Liam Gallagher: 'Mumford & Sons Look Like They Have F**king Nits'

Liam Gallagher has ruined his chances of ever being invited to a barn dance.

The Beady Eye frontman has laid into multi award-winning folk band Mumford & Sons.

It’s a rant up there with his finest taunts of fellow music stars.

Liam said: “Everyone looks like they’ve got f***ing nits and eat lentil soup with their sleeves rolled up.

“They all look like they live on the heath. Maybe that’s where they record.”

It’s not just the band’s appearance that riles Liam.

He’s not keen on their instruments either.

He said: “Everyone’s f***ing Don McLean — far too many acoustic guitars, no style. They look like they shop at Oxfam.

“I wouldn’t put any posters up of any band if I was a 16-year-old lad. There’s none of that sitting down on f***ing stools for me, sweetheart.”

He didn’t even mention that they all went to posh schools.

Frontman Marcus Mumford won’t feel too downhearted by Liam’s choice words though.

He only needs to check his bank balance to confirm how well the band’s albums and tours have gone down, both in the UK and US.

Besides, Mumford & Sons aren’t the only band to annoy Liam in recent months.

He’s got a few menacing moans about One Direction — although he admits he has warmed to them.

Liam told Q Magazine: “I like them. Fair play to them. Why not, man? They haven’t got a f***ing clue either.

“I met them at the Olympics and their heads were up their ar*es, but they’re harmless.”

Liam is no stranger to winding up fellow stars with cutting comments.

Florence Welch got a dressing down in 2010 when Liam said: “I’m not having anyone with ginger hair making music. She sounds like someone has stood on her foot.”

In 2001 he described Gorillaz as “like three-year-olds’ music — worse than Steps”.

In the same interview he let rip at Victoria Beckham — shortly after she released her autobiography.

He said: “She can’t even chew gum and walk in a straight line, let alone write a book.”

Shame Liam has no plans to put out an autobiography himself.

That would be well worth a read.
