The Amity Affliction Respond To Noel Gallagher’s ‘Dead Turd’ Comment

Written by John Ritchie on January 23, 2012

Last night, live from the Big Day Out on triple j radio station, Noel Gallagher described The Amity Affliction’s music as sounding “like a dead turd”. Now The Amity Affliction have responded with a post on their Facebook page:

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

Gallagher had entered the triple j tent backstage to conduct an interview while one of The Amity Affliction’s songs were playing on the station. 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.

Update: Listen To The Interview

An audio version of the interview will be posted on triple j shortly.

Apparently Amity fans haven’t been taking it too well:

Jamie Wiley wrote:

He is just a has been washed up “rockstar” who faded away and only made a statement like this because he wants his name in the news and everyone is like, “Oh yeah that guy who wrote Wonderwall.

Liam Hudson posed the question,

What the f**k does he know? He is in a terrible band. “If I had a gun, I’d shoot a hole into the sun”. Sweet lyrics,d**khead

Both The Amity Affliction and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will head to Sydney for the Big Day Out festival on Thursday.
