Oasis New Documentary/Live DVD Out Soon, Rare Vinyl Contest Now.

In celebration of the forthcoming release of the new Oasis documentary and live DVD set, Lord Don't Slow Me Down, and the fact that Oasis and extrawack! faves Manchester City FC remain near the top of the Premiership table, extrawack! would like to give two lucky readers each a very rare and collectible vinyl copy of the "Lord Don't Slow Me Down" single.

From the press release:
What happens when a film maker follows one of the world's biggest bands on a year long world tour? What happens when the film maker is granted unique access to that band, is present for the ups and downs, the moments of greatness and the periods of the same interview in 10 different languages in as many days? What happens when that band is Oasis, travelling across 26 countries on their biggest world tour to date playing to a total of over 2 million people?

The answer is Lord Don't Slow Me Down (Big Brother/Hip-O/UMe), a double DVD set that not only gives you the definitive feature length documentary seen in selected cinemas last year, but also the option of voice over commentaries from the band, a Noel Gallagher Q & A session with fans from New York City, out takes from the film, and a second 90 minute bonus disc capturing the band's homecoming show at the City of Manchester Stadium together with footage sent in by fans from around the world who attended that show. If you wanted to know what the members of Oasis make of their lives on tour and their audience, then the answers are on these two discs.

Directed by Baillie Walsh who has previously worked with Massive Attack (he made 'Safe From Harm'), Spiritualized, New Order and Kylie's Slow, and is now working on a film with Daniel Craig, this DVD set is a compendium of Oasis entertainment par excellence.

Lord Don't Slow Me Down contents:
Disc One:
-Feature length documentary tour film 'Lord Don't Slow Me Down' in stereo and surround sound.
-Bonus audio commentary - Noel, Liam, Andy and Gem guide you through the film with their recollections of the tour.
- A Noel Gallagher Q&A session with fans runs alongside out-takes from the film.
Bonus Disc:
-Oasis live at City of Manchester Stadium on 2nd July 2005 - sixteen classic tracks shot in HD with stereo and surround sound.
-Bonus Disc also features unique footage and pictures sent in by fans who attended the concert.

Lord Don't Slow Me Down will be released on November 6, 2007.

To win a copy of the Oasis vinyl (which as far as I can tell is their first non-Sony release in the United States ever, making it instantly collectible), be either the 5th or the 10th person to tell us what Madchester band Noel Gallagher toured America with as a roadie. Send your entries to with the subject line "OASIS".

Contest open to U.S. entrants only...sorry East Timor!
