Liam Gallagher has suggested that he is prepared to sign up for an Oasis reunion – but that he won’t go “cap in hand” to his older brother Noel in order to make it go ahead.

The 44 year old singer and former frontman of Oasis has said that the band should never have split up back in 2009, and said that his “bags are packed” in the event that he gets an offer to reunite with them.

He told Sky News at the launch of the new Oasis documentary movie Supersonic, directed by Mat Whitecross and released on Sunday (October 2nd): “If it happens tomorrow, I'm ready, my bags are packed. If it happens in a year, I'm still ready, if it happens in 10 years, I'm still ready.”

However, referring to his older brother Noel, who wasn’t in attendance at the premiere at the weekend, he said that he wouldn’t be offering any apology or olive branch in order to make it happen.

“There'll be no cap in the hand and no banjo, you know what I mean? A little f****** skinny, stringy dog outside his house going 'please sir, I need a f****** band, mate’. If it happens, it happens, if it doesn't, it f****** doesn't, we move on.”

“He won't be here - he's in one of his really, really, really, big houses, probably eating tofu, while having a f****** face peel, ain't that right, man of the people?” he added.

Having defined Britpop like no other band and sold tens of millions of albums around the world, Noel quit the group backstage just minutes before a gig in Paris seven years ago. This effectively ended the band, although Liam formed the short-lived Beady Eye with the remaining members.

Hinting at the aftermath of the split, Liam continued: “He just wanted to do this thing, there is a lot of angst there. For someone to ruin my Oasis career to further his own, we have got to get past that a little bit.”
