Seven albums and seventeen years into their career, Oasis still doesn't seem to have listened to a record made after 1973. The band's recently-released Dig Out Your Soul offers echoes of their era-soundtrack second album, 1995's (What's the Story) Morning Glory, yet it - and last night's show - is still basically the Beatles with some Who ballyhoo and stolen Marc Bolan.
