Excluding the 'Supersonic' period of time (the rapid rise from the dole to Knebworth), what period of time intrigues you the most, with the band?
For me, it has to be the SOTSOG period. Guigs and Bonehead leaving, Noel going through a bit of a breakdown, Noel leaving the band, new producer, Creation collapsing and all the rest. I just recently watched CIGSALC's documentary on Youtube about it. Really interesting period of time.

Yeah, I actually think the ‘sequel’ to Supersonic covering Knebworth to SOTSOG would be more interesting than the 92-96 period.
It’d be more tragic seeing the fall but that for me would make better viewing; MTV unplugged, failed USA tour, recording Be Here Now, release of Be Here Now, Noel’s drug issues, Guigs and Bonehead leaving, recording SOTSOG would be a mad ride

For me, I am drawn to anything between the years 1999-2002. Those early years with Gem/Andy were really interesting in many different ways. From a live perspective they were a powerhouse, and Liam's voice was incredible. Even though the albums SOTSOG + HC may not be at a level of DM + WTSMG, they are both really high quality albums. The B-sides magic was also still there (Let's All Make Believe, Full On, Thank You For The Good Times, Idler's Dream).
Mmmm, that's a hard one for me, probably between 2000 & 2005 if that's allowed. For some odd reason I've always enjoyed that time. I don't know why as I know some of it wasn't great like when Noel walked out of the band for a while in 2000 (but I knew he would be back).But all in all it just seemed a good time.
