Feeder live at The Roundhouse, Chalk Farm–Review

Oasis released a 3CD 20th-anniversary edition of ‘Be Here Now’ this year. The original album featured Johnny Depp on guitar on the track ‘Fade In-Out’. The new 3CD version featured Oasis performing The Beatles ‘Help’. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9-MdbXhQBQ] Since the break-up of Oasis Liam Gallagher has released two […]
