Gallagher forms new band...

Noel Gallagher has formed a new band called Tailgunner and will play low-key UK dates in September.

The three-piece features Noel on drums, ‘Definitely Maybe’ producer and one-time Oasis live engineer Mark Coyle on guitar and vocals and Paul ‘Strangeboy’ Stacey on bass. Insiders say Tailgunner are looking to make their live debut at a pub gig some time next month.
