Marc Riley dips into the BBC's archives and unearths seminal and tantalizing rock interviews.
It's funny how things can look so different many years down the line; once the dust has settled, tempers have calmed and much water has gone under the bridge.
Not seeking to open old wounds or anything, Marc Riley goes back in time to the turning points in the careers of some of the biggest artists in music to check out exactly what they DID say in the heat of the moment, and to put it into today's context....Liam and Noel Gallagher: It's a dream fix, getting one of the biggest bands in the world live on your show to promote their latest record 'Be Here Now'.
It seemed like just another night of cutting edge music in 1997 when Liam and Noel Gallagher turned up at the studio for Radio One DJ Steve Lamacq's evening show, but as we'll hear in this programme, things went horribly wrong once the red light went on.
In a beer-fuelled, expletive-filled interview Liam and Noel threatened to fight each other, as well as half the music community.
Then Liam stormed out.
It was great radio.
Lamacq says now: "We knew the press would be listening and that there would be a fuss.
I just wanted to keep them on air.
This was the first time in three or four years that they had been interviewed together.
You knew this was history before they'd even opened their mouths.
And then when they started swearing you knew they were going to end up in the press.".
