I saw Oasis on their 2nd UK tour - May 3rd 1994 - a couple of weeks after Supersonic came out, at the "legendary" TJs in Newport, Wales. I don't remember too much about it other than it was very loud, very hot and very good.

Like your Wetlands, TJs closed in 2010 after the death of the owner, last I heard it was going to be turned into a hotel but I don't know if that ever happened. Some of my best gigs ever took place there - Fugazi, Hole, Therapy?, Shellac, Napalm Death, Rocket from the Crypt are the ones that immediately spring to mind. Legend has it that Kurt Cobain drove from London to Newport to propose to Courtney. I was there that night but I don't remember seeing him there.

I got off the Oasis bus quite quickly, What's the Story Morning Glory never really did much for me but for a year or so back then - Definitely Maybe and its singles & B-sides - I really did think they were one of the best bands in the world
