Noel Gallagher on his solo career: “I lost a fucking shitload of money.”

Since he left Oasis, Noel Gallagher says he has lost a “shitload of money”.

In fact, as he told to Loaded, he does not have a record deal (he is signed to his own Sour Mash imprint) and he had to fund everything himself.

“Everything I’ve done since I left Oasis has come from my own pocket,” Gallagher said. “You’ve got to pay for the tour, got to pay for the wages and you don’t really break even for about nine months. I don’t mean I lost money. I mean I lost a fucking shitload of money. It was a few million, like. I had to lie to Sara [MacDonald, wife] at first, and when I eventually did tell her, she freaked out – I mean FREAKED out.”
“I did it because I felt like I could and I didn’t want to be signed to a record label, I wanted to do it myself. Luckily enough it’s worked out.”

Noel Gallagher has also announced details of his next single ‘Riverman’. It will be released on May 11, backed by the B-side ‘Leave My Guitar Alone’ (read more here).
