Noel Gallagher Announces New Albums & Reason For Oasis Split

Noel Gallagher has revealed that brother Liam “nearly took his face off” with a guitar on the night he quit the band.

Noel walked out on Oasis in August 2009 after a fierce argument backstage at the Rock En Seine festival in Paris and has now revealed that after a storming row, brother Liam came back into the band’s dressing room and was “wielding a guitar like an axe.”

Speaking earlier today at a press conference, Gallagher said of the incident: “He’d gone into his private dressing room and he’d picked up this guitar. He came back in and he was wielding it about like an axe. He was quite violent. At that point there was no physical violence but there was a lot of World Wrestling Federation stuff. It was an unnecessarily violent act and he nearly took my face off.”

Gallagher also responded to a question about whether he’d left Oasis as he’d achieved everything he wanted by saying: “I hadn’t had enough of Oasis, I’d had enough of Liam.”

The guitarist added that he regretted walking out on the band in the way he did, because he now believed they could have stayed together after a long break.

He added: “We only had two gigs left. I wish we’d done those gigs, gone away, gone on hiatus and done our own thing and maybe it wouldn’t have happened. But then Liam always said he would bring down Armageddon eventually.”

Gallagher also said that relations with his brother were still not good, adding: Liamdoesn’t like me. I don’t get on with him but he doesn’t like me in a very violent way. I did everyone a favour when I left.”

And what of Liam’s response to all this? Well, after last night’s comment from the stage at Camden’s Roundhouse (“Are you ready for the party political broadcast tomorrow? Are you? Well, we like rock ‘n’ roll”) he sent out a one-word tweet this afternoon. It simply reads: ‘SHITBAG’

Noel announced earlier today that he will release two solo albums over the next 12 months. The first, which is titled ‘Noel Gallagher And The High Flying Birds’, is out on October 17.

Musicians appearing on the records include ex-Oasis keyboard player Mike RoweThe Lemon Trees‘ Jeremy Stacey and American percussionist Lenny Castro, best known for playing on records by The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder and Elton John.
