Former Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher recently talked about his collaboration with The Lemonheads frontman Evan Dando that never saw the light of the day but it resulted in a feud between the two via NME.
The former Oasis songwriter and High Flying Birds bandleader worked on a song with Dando around three decades ago. However, the two reached a deadlock over the track, leading to the song remaining unreleased and a feud bubbling.
Now, in a new interview, Gallagher has reflected on the incident and explained what happened to make the relationship between himself and Dando so “awkward”.
According to Gallagher, the song was called ‘Purple Parallelogram’ and was written with The Lemonheads singer during the peak of Oasis’ fame in the ’90s. Speaking on Matt Morgan’s Patreon podcast, he also said that the conflict emerged when Dando recorded the two messing about on their guitars and declared he was going to release it as a new song.
“We were in this festival circuit in 1994 and on every festival that year was Oasis and The Lemonheads,” the singer, songwriter and guitarist began. “Them, us, The Disposable Heroes Of Hiphoprisy and House Of Pain.”
“Evan always had a tape recorder and he was always like, ‘Hey, man, let’s record a song’,” Gallagher added. “Then he went and did it and recorded it and was like, ‘I’m going to put it out.’
“And it was a bit [like], ‘Hang on a minute – you can’t do that’… “I heard it and I didn’t like it and it was like, ‘No’. It was a bit awkward.”
