Liam Gallagher has taken a pot shot at Mumford and Sons by saying they look like "they've got fucking nits".

The Beady Eye frontman was talking to Q magazine when he took aim at the multi-award winning folk-rock band. It's clear Gallagher isn't a fan of the band, as he ripped into them with his iconic wit.

He said:

Everyone looks like they've got fucking 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.


"Everyone's fucking Don McLean — far too many acoustic guitars, no style," he continued. "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 fucking stools for me, sweetheart."

Liam Gallagher recently revealed that Beady Eye are "definitely experimenting" on their new album. Last month, the band announced that they have returned to the studio with a surprising choice of producer - Dave Sitek. Sitek is best known as a member of TV On The Radio, but his production work includes albums by Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Foals.

Discussing the band's new album, Gallagher said: "I hate the word 'experimenting', but we are definitely experimenting. In five words, it's 'majestic', 'imperial', 'out there' and, er, what was the other one? Oh yeah, 'heavy'."

Beady Eye released their debut LP, 'Different Gear, Still Speeding', in February 2011. The album peaked at Number Three on the UK albums chart and spawned the Top 40 hit 'The Roller'.
