Liam Gallagher Ditches Oasis Name For His New Group

Liam Gallagher has announced that his new group will be ditching the Oasis name in favour of something new.

The continuous arguments between Gallagher brothers Noel and Liam finally shook Oasis apart last year. After walking away from the wreck of his former group, Liam took some time out to holiday in Italy with some close friends and promised to be back with new material. Since the spilt however, speculation has been rife over what exactly the singer plans to do.

Having now formed a new band with some familiar faces, Liam Gallagher is set to remain as frontman for what is essentially the final version of Oasis, minus his brother. Speaking to XFM Radio, Liam spoke out about the name of the new band, revealing that he does not intend on using the Oasis name on the new album.

"No, it's not Oasis, that was a shit name anyway," Liam Gallagher revealed. "I'm glad to see the back of it."

Taking the name ‘Oasis’ from a venue in Swindon. Liam Gallagher continued to claim that with the new band currently working hard on recording, he was planning to release new material by July this year.
Remaining tight-lipped over any possible new names for the group. "There's a name that we're digging at the moment, but we're going to get on with the music and see how it goes."

Meanwhile, Liam’s brother Noel has confirmed that his first solo appearance since leaving Oasis will be a two-night performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The star will play in aid of the charity Teenage Cancer Trust on Thursday 25th March and Friday 26th March.

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.
