Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants Demos


These songs were recorded in Noel's home studio at Supernova Heights and at Wheeler End Studios with the assistance of Mark Coyle and Paul Stacey between 1998 and early 1999. All tracks are sung by Noel with the exception of Little James which is sung by Liam.

In an interview for in 2000, Noel made the following comments about the SOTSOG demos. "The thing about Standing on the Shoulder of Giants is that I had a full year to sit in my 16-track bedroom studio with an engineer friend and make demos, whereas the demo sessions for Be Here Now were finished in two weeks — and they were really rough. We didn't bother about what sounds we were going to use, or the arrangements, or anything. I thought, "We'll work all that out when we get to the studio." This time, however, I had basically done the album twice before it even got to the band. I had written and recorded the songs on a little Walkman, and then I demoed the tracks on ADATs in my bedroom. And we ended up using a lot of stuff from the demos on the actual record because the demos were that good."

These tracks were leaked onto the Internet via a private FTP on the 31st January 2000, although brief information on the tape, including the names of the four songs not on the SOTSOG tracklisting was posted on on the 4th December 1999.
