Liam Gallagher slams Daft Punk: 'I could have written Get Lucky in an hour'
Daft Punk may have sold over 600,000 copies of their number one single “Get Lucky” but Liam Gallagher is not taken by the song, claiming he could have written the song “in an hour”.
But Liam Gallagher, being Liam Gallagher, made his point with a familiar flourish.
“I’d write that in a f***ing hour," were his exact words. "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.”
The Oasis frontman offered his critique during an interview with Sony’s MU streaming service. And he wasn't content to leave his thoughts on Daft Punk to their latest single, either.
He also criticised the French duo’s decision to hide their identity by wearing helmets. “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.”
But Gallagher might be looking back in anger at the end of the summer, as Daft Punk have announced they are already working on a remix of “Get Lucky”, to be released by the end of June.
Thomas Bangalter from the group told Radio 1: “We’re working on some mixes ourselves. So, yes, there will probably be Daft Punk mixes of Daft Punk. Usually, we never mix ourseleves, that’s something we feel we’re interested in doing this time.”
Defending his decision to perform unidentified in a helmet, Bangalter said: “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.”
