Rocker wants to end feud

But Liam Gallagher calls brother Noel ‘snobby, pompous’

The Recorder & Times (Brockville) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Liam Gallagher’s ideal Christ­mas present would be an end to his feud with his brother Noel.

The sib­ling rockers have been feud­ing on and off since they broke up Oa­sis af­ter a back­stage al­ter­ca­tion at a con­cert in Paris, France, in 2009, and their war of words has in­ten­si­fied over the past year.

De­spite his anger at Noel, when asked in an interview with the Evening Stan­dard what his ideal Christ­mas present would be he said, “I’ve got ev­ery­thing, man … No, I tell you what I want: I want our kid (Noel) to come to his f--ing senses. It’s in him, in­nit? That’s what I want for Christ­mas. Yeah, I love him, man. He’s my brother at the end of the day. He’s just a bit f--ing snobby. A bit pompous.”

The broth­ers have both re­leased al­bums this year, and Liam’s de­but solo ef­fort, As You Were, out­sold Noel Gallagher’s High Fly­ing Birds’ Who Built the Moon? in its first week in stores.

Liam said he hoped lower sales of Noel’s record would bring him round to the idea of an Oa­sis re­union.

He said, “Maybe a cou­ple of s--re­views and poor al­bum sales, he’ll soon come round, won’t he? Lis­ten, I en­joy the ban­ter. But I’m f---ing ar­sed about re­form­ing Oa­sis. I’m quite happy do­ing this. Just him com­ing to his senses. He used to be funny but now he’s just ... not bit­ter. Just a bit mean-spir­ited.”

Noel, the el­der Gallagher brother, 50, has ex­pressed fury at Liam, 45, who has reg­u­larly in­sulted him on Twit­ter, ac­cus­ing him of “le­git­imiz­ing ” abuse to­ward him and his fam­ily in a ra­dio interview.

But Liam is un­re­pen­tant, say­ing, “He’s em­bar­rass­ing the s--that’s com­ing out of his mouth at the mo­ment. He needs to have a long hol­i­day with (U2 front­man) Bono.”

At the mo­ment, Liam isn’t ex­pect­ing any Christ­mas rec­on­cil­i­a­tion, as he told the news­pa­per that see­ing his brother isn’t part of his hol­i­day plans. He’s go­ing to rent a cot­tage in the Cotswolds in Eng­land with girl­friend Deb­bie Gwyther.
