Noel Gallagher: ‘Paul Weller would put my windows in if Oasis reformed’

Gallagher reveals former Jam frontman is against Oasis reunion

Noel Gallagher has revealed that Paul Weller is against the idea of a future Oasis reunion, stating that the former Jam frontman would “put my fucking windows in” if it happened.

In the new issue of NME, which is on newsstands now and available digitally, Gallagher described Weller as “fucking amazing” and divulged that he’s helped the Oasis man work out how to become a solo artist.

“He threatens me that if I ever go back in Oasis that’ll be it between us,” Gallagher said. “He always says ‘You fucking heard all these fucking things about your fucking reunion?’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I know’ and he goes ‘You’re not fucking do it?’ and I’m like, ‘No’, and he’s going ‘Good good good’.”


He continued: “Basically, if Oasis ever did get back together, which is highly unlikely, I’d have to leave London and move back to Manchester… because he’d put my fucking windows in.”

Gallagher also responded to Sleaford Mods’ claims he has “blood on his hands” following the success of Oasis by comparing the Nottingham duo to the Viz cartoon character Brown Bottle. “There’s no joy in that, is there? It’s just two guys, one clearly mentally ill, who’s just shouting like Brown Bottle about fucking cider and fucking shit chicken,” he said.

Gallagher’s High Flying Birds release new album ‘Chasing Yesterday’ on March 2. The album features the single ‘In The Heat Of The Moment’ as well as Johnny Marr collaboration ‘Ballad Of The Mighty I’. It was previously reported that Gallagher had expressed his dismay at the fact that Ed Sheeran will play three gigs at Wembley Stadium later this year, by stating “I don’t think I can live in a world where that’s even possible”. Sheeran later responded: “I can. It’s really enjoyable.”
