Kaiser Chiefs frontman Richard Wilson is flattered Liam Gallagher branded the band "a bad Blur" last month (APR05) - because he's a huge Oasis fan.

The OH MY GOD rockers have refused to enter a war of words with Gallagher, because they are honoured the WONDERWALL singer thought them worthy of insulting.

Wilson admits, "I was chuffed to bits. To even occupy space in Liam's mind so he'd open his mouth about us is a compliment.

"He had a go for me wearing make-up, but the only reason I ever wore make-up was to look like him.

"It's hard to get that dark, swarthy look in your eyes when you're a ginger."
