Bugg, who has supported the iconic Manchester band on tour, told Shortlist: “It’s just Stone Roses, innit? I’m not a fan.”
Bugg also defended the fact he co-wrote numerous tracks from his first two albums with professional songwriters, something which Noel Gallagher once said he was “f**king heartbroken” about.
“I don’t care, to be honest,” Bugg said. “If I didn’t agree to [write with other people] in the first place, I wouldn’t have got a record deal. People call it selling out, but if you don’t compromise, you might not get a chance to continue playing music. And on this record [new album ‘On My One’] I didn’t write with anybody so it gave me the chance to experiment.”
Bugg previously spoke to NME about Gallagher’s “f**king heartbroken” comment, saying: “Noel’s last album is pretty crap though, innit? I’m not upset about it because it’s just Noel – he’ll slag off Ed Sheeran and then be at a party with him the next week. It’s just the way he is.”
Bugg’s new album ‘On My One’ is released this Friday (June 17). He will support it with a UK headline tour taking place this October and November.
