasis, Stone Roses, Blur, Pulp, Radiohead, Ocean Colour Scene, Happy Mondays etc to N Dubz, Justin Bieber, and Jax Jones. How depressing #Supersonic

Noel constantly talks about the music being all that would remain - and bloody hell it was great. Had forgotten that I still remember almost every single word. #Supersonic

“It was the pre-digital age, the pre-talent show reality TV age...things meant more”
Noel Gallagher sums up the feeling of the 90s in the brilliant #Oasis #Supersonic documentary.
He’s so right. Things meant SO much more in the 90s. pic.twitter.com/gg3Cl1znH3

Never been too bothered about @oasis getting back together - they were great, the best even. But it’s done. But watching #Supersonic makes me think it would be amazing to see them live again. No one else around like them.

Listening to Noel and Liam telling the Oasis story in their own words, you could not imagine two more different people coexisting for as long as they did. Their relationship produces genius and chaos in equal measure. Captivating dynamic. #Supersonic
