Liam Gallagher says he called truce with brother by accident when drunk

Back in December, Liam Gallagher tweeted that things were “all good again” with his brother Noel. He later said that they had called a “truce”. But by January it was all off, and now he says that he accidentally said they had made up because he was drunk.

In an interview with The Age in December, Liam said that he’d received a Christmas card from Noel’s management team, which he’d taken as an olive branch. But in a new interview with the NME, he now says that he was just overcome with Christmas spirit.

“It was just a blag, man”, he says. “It was just me drunk. I’m sorry if I’m breaking people’s hearts, but it was just a little drunken thing and that’s the way it is. You should know me by now, you know what I mean?”

That doesn’t mean he’s not open to reconciliation though, as I think you can just about uncover here: “We’re not made up. Listen, I’ve said it on many occasions that I’d love to get Oasis back [together], and I don’t know what I’m apologising for because I’ve got nothing to apologise [for]. He was the one that split the band up. I’ve put it out many times that it’s all cool round our way. Yeah, I’ll have a little pop at him and all that, because I think he deserves it”.

Anyway, the more pressing thing at the moment is Liam’s accusation that the German police pulled his front teeth out with pliers. Not recently, mind, ages ago. Back in 2002, when he and members of his entourage got in a fight in a Munich hotel. Gallagher was arrested after he kicked one of the police officers sent to break things up in the ribs. As well as receiving a €50,000 fine, he also came out of it missing his two front teeth.

In a new interview with The Guardian, he now theorises that the teeth were “pulled out with pliers by the fucking German police” while he was unconscious. Which is, despite the levity he gives the story, quite a serious accusation.

“If I was to hit you in the mouth, you’d think you’d have a fat lip, right”, he says. “I didn’t have a fat lip. I was still fucking whistling while I worked, mate. Here’s what I think happened: it all went down after I kicked a copper at some point in the fucking lobby, I think, because after that I woke up in the fucking nick”.

His theory goes: “I think they give me a whack over the head in the back of the fucking van and I think they’ve just gone, ‘fuck you, you cunt’, later on. Because they were pulled out completely perfect. They were going: ‘Oh, as you were coming up the stairs, you tripped and they whacked on there’. But they’d have broken, wouldn’t they? You don’t fucking have them completely fall out like that. I woke up in a prison cell, handcuffed, no teeth, but I could still [whistle] and no other marks on me. So I’m going: they fucking ripped them out because I did one of their geezers, that’s what happened there”.

It doesn’t seem very likely, but maybe don’t kick any German police officers today, just in case.
