Liam and Noel Gallagher want same band

Great deals on musical instruments

Liam and Noel Gallagher are competing for the same backing musicians.

The feuding brothers are both keen to work with Andy Bell and Gem Archer - who were members of their band Oasis, who split up over a fall out between Liam and Noel in summer last year - on their respective new musical ventures.

While Noel is writing a solo album and wants the bassist and guitarist to back him on demos of his material, Liam has formed a new, as yet untitled, group with them both and wants them to rehearse with him for live dates later in the year.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "It's a tricky situation for Gem and Andy.

"They are working with both Liam and Noel. Liam's begun rehearsing tracks for his new project, while Noel has been doing demos of songs as well.

"It's great for Gem and Andy, though. They get paid twice, but it's bound to lead to trouble in the future."

Noel has reportedly already amassed enough material for his solo debut and is ready to start recording. He has also previously reunited with Gem onstage, when the guitarist played with him at a pair of solo shows in March.

Meanwhile Liam has mapped out the plans for his new band, saying they will be less "heavy" than his previous group, and planning an album for next year.

He said: "We are going to be more musical than Oasis. It's not going to be so f***ing full-on, heavy chords, you know? More sophisticated.

"By next June we'll be recording our album then, or will have finished recording it."
