Simply Red's Mick Hucknall Slams 'Cliched' Oasis
November 21, 2008
Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall has slammed Oasis, suggesting that the band are an embarrassment to their hometown of Manchester.
In an interview with Q magazine, Hucknall, a fellow Mancunian, referred specifically to Liam Gallagher's trademark walk and persona.
“I love that Harry Engfield sketch when Kathy Burke comes back from a weekend in Manchester walking with a Liam gait and goes, ‘Fuckin’ sound. Bangin’,” he said.
“They’ve made a clichй out of presenting Northerners, especially Mancunians, like that.”
Hucknall is currently promoting Simply Red's new greatest hits album, which marks their 25 years together.
