Fade Away

FADE AWAY (N. Gallagher)
WRITTEN: Probably in Manchester (Masterplan promo interview)
DEMO: Confirmed. In circulation.
RECORDED: Sawmills Studios, Cornwall - March 1994
COMMENTS: Was going to be on the 1st album. Main song in the set in 93/94 before Live Forever was written. Noel thinks it was taken off the album for Slide Away. Song about growing up but not growing old. (Masterplan promo interview)

"That was a real, real early one from the days when we rehearsed down at the Boardwalk. I think people got on the line, "While we're living the dreams we have as children fade away". Which is quite true, really. It was a live thing in the studio and Liam just overdubbed his vocals, and these are the days before I turned into Jimmy Page and tried to do a guitar solo over every bit where there's no singing. So there's no guitar solo on it, which is cool. Sounds great when Liam sings it. It used to be f*g amazing live."
"People were, I wouldn't say pissed off, but pretty surprised when it wasn't on the first album. I don't know why it never made it. I was listening back to it the other day and it's a pretty raucous song. (NME, 31st October 1998)
OTHERS: Produced by Owen Morris and Noel Gallagher.
