Noel Gallagher mocked brother Liam’s group as “Stratford’s finest tribute band.”
Noel hit out at Beady Eye following their rendition of Wonderwall at the Olympics Closing Ceremony, last Sunday.
Playing Dingwalls in London in aid of the Warchild charity last night, the writer of the famous tune stuck the boot in.
“I know this is gonna be difficult for you, but if you can’t sing along to this next song, it’s because it sounds different when I sing it ... I’d like to dedicate this to Stratford’s finest Oasis tribute band,” sad Noel.
Sticking to the Olympics - which closed on Sunday (13.08.12) at the new Olympic stadium in Stratford - the 45-year-old rocker dedicated ‘Supersonic’ to double Team GB gold medallist Mo Farrah.
Before playing the song, he told fans: “I’m gonna dedicate this song to the great Mo Farrah.”
Noel’s set was littered with Oasis tracks and tunes from his debut solo album, ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’, including ‘If I Had A Gun...’ and ‘(AKA) What A Life!’
He also chose to delve into the rarest of Oasis tracks and played ‘Angel Child’ - the B-side to 1997 UK number one ‘D’ya Know What I Mean?’ - for the first time ever live and ‘D’ya Wanna Be A Spaceman?’, the B-side to debut Oasis single ‘Supersonic’, released in 1994.
