Gallagher released his debut solo album ‘As You Were’ earlier this month, with the record reaching number one in the album charts in its first week.
In a stinging attack on Twitter earlier today (October 26), Gallagher appeared to take exception to comments Weller made in a recent interview with Northern Transmissions’ ‘Records In My Life’ series about his foray into solo music.
Speaking about which new albums he’d been enjoying recently, Weller remarked: “I was lucky enough to get a copy of Noel Gallagher‘s [album] and I’ve really loved that. It’s a great record, I’ve been playing that loads.”
The interviewer then asked Weller if he’d managed to hear ‘As You Were’, to which he replied: “I’ve heard a few songs, y’know. A couple of songs maybe.”
Pressed on what he thought of those songs, Weller said: “I’m glad for [Liam], I’m glad he’s got his own thing together and he’s out there doing it. I’m really pleased on that level.
“Musically, it just sounds like Beady Eye – which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it wasn’t a massive surprise or anything. But I think I’m more pleased that he’s out there doing that. The lyrics are pretty pony I thought, a little bit sub-standard.”
Watch Weller’s interview below, with the Liam comments starting at the 7:15 mark.
Gallagher responded to Weller’s comments in a tweet that read: “I don’t give a fuck what Paul weller thinks I’ve never been 1 of his little bitches and he fucking knows it”.

Earlier this week, Noel Gallagher revealed that he wouldn’t be listening to ‘As You Were’ as he’s “not a fan”.
