Liam Gallagher Accuses Noel Of 'Swiping' Oasis Songs For Solo Album

In this ever-changing world we live in, one thing music lovers can always count on is that the feud between brothers and ex-Oasis bandmates Liam Gallagher and Noel Gallagher will never die. The famous Gallagher brothers are in the news once again. Contact Music is reporting that in the newest issue of Uncut Magazine, Liam accuses Noel of stealing songs from Oasis jam sessions for his upcoming album. "I've heard his f---king new record 'cos I f---ing sung on half of it!" Liam, who now fronts Beady Eye, says his brother is using stolen tracks recorded for the group's album "Dig Out Your Soul" for his solo LP. "When I was in America for 'Dig Out Your Soul' he swiped some [tracks] off it because he obviously knew he wanted to do a solo album. So he can talk all the bulls--t about, 'Oh, I was intimidated,' and all that. F---ing nonsense. Behave. He knows. The people know. And I know. So no, it's not better and it won't get any f---ing better." Oasis broke up in 2009 after Noel Gallagher quit the band following a backstage fight with his brother before a performance at Paris' Rock en Seine festival. Thanks for the report to Spinner.com.

The only Liam Gallagher written Oasis songs I feel are better than the Beady Eye tracks are "Boy With the Blues" and "I'm Outta Time", which in themselves were written with Gem Archer (secondary songwriter of Beady Eye). The Oasis split was good for both parties. Hopefully Noels record will be better than the songs he's written since 2000.
    Heavily disagree, Dig Out Your Soul was a brilliant album, and I've disliked everything since Morning glory except the odd track Noels sung or played acoustic. The 3 Beady Eye tracks available the only one i thinks alright is Four Letter Word. Bring The Light is terrible, and The Roller is crap as well. I think its about time Liam stopped trying to slag every one off to gain his own fame. He was in NME before christmas just slating everyone, even Tame Impala who i think at the moment are one of the best sounding bands around.

    Noel might be an ass as well, but he wrote most of Oasis' songs. So who exactly does Liam think he's convincing? It's amusing that even after Dave Mustaine is getting along with Metallica, the Gallagher brothers are still as petty as ever.

    everytime is see a post by liam its "f-ck this, f-ck that", and may i qoute forgetting sarah marshall with the line "bullsh-t bullsh-t bullsh-t." He uses his swearing to cover up the fact that he aint got sh-t on his bro. Oh wait, i cussed lol.

    I find this hilarious since liam owes his entire career to Noel. How can you be made a a guy who wrote all of your songs for taking unused songs that he wrote? Especially since Beady Eye's first song sux so bad, sounds like Liam is a little jealous and knows that Noel's album will be better than his.

Liam should just shut the hell up na, not really, at least not to me. i have to say, that i dont like either of them. at least hetfield and mustaine have written good music, which, in my really humble opinion, none of the gallagers have. they're just so full of themselves, that even the media finds it funny to put articles (like this one) up. To have a personal opinion about a band is one thing, but to completely disregard their work is uncalled for. Noel has written some great stuff. I'm sure even a metal head, such as yourself, can see that.
    so you're basically saying, it's okay to have an opinion, but having an opinion is uncalled for? if you can't take the fact that not everyone feels the same way as you, kindly gtfo. oh and "metalheads", you do realize that stereotyping anything makes you look like a complete *****. noel is a very talented songwriter, it's a shame that his brother is such a doucher.

    Hey that's cool lets just ignore the fact that 90% of the oasis discography is ripped straight from a beatles songbook

    never gave Oasis a chance besides "wonderwall" and i like that song, but its hard to be motivated to look further into a band when all they do is bitch... Liam specifically.... i care very little about Oasis, and every time there is an article GC it's about Liam bitching about one thing or another
    Hungry_Hameds
    Beady Eye are shit, officially, which I kind of expected as its just oasis without the creative input. So logically the 'stolen' songs are gonna sound better from Noel, the brother whose next move people care about (unless you hate them both, which is hard to argue with...)

    hahaha i laughed so hard at this. I love old Oasis. Everything up to standing on the shoulder of giants

    Can it Gallagher it's old and no one really cares. There good but these guys think they are the stones.

