DMA'S are currently supporting Liam Gallagher on part of his current solo UK tour dates, and will join the Shockwave singer at his homecoming gig in Manchester this week.

Speaking to Radio X about the first time they met the former Oasis frontman, guitarist Johnny Took said: "Ah it was awesome. Especially because you could meet someone you look up to like that and there's a good chance they could be a tosspot, but he was cool as.

"And you know he just loves music. And we went to the pub with his son Gene. We watched the Manchester Derby and we talked about music. It was just a great experience, you know."
