Liam Gallagher waxes lyrical about Daft Punk in blizzard of F words

Good ole Liam Gallagher eh? As the bright and shiny marketing phenomenon that is Daft Punk top the charts and send the musical blogosphere scurrying for their thesaurus, the Oasis frontman has waded into the debate.

Using his familiar brand of subtlety, tact, diplomacy and cheery charm, Liam began reflecting on the sensation that is the ‘Get Lucky’ hit single when he was invited onto a live streaming session with Sony’s MU. Despite the single having racked up 600,000 sales in an age where track sales often never make it to 6 figures, Liam felt that it wasn’t perhaps quite as uniquely special as some might suggest.

“I’d write that in a f***ing hour," he cooed softly. "I don’t know what the fuss is about, you know what I mean? It’s like f**k off, give me a f**king break.”

Warming to his theme, he began to consider the philosophical ramifications of the French duo’s stage garb that makes them look not unlike the Stig from Top Gear.

“I am not going to have people wear disguises. Take your f***ing helmet off. Let’s see what you look like sans helmet, whatever you’re called.”

‘Sans helmet’ Brilliant - absolutely brilliant.

Thomas Bangalter from Daft Punk then went on Radio 1 to open his heart and soul about his helmet fetish.

“We don’t talk about our private lives because they’re private, plus the public image is more fun and entertaining anyway. Usually the 24-hour high-maintenance celebrity lifestyle can disconnect people from reality.

“And after a band has been making records for 20 years, they’re not doing the most interesting shit because they fall into this bourgeois, successful, settled existence.”

Hmmm – that last line - couldn’t possibly be taking a pop at a certain Mancunian outfit could he?? Either way – their helmets were responsible for the utter pointlessness of Deadmau5. That is surely enough to convict them in any right thinking person’s book.
