Noel Gallagher hits back at Liam Gallagher’s ‘potato’ tweet comment

Ex-Oasis chief also says he hasn't been on speaking terms with his brother since 1996

Noel Gallagher has hit back at Liam Gallagher’s recent outburst on Twitter in which he labelled his brother a “potato”.

Producer David Holmes described Noel’s upcoming record as “fun” in an interview, saying that “people are going to be surprised” by it.

Liam Gallagher then took to Twitter, seemingly referring to the comments by writing: “FUN is that what you call it your nothing but a YES man remember that GINGE”.

He also posted a photo of Noel with the caption “Potato” and written “FUCK OASIS” in a subsequent tweet.

Responding to the tweet, the former Oasis chief has now told the Toronto Star: “That’s so unlike him. I guess it was 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.

He also revealed that he has not been on speaking terms with his brother for 20 years. Gallagher added: “We’ve not been on speaking terms since 1996. I tolerated him up until he stopped being able to sing. When singing becomes shouting – I switched off then. I was just amassing money.”

Noel went on to give his verdict on the forthcoming US Presidential Election adding: “I checked out Donald Trump’s bets bits on YouTube. It’s him and Clinton, innit? Which pretty much means America’s fucked because they’ve got enough shit on Clinton, haven’t they? Aren’t those two in it up to their armpits? Then you’ve got the comedic genius that is Donald Trump.

He continued: “I don’t really take much notice of American politics. I resent the way you have to know about it. Who gives a shit who the president of America is? And I hate the way they say ‘leader of the free world,’ just because they’ve got the most rockets.”

Gallagher recently slammed the EU referendum in the UK, claiming the public shouldn’t be asked to vote because “99 per cent of the people are thick as pig shit”.

Meanwhile, Noel has also revealed that he has no interest in streaming services like Spotify.

He added: “I don’t stream music. If I want it, I’ll buy it. I don’t need access to 3 billion shit tunes. Someone tried to sell me Spotify once and I was like, ‘Why would I want the entire fucking catalogue of the Kaiser Chiefs? Why would I want access to that? Why would I want a load of fucking live gigs by the Foo Fighters?’ I wouldn’t have it in the house, so why would I want it on my phone?”
