Liam Gallagher: 'Oasis Will Only Reform If We're Skint'

The one-time Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has spoken about a potential Oasis re-union, claiming he would only consider reforming with the band if he was “fucking skint”.

Forever one to speak his mind, Liam Gallagher has made his name by telling it like it is. Massively outspoken, his words and attitude have often contributed to a number of showbiz scraps and bickering with his mouth perhaps causing the final demise of Oasis in France last year.

Launching his clothing range Pretty Green, the singer recently appeared at the label’s London store opening on Friday July 30th. With a mass of reporters turning out to capture the launch, Liam Gallagher took a few minutes to talk about the possibility of an Oasis reunion. Labelling the prospect unlikely, the singer said, “The only reason why Oasis will come back is when we’re fucking skint. I’m far from skint as you can tell – and I won’t be skint for a long long fucking time. Believe me, it aint gonna be happening.” These comments follow-up a previous statement made by the singer where he described the Oasis split as the “best thing that’s ever happened”.

Currently working hard with ex-Oasis bandmates on new band ‘Beady Eye’, Liam Gallagher has bigged-up the new group telling Sky News that their debut album will be the “best record you’ll hear for the next 50 years”.

Continuing to describe what kind of stuff we can expect on the album, he said. “We have this tune and it was a bit Rolling Stonesy, and I didn’t like it. It was slow and boring. So we just got on a piano and fuck it up, Jerry Lee style, and stuck a John Lennon vocal on the top. It’s good.”

Beady Eye’s debut single is set for release in October this year with the group’s first album hitting shelves in early 2011.

Interpol - Marauder (Album Review)

Photo: Jamie-James Medina Having dispensed with the anagrams following the release of the excellent ‘El Pintor’ four years ago, Interpol’s sixth album ‘Marauder’ is the subject of a production shift. Not since 2007’s ‘Our Love To Admire’ have they employed an outside producer, so it’s somewhat surprising to find Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, the Flaming Lips) at the helm here.

We Were Promised Jetpacks - The More I Sleep The Less I Dream (Album Review)
Thu 27 Sep 2018
Album four from Edinburgh's We Were Promised Jetpacks is, in their own words, about going back to basics. Since 2014’s ‘Unravelling’ they’ve changed management and label, both potential pitfalls, while recording was undertaken in the US with producer Jonathan Low. Running alongside these changes on ‘The More I Sleep The Less I Dream’ is the switch back to their original four man configuration and something approximating the style of their early releases.

Tue 02 Oct 2018
It’s one year since we said we’d see Tom Petty somewhere along the road, and it’s still a bitter one to swallow. We’ve had time to accept that there’s a full stop to his story, and to understand our relationship with his music in a new context, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it.
Alt-J - Reduxer (Album Review)
Mon 01 Oct 2018
Remix albums don’t always work. The best examples refresh and reveal elements of the original songs, giving them new life and often broadening their appeal. When they fail, it is often because the tracks lack the integrity and consistency of the source material.
