Former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher discussed wanting to ‘be brothers’ again with Noel in a new Consequence of Sound interview.
“They’re always gonna want Oasis songs, and I’m always gonna give it to them. It’s not a weight or a burden on my shoulder, I fucking love that band and I’m ready … if the band got back tomorrow, I’d be the first there, you know what I mean? So, I’m not holding things up and I’m not desperate to get the band back. If the band happened, it happens, but it’d have to be … it’s not about the check and it’s not about money, it’s about me and our kid getting back to being brothers, and if we ever do that and we like each other again, inevitably the next step would be to go on tour and make some music.
But, people are digging what I’m doing. Whether they’re not digging it as much as fucking Oasis, you can’t ram it down people’s throats. To force someone to go listen to my fucking new tune man, that’s not how I work and that’s not how music works. They dig it or they don’t. And if they dig Oasis more than they wanna dig this, that’s fucking cool, too.”
Liam has mercilessly trashed his brother on social media recently. Noel has maintained silence mostly, but he gets his own back on his rumored new album, according to The Daily Star.
Noel was encouraged to write songs spontaneously in the studio by producer David Holmes – and occasional digs at Liam came out in the music.
A source said: “David wanted Noel to ditch all the material he had when they started sessions last year and experiment in the studio. Inevitably there were days when Noel would have read or seen some of Liam’s rants.”
“He may have stayed silent publicly so far but he channelled some reactions into his songs.”
Speaking about working with Holmes previously, Noel said: “As a rule I’ve not allowed myself to go in with any completed songs, so I am writing in there, it’s happening all around me during the day.”
