Noel Gallagher: ‘Radiohead have been making the same record since ‘Kid A”

Oasis man still loves the Oxford band though

Noel Gallagher has said he doesn’t feel Radiohead have evolved musically this decade.

Gallagher was speaking to Zagreb radio station Plavi when he admitted he hated being compared to the Oxford band.

“The biggest criticism that the music press have against us [Oasis] is that we’re not Radiohead,” Gallagher said.

“Correct me if I’m wrong, they’ve been making the same record since ‘Kid A’, have they not?”

Despite the perceived attack on Radiohead, Gallagher went on to say he was still a fan of the band’s live shows.

“I like them. Every time I see them live they blow me away, but you know, it’s kind of [like] we make very accessible rock and roll music and they constantly make difficult electronic records.”

The guitarist also revealed that Oasis don’t spend much time planning how their own songs should sound.

“It’s not a conscious thing where we’re like, ‘right, we must write something avant-garde here’. If it happens naturally then we’ll do it. If it doesn’t then we won’t. We do like sitting around strumming acoustic guitars.”
