Liam Gallagher Wants to Reform Oasis?

Singer keen to "bury the hatchet" for "lap of honour." Once again.

Liam Gallagher wants Oasis reformed in 2014, NME reports.

Beady Eye frontman, who is currently not on speaking terms with brother Noel, states that he would be happy to reform the band for free, although he doubts whether it would actually happen.

"There's unfinished business there. People ask would I get Oasis back together. I'd do it for nowt, but if someone's going to drop a load of f--king money, I'd do it for that too. I don't think we'd ever make another record. I doubt we'll ever get back together."

Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of the release of Oasis' debut album "Definitely Maybe," and Liam would be keen to reunite the group to celebrate that milestone:

"If we do, it'd be nice to do that f--king thing that's coming up (the 20th anniversary) I'd be up for that. But I'd still go back to Beady Eye and Noel would go back to his thing. We could bury the hatchet for a quick lap of honour."

This is not the first time Liam tries to reform the iconic brit pop act: he tried to make the band reunite in 2011, admitting that he was missing Oasis, despite the fact he earlier was sure it's not impossible. The band's possible reunion for an anniversary show was rumored by an insider behind the band, but it was declined by Noel Gallagher later. Though, some time later Noel admitted, that "if the Stone Roses can reunite anyone can."

Anyway, the relationships between both Gallaghers are still remain cold - both Beady Eye and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds were not scheduled into the same festival bill since the 2012's statement about that, Liam called his brother "a parasite" for playing Oasis songs, revealing later, that his Beady Eye act will either play Oasis hits.

Will Oasis reunite this time? And - the most important - do YOU want Oasis back? Share your opinions in comments.

    If they can do an one-off without killing eachother it would be good. Noel and Liam are who they are but they did write some pretty sweet songs and I'd love to see them live.
    I doubt that will happen anytime soon. The bitterness between the Gallaghers has decreased a lot since 2009, but Noel said something like "I've been in Oasis all my life, I want to see how it feels to do what I'm doing now". And honestly, you can't blame the man - I can't even conceive the idea of being in a band for 20 years. But I still see it happening, in a distant future perhaps, but oh well.
    Couldn't care less about the band but brothers shouldn't treat each other like that. They should patch up their petty BS and move on with life. Only have so many hours on earth, kind of pointless to waste it being mad at your brother...
    He said he'd "do it for nowt?" What does that mean, UG?
    Thinking that should be "naught", perhaps?
    "nowt" is a Northern English expression meaning "nothing". Heard mostly in Manchester and the surrounding areas. e.g. "There's nowt on telly so I'm on t'internet"
    TBH, the Gallaghers are one of the few people with the hability to make chavvy vocabulary sound cool.
    John Cooper Clarke even used nowt in a poem. Northern slang is just really cool.
    NAUGHT. Send UG back to bitch school. I mean grammar school.
    "Nowt" is part of the Cockney Slang, you fool! Study some history before telling people to study some grammar.
    Nowt is a Northern English expression from Yorkshire, Lancashire etc. A cockney would say 'Nothing' instead of 'Nowt' but it would sound like 'Nuffink' to your ears.
    It would be special if they got back together for a tour, they'd probably end up killing one another if they tried to make another album or anything. But I'd love to get to see them live!
    The problem with an Oasis reunion is, Liam cannot sing like the good ol days. He ruined his voice about '96 with all the hardcore drugs. So who wants to listen to him butcher all those good songs?
    Of course he does. His band sucks and he wrote like 3 Oasis songs. Sounds like the money might be drying up.
    Just admit Beady Eye isn't what you thought it would be and you've run out of money, Liam.
    I love Beady Eye more than Oasis' final two albums... After Heathen Chemistry, they lost the point. Only Love Like a Bomb was really mega and maybe Keep the Dream Alive.
    The whole "Don't Believe The Truth" era was ****ing mega! Best of their work since the 90's!
    Looks like someone is in need of a little cash? Noel wouldn't care, he'd still be raking the money in from royalties as he wrote all the songs.
    Of course he'd reform for nothing; Beady Eye are shit and he still wants to be the next Stone Roses after all these years.
    Damn. But, if it happens, if it's a one off, where and when would it be? They should do like, "The Last Celebration World Tour", so younger folks who didn't have a chance to see them in their original time can see them now. And this hsould include Brazil, of course, 'cause I wanna see them too.
    I would definitely love to see this band live. But my money says it won't happen.
