As part of our nightly series celebrating the 25th anniversary of Oasis' classic album, The Clockworks perform 'Some Might Say'.
Our celebrations for the 25th anniversary of Oasis' era-defining album (What's The Story) Morning Glory? continue – with a special performance from The Clockworks, covering 'Some Might Say'.
Scoring Oasis their first No.1 single on the UK charts, 'Some Might Say' was the last track to feature their original drummer Tony McCarroll.
"Do you remember a band called Grant Lee Buffalo? No one does," Noel Gallagher said during his recent 25th anniversary track-by-track of (What's The Story) Morning Glory. "They were an American indie band, after grunge. I'm not a fan, but they had this tune called 'Fuzzy'. You can see that this was a big influence on 'Some Might Say'.
"I'll obsess about a song for years, and I'll rip it off 12 times," he continues. "I'll get 12 different tunes out of it. Everything that I do is a nod to something, or other. I'm not a genius – I'm a fan of music. Paul McCartney's a genius, and fucking Morrissey and Bob Dylan. I'm not. I'm just fans of their's. I've got a good knack for putting shit together, but I'm not a snob about where it comes from.
"I'll tell you, nothing is original. There's only 12 notes, anyway!"
Last year, former Oasis boss Alan McGee signed Galway alt-rockers The Clockworks to his new Creation 23 label. The hotly tipped band released their latest single, 'Can I Speak To A Manager?', to widespread acclaim back in August.
