Suppose we have to mention it – Oasis have split

OasisYes, the football fan’s favourite band are no more. Noel Gallagher has left Oasis after one too many fall-outs with the walking advert for compulsory beatings that is his brother.

Noel posted on their official site “It’s with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight. People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.

“Apologies to all the people who bought tickets for the shows in Paris, Konstanz and Milan.”

Now, Oasis supporters may tell you the band were still relevant in 2009, but apart from monolithic rock shows, they simply weren’t. The fact that Noel quit rather than sack his brother indicates the much-mooted solo album is probably on the way. Although the diehards suspect he has a meisterwork tucked away, he really does have a bit to prove if he wants to be taken seriously as a solo act.

Still, change is as good as a rest and all that, so who knows. All we are saying is that we wouldn’t bet against a really rather lucrative 20th Anniversary Reunion tour in 2014.

Andy Bell and Gem Archer were last night said to be gutted by the news. No bloody wonder.

  1. They stopped being interesting when John Major was still in Downing Street.

    ‘Be Here Now’ wasn’t, as hoped, them dropping the ball for a while but a clear signpost that they were heading for artistic oblivion.

    I’m stunned they’ve lasted this long.
