Gallagher: 'Mumford & Sons must shop at Oxfam'

Liam Gallagher has blasted Mumford & Sons for having no style.

The outspoken Beady Eye frontman hit out at the folk rockers for appearing unkempt and slammed their use of "too many acoustic guitars".

He said: "Everyone looks like they've got f***ing nits and eat lentil soup with their sleeves rolled up.

"They all look like they live on the heath. Maybe that's where they record.

"Everyone's f***ing Don McLean -- far too many acoustic guitars, no style. They look like they shop at Oxfam.

"I wouldn't put any posters up of any band if I was a 16-year-old lad. There's none of that sitting down on f***ing stools for me, sweetheart."

The 'Roller' hitmaker also admitted he is a fan of boy band One Direction, even though he thinks they are clueless and a meeting at the London Olympics Closing Ceremony, where they both performed, didn't go well.

He told Q Magazine: "I like them. Fair play to them. Why not, man? They haven't got a f***ing clue either.

"I met them at the Olympics and their heads were up their ar*es, but they're harmless."
