In case you were holding on to even a glimmer of hope that an Oasis reunion would, could, maybe, slightly, possibly happen at some point in the near or distant future, Liam Gallagher has set the record straight.
Speaking to Chris Moyles on Radio X, he said that he and his brother Noel are 'living in different worlds' and that he misses the "old Noel who was a bit of a f****** lad" but is now "after something else in life."
Disappointing, but it's nothing they can't work through, right?
"I’d rather f****** work in McDonald’s mate or get hit by a f****** 18-wheeler at 100 miles an hour, than bring my band and put it in that world," he added. That'd be a firm no then.
He explained: "I’m not saying he should be like me and he should be going out doing what he’s doing, because we all change and I’ve changed, I’ve definitely slowed down.
“I’m not saying you should be going out f****** gobbing on people and f****** swearing and s*** like that or whatever it is that people think we are, but I’m more on about the corporate side of it. He’s living over there in that world, you know what I mean, and there’s no f****** room for Oasis in that world as far as I’m concerned."
Liam and Noel have famously been feuding for years, recently with potato-based insults on Twitter. Despite this, Liam still praised Noel for being a "far better songwriter [with] some really good strong songs".
When Moyles asked Liam whether his brother would be a fan of his forthcoming album As You Were, he said: "I think he will dig it, without a doubt, and he’ll come out and say it like a good boy, you know what I mean?
"He’ll come out and go, ‘That’s a good f****** album’. But deep down he’ll be f****** going ‘That little f*****’, you know what I mean?"
Liam releases his first solo album on October 6. Its lead single, Wall Of Glass, reached Number 21 on the Official Singles Chart. Many of the album's tracks are produced by Greg Kurstin, who is behind a string of hits including Adele's Hello and Sia's Cheap Thrills.
He's expected to release a new track from the album, called Eh La, later this week. After performing the song in an Irish bar in Montreal over the weekend, he tweeted this:
New music coming this week. As you were. LG x— Liam Gallagher (@liamgallagher) August 7, 2017
