In an exclusive interview with Q magazine, Liam Gallagher has spoken about his brother Noel being disappointed when Beady Eye split up.
The singer said "Was he? I'm sure he was. I was more disappointed Oasis split up. I wonder if HE was. I've never heard him say he was disappointed about Oasis. No, he's got what he wanted." So when asked What was what Noel wanted? if it was to be a frontman?"
Liam said : "Without a doubt, without a doubt. Jealous, every f*cking soundcheck he'd go stand in the middle and sing. The geezer's got small man syndrome. He never had the nerve back in the day, so he joined my band and slowly wormed his way to the front, got his balls together. Same as Johnny Marr. Get yourselves over to the other side, play your guitars, play it with yer teeth, because there's no place for you over here. You know when your kid puts on make-up on and tries to look grown-up for a laugh? it's like that. They're playing at being frontmen. Get back over there. They look stupid."
"He's a great guitarist, our kid. He looks like Steve Jones when he's over there on that side. Be happy over there. But out front he looks like Don McClean. If he thinks he's Lee Mavers he needs to have another look at himself because Lee Mavers is dark and mysterious and you don't know what's going to happen with Lee Mavers. You know what's going to happen with Noel. His fucking sleeves, rolled up. It's like Dermot O'leary with a guitar. F**k **f. He needs to fuck back over his side of the stage and strike a pose".
On reforming Oasis, he told Q magazine: "I believe Oasis will sail again and it'll be glorious. If it's really about the fans, Noel, let's do it - because they want it. One year. Tour for a year. "We'd smash it. My bags are still packed from my last tour, so I'm ready." However, Liam, doesn't appear ready to bury the hatchet with Noel, as he also accused Noel of being a **** and of having "small-man syndrome". He said: "Do you think I want to be in a band with that ****? He says, 'Liam has to change.'
"Get to f**k....If the guy doesn't want me back in our band then I don't want to either. "I don't want to be in a band with someone who doesn't want me." "Every f**king soundcheck he'd stand in the middle and sing. The geezer's got small-man syndrome."
And he is furious that Noel is now pals with Damon Albarn, frontman of Oasis' one-time rivals Blur. He fumed: "Whatever next? Robbie Williams turning up on his next record? Noel lives in a £17 million house. That changes you. You have appropriate furniture, appropriate kitchens, appropriate red wine Bono's recommended. And Damon Albarn becomes your mate."
Meanwhile, Liam - who is preparing to release new songs next year - claimed to be a "lone wolf" and says his girlfriend Debbie Gwyther is his only friend.
Regarding new music, Liam said to Q that he's working on new music with "two lads I know". He elaborated: "One's a multi-instrumentalist and he can play anything. Not that there's much to play on these songs. One guitar, acoustic. One guitar, electric. Drum kit, keyboard about that big [measures out 12 inches between his hands]. That's your lot. Proper sparse, really pumping. How it should be. We've demoed some songs..."
"I am not embarking on a solo 'career'," Gallagher went on to clarify. "Everyone should know that. There are just 10, 11 songs I've written that are eligible to be recorded. They've got flair, attitude, the melodies are sick and the words are fucking funny. We'll record them this year and release it next year. It'll shock people. 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."
So? Whose side are you on? Do you agree with Liam?
