noasis was born December 1995
in a disused hotel room in Derby England
Initially six lads. Five who played a bit and one who wanted to be the manager. Dragged from the humdrum of big haired glam rock and electronic pop music by the sound coming from their radios, CD players and the Juke box in their local bar, they realised before any other that Oasis were going to be what the music industry and the bored angry public needed. So these lads set about performing anthems such as Some Might Say, Live Forever, Cigarettes & Alcohol, Supersonic and thus creating a snap shot for those unable to secure a ticket to the now historical shows at Knebworth, Main Road, Wembley, Glastonbury and Loch Lomond.
They called themselves noasis and went about creating a backdrop banner which accompanied them to every gig and still does today!
Jump forward twenty odd years and noasis have skipped continent and are here in Australia recreating that inspiring Wall of Sound and a visual experience that will bring generations of live music lovers together. Noel, our kid Liam and the band are the real deal. Don’t forget your bucket hats and Lennon shades... Mad fer it!!!

Darren’s first band slot was at the age of 17 as a percussionist for a politically driven original 9 piece band which had some local and national success peaking by playing on a popular Radio One slot with DJ Adrian Just. A countless number of jam bands as a drummer/guitarist and singer and lots of rehearsing brought him to front noasis DERBY UK as Liam Gallagher. LEIBERMAN a 4 piece original Melodic Rock band who recorded and played for A/R and got close (but not quite close enough) came next and ran for a few years before splitting to do other things. Darren also worked on the live circuit as a soloist, in sessions as a singer and guitarist, and in a casual duo before emigrating to Australia in 2013.
