Warner Music Rep emailed me this regarding the recent headlines:
Response from Tom Clarke regarding media reports over comments concerning Oasis
The Enemy’s frontman Tom Clarke has responded to media stories suggesting that he criticised Oasis in an interview with The Sun.
Talking to The Sun’s Gordon Smart and John Gaunt about the upcoming Oasis stadium tour on which The Enemy are confirmed as support, Clarke said, “I don’t think Noel needs to do it anymore [for the money]. He is doing it for the love of it. That’s the dream. That’s when you can say you’ve made it.”
Clarke’s comment was intended to be a compliment for Oasis and Noel Gallagher’s continuing success, but has instead been misinterpreted as criticism. Emphasising his respect for Oasis as both individuals and as band, Clarke responded by commenting: “That’s complete and utter bollocks! Oasis have been and still are one of my favourite bands ever. It’s an absolute honour for them to invite us onto their tour, I can’t wait! Oasis passed it? Not a fuckin’ chance!”

What a snivelling little man. Oasis is past it, it's a fact that neither Noel or Liam will ever comes to term with. They'll be 90 (poncing about like they are 21) and still think they are relevant. The band they were is relevant, not the band they are now. However much i love Oasis it pisses me off these new bands eg Kasabian, the Enemy etc. seem to think the sun shines out of Noels backside, its bad for their music and its bad for Oasis music.
