London : Musician Noel Gallagher has been accused of plotting his solo career almost a year before quitting former rock band Oasis.
Amorphous Androgynous’ Garry Cobain has claimed that he was first approached by Noel in October 2008, when he performed a DJ set at an after-party for one of Oasis’ Wembley Arena gigs here, to create an album with him away from the band, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“We first began talking about working with Noel on a solo album years ago,” The Guardian newspaper quoted Cobain as saying.
“We had remixed the 2009 Oasis single ‘Falling down’ and turned it into a 22-minute odyssey, which he loved, and then he invited me to DJ at the after-party for one of Oasis’s Wembley Arena gigs that October. That’s when we began talking about a solo record,” he added.
Noel quit Oasis after having a backstage bust-up with his brother and bandmate Liam Gallagher before a headline slot at a Paris music festival in August 2009 and released his first solo record, “Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds”, in October 2011.
