Noel Gallagher has said that an Oasis reunion is looking as unlikely as ever, thanks to his “moron” brother’s online behaviour.
The Mancunian brothers have been infamously embroiled in an intense sibling rivalry since their band, Oasis, dramatically split up in 2009, just hours before a festival appearance.
Noel said that every tweet posted by Liam is a “nail in the coffin” for a Britpop comeback – further dashing fan’s hopes.
He added that Liam, who is currently on a solo tour, would have to put his whole life on hold in order to reunite the group, and that he would not get on stage with his “moron” brother.
Sara MacDonald, Noel’s wife, is currently feuding with Liam, after she alleged he sent her threatening messages – something Noel said is blocking chances of an Oasis reunion.
Speaking to The Big Issue, Noel said: “It’s strange behaviour for someone who is gagging for me to pick up the phone and say let’s do it.
“He’d put his whole life on hold to get Oasis back together.
“But every tweet he sends out, it’s another nail in the coffin of that idea.”
Speaking at Liam directly, he added: “If you think for one minute I am going to share a stage with you after what you’ve said you are f****** more of a moron than you look.”
Noel, who now fronts his High Flying Birds group, said that people tell him that he is “loved” by his brother – which he refutes, saying he thinks Liam’s comments come from a “place of hate”.
Liam is outselling his brother in terms of albums and tickets, which Noel admits, but he warns him to “ride it until the wheels come off”.
As well as upsetting fans of 90s Britpop, Noel clarified his position on Brexit in the interview, saying he is against a second referendum, and that the vote to leave the EU should be honoured.
He had previously outed himself as a remain voter, but added: “None of us were even qualified to vote”.
Talking about environmental issues, he said that people concerned about climate change are just as guilty over it as the older generation that is often scapegoated.
He said: “I don’t think the world is gonna change until it is at the absolute brink of disaster and then we will pull back.
“And in any case, our generation invented the internet. That generation should invent something that saves the f****** world.
“They’re the first generation, actually, who have grown up with gadgets, driven round in 4×4’s and had f****** air conditioning all their lives.
“So actually if it’s anybody’s fault it’s their f****** fault.”
