Bloc Party's Kele Okereke Calls Noel and Liam Gallagher 'Inbred Twins'

August 31, 2009
Bloc Party's Kele Okereke Calls Noel and Liam Gallagher 'Inbred Twins'Bloc Party singer Kele Okereke called Noel and Liam Gallagher “inbred twins” after announcing live on stage at Rock en Seine that Oasis had pulled out on August 28.

Okereke and co. were promoted to the headline act at the French Festival after Oasis pulled out.

The Gallagher brothers had a huge rift, of course, which resulted in Noel sensationally quitting Oasis for good. It's alleged that Liam smashed Noel's guitar in the Parisian fracas.

On stage, Kele Okereke seemed highly amused at the news and told the crowd sarcastically: “So I'd like to take this moment to say 'ah that's a shame isn't it guys?' So I guess by default we are headlining.

“I'd like to to dedicate this next song (Mercury) to those who wanted to see, ah, those inbred twins (Noel and Liam).”

In 2007, Okereke called Oasis “the most overrated band of all time” and “luddites”.

He ranted to Uncut magazine: "They have had a totally negative and dangerous impact upon the state of British music... They claim to be inspired by The Beatles but - and this saddens me - they have failed to grasp that The Beatles were about constant change and evolution. Oasis are repetetive Luddites."
