Oasis made their debut at Glastonbury in 1994, and the set became one of their most iconic performances during their Brit pop reign.
The Manchester band, which originally formed in 1991, hit the big time following the release of their first album, Definitely Maybe – a record that entered the charts at No1 within a week of its release, and at the time became the fastest-selling debut album in the UK.
However, the album was released weeks after their Glastonbury performance, and with no money coming in from the record sales, frontman Liam Gallagher admitted the purse strings were tight.
With not a lot of cash in his back pocket, the lack of money attributed to his laid-back look which comprised of a sweater from a well-loved high-retail retailer.
Speaking to BBC sounds recently, Liam recalled: “I can’t remember much about [the set] but I remember what I was wearing, a blue Marks & Spencer jumper cause we hadn’t had any money.
“The album hadn’t come out – it all went a bit Gucci after that didn’t it?”
Meanwhile, in a separate interview, brother Noel Gallagher, Oasis’ lead songwriter, poked fun at his aesthetic.
Speaking to the iPlayer series BBC Reel Stories last year, he recounted: “When I watch footage of those days and I see what I was wearing, I always think I’m wearing someone else’s clothes, someone who’s two stone heavier than me and four foot taller.”
Oasis served up swagger and singalongs during their Sunday afternoon shift, and Liam said to the crowd: “Are you gonna wake up then yeah? Some real songs.”
The band kicked off their performance with Shakermaker, and attendees soon bounced along with Liam slapping his tambourine and gulping from a can of Stella.
During the energetic 40 minute set, Oasis played Fade Away, Digsy’s Dinner, and Cigarettes & Alcohol, among others.
Wrapping up, the band covered The Beatles’ I Am The Walrus and Liam shouted to the animated crowd: “Nice one, see ya later.”
A year later, they returned with their No1 album Definitely Maybe – a defining moment in the Brit pop era.