    And the songs Liam is talking about Noel swiping were left off Dig Out Your Soul because Liam left the sessions in LA early to return to England to buy a house. Noel wrote them so its not like he's swiping them, the last Oasis album was excellent until track 7 because the first half of it was loaded with songs Noel wrote and the second half with Liam/Gem/Andy's songs which were poor

    You have obviously never listened to Oasis ir the Beatles. Every band sounds like another band and the Oasis/Beatles comparison came about as Oasis cited them as a big influence and lazy hacks just kept on about it. How many bands are now criticised for sounding too much like Oasis?

    so sad to see 2 family members making their bullshit public...go have a beer together and get the **** over it

    Liam is definitely a good singer but Noel is and always was the main songwriter for both lyrics and music. I feel that he has a right to do so. Someone mentioned it's just like the Metallica and Megadeth thing but it's the opposite in fact: Dave Mustaine wrote the songs and Metallica swiped them, while Noel wrote the songs and Noel swiped them. He swiped from himself so it's cool in my book.

    if noel didnt want to put his songs to the album thats his right... and I think liam should be thankful because some songs that he wrote including Andy and Gem's materials have a space on their last record

    I accuse Liam Gallagher of making what would have been a good band unlistenable.

    Let me get this straight. He swiped songs he wrote from a band neither of them are in anymore? Liam Gallagher really needs to see a psychologist, just to find out if there is actually anything up there, apart from repeated use of the word "Sun-she-iii-eeennne"

    As much as Liam is bitching, his attitude makes up for who he is. He was the greatest frontman of the 90s. Live forever.

    Looks like this time the pile of shit broke previous records)))) Oh Liam... all 14 years old girls have grown up, you're the only one who won't grow up.

    Noel probably wrote every song on the album anyway, so it's unfair to accuse him of stealing when they're his own songs. Well, I'm hoping for a good album from Noel. I've not exactly been blown away by much of his recent stuff, but he's written some of my favourite songs of all time in the past.

    I won't state the obvious that Noel wrote the majority of their songs, since everyone else has already. Wait... I kind of just did... Well, apart from that, I can guarantee that this has nothing to do with artistic integrity. It's Liam's realization that he f*cked up by losing his main song writer. Instead of wanting to man up, he's going to accuse him of stealing their songs in hopes that he can gain access to these songs via rights. This is nothing more than a greedy, badly thought out plan to try and get songs. Crap. Stating the obvious again. Looks like it's all you can do with childish fighting.

    Same. I'm sick of hearing him bitch about everything. I personally think Noel was always the better singer so Liam's presence was always pretty much irrelevant anyway and earned he even fortune off it.

    Actually it's worse, Mustaine and Hetfield at least had the respect for each other as artists to not complain about each other using songs they'd written together, James Hetfield is credited on Killing is my Business And Business is Good for Mechanix, and Dave Mustaine is credided on Seek and Destroy for The Four Horsemen and a couple of others. Here Liam's bitching about songs that I doubt he had any hand in writing, considering he's written one or two songs per album since Standing on the Shoulders of Giants, and Noel is well aware that he doesn't need to steal anything that Liam wrote.

    Musician uses songs he wrote shocker! God, Liam is a tiresome cretin at times.

    He's not swiping songs he wrote...Liam Gallagher needs to get over himself (fat chance). His schtick was being able to sing sorta like Lennon on "Rain" and "Tomorrow Never Knows", but he can't even do that very well anymore. His own songs are VERY rudimentary...Of course Noel's own style has consisted of meshing Lennonesque chords, Kinks-esque melodies T-rex/Bowie rhythms and Pistols-ish distortion into something barely resembling an original style. whatever the case,yeah, everyone's sick of their comically inflated senses of worth/ability and constant bickering.

    This pretty much. End of discussion.
