Listen: Noel Gallagher ‘The Amity Affliction Sound Like A Dead Turd’

Written by John Ritchie on January 23, 2012

Triple J have uploaded the audio from the Noel Gallagher interview at Big Day Out yesterday, in which he describes Aussie band The Amity Affliction as sounding ‘like a dead turd’. The comment has caused an uproar with The Amity Affliction’s fans however the band members have taken it pretty lightly, posting on their Facebook page:

Noel Gallagher hates our band. Mum, we made it!!!

Gallagher asked the triple j presenter “Whats this?”, to which the presenter replied “The Amity Affliction: a little bit of melody, little bit of screaming and some triggered kick drums”.

“Sounds like a dead turd”, Gallagher replied.
