Ongoing History Daily: One of the greatest Gallagher dust-ups: Wibbling Rivalry.

If there was one thing we could count on with Oasis is that Noel and Liam would fight–and that it would get weird.  The greatest weird fight they ever had was on April 7 1994.  The band had just been deported from Holland for causing trouble on the ferry ride over and were scheduled to sit down with a reporter from The NME, one of the English weekly music papers. 

Within seconds, Liam and Noel started going at each other–even as the tape recorder was running.  They went at it for fourteen minutes and thirty seconds, arguing and bickering and swearing at each other.  The writer took that recording and somehow had it released as a single called “Wibbling Rivalry.”  It’s one of the weirdest singles to ever make to British music stores.
