Oasis: Liam defends Be Here Now and blames Noel for people hating it
Oasis’ Be Here Now LP shifted so many copies it was the fastest selling in UK history, but many years later it doesn’t have a great reputation. In fact it’s often considered bloated and shitty (and as someone who saw the Be Here Now tour, I’m not arguing that fact.) Liam Gallagher however is using this to take a pop at… well his brother of course.
“I’m not bringing people up, but there are a lot of sheep out there, aren’t there?” he told Vulture. “And if the main guy [Noel] says, “Oh, it’s fucking this and that,” a lot of people not using their own minds say, “Yeah, I agree.” If Noel had said it’s the best thing ever, I’m sure it’d have gotten a different fucking reception. The reason why he didn’t like it is because it reminds him of a not-so-good time with his ex-wife. That’s fine. That’s his prerogative.”
“But me, I had a good time making that album. I think there are some great songs on it. I think I sung really well, and it was a good time to be alive. Some of the songs went on a bit long, and they were a bit overproduced, but that’s what happens, mate, if you think you’re a producer. At that time, our kid was always messing with the tracks. It’s like, write the songs, play the guitar, and shut the fuck up... I like that album, because that’s what I did — I sang the songs, I had a good time, and went to the pub.”
And that really seems to be the extent of Liam’s ambition.
