Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has described current indie music as a “fucking disease”.

The singer singled out Bloc Party in his attack, which came in the new edition of Esquire magazine.

"I really despise this new fucking disease of indie fucking shit, fucking student music, the likes of Bloc Party and all that fucking nonsense,” he said.

“They don't keep me awake at night, but it's just shite, and they can fucking have it mate."

Gallagher, who recently launched the fashion label Pretty Green, also criticised current indie band's dress sense.

"The thing is, man, you can make your clothes look like they've been worn in and look as if they've had a bit of character, but underneath you've got to have a fucking wash, he said.

“Those fuckers wear the clothes all the fucking time and they don't wash, so it's like, 'Where's the fucking bench?'”

The singer added that the best band's were able to combine good music with good looks.

Gallagher is currently working on his debut album with his as-yet-unnamed new band, which is expected this summer.
