Their fractious relationship produced some of the best music of the Nineties but soon collapsed into a protracted-standing feud.
And Liam Gallagher returned to form on Sunday, taunting his brother Noel in an epic Twitter tirade, declaring that his former Oasis band mate was a ‘fake’.
The Mancunian, 44, announced on Twitter that his first single from his new album As You Were would be called Not On the market.

To date, Noel has yet to answer his brother’s bizarre messages on the social networking site.
It is not the first time that Liam has lashed out at his brother on Twitter.
In a single memorable incident last year, he called him a ‘potato’ and a ‘yes man’.

Liam famously quit Oasis in 2009 just as the band was about to play a gig and the volatile duo have been at loggerheads ever since.
Getting frank about their physical conflict, Noel, 49, told Esquire magazine in 2015 that the band collapsed after a ‘massive fistfight.’
‘The last six months were f***ing awful,’ he recalled. ‘It was excruciating. Me and Liam had a massive, massive, massive fistfight three weeks before the world tour started.
‘And fights like that up to now would always be easy to rectify but for some reason I wasn’t going to let it go this time. I was similar to, “F**k this ****.” And there was an atmosphere all the way around the globe.’

The musician even blasted his brother in a foul-mouthed rant on stage that July, mid-way through a High Flying Birds gig at Cork’s Marquee venue.
He told a heckler on the show: ‘Liam’s at home looking at himself in the mirror. Fortunately, he’s still not as big a c*** as you are. Imagine that. Being the larger c***.’
Previously, Liam distinguished between ‘the band Noel’ and his brother ‘our kid,’ telling the Clash in 2003 that he ‘f***in’ despise[d]’ the musical side of Noel but still loved him, as a person.

He revealed: ‘He knows my feelings. Everyone knows my feelings, I am not shy with that.
‘I like our kid – as within the Noel that is not in a band and not within the music business and not all that bullsh** that people see he’s. However the band Noel? The f***in’ geezer that is in the band? I f***in’ absolutely f***in’ despise [him].
‘And I guess he feels the identical way. But should you speak to him, he’ll probably go: “Yeah, I do know; I hate both the c***s’.
