Noel Gallagher revealed in a new Mirror article how he tormented his brother and former Oasis bandmate for years over his fear of ghosts. Noel was reflecting on his bizarre days of playing with Oasis as they tried to make the follow up to What’s The Story Morning Glory during drunken and drugged up days at recording studios in autumn 1996.
They had become paranoid that they were being followed while they recored at The Farm in Chiddingfold, Surrey.
“Because it’s on a farm, there’s lots of farm people knocking around, we’d always be suspiciously looking out their window, admittedly high as a fucking kite thinking, ‘sheep’s got a camera. Don’t like the look of that pig.’”
However Liam was the butt of the band’s jokes thanks to his obsession with poltergeists.
Noel recalled: “It’s highly amusing and if we were ever anywhere remotely spooky, we’d tell Liam that the house was haunted, particularly his bedroom.”
“We convinced him his bedroom was haunted, so when he’d get up in the morning and go and have his breakfast, someone would go in and turn the pictures back to front, or fucking move a lamp beside his bed across the other side of the room.”
“He’d arrive pale: ‘Have you been in my fucking room?’ ‘No, why?’ ‘You’ve been in my room, because now the fucking lamp is in the toilet.’ ‘No way, fucking hell. Wow.”
“Yeah, that was amusing. That was worth it.”
