They’re really not fans of one anotherNoel Gallagher has revealed the lengths he’d go to to avoid listening to his brother Liam’s music, and it really is something.
The former Oasis star had quite the acrimonious split with his brother years ago and isn’t a fan of Liam’s tunes now, after the two went solo from the group that launched them to superstardom.
Now the artist – who performs with his band the High Flying Birds – has shared his thoughts on Liam’s music.
Noel reacted strongly when asked by Absolute Radio presenters Sarah Champion and Pete Donaldson backstage at Isle Of Wight festival if he would rather watch Manchester United win a quadruple (seeing as he supports Manchester City) or watch Liam at Wembley performing only his new music.
‘I think I’d rather eat my own sh*t,’ he replied. ‘I’d rather put shit on a pizza and be force-fed it than listen to that bozo f*cking murder his own songs.’
Well there you have it, we suppose. And the feeling continues to be mutual, after Liam recently admitted he wanted to punch his sibling, as their long-standing feud continues to play out in the public eye.
Noel has made no secret of his distaste for Liam’s tunes (Picture: Dave J Hogan/Getty Images)Speaking to Sky News at the premiere of his As It Was documentary, Liam revealed he ‘didn’t cry’ about the fact he had to take Oasis music out of the film after Noel refused to allow its use, but it did make him want to ‘break his f***ing jaw’.
‘Him and his little people saw it and took the Oasis music out of it because that’s all he’s got left, d’ya know what I mean,’ said the Wall Of Glass singer.
‘Let him get on with it. ‘It doesn’t make me sad, it makes me f***ing mad. I’m not a p***y, I’m not sad about it, I want to break his f***ing jaw and his daft f***ing manager, but that’s what happens.
‘I’m not sad about it, I didn’t go home and cry, I just wanted to go and f***ing put their windows through.’
Anyway, back to Noel, Liam’s music wasn’t the only thing that was grinding Noel’s gears, though, as he bemoaned the state of the world’s festivals and how UK acts seldom see themselves in the headline slot.

‘The Killers headline every festival, they even headline two festivals all at the same time. I did a European tour last year and I did every festival known to man and The Killers or the Foo Fighters or the Red Hot Chili Peppers were on all at the same time,’ he said.
‘If it’s not them it’s the f*cking Kings Of Leon, I don’t know what’s wrong with British music these days but f*cking Yanks it’s all with the pyrotechnics and sh*t pattern in between songs and f*cking hydraulic drum rises.’
