An Evening In Conversation with Noel Gallagher

Noel Gallagher has spoken out about his techniques for getting rid of Liam whilst he was practising.

Speaking at Radio X's An Evening In Conversation With Noel Gallagher last week, Noel said he used to give Liam £5 to go away.

Chatting about forming the band to Radio X's John Kennedy, Noel said: "We used to share a room, he used to sit and watch me play acoustic guitar. Not once did he join in."

"The was no inkling, not even a twinkling in the eye or a clearing of the throat. To get rid of him I'd have to lend him a fiver. I'd sit there playing the guitar, i'd say 'Have you go nothing better to do?' He'd say 'Lend us a fiver and I'll go out.' It carried on like that for the next twenty years!"

Noel Gallagher's new album, Chasing Yesterday, comes out early next year.
