Dig Out Your Soul In the Streets

Back in September, Oasis was getting ready to promote their latest album Dig Out Your Soul. However while on tour in Toronto, guitarist Noel Gallagher was attacked on stage, thus halting the next show in New York City. To make up for it, Oasis set up a program for NYC street musicians to leak tracks live in the city. These tracks included: "Bag It Up", "The Turning", "The Shock of the Lightning", and "(Get Off Your) High Horse Lady".

Now, in January, it turns out an The Malloys filmed an eighteen minute, black and white, documentary of the event and its setup stages. And, it is now being released on MySpace as the first HD documentary released on MySpace Music; if that does anything for you. Full announcement here

This was another one of those things here in New York City I missed out on, but thankfully I now have this great documentary to see what I missed. Can't say I enjoyed all the performances here though, but quite a few of the street musicians' takes definitely rivaled Dig Out Your Soul's final versions. And if you're wondering why Noel Gallagher is absent in the video, then you should have read above; he was still recovering from his injuries after the attack.
