No-asis for Liam Gallagher
Liam Gallagher has revealed the new group he has started won't be called Oasis because it's a ''s**t name''.
Liam Gallagher's new band won't be called Oasis because it's a "s**t name".
The rocker has been busy working on a new album with his fellow former Oasis bandmates - Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock - but won't be reprising the name because he hates it.
He said: "It's not Oasis. That was a s**t name anyway. I'm glad to see the back of it. There's one that we're digging at the moment, but we're going to get on with the music and see how it goes. If we haven't got a better one by then, we'll go with the one we're into."
Liam - whose brother Noel Gallagher quit Oasis last August after a huge bust-up with his rock 'n' roll sibling - also revealed he plans to return to the stage in 2010.
The 'Songbird' singer added: "We'll be on stage this year, without a doubt. We're halfway through the record - the demos, that is.
"We're in the studio this April to see if this producer works out. If he does, we'll crack on with the album through June and July."
Liam's live announcement comes just days after it was revealed Noel will be playing two solo shows as part of this year's Teenage Cancer Trust charity concerts in March.
They will be his first performances since quitting Oasis.
