0
Liam Gallagher has urged Oasis fans not to buy the forthcoming reissue of the band's debut album "Definitely Maybe," NME notes.

Writing on Twitter on Friday [Feb 28] evening, he said: "HOW CAN YOU REMASTER SOMETHING THATS ALREADY BEING MASTERED.DONT BUY INTO IT.LET IT BE LG X"

It was announced on Wednesday (February 26) that the album would be reissued to mark its 20th anniversary in May, and will include rare and unreleased recordings. The reissue is the first in the new "Chasing the Sun" series from Big Brother Recordings, with Oasis's follow-up albums "(What's the Story) Morning Glory?" and "Be Here Now" to be reissued later in the year.

Gallagher also used his Twitter to address the issue regarding he and the rest of Beady Eye parting company with his management company Quest and manager Scott Rodger, and took the time to have a dig at older brother Noel who, prior to joining Oasis was a roadie with Inspiral Carpets. Liam said: "IT'LL BE ME AS IN LG THAT THROWS IN THE TOWEL NOT SOME ROADIE FROM THE 80s X"

In a statement given to NME regarding the split, Rodger, who also represents Arcade Fire and Paul McCartney, said: "Beady Eye are one of the last great British rock bands. It has been a pleasure to have worked with them on this album campaign. They are in complete control of their future as a band with many exciting new projects on the horizon. We've just about reached the end of the 'BE' album cycle and it's the right time for the band to make a change. Our paths will cross again in the future I'm sure. I wish them continued success in everything they do."

The 20th anniversary edition of "Definitely Maybe" will be available as a standard CD and digital download of the original album, a three-disc Special Edition version including the rare recordings and demos, a 12" vinyl LP featuring all the bonus CD content as a free download, and a Deluxe Box Set which features the LP and the CDs. It has also been revealed that the band will re-issue their single 'Supersonic' as a 12" vinyl to coincide with this year's Record Store Day on April 19.

    POSTING IN CAPITALS MAKES HIM COME ACROSS AS EVEN MORE OF A LOSER

    I just read that article... and I already can't remember if it was Liam or Noel who I read about.
    bangbang!!
    I am literally never able to remember which is which. It's like "Wait, is it the whiny one? Or the angry one? Or both?"

    The thing is I bet he's got The Beatles' stereo remastered CD's... I love Liam and Oasis but the mastering on their albums is so overcompressed, looking forward to the fresh masters of Morning Glory and Be Here Now especially, it'd be nice to hear them with some actual dynamics!

    I'm confused - its being released by Big Brother Recordings and he's saying NOT to buy it? Wasn't Big Brother started by Oasis, so it's him that's actually re-releasing it?
