Liam Gallagher still holds out hope that Oasis will ‘sail again’.
While discussing plans to release new music in 2017 during an interview with Q Magazine – his first since the split of Beady Eye – Gallagher nevertheless had thoughts for his first and biggest love.
“I believe that Oasis will sail again and it will be glorious,” he said. “In the film (Supersonic) Noel says that Knebworth wasn’t really about Oasis, it was about the fans because you can book the biggest venue, but what if nobody had come?”
“And if it’s really about the fans Noel let’s do it, because they want it. One year. A tour for a year. We’d smash it. My bags are still packed from my last tour, so I’m ready.”
Gallagher also re-stated his belief that Noel left Oasis primarily to scratch his frontman itch, but that in the middle of the stage he presents more of a Don McLean vibe than the Steve Jones of his lead guitarist role.
“He’s a great guitarist, our kid,” Liam said. “He looks like Steve Jones when he’s over there on that side. Be happy over there. But out front he looks like Don McClean. If he thinks he’s Lee Mavers he needs to have another look at himself because Lee Mavers is dark and mysterious and you don’t know what’s going to happen with Lee Mavers.”
“You know what’s going to happen with Noel. His sleeves rolled up. It’s like Dermot O’Leary with a guitar. He needs to f**k back over his side of the stage and strike a pose.”
In the feature, Q described the forthcoming Supersonic movie, which charts Oasis’ rise from Manchester to Knebworth, as a ‘masterpiece of a rock documentary’, containing key footage from the band’s early days such as Noel Gallagher first discovering his younger brother had joined a band and the aftermath of their now legendary gig in Glasgow in the presence of Creation boss Alan McGee.
