Liam Gallagher has slammed folk rockers Mumford and Sons for looking like "they've got f***ing nits and eat lentil soup with their sleeves rolled up"
Liam Gallagher has blasted Mumford & Sons for having no style.
The outspoken Beady Eye frontman hit out at the folk rockers for appearing unkempt and slammed their use of "too many acoustic guitars".
He said: "Everyone looks like they've got f***ing nits and eat lentil soup with their sleeves rolled up.
"They all look like they live on the heath. Maybe that's where they record.
"Everyone's f***ing Don McLean -- far too many acoustic guitars, no style. They look like they shop at Oxfam.
"I wouldn't put any posters up of any band if I was a 16-year-old lad. There's none of that sitting down on f***ing stools for me, sweetheart."
The 'Roller' hitmaker also admitted he is a fan of boy band One Direction, even though he thinks they are clueless and a meeting at the London Olympics Closing Ceremony, where they both performed, didn't go well.
He told Q Magazine: "I like them. Fair play to them. Why not, man? They haven't got a f***ing clue either.
"I met them at the Olympics and their heads were up their ar*es, but they're harmless."
