Continuing the neverending story that is the Gallagher Brothers Show, the remaining sibling of their old band — Liam — has announced that music made since the departure of primary songwriter/guitarist Noel may still carry the name Oasis. In an interview with NME, the singer said he and his bandmates — all of whom were with the band before Noel’s departure earlier this year — could begin recording as soon as early 2010, and even states he’d like to play live in just “a couple of months.” Oh the humanity “wibbling rivalry”:
“We’re not using it [the Oasis name] at the moment, but if we don’t come up with something else by the time we’re ready to release the album it’ll be Oasis. I’m not going to call myself something ridiculous just for the sake of it.”
And on the subject of not performing any Noel-penned songs live:
“I’m sure he thinks, I’ll do my solo career and if it doesn’t fucking pan out the way it’s expected I’ll give our kid a ring because he’ll be desperate and he’ll do anything for Oasis. Well, I’ll say this right now: he’s got another fucking thing coming. If he thinks he can ring me up at any given stage in his fucking lifetime, I’ll be busy. I’ll always be busy when he rings me up.”
I’m not sure how a Noel-song-free Oasis concert would go, but I would guess something along the lines of “mostly unrecognizable.” For the full story, visit NME.
