Idlewild guitarist Allen Stewart took a shot at Oasis in an interview with Chart magazine. “I think a lot of bands don’t pay attention to their lyrics,” says Stewart. “I know for myself, I tend to listen to both the music and lyrics of a song when I’m listening to different music. Some bands are just lazy with lyrics and take a too simplistic approach. We were just talking about Oasis the other day and how terrible their lyrics are. It’s like they’re just putting in words for the sake of putting them in. It’s really more bemusing than anything. You think of what it is, then, that people look for in music, and why they get into music.” Chartattack.com has since removed the article.
