Asked by The Irish Independent if he ever said the insult, he said: “Absolutely. Boots is a f***king demon.”
He added: “Listen, they have done some great stuff.”
The Fort Knox singer – who releases his third solo record Who Built The Moon? on Friday (24 November) – says he and his wife Sara MacDonald will “never be in the mood” for Radiohead, especially when frontman Thom Yorke sings.
When asked if they are a “party band”, Noel told the newspaper: “No. This is the one thing that I am always going to hold against them.
“My wife has a physical reaction to them, when she hears them. It’s like: ‘No – can’t do it. Once he [Thom Yorke] starts singing. Can’t do it.’
“No, they’re not a party band. But I’ve got some of their tunes on my phone.
“But I’m never in the Radiohead moment where I’m thinking, ‘Oh, a bit of modern angst will do here!.’”
