Liam Gallagher has responded to calls from Matt Healy for Oasis to reunite.
Earlier this month, The 1975 frontman called on estranged brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher to “grow up and headline Glastonbury”, adding that he did not understand bands like Oasis who “get so serious”, over something that is “not that complicated”.
Healy made these comments when speaking to Q With Tom Power, in an interview which was aired by the Canadian Broadcasting Company.
“They’re men of the people, and they’re sat around in, like, Little Venice and Highgate, crying over an argument with their brother. Grow up! Headline Glastonbury! Have a good time! Have a laugh!”, Healy urged.
Healy concluded by saying, “Do me a favour: Get back together, stop messing around. That’s my public service announcement for today”.
“the boss of time”
Since then, former Oasis lead singer Liam Gallagher has responded to Healy’s call for the band to reunite via Twitter.
The singer was asked by a fan “Matty Healy says you’re just wasting your time and you should stop being like children… what do you think?”.
Gallagher’s issued this blunt response, “It’s our time to waste who made him the boss of time”.

Elsewhere in that interview, Matt Healy also insisted that the solo careers that Liam and Noel have had following Oasis’ split do not hold a candle to the legacy of the Manchester band.
“There’s not one kid, not one person, going to a High Flying Birds gig or a Liam Gallagher gig that would not rather be at an Oasis gig”, he said.
Healy also added that he was particularly proud of his own band’s achievements since they formed in 2003.
He stated that they have always “mediated [their] tensions by being very tactile, very open and very silly”.
