During his performance with the High Flying Birds on Jools Holland last week, Noel had a member of his live band playing a pair of scissors. Responding at the time via Twitter, Liam joked that he had “somebody sharpening a pencil” in his own band. “It sounds mega with a bit of reverb on it proper out there gear,” he added.
Now, ahead of this evening’s Absolute Radio show in the capital, Liam tweeted: “Im looking for somebody to peel some spuds live on stage [tonight] at this gig in Bethnal Green must have own peeler”. Liam’s potato comment is a reference to the nickname he’s frequently given to Noel.
After Liam sent out the tweet, ex-Oasis rhythm guitarist Bonehead, who played in the Britpop band from 1991–1999, got in touch. “I’ll do it,” he tweeted, before sharing a photo of a potato peeler.
