Liam Gallager has admitted to never having heard Radiohead's 'OK Computer'.

The former Oasis and Beady Eye frontman was taking a characteristic dig at the Oxford band when he claimed to be completely unfamiliar with their 1997 masterpiece.

'OK Computer' has regularly topped polls to determine the greatest album of all time. But Gallagher is not having it. He told Q:
I've never even heard 'OK Computer', but anything by Radiohead doesn't make much sense to me. Everyone's going on about Radiohead pushing things forward, but the only thing they’re famous for really is songs like 'Creep' innit?


Gallagher continued: "They then go off-roading for the rest of their career. I just don't get it. I mean, we've all written songs like 'Creep', y’know, them classic songs. So that’s what makes them what they are. 'Karma Police' is alright, but it's The Beatles, innit?”

Meanwhile, he recently blamed Beady Eye's failure to reach Number One with their album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' on Adele, saying: "I was expecting it to go to Number One but it was released in the year of Adele. Never mind, number three will do. We were all happy with it."
