Contactmusic is delighted by the wit of Liam Gallagher. He, they remind us:
is known for his caustic put-downs
So let's prepare ourselves for an onslaught of wit as Gallagher turns his attention to Florence Welch, shall we?
Ooh, it's going to be a quip...
"I'm not having someone with ginger hair making music."
Oh, ha ha ha ha ha. Ha ha. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Oh, please, give me a moment to pull myself together.
Just in case this brilliant witticism is a little too clever for you, it's a reference to the fact that Florence Welch has red hair, and that... um...
Liam Gallagher is 36 years old.
He does actually manage to be unintentionally funny when he suggests no band has taken Oasis' place:
"People are far off being the best band in England or the best band in the world. There are some good bands out there but there's no one claiming that mantle."
Obviously, there's the humorous belief that Oasis were some sort of pinnacle of achievement in the first place, which is onyl made better by Gallagher's strange belief that the vacuum they've left behind is so huge, it means that there isn't even a best band any more; as if the very concept of being the best band has been abolished in the same way some shirt numbers get retired in sports.
