Noel Gallagher doesn't appear to share his estranged brother Liam's dislike for folk group Mumford & Sons - he wishes he had written one of their songs.
Just days after former Oasis frontman Liam criticised the band for not looking "dangerous", referring to them as "f**king Amish people", his sibling has confessed he's a fan.
In a new Rolling Stone magazine interview, Noel reveals he's a big admirer of their song The Cave and says, "I don't mind them. A lot of people hate them in England. I think it's the waistcoat and facial hair... I think that guy (Marcus Mumford)'s got a good voice... I wish had written that song (The Cave). That's the biggest compliment I can pay whoever wrote that."
But Gallagher, who has just launched himself as a solo performer following the break-up of Oasis, still has reservations about another British band - Radiohead.
He adds, "They've been making the same record since (album) Kid A. But this needs to be said. I don't own any of their records, but every time I've seen them live, they've f**king blown me away. It was like, 'Wow, f**king listen to that! How do you f**king make that s**t come out of those speakers?'
"But have I ever had a moment where I sat down and thought, 'Do you know what this calls for? This calls for (Radiohead song) Paranoid Android! Get it on!'? No. I've never had that moment."
