Oasis fans have had a rollercoaster of a week. Although the band split up back in 2009 after a reported brother bust-up between Noel and Liam Gallagher, reunion news has been on the tip of the Gallaghers’ tongues. Liam alluded to the band’s comeback earlier this week when he told a fan on Twitter: “It’s happening.” Noel followed up by slamming the idea before Liam brutally lashed out at his former bandmate.
Liam recently told his Twitter followers that the chances of an Oasis reunion hinge not only on him, but to Noel.
He wrote: “Here’s how I see it the little fella aka potato has done a lot of damage to Oasis as a band / brand he’s got a lot of making up to do.” (sic)
He added: “Not just to me but to you the fans the people that put us where we are tday as you were LG x.” (sic)
These harsh words follow a candid interview with Noel where he solely put the blame on his brother.
While talking to France Inter, Noel was quizzed about getting the Manchester band back together after almost 15 years apart.
Referring to Liam’s comments, he said: “There’s something in the papers back in England today. He [Liam] should get his people to call my people; they know who they are, they know where we are. Stop talking on the f*****g internet, and let’s see what you’ve got to say.”
Noel was further grilled on whether all it would take is a call to bring Oasis back together. He responded: “You would think, right? You would think.”
He then confirmed: “He’s got my number, he’s got my manager’s number, call us. But you know what? He won’t call.”
Noel was then asked why his brother might not call him. He smiled: “But why indeed. Why indeed.”
Since Noel’s comments, Liam’s fans have begun questioning him about the proposed phone call. One asked him: “C’mon then LG, Noel has challenged ‘your people’ to pick up the phone… is your bag still packed?”
Liam bluntly replied: “He ain’t got no people.”
He was asked once again whether he would be calling his brother’s team, to which he replied: “F**k his cowboys.”
This is not the first time Noel has spoken openly about resurrecting Oasis after so many years.
Back in January, he said he would “never say never” to a comeback for the band. With that, however, he did add: “It would have to take an extraordinary set of circumstances; that’s not to say that those circumstances would never come about.”
The frontman of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds did go on to make a stark comparison about the band’s music, however.
Noel said it would be “pointless” for Oasis to get back together because of how successful the band still is.
He explained that Oasis still “sell as many records now” as they did in their prime, meaning the brothers likely get decent payouts each month or year for the work they did back in the 1990s.
