News: Oasis break up over the weekend

News has been posted on the official Oasis website detailing the recent breakup of the legendary rock band.  A statement from Noel Gallagher reads simply, “It’s with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight. People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.  Apologies to all the people who bought tickets for the shows in Paris, Konstanz and Milan.”

The band broke up just minutes before they were due onstage at a French music festival, after another infamous row between the brothers Gallagher.  Festival organizers announced to the crowd that the brothers had “had a fight backstage,” and “the group no longer exists. They will not play tonight and they are canceling the rest of their European tour.”

The band have previously broken up while on a world tour, again as a result of brotherly friction causing Noel to leave the band.  Fingers crossed the boys resolve their issues, but I won’t be holding my breath on this one.  In the meantime, here’s my favourite video by a grand institution of British rock:
