Liam Gallagher: ‘Oasis will only reform when we’re fucking skint’

Singer also reckons Beady Eye's debut will be the 'best album for the next 50 years'

Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has said his former band will only get back together when they’re “fucking skint”.

The singer, who is currently recording his debut with his new band Beady Eye, dismissed any chance of his group getting back together in the near future at the launch of his first Pretty Green pop-up store in London today (July 30).

“The only reason why Oasis will come back is when we’re fucking skint. I’m far from skint as you can tell – and I won’t be skint for a long, long fucking time. Believe me, it ain’t gonna be happening,” he said.

His comments come after he recently said that although he was initially “gutted” about the Oasis split, it was “the best thing that’s ever happened”.

He also claimed Beady Eye – which features former Oasis men Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock – have written the “best record you’ll hear for the next 50 years”.

“We have this tune and it was a bit Rolling Stonesy, and I didn’t like it,” he said of the recording sessions for the group’s debut album, which is due out next year. “It was slow and boring. So we just got on a piano and fuck it up, Jerry Lee style, and stuck a John Lennon vocal on the top. It’s good.”

Gallagher also admitted that his priority at the moment is perfecting his new Beatles biopic based on Richard DiLello‘s EMI memoir The Longest Cocktail Party, which charts the story of record company at the end of the 1960s.

“It’s a good book and we can’t balls it up now so the heat is on,” he told Sky News. “I’m more worried about getting that book right than getting the clothes right, and my record right. I’m not going to be in the film but I’m worried about getting it right, because it’s other people’s lives.”
