Oasis Noel Gallagher

Ex-Oasis brother is "quitting London"...

Noel Gallagher has announced that he's leaving London... to move back to Manchester. The former Oasis man - born in Longsight and raised in Burnage - has said he's had enough of the Capital, which has been his home since the days of 'Definitely Maybe'.

"I'm leaving London to go back up north, to Manchester," Noel told The Evening Standard at last night's Music Industry Awards. "I've been advised to do a Rod Stewart, as in a tax exile, but I don't want to do it. But London has lost its spark."

What do you think? Should Noel move back to Manc, or should he stay in London Village? Leave a comment below.
