Most critics had Arcade Fire's comeback record Reflektor in their Top 10 list, but the group's reputation suffered a little when they issued fans with a dress code for their upcoming shows before back tracking.

"I haven't heard it," Gallagher said of the album, "Anybody that comes back with a double album, to me, needs to pry themselves out of their own asshole. This is not the Seventies, okay? Go and ask Billy Corgan about a double album. Who has the f*cking time, in 2013, to sit through 45 minutes of a single album? How arrogant are these people to think that you've got an hour and a half to listen to a f*cking record?"

When gently nudged by the interviewer to discuss the whole dress code thing, Noel said, "Well, what's the point of that? Do you know what the point of that is? That is to take away from the sh*t disco that's coming out of the speakers. Because everybody's dressed as one of the Three Musketeers on acid. "What was the gig like?" "I don't know, everyone was dressed as a teddy bear in the Seventies." "Yeah, but what was the gig like?" "Ah, f*ck knows, man, I have no idea. I was dressed as a flying saucer." "Yeah, but what was the gig like?" "F*ck knows. I don't know."

Elsewhere in the interview, Gallagher confirmed he wouldn't be releasing a new album in 2014 because he hadn't even started recording it yet. "I hope to do some recording in New York, because I've never done it before, and maybe on the off chance I might bump into David Bowie somewhere on the street, and get him to come down to the studio, dressed as an elf, and do a little mime while I'm putting an acoustic guitar track," he said.
