"It's about everything the terrorists hate"
“It’s unashamedly a fuckin’ pop record,” said Gallagher. “It’s about the joy of beautiful women, nights out and nights getting fuckin’ high, and all the things that we live in life. All the things that the fuckin’ terrorists hate.
“I reckon if I went to Syria and played it for Isis, it’d all be fuckin’ over. I reckon it’d even turn Trump around.”
Gallagher also made headlines in politics recently when he slammed Jeremy Corbyn and labelled him a ‘Communist‘ – much to the approval of former UKIP leader Nigel Farage.
“Fuck Jeremy Corbyn. He’s a Communist,” said Gallagher. “Trump’s a…a… I’m not even going to name him. But they [Corbyn and Trump] don’t affect my life. Well, Donald Trump, maybe, because his views on the environment are pretty fucking scary, and that will affect my children. But politicians? They’re fucking idiots. They’re economists—that’s all they are. They’re fucking full of shit, and I should know, because I’ve known quite a few of them.”
He added: “I don’t watch the news. The news is fucking boring. So if the world is going to end, I don’t want to know about it. I don’t want to watch the run-up to it. If the sky is going to catch fire because some little, fat North Korean idiot flies a rocket into it, let it fucking end. I don’t want to know about it. I’d rather be doing something else.”
This week has also seen Gallagher team up with Gorillaz and Graham Coxon on stage in London, as well as signing up for a ‘secret’ Twitter account to respond to fans.
‘Who Built The Moon’ is out now.
