Liam Gallagher claims there will be no Oasis songs in his forthcoming documentary because Noel Gallagher, who composed them, has prevented their use in the film.
Liam was replying to a Twitter user asking whether any Oasis songs would appear in the singer’s documentary, Knebworth 22, which will show his return to the festival 26 years after performing there alongside his brother. Liam tweeted: “No oasis songs as the angry squirt has blocked them.”
In the same tweet, Liam also suggested he was “blocked” from using the Oasis songs he sang at the recent tribute to the late Taylor Hawkins from Foo Fighters and concluded that Noel is “a horrible little man.”
Replying to another comment that said “he was praising u on his last interview. This is maddening. The doc will still be excellent tho,” Liam tweeted “what he says and does are 2 different things he’s a sad little dwarf.”
Perhaps mulling on the subject, a few hours later, the singer tweeted: “You can stop us using the songs but you can’t erase our memories shame on you Noel Gallagher.” In response to a tweet asking “Is Noel Gallagher still a thing?,” Liam tweeted “Yes a SAD LITTLE THING.”
Knebworth 22 will be released in UK cinemas on 17 November. In a statement, Liam said: “I’m still in shock that I got to play Knebworth two nights, 26 years after I played it with Oasis. To have played to multiple generations at the same venue so many years apart was beyond biblical. I’m so glad that we documented it.”
Oasis disbanded in 2009 after a final fist fight between the two famously combustible brothers. A reunion has been much mooted, but never materialised.
On Monday, appearing on the podcast Pub Talk, Noel said there was “no point” in the band reuniting as they sell “as many records now” as they did when they were together.
In an interview with NME earlier this year, Liam said: “The last time I saw Noel was at a football match about 10 years ago. It’s a shame, isn’t it?”
Noel Gallagher has been contacted for comment.
