Liam Gallagher renews ‘potato’ attack on Noel Gallagher

This time, Liam calls his brother a 'pouting potato'

Liam Gallagher has renewed his potato-based insults at his brother Noel Gallagher.

The tuber-influenced insults date back to May 24 when, at 12:16pm, Liam posted a photo of Noel accompanied by the caption “Potato”. This was in the middle of a Twitter diatribe responding to Noel’s new producer David Holmes stating that the album he and Noel were working on would be “fun…People are going to be surprised by it.”

Liam responded by saying “Fun? Is that what you call it? You’re nothing but a yes man. Remember that, ginge,” later adding “Fuck Oasis” after his spud-analogous retort.

Liam’s latest starchy attack saw him post another photo of Noel at 6:05am, accompanied by the more detailed insult “Pouting potato”.

This was in response to Noel belatedly issuing his own retort to the original “Potato” photo. Noel told The Toronto Star: “That’s so unlike him. I guess it’s about him staying relevant. If you’re him, what else is there to tweet about? How his spring/summer collections are doing for his clothing firm? I’m not sure that warrants a tweet. Should he ever climb out of the ‘Where are they now?’ basket and grant you an interview, ask him. I’m sure you’ll get a typically fucking surreal answer.” In the same interview, Noel added that he hadn’t properly been on speaking terms with his younger brother since 1996.

Since Liam’s band Beady Eye split in 2014, the singer has stated that he has no plans to make a solo album “because I’m not a c***” and has instead stated his upset that the premiere of the forthcoming Oasis documentary Supersonic will be in London rather than Manchester.

Noel plays the final date of the tour to accompany his second High Flying Birds album ‘Chasing Yesterday’ at Brixton Academy on September 6. This follows festival appearances at Kendal Calling, Y-Not, Lytham, Glasgow Summer Sessions, Victorious, Festival No 6 and Electric Picnic.

Liam Gallagher is 43.
