Noel Gallagher Finally Responds To His Brother Liam Calling Him A Potato

After staying uncharacteristically mum for weeks following his brother-from-the-same-mother’s impromptu outburst, Noel finally responded to Liam’s allegations of potatodom in a new interview with The Toronto Star.

And when asked about what he thought may have caused his baby bro and former Oasis bandmate’s spontaneous spud-based sledge, Noel offered the following:

That’s so unlike him. I guess it was about him staying relevant. If you’re him, what else is there to tweet about? How his spring/summer collections are doing for his clothing firm? I’m not sure that warrants a tweet. Should he ever climb out of the “where are they now” basket and grant you an interview, ask him. I’m sure you’ll get a typically fucking surreal answer.

… We’ve not been on speaking terms since 1996. I tolerated him up until he stopped being able to sing. When singing becomes shouting — I switched off then. I was just amassing money.

… I’ve always been a loner anyway, even as a child. I prefer my own company. I’m literally the only person who can put up with me.

During the same interview, Noel also dished up some of his trademark BS-free think pellets on topics such as social media:

I’m 50 next year. I grew up mythologizing Led Zeppelin and (wondering) what they might be up to. Whereas now everybody knows what Kasabian are up to right now. There’s probably a live blog going on somewhere. Everybody knows what Chris Martin had for breakfast. And if they don’t know, they could find out.

And streaming services:

I don’t stream music. If I want it, I’ll buy it. I don’t need access to 3 billion shit tunes. Someone tried to sell me Spotify once and I was like, “Why would I want the entire fucking catalogue of the Kaiser Chiefs? Why would I want access to that? Why would I want a load of fucking live gigs by the Foo Fighters?” I wouldn’t have it in the house, so why would I want it on my phone?
