You'd never have guessed: The View are cut from Oasis' cloth

We're always puzzled when bands cite Oasis as an inspiration. Unless they mean "it turns out you can make a stack of cash with very little creative effort, one idea and a nifty PR machine", of course, which might explain why The View believe they owe it all to Noel:

Peter Reilly said it was "special, really special, because we look up to Oasis so much, who are probably the reason we are in a band, so it's an absolute privilege".

Since they appeared on stage with ole monobrow on Monday, it's unlikely Reilly means that they formed a band because of Oasis in a bid to offer some alternative; any alternative whatsoever.
