Oasis reunion will happen once Liam and Noel start talking

music news 31/07/2017

Liam Gallagher says it's "inevitable" Oasis will reform one day, but not until he and Noel Gallagher mend their relationship.

A fight between the brothers split the band in 2009. Since then, Liam's released two albums with Beady Eye and is about to drop his debut solo record, while Noel has released two records under the name Noel Gallagher's High-Flying Birds.

Speaking to expat Kiwi broadcaster Zane Lower on Beats 1, Liam said he regrets their ongoing feud.

"The most important thing that people keep missing is that me and our kid (Noel) don't speak and that's the saddest thing about it, two wrongs don't make no right.

"So before Oasis get back to together and before this cheques knocking about, me and him need to start becoming brothers and friends again, and inevitably we'll start making music."

But in the meantime, he's not going to stop harassing his brother, whom he often refers to as a "potato" in barbed tweets.

"I find it funny taking the piss out of my older brother, who thinks his shit don't stink. I find it funny."

If the band does ever reform, Liam told Beats 1 it wouldn't be for the money.

 "There doesn't matter how many noughts are on the end. I know you've heard it a million times, but it's not about the money. We were the real deal."

In contrast, brother Noel - who wrote most of the band's music, including all of their first three albums - has regularly said he'd only do it for the money.

"If I was ever going to do it, it would only be for the money," he told music magazine Qin 2015.

"Would I do it for charity? No way. We're not that kind of people. For Glastonbury? I don't think [organiser] Michael Eavis has got enough money.

"But would we get back together one day? As long as everybody is still alive and still has their hair, it's always a possibility. But only for the money."

Liam's solo record As You Were is out on October 6.
