Standing on the Edge of the Noise is a look at Oasis performing in their own space, instead of the huge stadium stages on which they are more often seen. The programme includes a mix of classics and new tracks from Dig Out Your Soul. It's a one-off live show that they played for a handful of fans in their rehearsal studio, as preparations for their 2008/2009 "Dig Out Your Soul Tour". It is also the name of a track on Oasis's successor band Beady Eye's debut album.

An edit for TV was shown on 4Music on 23 November 2008,[1] and on Channel 4 on 29 November 2008.[2]

"Standing on the Edge of the Noise" was also a song written by Gem Archer, released when Beady Eye included it on their debut album, 2011's Different Gear, Still Speeding.
