Liam Gallagher Changes Hotel To Avoid Brother Noel

Liam Gallagher moved hotels this week to avoid his brother and former Oasis bandmate Noel, according to reports.

According to the Daily Star, Liam had been scheduled to stay at the Hope Street Hotel when current band Beady Eye played the O2 Liverpool Academy. However, the singer discovered that Noel was also booked into the luxury accommodation, as he travelled to watch Manchester City play Liverpool.

A source said: “Liam wasn’t having any of it, he refused to check in and demanded to be moved to another hotel.”

The feuding brothers are not thought to have spoken since an argument in August 2009 led to the demise of the iconic Britpop band, when guitarist Noel announced his departure.

Since then, Liam has established Beady Eye and they are currently on their first full UK tour.

Listen: Radiohead Single Leaks

New tracks from Radiohead have emerged online ahead of Record Store Day.

Set to be released tomorrow (April 16th) the new 12 inch from Radiohead is highly unusual. The vinyl release is being kept to a strictly limited edition.

The first physical pressing of two new tracks, 'Supercollider' and 'The Butcher' have been kept under wraps. Referring to the new 12 inch, the drummer claimed that the material is offcuts from recent sessions. "The Butcher is from the King Of Limbs sessions," he revealed.  "Supercollider was recorded during that period and finished off after the album came out."

The tracks were not jettisoned from the album because of quality, but more due to neither fitting into the LP's overarching structure. As a result, the quality of the new release is high. Leaking online, fans have been able to hear exactly what they will be queuing for tomorrow...

Meanwhile 'The Butcher' is a far more focussed track - beat heavy, but not at the expense of songwriting.

As part of the Record Store Day celebrations, Ed O'Brien praised the role of independent record shops. "Record stores are some of the most important places for people coming together [and] choosing music that they love," O'Brien said, "so anything we could to help out in these very hard times, we wanted to do."

Listen to both below...
