Speaking to live4ever in a profanity laced interview, the ex-Oasis frontman made time to talk about the Strokes, Bombay Bicycle Club and Keane.
On Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and the Strokes, Gallagher said: "They're alright, but they're not writing f---ing proper tunes, they're not writing classics -- anything that can stand the test of time like the Beatles or the Stones. The only people that were doing that was us and we will continue to do that in different ways but the scene in England, there isn't one man. They're all f---ing into careers man, they're all just like fast food, having one hit ... They go and have one f---ing hit and the next week they're in f---ing rehab. 'My F---ing Drug Problem', by Tom Chaplin [Keane lead singer] or something."
Gallagher added, "What do you want me to say? Do you want me to say I like Bloc Party? Do you want me to say I like ... I don't even know who the new bands are. Do you want me to say I like Fire Flies [Friendly Fires?]? Or Arcade [Fire]... or f---ing Bombay Bicycle [Club] -- they can f--- off with that name for a start!"
There is, however, one band Gallagher does appreciate. "I think Kasabian are great. There's enough s--- you know -- I say enough about bands. They are good band, a top band ... Kasabian are the best band in England at the moment. Until my new band comes out ... and that's the f---ing end of that."
In a long interview Gallagher also found time to talk about his new project he's been working on in the wake of the dissolution of Oasis in August 2009.
"[It's going to be ready] Next year. It's looking that way because we got Oasis singles, all 27 of them, coming out in June. So, we'll be recording our album then, or will have finished recording it. So, I'd like to have a single out in October, followed by two fantastic B-sides and then have Christmas off, put another single out at the end of January, maybe another one in March and then get the album out in June of next year."
