Liam Not A Fan Of New Album

Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has given a new interview in which he dismisses the new Kings Of Leon album saying that "it seems to me they've gone for the bucks, man".

Oasis are currently touring the UK and are promoting superb new album 'Dig Out Your Soul'. An extensive interview with the entire band features in the new issue of Clash Magazine, in which they discuss life in the studio and the modern music industry.

Liam Gallagher spoke to American magazine Rolling Stone recently and was in no mood to mince his words on modern bands. While praising Kasabain - "they've got the look, the tunes, they say just the right amount of stuff" - he was also dismissive of the new album by Kings Of Leon.

A transatlantic success, 'Only By The Night' has been hailed by critics as one of the best albums of the decade so far. Liam Gallagher, however, disagrees saying "I like the Kings of Leon, but I don't know about this fucking new record. I like the old stuff, but I like his voice, you can always tell his voice when it comes on. But it seems to me they've gone for the bucks, man."

"When they first come out I was going, "Who the fuck is this?" They were cool and now they've all got their sleeves cut off. And I'm not dissing them because I fucking really like them, but it's like they've got this U2 sound and you can do better than that."

Liam Gallagher also found time to lambast the fashions of the current indie scene saying "all the people that are in bands are wearing the same fucking clothes — wearing skinny jeans, wearing these pointy fucking shoes, a little tie, a little waistcoat, a little tight T-shirt and it's like, "Fucking A, do you all live in the same fucking house? Do you all shop at the same fucking shop?" Everyone in bands, they're all wearing the same fucking clothes, they all must shop at the same fucking shop. It's like, "Fuck that."

Oasis' new album 'Dig Out Your Soul' is available now.
