Noel Gallagher has revealed that he suggested his brother Liam should continue to use the Oasis band-name after the band's split.

After Oasis broke up in 2009 Liam formed Beady Eye with three former Oasis members Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock.

"I suggested [he keep the name], when we were all still part of the same management firm and all that," Noel told Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1.

"And I was saying for the people, what's Beady Eye all about? It should just be him. You know. It should just be [Oasis]...

"He should have done that when the band split up, but for whatever reason, they decided they were going to start another band and all right, fair enough."
