And Finally Artist News

Liam Gallagher has a go

Liam Gallagher is continuing in his admirable bid to fill the ‘and finally’ slot throughout the quiet news month that is August, which is such a quiet news month that it once resulted in a CMU Daily controversially being published without an ‘and finally’ story. Just once mind. In 2014. But still, controversies of that scale are hard to forget.

But fortunately, this August Gallagher is in promo mode for that new solo album, so whatever happens there’ll be a sweary Gallagher quote to fall back on.

“The majority of solo stars are cunts”, Gallagher says in a new interview with Noisey, when asked about a previous commitment to never launch a career as a solo artist because he was “not a cunt”. Embellishing on the cuntishness of those solo star cunts, he goes on: “The ones that split bands up because they need their egos fucking stroked are the biggest cunts”.

Gallagher has made no secret of the fact he’d rather be fronting a new Oasis album rather than a new solo album. Though – presumably – he can at least take solace in the fact he’s not having to peddle a new Beady Eye album.

“If someone said to me, ‘OK, get Oasis back or go solo?’ I’d get Oasis back” he says in the Noisey chat. “There’s not enough bands out there. There’s far too many fucking solo stars. It’s shit. This is the last fucking roll of the dice for me. For me to go and get another band back together it’d only be compared to Oasis anyway, so what’s the fucking point? So the solo thing? I’ll give it a fucking go, man”.

And you can’t ask for more than that, can you? At least he’s having a fucking go at it. Are you having a fucking go at it? No. See. Well done for having a fucking go at it Liam. You cunt.
