Probably the best version of this song. Live from the 1995 Glastonbury festival in front of 120 000 peoples. Noel was sick and wearing a Duffle Coat, but his voice and play was on top, and Liam has never been as good as this particular 1995 year. And it was Paul McCartney favorite Oasis song by the way. This is brilliant

I discovered Yann Gourdon and his band FRANCE three or four years ago on Joseph Ghosn's blog and then try to follow their projects until the their performance at the 2011 Kraak festival in Belgium. I wasn’t there, but the few videos I saw where so rough and unbelievable, that after I tried to collect everything they made or were involved to. And there’s a lot of stuff. Yann Gourdon is a very prolific artist, who plays the Gurdy and work on drone and the continuous tone, alone or in bands like Puech Gourdon Brémau, Toad, Le Verdouble and many more …
Do Den Haag Church is a 43 minutes live recording by FRANCE from 2008, with Jeremie Sauvage on bass, Mathieu Tilly on drums and Gourdon on the Gurdy. I uploaded the entire set on youtube. It’s an amazing slow and hypnotic piece of music surrounded by a wall of electric drone fuzz.
In 1957 Glenn Gould made a 14 days journey in Russia for 8 shows in the middle and probably at the highest point of the cold war. It’s was a real shock, politically, historically and musically. Gould played the Goldberg Variations (only released two years before) in front of the greatest Russian pianists at that time, and it was unreal. That trip changed his life and futures generations of Russian musicians and peoples forever.
