Ex-Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher to start a new band

Singer reveals that 'I don't want to do anything solo'

Ex-Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher is going to start a new band.

The singer, whose brother Noel has already confirmed plans to go solo, is planning to start a new outfit in the New Year.

“Getting away from the whole Oasis thing is going to be a good thing I suppose,” Liam told The Scotsman. “I don’t want to do anything solo. I want to be in a band. But we can do things a lot differently these days. It’ll definitely be rock ‘n’ roll.”

Despite planning to take a break from music, the singer said he could launch a new band as early as January.

“For now, I’ll be relaxing at home, just getting out of music for a bit and then I’m going to start up something maybe after January, do something different, see where it goes,” he explained. “But I’ll be having a breather from the music for a bit without a doubt.”

Oasis split in August after Noel quit the band, but despite everything that has gone on Liam admitted that he is going to miss the band.

“I’m always going to miss Oasis. It was my fuckinging thing, you know what I mean? It’s who I am,” he said. “But it’s only a name. I’m still who I am and I can go and do something else. I’ve got music in me. I’ll never leave it behind but we’ll see where it goes. It might be shit but you don’t know until you try.”

Currently promoting his Pretty Green clothing line, Liam also revealed his passion for music is unchanged despite his current shift in focus.

He said: “We’re doing the Pretty Green stuff, but you don’t just do 18 years of music and then go, ‘Right, that’s it, I want to do fucking clothes.’ There’s no point in looking cool and having no tunes is there?”
