Not suggesting they're reforming or playing don't worry..

This has finally surfaced online for any Oasis fans. Been wanting to see this for some time

Wow, that stage is TINY. And where are those tents you can see in the crowd shots? Are they camping in what is now the arena, I.e. before the slope up to the railway line?

Music is pretty dreary though. Leaden.

Yeah, there used to be public camping along the south side of the Other Stage field. I guess it gradually shrank over the years but there was definitely some remnants there as recently as 2005.

They played in the Pyramid area except the Pyramid Stage burnt down just over a week before the festival in 1994 so it was replaced by a a temporary main stage - I cant recall now exactly where it was placed - if it was in front of the old stage but it looks that the temporary main stage may not have been facing the same way as the old stage - certainly when they replaced it ' it was pointing in a different direction ' { I was told that it was for health and safety reasons by making the area larger but many claim otherwise }

I used to stand in the back area of the Mandela Tent and it was possible to see a band on the stage - when they built the current stage it was twisted away so standing in the exact same spot you cant see a bloody thing.

That video is of the NME Stage, the old name of the Other, not the Pyramid. It has NME written all over it.

EDIT: or were you just saying they also played the Pyramid that year?

well it was 22 years ago - Your Right - I was thinking about Glastonbury 1995 when they did play the temporary main stage so that must have been the NME stage in 1994.

Yeah I think the NME stage hosted Oasis, Blur, Pulp and Radiohead in 1994, imagine that in 2016.

Edit: Just looked at the lineup poster and the NME stage also had Bjork, Manics, Beastie Boys, Spiritualised & Boo Radleys that year amongst others.

An incredible set of names, no doubt, but I'm not sure that many people would argue that any of those bands were at the height of their powers in 1994.  Maybe the Beasties or Boo Radleys, I'm not really qualified to judge.

Boo Radleys were fabulous on record, but never quite managed to cut it live.

Until the one that wasn't bald turned into Elton John. And I also confused the bald one with the 'percussionist' from M-People and the turncoat in the Matrix. I'm good with names, me.

I'd definitely say Beastie Boys were at the peak of their powers in 94' still in a huff that I missed their Manchester Academy gig that year...

It should be acknowledged that Mufcock is the friendly, sensible face of Oasis fandom on these forums. Props.

Think I'll download this from youtube incase it disappears at some point. Would love it in better quality but I doubt thats likely. Would be nice if more rare early Oasis stuff like this was released. 

Who actually holds the rights to thos type of stuff? It was channel 4 who broadcast it back then. I've always thought BBC were missing a trick not broadcasting classic full sets their BBC4 late night music schedule for example. They only seen to show the same few every so often, but they must have an absolute shitload stuff.

Just to continue the Boo Radleys derail (I was a fan in my younger days), Martin Carr went solo as Brave Captain.

The bald guy (singer) was called Sice and he also did a solo album.

Was that as Eggman? I seem to remember a good song by Eggman on one of the Shine compilations.

I agree. Imagine how many classic sets they have between them (CH4+BBC). The amount of unbelievable stuff just sat there rotting away is terrible to think about.

It's ridiculous we had to wait 16 years to hear the full bowie gig for example.
