In a recent interview with BBC Radio 4, Oasis’ Noel Gallagher released his very passionate thoughts on the emerging “middle class” music scene in the UK. Gallagher told BBC the main reason for starting Oasis was to give the working class a musical voice, an effort that has since been ruined since their rule in the mid 90s.

The main targets? English indie-pop band, Bastille. Gallagher didn’t hold back when he said, “I’d have eaten Bastille alive in an afternoon in the ‘90s, one interview, destroyed, gone, never to be heard of again. Easy, had ‘em for breakfast.”
