Noel Gallagher says Liam “is making a fucking mess of things at the moment” and should stick with Gem Archer

In his latest interview with the NME Noel Gallagher also talked about his brother Liam.

The last year has been a really turbolent one for Liam Gallagher with the split of Beady Eye and the court case in New York over financial support for a baby he fathered while married to ex-wife Nicole Appleton.
“He’s making a fucking mess of things at the moment, but we’ve all been there,” Noel said. “I’ve been there. Something like that can be a great thing because you get to the bottom and you cleanse yourself of a lot of fucking shit baggage and you start again. I’m the kind of person that says ‘Fuck it, take it’ and I’ll start again. And that would be my advice to him.”

Asked about the split of Beady Eye, Noel said “They’re a fucking great band but they’re not great songwriters. They needed one great song. Not just a hit single, a great fucking tune. But I don’t think he’ll be out of the game forever.”
He then added: “If I was giving him any advice, I think he should stick with Gem as his wingman, becuse they were f*cking great mates and Gem really understood him. As for a producer, that guy who done their last album (Dave Sitek). It was one great tune from launching something. When I heard ‘Flick Of The Finger’ on the radio I thought ‘this is more like it’ but it didnt go anywere. It was like a four-minute bridge with no chorus. Admitadly a good bridge.”

The last time Noel saw his younger brother was at the Ethiad Stadium on 11th May 2014, the day Manchester City won the Premier League. “I was in the directors box, obviously, and he was outside selling burgers, and one of the directors asked if I wanted to go on the pitch with the team, and I was like, ‘Fucking yeah’ so I went on the pitch and in the tunnel before I said to [club captain] Vincent Kompany ‘Give us your armband’ and he gave me it, so I was wearing it in the bar afterwards, and I was sitting there talking to somebody, and someone came up behind me and tried to take the armband off and I was like, ‘Fucking get off of it’ and it was Liam. And he was like, ‘Fucking hell man you knobhead, you shouldn’t have that, I should fucking have that’. And that’s how it started. And I was like, ‘Oh yeah, alright, and how are you?’ Every time I see him he is still being a bit of a fucking cheeky cunt. And he’s still putting out the persona of the angry barking dog.”
