Noel Gallagher has apologised for "ruining dance music".

The High Flying Birds frontman has said that it occurred to him when raving at Coachella that the shift away from house music towards guitar bands in the 1990s happened after Oasis became massive.

"One of the best nights I've had out recently was at Coachella," he tells Q. "We were up till seven o'clock in the morning, listening to those classic house tunes, going, 'Why did music have to change? Why couldn’t it have stayed like this?' Then someone said, It’s because of you! And I was, 'Yeah, sorry about that'."

Speaking about his track 'AKA... What A Life!', he said he thought the track was his danciest to date. "It's taken me 20 years to write a song which could've actually been played in the Haçienda!" he said.

Earlier this month, the former Oasis chief revealed that he wants to take a break from music next year, because he doesn't want to make another 'Be Here Now'. "I'm taking a well earned break after this," he said. "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".
