Oasis' Gallagher Brothers End Feud, Band Reunion Reportedly a Possibility

Reunion wouldn't even require "a massive bankroll of money," band's original guitarist Paul Arthurs adds.

Following a nasty feud dating back to 2009, Oasis' Gallagher brothers have decided to burry the hatchet in a most peculiar manner - by opening an indie rock-themed restaurant.

According to Daily Star, Liam Gallagher was the one to initiate the reconciliation after recently visiting his mother Peggy in Manchester. "Then between them they thought Noel should also be brought on board. The brothers are thinking about an indie rock-themed place which serves artisan food," an unnamed source told the paper.

"The brothers are consulting their famous friends such as Russell Brand and Holly Willoughby for advice on the venue," the insider added (via Entertainmentwise). "They reckon a hot new bar could bring them together again."

Furthermore, Noel and Liam decided to give the new place a quite fitting name - "Champagne Supernova," after the band's famous "(What's The Story) Morning Glory" hit.

Speaking with NME magazine, original Oasis guitarist Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs addressed the possibility of a band reunion, dubbing it not as far-fetched as most would imagine. "If someone said, 'Here's a field, here's a stage and here's 200,000 people,' I'm sure Liam would jump up and do it, and I don't think it would even take anyone offering him a massive bankroll of money," the guitarist said. "He'd do it because that's what he loves, that's his passion."

    2010: "I hate you, prick". 2011: "I still hate you, knob". 2012: "I hate you a little less now". 2013: "Same as above". 2014: "Let's run an indie-themed restaurant". Well, that escalated quickly. By the way, I'm still a little skeptical about this. England has got the worst tabloids in this world. Still, if they really packed up their stuff and moved on, then great for them and I'll be glad to hear about it. I doubt that Oasis will reunite in a near future, though.

    "an unnamed source told the paper" 2014: "Lol these newspapers are funny, I still hate you though"

    Pretty much this. That's what you get when you have The Sun and etc all over ya. I can totally understand why Liam beats up photographers/journalists every now and then.

    Depends what's more likely: the Daily Star telling the truth or Liam deciding to stop being a complete cockhat for once.

    Sounds like your mother in law is a cam *****, brother.

    Just saying I've been told that the brothers met at a family wedding and have made up and want to open up a bar in Manchester together, so I'm not saying it will definitely happen but the guy who told me this his dad does actually have contacts and is right most of the time so I'm actually fairly confident this is true.

    They're opening a restaurant? Please, someone add Gordon Ramsay to the mix and make this shit a movie.

    The actual amount of bad English swearing and old English proverbs will be too much to bear

    An indie-rock themed bar? Will they be serving Meat is Murder veggie panini's and homemade Mardy Bum icecream?

    I will have a petentious salad, with "something that doesn't cast a shdow" as an appetizer

    I won't buy into the hype until I see them on stage together. Up next: "Jonathan Davies and David Silveria open a cake shop together"

    David is running a steak house last time I heard.

    And using all his spare time to act like a bellend over the internet basically saying "I'm the reason Korn was so good, they've lost their groove since I left, Fieldy is such a bitch, blah blah blah" Sure, Korn isn't as good as they used to be in the 90s/early 2000s but something tells me he can't really take ALL the credit for their high quality output.

    Going in on a business together sounds like a great way to reconcile! Co-owning something never creates friction!

    Liam probably realised his bands shite and his careers dead without noel

    I'll have the vegan bacon gluten-free pita and a cask-aged Pabst Blue Ribbon served in a red Solo cup, please.

    I mean...****...there's not even a possibility that this is true. This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard
    Brands99
    well this is the first oasis article by UG that actually tells us something important!

    "an indie rock-themed place which serves artisan food" That sounds like a place that would make me want to blow my brains out. These guys fight worse than preteen girls. And they're brothers. They seriously need to get the hell over themselves.
    AlexGreat123
    The Gallagher brothers really are like 10 and 12. They argue over really trivial things then one minute they hate each other's guts. Then they're indifferent, then they love each other
    Brandon1993
    I'm a tad skeptical about all of this but if its true then good. It's good to see them bury the hatchet. Instead of ya know...burying the hatchet...into one another.

    in other words, our mediocre side bands that sound exactly like oasis aren't making money so we're going back to oasis. these guys are so full of themselves.

    Next week there will be an article saying how they close the restaurant cause they hate each other

    Am I the only one that's more excited about seeing Gordon Ramsay visiting that mother****ing restaurant? That will be the best TV in the history of anything.

    "He'd do it because that's what he loves, that's his passion." ... which is why it would take a stage and 200,000 fxcking people. If it was what he loved, and not just the money, he'd have no problem doing it for 200.

    Oh, just f**k off. There's nothing - I repeat, nothing - worse than giving two of the most arrogant wankers in entertainment any kind of publicity at all.

    Ok then this is going to be hard to prove but I have been speaking to my friend who's dad has good contacts with the Gallagher brothers and they met at a family wedding and have made up now and are going to open up are bar in Manchester together, again this is probably hard to prove but my mate does have good inside knowledge so it's very believable to me so just watch this space I will be right.

    If this doesn't prove the whole feud was a cry for attention then I don't know what does.

    Ho god, I hate thoses ****ers !! can't see them, hear them with their shit brittish face...

    February 2014 headline: Noel Gallagher slams rumours about having had any contact whatsoever with his brother Liam. He also shut the door on any possibility of reunion by saying: "No means f*cking NO, you stupid c*nts!"
    Dannym95
    This will probably be followed by yet another article about Noel denying a reunion. Reconciliation? Maybe. Band reunion? Less likely.
