Quick News

Since Noel Gallagher left Oasis, his brother Liam and band mates Andy Bell, Gem Archer and Chris Sharrock are still going to go out an record as a band. However, they may still call themselves Oasis. Liam told England's Evening Standard "We're not using it at the moment, but if we don't come up with something else by the time we're ready to release the album it'll be Oasis. I'm not going to call myself something ridiculous just for the sake of it." Liam and mates are looking to get into the studio after Christmas and hit the road at some point in 2010.

Blur front man Damon Albarn is such a busy man. He has named the upcoming Gorrilaz album Plastic Beach and it will be due in 2010. As previously reported he is penning an opera with graphic novelist Alan Moore. He is also working on a record with Flea and The Good, The Bad and The Queen member Tony Allen and is also looking to prep another The Good, The Bad and The Queen album. Yet, still no word is Blur will tour again in 2010.
