Indie Britpop Legends Oasis to reform in 2017

oasi

So it really looks like Oasis are reforming for 2017. They just aren’t telling you. Noise11 has heard of one UK rock band from the 90s with a very close connection to Liam Gallagher may have been tapped as the opening act for some of the shows so fans could be in for the ‘ride’ of their life.
The Liam and Noel Gallagher rivalry has well and truly been mended, although a public display of antagonism may work in the favour of publicity.

Oasis last played together with Noel and Liam Gallagher on 22 August 2009 at the V Festival in Stafford. The final song the Gallagher’s played together was a cover of ‘I Am The Walrus’ by The Beatles.

After that the last few years has seen drama between the two siblings unseen since Alexis Colby and Krystle Carrington bitch slapped each other endlessly until Dynasty went off the air.

Oasis released a 3CD 20th-anniversary edition of ‘Be Here Now’ this year. The original album featured Johnny Depp on guitar on the track ‘Fade In-Out’. The new 3CD version featured Oasis performing The Beatles ‘Help’.

Since the break-up of Oasis Liam Gallagher has released two albums as Beady Eye and has a solo album scheduled for 2017. Noel has released two albums with High Flying Birds.
The last Oasis album was ‘Dig Out Your Soul’ in 2008.

Wills and the Willing–Dream in Colour–Butterflies

 

Ian Wills has always had somewhat of a ‘revolving door policy’ on his critically acclaimed band Wills & The Willing. Each of his first two albums featured an almost entirely different line-up, including Jessie Wood (Reef), Rachel Wood (Cirque de Soleil), and guest vocals from the likes of Tom McRae., Harry Collier, & Liane Carrol. Now with a brand new line-up and a bigger, more accessible sound for his third album ‘Dream In Colour’; Wills finally believes that he has settled on a definitive band line-up and has an inspiring set of new songs that will help take the band to a much wider audience.

“BUTTERFLIES”

Inspired by the town of Wotton Bassett and the tearful repatriations, the first single ‘Butterflies’ relies heavily on the musical skills of new full-time ‘Willing’ members Sean Genockey , Charlie Morton and John Hogg (Moke, Rich Robinson, Roger Daltrey). You can not fail to be moved by the cinematic tear stained lyrics that comes from the sword like pen of Wills, coupled with its soaring chorus and emotive production.

“DREAM IN COLOUR”

THE STORY

Ian Wills released his first commercial recording in 2004, when he collaborated with the legendary drummer and producer (Trevor Morais), under the name of “Hundred & 3” – Ian released the track “HIV” on One Little Indian, (Bjork) label. “HIV” featured the late (Alvin Lee) playing guitar riffs, and

(Jean Alain Roussel),  who is  renowned for his work with ( Cat Stevens, Bob Marley, Sting, Vangelis) on keyboards.

In late 2004 Ian formed Wills & The Willing and it was in October of 2005 that Janice Long started to champion the band, when she  played the single “21st Century Love Song” on her highly regarded and popular Radio 2 program. By the Summer of 2006, the band was enjoying strong national radio and media support, and was playing at festivals across the UK, including the much loved and highly respected Guilfest. The highlight for Ian, whilst on the second series of gigs, was in New York, when he had the privilege of sharing a radio show with the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame Legend ( Les Paul), who announced, live on air, that the lyrics of “21st Century Love Song” were among his favourite in recent times.

In 2007, Ian reformed his band, Wills & The Willing, bringing in musicians and friends that he had long admired to record the second album “Heroes & Villains”- the new line up consisted of Ian, Sean Genockey and Charlie Morton, plus part time members The Adj & John Tills, ex Kubb. They released their first single “Skin”, which featured Didier Drogba and Michael Essien. “Skin” was used as part of the football anti racist “Kick It Out” Campaign. Wills & The Willing went on to release the second single “Lipstick” to critical acclaim in 2008, featuring the Mercury Prize nominated (Tom McRae) .

Wills & The Willing went back on the road with the new line up in anticipation of the release of “Heroes And Villains”- they played Guilfest, the Isle of Wight music Festival, The Royal Albert Hall and live sessions at Radio 2. Sadly, just as they were due to embark on a full UK tour, calamity struck as Ian was rushed to hospital and spent two years in  and out of hospital during his recovery process – which resulted in “Heroes And Villains” not being commercially released.
