Liam Gallagher claims his new band will be "more musical" than Oasis.
The outspoken singer - whose older brother Noel quit Oasis last August after tensions and feuding between the pair became intolerable - believes the group he has formed without his sibling will be more successful because they will concentrate on the songs and nothing else.
He said: "We are going to be more musical than Oasis. It's not going to be so f***ing full-on, heavy chords, you know? More sophisticated. Not up its own a**e. but more musical."
Liam, 37, is currently working on new material with his ex-Oasis bandmates Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock, while 42-year-old Noel - who wrote the majority of Oasis' biggest hits, including 'Wonderwall' and 'Some Might Say' - is preparing to launch a solo career.
Liam has made no secret of his dislike of Noel and recently described him as the most "overrated" man of all time.
Discussing who he thought was the most overrated man in history, Liam told Esquire magazine: "Has to be Noel Gallagher."
