What do you think of The Lost Tapes Vol. 1?
UK alt-rockers Breezer have come up with an AI version of a “lost” Oasis album after they admitted to feeling “bored” waiting for the band to reform.
The project, cleverly titled AISIS - The Lost Tapes / Vol.1, has been created with the style of Liam Gallagher’s vocals layered on top of the instrumentals, and the results are actually pretty damn good.
If you didn’t know this was an AI project, you might believe you’re listening to some Oasis demos. The vocals are very close to Liam’s, with the signature Britpop flair as delectable as ever.
All eight tracks on The Lost Tapes are original tracks written by Breezer during the 2021 Covid-19 lockdowns in the UK.
The “alternate reality concept album” is a fun 32-minute trip through what could have been if Oasis would make new music - a trip back to the 90s.
The YouTube description reads: “AISIS is an alternate reality concept album where the band’s 95-97 line-up continued to write music, or perhaps all got together years later to write a record akin to the first 3 albums, and only now has the master DAT tape from that session surfaced.
“We’re bored of waiting for Oasis to reform, so we’ve got an AI modelled Liam Gallagher (inspired by @JekSpek) to step in and help out on some tunes that were written during lockdown 2021 for a short lived, but much loved band called Breezer.
“It seemed to be a perfect match, and we love how some of these have turned out. We have a 2nd bunch of songs to come if you want to hear more.” Check it out below.
Liam and Noel Gallagher haven’t commented on the project yet.
Sadly, the brothers put an end to hopes of an Oasis reunion last month when a fan tweeted at Liam Gallagher and asked, “Liam is there a small percentage that Oasis get back together?”, and the As You Were singer responded, “It’s happening,” lighting a fuse underneath reunion rumours.
Noel Gallagher addressed the tweet in an interview with France Inter and commented, “Yeah, I understand it, yeah. No one has really come along to take our place. He should get his people to call my people. He's got my number, he's got my manager's number. Call us. But you know what? He won't call.”
Liam seemed enraged by his brother and posted on Twitter, “Here's how I see it the little fella aka potato has done a lot of damage to Oasis as a band / brand he's got a lot of making up to do not just to me but to you the fans the people that put us where we are today as you were.”
