Liam Gallagher insists that an Oasis reunion is coming

The subheading of the story at The NME is pretty clear: Liam Gallagher: “An Oasis reunion’s gonna happen very fucking soon.” Let’s take a look.

“Putting the boot firmly into his older brother, Liam starts on Noel’s current ticket sales, which aren’t a patch on his own. ‘That cunt can’t even fucking sell out Apollo in Manchester – 3000 capacity in his own fucking town, the fucking embarrassing fucking donut.’

“When was the new reunion offer put on the table? ‘It’s not been put on the table; it’s just been booted around,’ he clarifies. But is it a current offer? ‘The last couple of weeks, yeah. It is gonna happen, believe you me – it’s gonna happen very fucking soon because he’s greedy and he loves money and he knows that it’s got to happen soon or it won’t happen.’

“Liam stresses that the alleged offer was for a tour, rather than for new Oasis music, though he’s not against the latter. ‘I’d do a record, but listen, it depends on what kind of record it is. If it’s anything like that shit he’s putting out at the moment, I don’t think anyone wants that. I think people would give you £100 million not to fucking make that record, you know what I mean? They’d just go ‘yeah, look, here’s £100 million quid for the tour and here’s another £100 million quid to not make a record like that.’”

Ah. That clears things up. Not.
