Liam Gallagher Mocks Noel For Blur Collaboration

Liam Gallagher has taken to Twitter to cast aspersions over brother Noel Gallagher appearing on stage with Blur's Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon at the weekend. The one-off performance took place on Saturday (March 23) at London's Royal Albert Hall, where the Noel Gallagher-curated Teenage Cancer Trust gigs have been taking place since last Tuesday.

In his tweet, posted today (March 25), Liam Gallagher says: "Don’t know what’s worse RKID sipping champagne with a war criminal or them backing vocals you’ve just done for BLUE!"

It is unclear quite what Gallagher means by "sipping champagne with a war criminal," but he could be referring to the long-standing animosity between Blur and Oasis dating back to the mid-'90s, or possibly, he could be playing on the fact that Gallagher and Albarn attended The Brits last month as guests of War Child.

Liam Gallagher is, at best, a sporadic Twitter user, recently posting about Justin Bieber ("Wow Yeah Justin Bieber Rules ! LG x") but mostly passing comment on his favourite topic: brother Noel and his "high flying smurfs".

Beady Eye are set to release their second album this year, and Liam Gallagher has told NME to expect the record Oasis should have made after '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?'.

He said: "I'm not saying it's better than 'Be Here Now' or it's going to be this or that - I love 'Be Here Now', I won't have a bad word said about it but when you're selling 20 million records, you've got people there going, 'Oh let's just chuck out that formula again'. So I'm a bit disappointed we didn't ever do it. But this fucking record: we've booted the door off the hinges and steamed right in there, into this other world."

"sipping champagne with a war criminal," - tony Blair reference surely?

I think the "sipping champagne with a war criminal" comment is referring to Noel's meeting with Tony Blair way back when. The "backing vocals for Blue" comment is referring to Damon's support for Chelsea perhaps?

Come on NME, he means drinking with Tony Blair.
