They may have broken up some 18 months ago, but in an interview with the Guardian ostensibly about Beady Eye, Liam Gallagher opened up, (partially) taking sharing the blame with his older brother Noel for the band's demise.
Liam started by saying: "Me and our kid [Noel] were to blame for the split of Oasis."
However, he soon changed tack. On the mention of Noel's statement on quitting, where Noel blamed a lack of support and intimidation, Liam was not quite so magnanimous.
"Absolute f---ing bollocks. That's the thing that makes me want to throw up. I just look at him now and think, 'You're a f---ing fake.'"
He added, "It's like, if you want to f---ing leave the band, leave the band. If you want to stay at home with your kids, stay at home with your kids. If you wanna have five years off, have five years off. We'll sit down as a band and talk about it. But don't start going, 'I was bullied out of the band.' F---ing shite."
Despite appearances, Liam is trying to move on, with Beady Eye's debut album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' out on Feb. 28. The band formed in the wake of the Oasis split in August 2009, with the other members of the group -- Andy Bell, Gem Archer and live drummer Chris Sharrock -- staying on to form Beady Eye.
Liam saw the signs of the split coming for a while before it happened. Given Oasis's tumultuous history, however, it's hard to say how much of a change from normality it was.
"Noel was removing himself from the band, travelling separately, even though they [the media] were saying I was. And you couldn't speak to the f---er. Minute you brought something up, it was just a stony-faced, 'What are you gonna do about it?'
"He didn't like people standing up to him. So he grabs the ball and does a f---ing runner."
