REWIND: The Real People - 'Window Pane'

Like a lot of other people, I first heard of The Real People through their association with Oasis, who were still unsigned when Noel Gallagher first met Tony Griffiths of the band. In the early 90's, Noel contacted Griffiths and asked him to help record the eight song music demo that became 1993's Live Demonstration tape, which landed Oasis with their first record deal. The tape included many of the songs that eventually featured on the band's first album Definitely Maybe. Tony Griffiths is credited with providing vocals on 'Supersonic', while Chris Griffiths co-wrote 1995 b-side 'Rockin' Chair' with Noel Gallagher. The Real People were formed in 1986 and released 'Window Pane' as a single in 1990. It reached number 60 in the UK singles charts.
