Product Description

What happens when a film maker follows one of the world's biggest bands on a year-long world tour? What happens when that band is OASIS, travelling across 26 countries on their biggest world tour to date playing to a total of over 2 million people? The answer is found in LORD DON'T SLOW ME DOWN, a 2 disc special set that includes the feature length documentary with the option for audio commentary by the film maker and/or the band, and an entire performance before the hometown fans in Manchester.

Amazon.com

For all intents and purposes, Noel and Liam Gallagher are Oasis. So in Oasis: Lord Don't Slow Me Down, it doesn't really matter that the rest of the band (which includes Ringo Starr's son Zak Starkey on drums) wasn't in the lineup when the group made it big in 1995 with songs such as "Wonderwall." The two-disc DVD offers a documentary as well as a concert filmed in the group's native Manchester, England, in 2005. In its heyday, Oasis was at the top of its game. They looked and sounded like the Beatles and had the raging attitude of the Rolling Stone and the Sex Pistols. Oasis was the best band in the world; they'd tell anyone who'd listen. And in the mid-1990's, a lot of people believed them. Some dozen years after its heyday, Oasis isn't nearly as popular as it once was. But the group is still fierce when it comes to performing live; musically, they are completely in synch. Songwriter Noel's arrangements, guitar playing, and harmony, perfectly complements younger brother Liam's lead vocals. Liam is an unusual front man who rarely moves on stage. Often seen with a dour look on his video-friendly face, he stands at the microphone stand with his hands behind his back. He leans in when he sings, and when he's done he may shake a tambourine. But mostly, he stands still, letting his voice, rather than his body, tell their songs' stories. The film captures the excitement Oasis can still generate in its fans, although both the Gallaghers' voices tend to be drowned out during the performance. Yes, it's true that the vociferous audience is vocal throughout the show, often singing along with the brothers, but the audio quality of the concert footage isn't up to par with what today's technology can offer. The documentary portion is a fascinating look at the combative brothers, who spew expletives at each other in thick Mancunian accents. Whether they truly have that much contempt for each other or realize that it's a great marketing scheme is debatable. But it's still entertaining to watch. The same can't be said for the extras, which aren't worth looking at unless you enjoy viewing shaky cell phone videos shot by fans. --Jae-Ha Kim

I just picked up this DVD the day it was released. Alot of people were worried about the US version not being the same as the UK. No worries for fans, Amazon's information is wrong. The US version has the full (unedited) 95 minute version of the documentary and does include the bonus DVD of the Manchester 2005 concert. I was lucky to see the documentary at a screening almost a year ago, but it was an edited version used for promotion and TV. The full version flows a little better, although I was overall somewhat bored with it, I think it was the director's (Baillie Walsh) intent to perhaps capture some of the monotony of being on the road day after day. I was hoping to see the Gallaghers tear things up a bit more, but in truth their wild antics have left them and you see more mature (and perhaps boring) sensibility towards life on the road. That being said though, it is still fabulous for die-hard Oasis fans espescially footage of gem, andy, and noel playing ideas on acoustic guitar. The black & white give the documentary a classic feel, without being pretentious. What makes it worth buying (it's readily available for download, albeit illegally, on youtube and fan sites at least for now) is the commentary track done by Gem, Noel, Liam, Andy, Baillie, and a few others. The commentary audio track is available for the entire film, and there is where the Gallaghers' humor and personality shines through, where as the film itself didn't seem to catch that. There is alot more insight into why the band loves to do what they do, after all these years. As far as bonus features, there's also the an audio Q&A with Noel that's quite revealing in his attitudes towards Be Here Now, touring, and future plans.Read more ›

In Spring, 2005, Oasis released its 6th studio album "Don't Believe the Truth", and immediately went on the road for what seemed to be a never-ending tour around the world in support of the album. The tour eventually wound up a full year later. This DVD is the chronicle of that tour.

"Lord Don't Slow Me Down" is split up in 2 DCDs. On DVD 1 (105 min.) it brings a documentary of what it's like to be on the road for such a long tour, and if there is one word that I can think of, it's "slug", as in: it's a slug to be touring. The documentary shows the band going from the hotel or the tour bus to yet another airport and another concert venue. The guys play cards a lot, do endless media interviews and other promotions, and generally do a lot of waiting around. Fun is different, it seems to me. The best part here is the 10-15 min. Q&A bonus at the end with Noel, where he takes questions from the audience (not sure where or who), answering questions like what he thinks his most Beatles-esque song is (that would be "All Around the World", according to Noel).

On DVD2 (90 min.), it brings the full show of Oasis' home-coming show in Manchester in July 2005. It sounds great, but the set is heavy on tracks from the mediocre "Don't Believe the Truth" and even worse, the setlist is simply too predictable. With as rich a back-catalogue as Oasis has, surely the band could've uncovered some better songs to play? I saw Oasis twice on this tour, and the setlist was virtually identical. As to the bonus materials, there are 12 clips from fans who were at the show and used their cell phone or digicam to prove it. Not surprisingly, these clips are virtually unwatchable due to the poor sound and/or video quality. In all, "Lord Don't Slow Me Down" is pretty much a letdown for me. If you want to watch Oasis at its best live, I would much rather recommend 1996's "There and Then" concert video, which is miles better than this.

Despite what Amazon says the Oasis fans in the US are getting the same 2 disc version as the UK. You won't need to import a PAL version or NTSC version from another country so enough with the low scores. Here is the press release confirming the same exact version as the UK

OASIS
Lord Don't Slow Me Down
Big Brother/Hip-O/UMe
November 6, 2007 on DVD

What happens when a film maker follows one of the world's biggest bands on a year long world tour? What happens when the film maker is granted unique access to that band, is present for the ups and downs, the moments of greatness and the periods of the same interview in 10 different languages in as many days? What happens when that band is Oasis, travelling across 26 countries on their biggest world tour to date playing to a total of over 2 million people?

The answer is Lord Don't Slow Me Down (Big Brother/Hip-O/UMe), a double DVD set that not only gives you the definitive feature length documentary seen in selected cinemas last year, but also the option of voice over commentaries from the band, a Noel Gallagher Q & A session with fans from New York City, out takes from the film, and a second 90 minute bonus disc capturing the band's homecoming show at the City of Manchester Stadium together with footage sent in by fans from around the world who attended that show. If you wanted to know what the members of Oasis make of their lives on tour and their audience, then the answers are on these two discs.

Directed by Baillie Walsh who has previously worked with Massive Attack (he made 'Safe From Harm'), Spiritualized, New Order and Kylie's Slow, and is now working on a film with Daniel Craig, this DVD set is a compendium of Oasis entertainment par excellence.
