It's the Battle of Britpop Part 2, starring Noel and Liam
Guess Which Gallagher Brother Sold More Copies of His Solo Record
Oasis were no strangers to chart races in their native Britain, famously facing off against Blur in the 1995 Battle of Britpop. That competitive streak returned this year, with warring brothers and ex-Oasis bandmates Noel and Liam Gallagher each releasing solo albums within a month of each other.
 
Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds released Who Built the Moon? last week, so with the first week of sales over, we can finally compare its sales numbers against those from Liam's As You Were.
 
As reported by NME, Noel is currently sitting in the No. 1 spot in the UK, having sold 78,000 units of the album in its first week in his native country.
 
"I'm on a better winning streak than Man City are at the minute," he told OfficialCharts.com. "I'm actually on a par with Pep Guardiola. I'm a bit of a wizard, I often thought I was. I'll see you at the top of the charts — this is where I fucking live."
 
Back in October, Liam also took the top spot when his album was released, and at the time, he sold — drum roll, please — 103,000 copies in the UK.
 
So, although each Gallagher landed a No. 1 solo record under his belt this year, younger brother Liam seems to have triumphed when it comes to first week sales.
 
Never one to accept accolades gracefully, Liam has still been digging into his big brother via Twitter — especially with regards to Noel's recent appearance on the Italian version of singing competition X Factor.
 
As for Noel's thoughts on what he's heard of Liam's solo effort, he recently likened the music to "Adele shouting into a bucket."

If it's any consolation, neither LP landed on Exclaim!'s Top 20 Pop & Rock Albums of 2017.
