LIAM Gallagher has said Oasis fans need to “grow up” and stop taking sides between his band Beady Eye and his brother Noel’s group High Flying Birds.
Oasis split in 2009 following a row between the two feuding brothers, with both later launching their own music projects.
But he said fans should simply base their view on the strength of the music.
Liam - who formed Beady Eye with former Oasis stars Andy Bell and Gem Archer - said of the fans: “I read stuff. It’s divided, innit? And it’s like, ‘he’s a dick’ and ‘he’s not a dick’. Everyone should just wind their necks in.
“I’m not saying you’ve got to go and buy our record, you only buy it if you like it. But there’s a lot of hatred to certain members of bands, whether it’s me or Noel, and I just think it’s stupid.
“They don’t have to act like dicks just ‘cause me and our kid are, they should just grow up.”
Liam, 40, said Beady Eye’s newly released album BE was a departure from the music he and his colleagues had made together before.
“We didn’t go in there to make this record, we just went in there to record the songs that we’ve written and it turned out like this. It’s just good songwriting, good singing, good melodies, and that will never go away. And it shouldn’t be pinned to any region or part of the country.”
Despite the rift with Noel, Liam said he did not rule out an Oasis reunion next year to mark 20 years since their debut album Definitely Maybe was released.
He said: “I’m not against nothing, never say never, but right now this is where we’re at.”
