It only lasted a few weeks, but any hope of an Oasis reunion seems extremely doubtful, according to Liam Gallagher‘s recent flurry of tweets. It appears the tensions between him and his elder brother, Noel Gallagher, have once again escalated according to Liam, who tweets: “Fuck the Truce.”
Fuck the truce
— Liam Gallagher (@liamgallagher) January 7, 2018
The recent outburst comes as somewhat of a surprise to fans, just a few short weeks after the former Oasis frontman tweeted that he and Noel were “all good again.” It appears that Liam wasn’t all that serious, calling out his younger brother, who he insultingly refers to as “rkid,” that The Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft “pisses all over you and the 2 Ronnie’s every day of the wk as you were LG x.”
Liam stands up for Ashcroft and further tweets about bands such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers and U2 referring to them as “undignified.”
Apparently, the tweets were retaliatory to a recent interview with the podcast, Sodajerker, in which Noel Gallagher goes off about singer-songwriters “who when you scratch the surface don’t do any f***ing songwriting.” In the interview, he claims that apart from himself, Liam, and Ashcroft, some other artists who have a team of songwriters behind them include Paul Weller, Johnny Marr, Ed Sheeran, and One Direction.
Earlier this year, Liam Gallagher released solo debut, As You Were, which debuted at no. 1 on the UK charts and performed quite well in the states, debuting at no. 5 on the Billboard Top Rock Album charts. Noel Gallagher & the High Flying Birds also released their third studio album, Who Built the Moon?, which also debuted at no. 1 in the UK, as well as claiming top spots on the Billboard Rock, Alternative and Independent charts.
Over the years the two Mancunian brothers have had many disputes, which most likely began during their childhood, and eventually escalated to the on-stage meltdowns, break-ups, and the infamous “POTATO” tweets. As much as Oasis fans hoped the Christmas truce would last, it appears they will have to keep waiting for now.
