Many people have been calling for Noel and Liam Gallagher to put their sibling rivalry aside and reunite Oasis, but perhaps Matty Healy will be the one to finally convince them.
During an interview with Canada’s CBC Radio, The 1975 frontman makes a strongly worded, occasionally profane case for the “Wonderwall” outfit to get back together.
“What are Oasis doing?” Healy asks. “Can you imagine being in, potentially, right now, still, the coolest band in the world and not doing it, ’cause you’re in a [feud] with your brother?”
Healy further admonishes the Gallagher brothers for “acting like they’re in their 20s” and for living in luxurious areas while “crying over an argument with their brother” when they’re supposed to be “men of the people.”
“Grow up,” Healy says. “Headline Glastonbury.”
Healy then takes a shot at Noel and Liam’s solo projects, proclaiming, “There is not one person going to a High Flying Birds gig or a Liam Gallagher gig that would not rather be at an Oasis gig.”
“Do me a favor: get back together, stop messing around,” Healy concludes. “That’s my public service announcement for today.”
We’ll see if Healy’s fervent argument sways Noel or Liam, who’ve remained estranged since Oasis’ breakup in 2009. Or maybe Liam will just go back to calling Noel a “potato.”
