Liam Gallagher has taken to Twitter to cast aspersions over brother Noel Gallagher appearing on stage with Blur‘s Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon at the weekend. The one-off performance took place on Saturday (March 23) at London’s Royal Albert Hall, where the Noel Gallagher-curated Teenage Cancer Trust gigs have been taking place since last Tuesday.
In his tweet, posted today (March 25), Liam Gallagher says: “Don’t know what’s worse RKID sipping champagne with a war criminal or them backing vocals you’ve just done for BLUE!”

It is unclear quite what Gallagher means by “sipping champagne with a war criminal,” but it’s likely he’s referring to Noel attending a champagne reception at Number 10 with then-Prime Minister Tony Blair at the height of ‘Cool Britannia’ in 1997.
Liam Gallagher is, at best, a sporadic Twitter user, recently posting about Justin Bieber (“Wow Yeah Justin Bieber Rules ! LG x”) but mostly passing comment on his favourite topic: brother Noel and his “high flying smurfs”.
He said: “I’m not saying it’s better than ‘Be Here Now’ or it’s going to be this or that – I love ‘Be Here Now’, I won’t have a bad word said about it but when you’re selling 20 million records, you’ve got people there going, ‘Oh let’s just chuck out that formula again’. So I’m a bit disappointed we didn’t ever do it. But this fucking record: we’ve booted the door off the hinges and steamed right in there, into this other world.”
