    Was watching an old TOTP2 on the iPlayer, when the Stone Roses pop up singing 'Fools Gold'. Mrs H remarks: 'They clearly modelled themselves on Oasis'. How we laughed.

    I was just thinking how Rain by the Beatles is an obvious Oasis rip-off too!

    There's a whole genre called 'Classical' that have ripped off ELO entirely.

    T. Rex ripped Oasis off too channeling the guitar riff from Cigarettes & Alcohol for their minor UK hit Get It On.

    As I see it the first to rip off Oasis were a bunch of monks a good few hundred years ago.

    I'm surprised Laim didn't sue Bert (Sesame St) for ripping off his monobrow look.

    There's a whole genre of music known as 'shopping'. Go into the supermarket history of pop and say in a Jamie Oliver style voice. 'I'll have two of those, a dozen of those and give us a bag of them, too'. I think the idea is a kind of rule book shortcut to success. You can hear it very well in the band The Disappears who combined a few British post-punk bands mixed with Neu into something that sounds like a few British post-punk bands mixed with Neu.

    The art of pop now just depends where you shop. If you have no imagination or limited ambition, you shop in the high street, if you are a bit more clever, or enjoy risk, you shop in the backstreets or look the junkshops.

    LCD Soundsystem fell over during an interview with Simon Reynolds, who was well acquainted with all the high street brands James Murphy had been buying.

    It's not always that predictable and the good ones develop their own brand after they've got tired of shopping and wearing other people's old clothes. By their 4th album, The Disappears had begun to sound a bit like themselves.
