Former Oasis guitarist and songwriter Noel Gallagher returned to the music world Wednesday with the announcement he had written two solo albums, the first of which will be released in October. Two years after feuding with his brother Liam, who was Oasis frontman, led to the band splitting up, he announced an eponymous album by his band "Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds" would be released on October 17.

Noel and Liam Gallagher are always up to some brotherly hijinks or another, but this just might set a new bar for the wildest stunt from the duo. According to a new back page feature in the Sunday Sport newspaper (as pointed out by Consequence of Sound), the Gallagher brothers were known to break into various homes in their native Manchester during their early years with Oasis, with famous victims like British TV host Richard Madely attesting to their burglary throughout the late ’80s and early 1990s. As Consequence of Sound also points out, a recent episode of Good Morning Britain recently revealed that the Gallaghers have even admitted their guilt to the actor.

After hearing about Madely’s experience in 1989, a former neighbor named Gladys Tomlinson claims to be another victim of the Gallaghers’ mischief. In a new Sunday Sport feature, the Manchester resident says that one day in 1989, she came home to find her “knick-knacks and videos” stolen, with the burglars allegedly leaving a shit in her bathtub. “They was beyond the pale,” she told the paper. “Pound to a penny that was one of them that shat in the old bath.”

Now on Instagram, Noel has somewhat owned up to the crime, offering an apology to Tomlinson regarding the incident. “It’s a fair cop guv’,” he captioned. “We thought it was Richard Madely’s gaff. Soz Gladys. No offence.” While it’s a little hard to decipher through the dialect, Noel seems willing to take at least partial blame for the incident. See his Instagram apology for yourself below.
