Liam: New band better than Oasis

Liam Gallagher has made an apparent dig at brother Noel's guitar playing

Liam Gallagher has taken a pop at brother Noel's guitar playing, saying his new band are better musicians than Oasis.

The comment appears to be a jab at his sibling, who walked out of the band last year, because Liam's new band Beady Eye has exactly the same line-up minus Noel.

In his first major interview to promote his new act, Liam told NME: "The musicians are better, without a doubt."

He said his brother's departure has given the group more freedom musically, although he was unable to articulate it, and that Oasis were stuck in a rut.

Liam said: "I can actually do more without him. It does feel different to Oasis, yeah.

"It feels like we can do things now that we couldn't have in Oasis. I don't know what, exactly, I couldn't point them out to you but I definitely feel a lot freer and that."

He said the new songs were a match for Oasis's debut album Definitely Maybe, widely seen as the band's high point.

Beady Eye release their debut album Different Gear, Still Speeding on February 28.

Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
