Bloc Party's Okereke: 'Oasis Are Over-rated'
BLOC PARTY frontman KELE OKEREKE has branded rockers OASIS as "over-rated" and claims the band have "made stupidity hip".
The SO HERE WE ARE star has hit back at the Manchester group after NOEL GALLAGHER made disparaging comments about Bloc Party earlier this year (07), comparing the band to geeky contestants on UK TV quiz show, UNIVERSITY CHALLENGE.
He says, "I think Oasis are the most over-rated and pernicious and of all time. They had a totally negative and dangerous impact upon the state of British music.
"They have made stupidity hip. They claim to be inspired by the BEATLES but, and this saddens me, they have failed to grasp that the Beatles were about constant change and evolution."
