Liam Gallagher critiques his contemporaries

Liam Gallagher has hit out at popular bands Radiohead and Mumford & Sons, criticizing their musical prowess and approach to their careers during an interview with The Quietus. 

When asked how he felt about Mumford & Sons winning at the BRITs recently, the Beady Eye front man said:

"they were fucking ashamed about winning and that’s the fucking sad bit. 'Oh, we shouldn’t be here!' Then what did you join a fucking band for then? They bow their heads down going, 'Oh, we don’t deserve it' like a fucking dick."

After changing the subject to musical influences, Gallagher used Radiohead as an example of what he would never do:

"I heard that fucking Radiohead record and I just go, 'What?!' 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! 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?"

Also speaking about the relationship with his brother Noel, he revealed that time is of the essence:

"I’m not sitting here for him to go, 'Oh, I’m going to do my solo career and you guys can wait for five years while I fucking lord it around and have it and then I’ll fucking ring you up if it doesn’t go as well as people expect it to be.' Fuck that! We’re gone! We’re out of here!"

The full interview is available on The Quietus' site, but you can watch Beady Eye's performance of 'Four Letter Word' live from Abbey Road Studios here:
