An Oasis in the multimedia desert

An Oasis in the multimedia desert


Europress has released the first CD-ROM in a new series called Interactive Songbook, which takes a look at the music and history of popular rock groups.

Oasis and its second album, (What's the Story) Morning Glory?, has gone under the microscope in the Oasis Interactive Songbook (RRP $69.95), which was developed by Northstar Multimedia in Manchester. The CD-ROM provides an entertaining look at the antics of Oasis (rest assured - the f*** words have been deleted) - how the band got started, along with a complete discology.

All of the tracks from (What's the Story) Morning Glory? are featured in the Interactive Songbook that enables users to sing along karaoke-style (full lyrics in scroll-style let you know when to jump in). Animated graphics explain the guitar chords and keyboard parts which are also included. There's also a solo version for the keyboard and guitar parts of each song.

Also included are short video clips of the band's live performances, a quiz to test your Oasis knowledge (what's Noel Gallagher's favourite food? Hmmm, cigarettes and alcohol?).

The songbook is complete with Noel Gallagher's approval - you "coon't go wrung". And we all know he's got high standards - when asked about Oasis' latest single he replied: "The chorus is drop dead. It's so good I can't believe I wrote it."

Later this year artists including Blur, U2, INXS and Simply Red will join the Interactive Songbook range.

Only for Windows 95, Oasis Interactive Songbook requires a minimum 486, dual-speed CD-ROM drive, 8Mb RAM.
