Liam Gallagher on ‘Black Star Dancing’, Paul Weller and his new music

Liam Gallagher has spoken to the new issue of Q about Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds new song ‘Black Star Dancing’, Paul Weller and his new music.

He said “Everyone knows I’m bitter and jealous but it’s a Eurovision song. It’s fucking Leo Sayer. It’s not even a good tune, let’s be honest. I’d love to know what his bit on the side has to say about it. Weller’s put out some questionable shit over the years, but I don’t think even he’s gone down the Leo Sayer route. You can’t be making disco music when you look like a potato. You’ve got to be sexy for that”.

He added “He’s in his mid-50s. It’s like me doing opera music. I’d look stupid. I’m sure in his big daft head it sounds amazing, I know he’s trying to do something new, but it’s way off what he thinks it is. It’s embarrassing. It leaves the way open for me to come steaming in with a load of guitars, so crack on our kid”.

Liam Gallagher’s new single ‘Shockwave’ is released on Friday.
