Noel Gallagher has revealed that he wants to take a break next year.

The former Oasis chief claims he wants to take time out to avoid making another album like 'Be Here Now'.

Speaking to XFM he added:

I'm taking a well earned break after this. Why mess with brilliance? I'd only fuck it up. Look what it did to the aftermath of '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?'. Shit on it! 'Be Here Now'?


Oasis' third studio effort is widely considered to be one of their worst albums with Gallagher himself describing it as "the sound of a bunch of guys, on coke, in the studio, not giving a fuck. All the songs are really long and all the lyrics are shit and for every millisecond Liam is not saying a word, there's a fucking guitar riff in there in a Wayne's World stylie."

His latest comments come after he recently emphatically ruled out the chances of Oasis reuniting on NME Radio, saying that he wouldn't reform the band, even if "all the starving children in the world depended on it". He added that he has no need to reform Oasis, even though he knows the band's fans would love to see it. You hear the interview below.
