Well, they haven’t talked to each other in three years, and they’ve doubtless hated each other for much longer: Liam and Noel Gallagher. Everyone who knows Britpop knows how these brothers have been constantly fighting for the better part of two decades, probably longer. Odds are that they’ll probably never get along due to environmental factors: they were exposed to each other as kids, after all.
Well, it appears that Liam has read the interview where Noel has made reference to a possible reunion of Oasis, and, if the interview he just gave Q Magazine is any indication, he is clearly pissed about it:
Quoth Liam: It was Noel who started that rumour, I’ve never said a fucking dicky bird. Fuck Oasis as far as I’m concerned and fuck Noel Gallagher. The thought of going onstage with that fucking idiot and hanging out with his daft mates, the pretend drug addicts and all his snobs from Sloane Street. Fuck that, not interested, mate. We’re Beady Eye all the fucking way.
Beady Eye’s second album is currently being finished, and is expected to be released sometime this year; given that I’m writing this in the early days of January 2013, this might not mean much.
On his brother’s band, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, he said, “Was I pleased for him? What, for splitting up my fucking band? I’m not pleased for him, no! I hope he’s fucking happy but he doesn’t look it.”
On a lighter note, Noel Gallagher has had yet another interview where he said that he believes God would likely be a big fan of Oasis. In an interview with The Sun, Gallagher has said that when he meets St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, he’ll say something to the effect of: ““I’d say, ‘You’ve heard Don’t Look Back In Anger?’, and they’d say, ‘Of course’. I’d say, ‘Look it’s me, let us in. I can play you a tune. I robbed some stuff, I took a lot of drugs, but I’m all right’.”
There’s no word on whether Noel expects Liam to follow him into Heaven, but he does expect his girlfriend, Sara McDonald, a woman he considers a “real life angel” is a shoo-in.
No word on how the latest Britpop-savy clergy would react to such a theological statement.
