Liam Gallagher has issued a series of tweets urging Oasis fans not to buy the 20th anniversary reissue of Definitely Maybe.
“HOW CAN YOU REMASTER SOMETHING THATS ALREADY [BEEN] MASTERED,” he tweeted late on Friday night. “DONT BUY INTO IT. LET IT BE.”
Liam then wrote several more messages in which he mocked the campaign for the re-mastered album's release and seemed to suggest that he wants to reclaim the Oasis name after what has been a pretty bad year for his new band Beady Eye.
Gallagher wrote: “IT’LL BE ME AS IN LG THAT THROWS IN THE TOWEL NOT SOME ROADIE FROM THE 80s”. According to some fans, Gallagher is claiming that his brother Noel, a former roadie for Inspiral Carpets, had no right to dissolve Oasis.
Beady Eye Drummer Chris Sharrock has described 2013 as the band's “annus horribilis” with guitarst Gem Archer fracturing his skull, and Gallagher splitting with his wife, Nicole Appleton. The band have also split from their management company and have scrapped plans to play the Coachella festival in California this April.
The Definitely Maybe reissue is due to be released on May 19 with a re-mastered edition of the 1994 album, practice recordings, live and acoustic versions, as well as a replica of the band’s original demo cassette.
