Liam Gallagher unimpressed by King Of Limbs

Thanks to Michael M for pointing out Liam Gallagher's witty and incisive review of Radiohead's King Of Limbs:

"I heard that fucking Radiohead record ['The King Of Limbs'] and I just go, 'What?!'" he said. "I like to think that what we do, we do fucking well. Them writing a song about a fucking tree? Give me a fucking break! A thousand year old tree? Go fuck yourself!"
To be fair to Liam, it's only taken him six months to come up with "it's about a tree? what's that all about then?" At this rate, he'll be writing for Michael McIntyre within the year.
"You'd have thought he'd have written a song about a modern tree or one that was planted last week. You know what I mean?"
In pretty much the same way that you might have expected Liam to be inspired by modern music, or something created this century?

UPDATE: Thanks to the person in the comments who pointed out that the NME piece is dated March 1st. So it's just Liam being slow, but it's unfair to say he was spending six months coming up with the riposte.
