A live LP is expected at the beginning of next year...

Oasis are planning to release a live album at the start of the next year through Big Brother records.

nme.com understands that Paul ‘Strangeboy’ Stacey is now editing and mixing live tapes of gigs from the band’s recent North American tour with a view to releasing it in January or February.

While no tracklisting has been decided it’s thought the album will be made up of old and new material, and could contain Oasis’ cover of Neil Young’s ‘Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)’ which the band dedicated to Kurt Cobain when they played Seattle Paramount Theatre in April.

Oasis are continuing their European tour without Noel, but last week had to pull out of a gig in Hamburg because Liam had a throat infection. The gig’s been rescheduled for Thursday (June 22).

Speaking to Austrian journalists a week before the cancellation, Liam said: “Here’s the plan. If Noel doesn’t want to come back I am not fucking singing his songs for the rest of my life. We split, we call it a day and we will start a new band – it would be called something else. I am not going to be singing fucking these songs – I will sing my own.”
