Liam confirms intention to do solo record

Liam Gallagher says his songs with his new band are better than Oasis
The 37-year-old singer has been working with every member of Oasis, except brother Noel who quit the group in August, on fresh material and plans to have an album out by July.

He told MTV Italy: "We've been demoing some songs that we've had about, that we've had for a while. Just doing that, on the quiet, not making a big fuss about it.

"After Christmas we might go in the studio and record them and hopefully have an album out in July.
"We'll do it in a different kind of way now. I'll try and reconnect with a new band, new songs, and I'm feeling confident about the songs.

"I'm feeling a million per cent confident that they could be better than Oasis."

The band broke-up last summer after Liam's older brother Noel quit following a backstage fight before a concert in Paris, France, which saw them smash up each other's guitars.

However, Liam believes his guitarist sibling used the fight as an excuse to leave so he could work on his own solo project.

He explained in an interview with Italian radio station Radio Deejay: "To be quite honest, I think Noel wanted out.

"We had an argument - but we've had bigger ones, about more important people. Basically, I think he wanted out, wanted something different, but he hadn't got the b******s to tell the band or the fans."

Who was the Fat Dancer from Take That?

The Fat Dancer from Take That” was the name given to Robbie Williams by Noel Gallagher in 2000 when they were in the middle of a public slanging match. Noel is famous in some parts for his quips and quotes. Some are designed to generate publicity and some are just mean. Wishing Damon Albarn from Blur would die of aids was perhaps his most vile comment of them all.

Robbie responded to the fat dancer comment by calling Noel a "mean spirited dwarf". The comments continued and escalated when Noel offered Williams a gun so that he could kill himself.

This was all following how Williams was befriended by both Noel and Liam Gallagher, at the time when their band was the world’s most popular. Paranoid and taking too much cocaine, according to Mr Williams, they fell out in proper rock star fashion – through the press.

The reference to Robbie being a fat dancer is now a tad ironic as though Robbie had become a successful singer in his own right at the time the comment was made, he went on to become a major solo artist, being just as popular as Oasis in their hey day.

In 2009 the last laugh could be on Robbie as Oasis split up leaving Noel open to quips that he’s just that old cranky bastard from Oasis. Still, the rumours abound that Robbie is going to rejoin with the reformed Take That so we'll see what commnet Noel makes if that happens...
