Gallagher has been speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live’s Men’s Hour as the programme prepares to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Smiths’ debut single ‘Hand In Glove‘ on May 5th at 9pm.
“It was quite fascinating to think that The Jam split in ‘83 and that’s when The Smiths first appeared,” Noel says. “And then as soon as The Smiths disappeared The Stone Roses appeared, and then as soon as The Stone Roses disappeared Oasis appeared. And it’s almost as though someone’s moving the chess pieces around. Someone’s going ‘well you had your go…’ – we’re all part of the same song I reckon.”
The full programme will be aired on the BBC station on May 5th. “I don’t know you’d have to ask him,” Gallagher continues when asked if he thinks his brother Liam would consider The Smiths to be ‘effeminate’. “He probably doesn’t know what effeminate means. So you’d have to ask him. I can’t speak for him anymore. Thank God.”
