Alan McGee on what it would take for Oasis to reform
Alan McGee does not believe the feuding between estranged brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher will come to an end anytime soon.
While calls for an Oasis comeback have been speculated repeatedly in recent years, a consisted back and forth of insults posted on social media by both Gallagher brothers have all but put an end to any chance of a reunion.
When discussing what he believes it would take for Oasis to make a return, former Creation Records founder Alan McGee said: “They’re not going to get back together at any time soon, but the only thing that might happen is the circumstances might change in people’s lives,” in an interview with NME.
McGee, who signed Oasis to Creation back in 1993, added: “I don’t want to say what I think that might be, but it could be anything, it could be bad news and then they’re thrown together and then suddenly it’s like: ‘I don’t hate.’ But at the moment I can’t see it anytime soon.”
The talk of Oasis and Alan McGee’s Creation Records arrives as he becomes the subject of a new film which is in the works by the team behind Trainspotting.
The infamous record label, well known for being the brains being iconic releases from the likes of My Bloody Valentine, Oasis, the Jesus and Mary Chain, Slowdive, Primal Scream and more, has recruited Danny Boyle to produce the film.
Furthermore, Irvine Welsh and Dean Cavanagh have been brought on as screenwriters for the project. Nick Moran known for his work on Telstar: The Story of Joe Meek and The Kid, will direct the film.
The film, given the working title Creation Stories, is based off Alan McGee’s memoir: The Creation Records Story: Riots, Raves and Running a Label.
“It’s like ‘Trainspotting does Creation’, if you can get into that concept,” McGee told NME. “There’s one scene where there are two Sony executives fucking each other up the arse and I’m there watching. I think it’s going to be quite funny.”
“My book is pretty much what happened. The actual film is Irvine’s fucking version of it. It’s got me and my dad walking into the sunset, but I haven’t fucking spoken to my dad for 30 years so it ain’t gonna be that realistic.”
“I’ve been lucky to work with both Danny and Nick over the years and to have the two of them together on this project, along with Ewen, feels like a lottery win.”
