Liam Gallagher Has No Plans to "Chill Out About Noel" or Make Music That Sounds Like Radiohead
Published Aug 23, 2016In addition to reissuing Be Here Now this fall, Oasis will also be the subjects of a new documentary titled Supersonic that's out in October. In the lead-up to the Britpop band's revival — but certainly not their reunion — former frontman Liam Gallagher spoke to Q about his never-ending brotherly feud with Noel Gallagher and some new material he's been working on.
In the interview, Liam Gallagher doesn't restrain himself when it comes to criticizing his older brother's posh lifestyle and choice of celebrity friends. "Whatever next? Robbie Williams turning up on his next record? I'd have to send the police round," he said.
"Put it this way, Noel lives in a £17million house," he continued. "That changes you, I reckon. You have appropriate furniture, appropriate kitchens, appropriate red wine that Bono's recommended. And Damon Albarn becomes your mate. Fair dos, but not for me."
He also insinuated that he won't be backing off trolling his brother on Twitter any time soon. "Lots of people say I need to chill out about Noel," Liam said. "Not until they stop Twitter. That cunt will always get it from me."
Lately, "getting it from me" seems to entail frequent use of the word potato.

As for interacting with his own new neighbours, Liam revealed that he lives down the road from celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, but hasn't been cozying up to the guy. "I got told off for throwing stones at his windows pissed-up, asking him to chuck down some bacon rolls," he told Q.
Before the end of the interview, Liam also opened up about his latest musical ambitions, divulging that he's written about 10 or 11 songs that are ready to be recorded.
"They've got flair, attitude, the melodies are sick and the words are fucking funny," he explained. "It's a record written by me, that's got all the right ingredients and sounds well tasty. You won't be scratching your chin. It's not Pink Floyd and it ain't Radiohead. It's chin-out music."
While we wait to hear what that sounds like, watch Oasis's recently unveiled alternate video for "D'You Know What I Mean?" below.
