Anytime a Gallagher opens their mouth with a member of the press around, there’s bound to be fireworks. For the past several years, fans of crazed rants and sibling rivalry have had to rely on Noel for all their batshit Gallagher quote needs. But Liam Gallagher just gave his first interview in three years and he hasn’t lost a step.
It might be surprising to anyone who remembers Oasis’ hard-charging ways, it looks like Liam is looking after his health. The musician told Q Magazine that he runs seven miles every day and occasionally says “Fuck it” and scrambles up a tree.
“Climbed one the other day. I was running on the Heath and I thought, ‘That looks like a nice tree, I’m going to climb that f*cking tree,’” he said. “Climbed it and sat there with my hood up for about 10 minutes.”
He also revealed that he’s working on his own music and a new album of unpretentious rock tunes might be coming in the near future.
“I am not embarking on a solo ‘career’. 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 f*cking funny,” he said. “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.”
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Gallagher interview without a few shots across the bow of his brother. Liam said he’ll go after his bro as long as Twitter exists.
“Lots of people say I need to chill out about Noel,” he said. “Not until they stop Twitter. That cunt will always get it from me.”
He added that he thinks Noel has gotten a bit too high-faluting for his tastes.
“Put it this way, Noel lives in a £17million house. That changes you, I reckon,” he said. “You have appropriate furniture, appropriate kitchens, appropriate red wine that Bono’s recommended. And Damon Albarn becomes your mate. Fair dos, but not for me.”
