Liam and Richard D. James speak up about Radiohead

by Jonathan on October 11, 2001

In a recent interview with the NME, Liam Gallagher of Oasis spoke about the band’s upcoming album:

“It’s punk rock. And moody. And well done, proper – none of that weird fooking Radiohead bollocks, none of that indie fooking rubbish. It’s the Pistols and the Beatles, man – it’s us.”

In a seperate interview with www.groove.de, Richard D. James (aka Aphex Twin) brought up Radiohead:

(Translated from German)
Your music was very influential. One of the more outstanding artists, who said they were influenced by your music, is Radiohead. Did you listen to one of their latest Albums ?Kid A? or ?Amnesiac??
I don?t like them. I heard about five or six songs and considered them really crappy!
Crappy?
Yeah! Predictable and crappy! I mean, I?m simply comparing them to my favourite music, and in comparison to that it?s horrible! Compared with all that shitty boring R&B-stuff it?s probably ok. Compared to these teenage punk bands ? or whatever you?re supposed to call them – , which consider themselves being really anarchistic and stuff, they?re probably great! If one is suspended solely to things like that and then comes Radiohead?you probably think they?re geniuses!
{thanks to Zach & Kid.A}
