In case you missed it, we recently spoke with Noel Gallagher, during which he addressed comments from the 1975’s Matty Healy regarding Oasis’ unwillingness to reunite.

“Oh, that fucking slack-jawed fuckwit. What did he say?” Gallagher asked. When presented with the comments, he replied, “He would never be able to imagine it (Oasis reuniting). He needs to go over how shit his band is and split up.”

A representative for Healy declined comment from SPIN at the time, but now the artist has finally responded. Playing a few songs on his own before the 1975’s set in Dublin (opener Caroline Polachek sadly lost her voice and couldn’t perform), Healy began by praising Gallagher.

“Noel Gallagher called me a ‘slack-jawed fuckwit,'” Healy told the crowd. “I love Noel Gallagher. We asked Liam to open up and he said he would have done it but he was busy. But I love Noel Gallagher, give it up for Noel Gallagher. He’s just getting on. The difference between me and Noel is that I do a series of interviews to promote an album, whereas he does an album to promote a series of interviews (Laughs). But we love you Noel, get Oasis back together!”

So, there you have it. Your move, Noel!
