If you were hopeful about those rumours that British band Oasis is reuniting, then we have some bad news for you: they are not.
Any lingering faith in seeing Oasis back onstage together was ostensibly quashed Tuesday when Liam Gallagher took to Twitter in an expletive-filled rant.
Brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher fronted the popular ’90s band, which had hits like Wonderwall and Champagne Supernova.
Noel, who was always perceived as the more “level-headed” brother, apparently wasn’t very resistant to the idea of a reunion; it was allegedly Liam who refused. Either way, the boys aren’t getting back together unless there’s money involved.
“Nobody has made us an offer. I’ve been in the same room as Liam, and even then nobody’s said, ‘Weren’t Oasis great? You should re-form,'” Noel told British publication QTheMusic. “But if I was ever going to do it, it would only be for the money. This isn’t me putting it out there, by the way. Would I do it for charity? No way. We’re not that kind of people. 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.”
It seems even this scenario is unlikely, given Liam’s Twitter rant; he started by calling his brother a potato — twice.
He kind of stops making sense here, but it keeps going on.
And in case he wasn’t clear, he ends with a resounding, definitive statement.
So we’re pretty certain we won’t be hearing any Oasis reunion music any time soon. (Liam’s new band, Beady Eye, announced their breakup in 2014.)
A documentary by the makers of the Amy Winehouse docufilm, Amy, have created an Oasis doc called Supersonic, which is being released in the U.K. in October. It’s not known if it will have a Canadian release date.
