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.

Imagination Is Key: How The Sheepdogs Are Keeping Rock 'N' Roll Colourful
Wed 31 Oct 2018
It’s virtually impossible to do anything completely new in the realm of rock'n'roll, especially when some of the greatest acts of all time have already pioneered, innovated and explored the genre to its very limits and beyond. Does that mean like-minded young bands should just lazily imitate their predecessors or even give up? Hell, no. They need to follow the example set by the Sheepdogs, write the best songs possible and spice them up with as many stylistic and instrumental flavours as their talents will allow.

Baxter Dury, Étienne De Crécy, Delilah Holiday - B.E.D (Album Review)
Thu 08 Nov 2018
When Baxter Dury picks apart the ironies of the modern day on Only My Honesty Matters, in that deep, cigarette-gravelled voice, the minimalism of the instrumental beneath his rhythmic, spoken word monologue about “having a roll up” and “impotent white obvious people” listening to Florence and the Machine is almost forgivable. Almost.
Swearin' - Fall Into The Sun (Album Review)
Thu 01 Nov 2018
Space can be good, whether it’s allowing us to take a break from people or helping intrigue to blossom in the moments left unfilled in a piece of music. Left to our own devices, we are able to take stock, gain perspective and ultimately grow. It feels like Swearin’, who split in 2015 when guitarists and vocalists Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride ended their romantic and musical relationship, would back that sentiment.
