Liam Gallagher And Mark Lanegan Are Fighting On Twitter

Liam Gallagher And Mark Lanegan

Mark Lanegan

 

In his memoir, ‘Sing Backwards and Weep: A Memoir,’ Mark Lanegan doesn’t mince his words when remembering the tour his band Screaming Trees did with Oasis in 1996. He remembers looking forward to touring, while the experience became ‘fraught with tension, mainly between myself and Oasis’s ignorant, loudmouthed, and obnoxious lead singer, Liam Gallagher.’

Ah, the Gallagher brothers, and their obnoxious but hilarious reputation! Lanegan is actually only mad at one of the brothers, as he didn’t really appreciate the new moniker Liam found for his band, ‘Howling Branches,’ and it was the beginning of a not-so-relaxed tour. Lanegan mentions Liam disrupting the show, standing at the edge of the stage, and after a lot of ‘Fuck you’ and ‘C’mon, motherfucker,’ Gallagher received a Fender in the face by a very irritated bassist Van Conner.

‘It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving guy. This dickhole had stood right next to our stage, trying to maddog me the entire time we played our stupid fucking set, just begging for a beatdown,’ writes Lanegan, who is visibly eager to tear apart the reputation of Gallagher without sparing any of his flaws.

‘This clown had accidentally stumbled into the high life, courtesy of his talented older brother, Noel Gallagher, writes Lanegan. ‘Noel was the one-man hit factory and true genius behind Oasis, writing all of their great, classic tunes. He had been friendly and respectful, treating both our band and crew with common courtesy. The limelight of popularity Liam basked in had evidently uncaged a monster, one without teeth or claws, but a small, irritating monster nonetheless. Success looked to have unleashed his inherent narcissism, his look-at-me-ism, his transparent deep-rooted insecurity. But what the fuck did I know? He had probably been a lowlife cocksucker his entire life. Maybe he’d been a bedwetter, shit his pants at school, or been cut from football squad as a youngster and never gotten over it. I couldn’t believe someone hadn’t beaten, knifed, or shot him to death by now, such was the reckless, witless and despotic nature of his insufferable façade. Where I was from, a person wouldn’t last a week behaving as he did. One day, they’d simply disappear, their mangled body discovered years later, haphazardly tossed into a shallow grave somewhere deep in the woods.’

And he goes on and on, writing about his fantasy to basically eviscerate the spoiled child and mocking his two giant bodyguards, ‘two giant fucks glued to his hip.’ I get that Lanegan doesn’t like the man who was probably acting like the little pest he is known for, but how many pages do we need on Liam’s ‘minuscule dick,’ and his ‘would-be playground bully’ manners? These pages are the most memorable and over the top rant I have ever read.

Liam Gallagher took on Twitter to send his answer to Lanegan, with the usual typos: ‘Mark lannegn here’s how I saw it I asked you your bands name I was fucking around and called it something else you being an upiight junkie and not having a sense of humour got your little grungy knickers in a twist another bullshitter trying to sell a book LG x

To what Lanegan answered: ‘Coke addicts are junkies too you fucking tool, the stupidest kind. Still trying to make like you’re hard. i could have then and still could put serious hurt on you. leave it alone dickhead unless youre actually ready to finally step up.’

Does this have become a drug contest or a celebrity boxing match? Lanegan is actually the one sending real threats ‘still could put serious hurt on you’, while Gallagher calls him an upright junkie… and I hate to say that I kind of agree with Gallagher on this one, ‘Howling Branches’ was funny!

This story doesn’t give me too much desire to read the book if Lanegan’s prose is mostly about spiting bitter venom at the rest of the music scene, I heard that Liam Gallagher is not the only one to receive the bad treatment, even though the book is essentially brutal in the most self-deprecating and self-destructive way.

But to finish on this, I would not trust Lanegan’s memory too much on what happened in 1996… he recently changed his mind regarding whether Kurt Cobain called him shortly before he died. If he said in a 1994 interview that he hadn’t heard from Cobain that day, he is now claiming the Nirvana frontman called him, but he didn’t pick up the phone. If guilt is obviously a factor in the story, I don’t like when people change their story, it makes them very unreliable.

Liam Gallagher is right in a way, a good fight is always a good seller, and Lanegan will have his own descent to hell alone.
