Godfathers of Britpop Oasis have joined the stars lining up for the fly-on-the-wall treatment made famous in the hit show “The Osbournes,” which followed rock singer Ozzy Osbourne and his family.

Tour-bus footage of the famously foul-mouthed Gallagher brothers has already been released and singer-songwriter Noel Gallagher told music Web site nme.com he is also keen for cameras to film his domestic life.

“That would be fantastic, but how would you have breakfast with the guy with that big furry thing (the microphone boom) and someone running around after him with the cable?” he was quoted as saying.

MTV’s profanity-prone show “The Osbournes” gained the highest rating on U.S. cable television last month as 7.8 million viewers tuned in to watch Osbourne’s wife threatening to urinate in a whiskey bottle. Since then, celebrities including topless model Anna Nicole Smith and rapper Sean “P Diddy” Combs have said they want to be filmed.

An Oasis spokeswoman said footage of tour-bus life with the had already been released as a 20-minute DVD recording with the single “Hindu Times” and there was more to come.

After bursting onto the music scene in the early 1990s, Oasis scored UK number ones with their first two albums “Definitely Maybe” and “Morning Glory.”
