Noel Gallagher has spoken about the recent Oasis reunion rumours, denying that his band High Flying Birds and brother Liam’s former Beady Eye project would “do a McBusted” and form a supergroup called BirdsEye.
Appearing on Channel 4 show Chatty Man, which will be broadcast tonight (May 1), Gallagher was quizzed by presenter Alan Carr about the prospect of him joining forces with Liam for the comically-named band, a reference to the frozen food company of the same name.
Gallagher replied, “Well, as enticing as that sounds, I don’t think it’s going to happen. Sorry.” He added: “No. No. What more can I say? I’ve got nothing more to say on it that I haven’t already said. It’s not going to happen. No, I can’t be arsed.”
Last month, reports emerged that the siblings have reached a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ to reform the Britpop outfit.
While Noel had previously not addressed the rumours, Liam Gallagher decided to offer a no comment statement on the matter.
Oasis acrimoniously split in 2009 with Noel citing an inability to work with his brother as the key reason. There has, however, seemingly been a thawing in the pair’s relationship lately. Last month saw Liam taking to Twitter to post a photo of himself holding a backstage pass to one of Noel’s gigs, who in turn has publically encouraged his younger sibling to record a solo album.
