Liam Gallagher took to the TwitterSphere this week and announced that his documentary ‘As It Was’ is complete. Gallagher completed the tweet by describing the finished piece as ‘mega’. The film follows the singer’s journey from Oasis band member to solo superstar. The film will debut at Cannes Film Festival upon it’s release later this year.
To create the documentary, Liam brought in his director from the video of his single ‘Chinatown’, Charlie Lightening.
Lightening describes Liam Gallagher and his journey as ‘one of the greatest rock’n’roll comebacks of all times’.
Lightening also stated that ‘you are there with him each step of the way’. According to NME, we will be told the ’emotional story of how one of the greatest rock frontmen went from the dizzying heights of his champagne supernova years in Oasis to living on the edge.’ The writers have shown how Gallagher was ‘ostracised, lost in the musical wilderness of boredom, booze and bitter legal battles’.
The film differs from Oasis-ified tale in ‘Supersonic’. With ‘As It Was’ stepping away from the hay-day the band. Instead, it shows how Liam emerges from his brothers Noels shadow. With interviews from family and friends alike, we see Liam go from strength to strength. Including the writing and recording of his first solo album, right through to playing the album live for the first time in his hometown, Manchester.
Gallagher announced on Twitter that he will be releasing new music later this year. Additionally, he will be performing new material at his tour dates across Europe this summer. The showman will be performing at Independence Park in Cork, Ireland which comes about just in time for a stint at Glastonbury. Whilst unconfirmed, the likelihood of seeing the Oasis royalty seems rife amongst Glasto spectators, and line-up rumour sites alike.
