20th Century Pop! is a podcast that tries to understand the present by living in the past.  Each week hosts Bob and Tim take a sociological look at the pop culture of the '80s and '90s.  Its a ruining of their childhood that hopefully explains how they became adults.

OUVRE COMPENSATING: "He's a real Noel-where Man (formerly Liam It Be)" (1994-1998)  There was a time when the biggest music act on the planet shot straight out of Britain to invade the U.S.  Some would say they were bigger than Jesus.  They would would say "eff the Beatles." And this episode Bob will say they were his collegiate education on the majesty of pop music (to clarify ... its an episode about Oasis ... not The  Monkees .. but that was probably pretty clear).

Get in on the (formerly) biggest band in the world before they were the (formerly) biggest band in the world with an hour of early demos and live performances from OASIS: THE EARLY YEARS. 

Be thrilled for the Matt Whitecross Oasis documentary that may have been released (?) with this OFFICIAL TRAILER FOR SUPERSONIC.

Try and follow the Gallagher brothers arguing about their rock-and-roll reputations with this painfully transcribed transcript of WIBBLING RIVALRY, which reached number 52 on the UK release charts in 1995.

Listen to the band try to get it right with this 1992 rehearsal of ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
