Former Oasis rhythm guitarist Bonehead has recorded an album with his new band Parlour Flames, which is set for release at the end of this year.

The band consists of Bonehead and Salford-based singer songwriter and poet Vinny Peculiar. The duo are also set to tour the UK and Europe.

Bonehead, aka Paul Arthurs played rhythm guitar in Oasis from 1991-1999. He left during the recording of the band's fourth album 'Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants' stating that he wanted to spend more time with his family. He was replaced in the band by Gem Archer, who now plays with Liam Gallagher in Beady Eye.

In a statement about his new band, Arthurs said: "This is the first time in a while its felt totally right what I’m doing and the music sounds fantastic. Vinny is such a talented singer songwriter and together we have come up with something we can both be truly proud of."

He added: "The album took a while to come to fruition. Core vocals, guitar, piano, bass and keyboard parts were played by ourselves with guest performances from 'Bob the Brass' on trumpet/fugal horn, Semay Woo on cello’s and Anna Zweck [Samson & Delilah] on flute. The drums were played by Chorlton beat-poet in residence Che Beresford [Badly Drawn Boy]. We are really pleased with the results."

Since leaving Oasis, Bonehead has played in Moondog One with The Smiths' Mike Joyce and Andy Rourke. He also DJs and has presented a radio show on BBC Radio Manchester.
