Gallagher To Continue Oasis

LIAM GALLAGHER will call his new band OASIS - unless the rocker can think of a catchy new name by next year (10).
The group split over the summer (09) after Gallagher's guitarist brother Noel quit minutes before the band was due to perform at a festival in Paris, France.
The singer vowed to continue his music career with a new band, and recruited his former Oasis pals, bassist Andy Bell and guitarist Gem Archer.
But Gallagher admits he's struggling to re-brand the new act, and he's considering continuing as Oasis if they can't come up with a new moniker.
He says, "We're not using it (the name) at the moment, but if we don't come up with something else by the time we're ready to release the album it'll be Oasis.
"I'm not going to call myself something ridiculous just for the sake of it. We're trying lots of new names right now, but nothing's sticking so we're just plugging on with the music.
"Obviously we won't be playing any of Noel's songs... Obviously it's going to be different without Noel and Noel's fans will sneer at it but then, you know, if they don't like the music, don't f**king buy it. Don't come to the gig, 'cos you're not going to be hearing Don't Look Back in Anger... But I do like to think that the 250,000 people who came to see us (perform concerts) at Knebworth didn't come just for Noel."
