Bands Oasis has hyped or dissed?

MeanMonobrowHypeMachinefilter: I'm looking for a list of bands that have been hyped or dissed by Oasis. I know they're hyping Secret Machines right now, and have done the same for The Soundtrack Of Our Lives in the past. Quotes from Liam or Noel are very welcome.

Didn't they say they were going to be the next Beatles?

I imagine that's either hyping or dissing them, retroactively, based on what you think of Oasis...

This one turned out to be false, but when I read it I smiled...

Liam on Morrissey:
"Yeah, he's a real bird that one. I saw'm in LA when we was doing "The Truth" LP, and I felt I was watchin me uncle, sports coat and all singing tunes around the piano. Noel loves him, for me, he is for the blokes, if ya know what I mean."

Legend has it that Liam once said that he hoped the members of Blur "catch AIDS and die."

Noel recently called Jack White "Zorro on doughnuts." Noel is a goddamn wanker, but I have to say that's one good fucking line.

I remember reading that they dissed the Screaming Trees when they were on tour with them in the States back in the mid-'90s. When the Trees got wind of it, the Conner brothers threathened to squash them, or something to that effect.

Dissed:
Paul Weller


Noel is a long-standing fan/friend of Weller (they play on each other's records all the time) -- he was pissed at the Brit organizers, not Weller.

Can't provide a quote but Noel dissed Neil Young onstage at a show they were opening for him.

(They sounded great, but it took Neil one bar of Hey Hey, My My to blow them off the stage)

On Morrissey:
'Whatever you put down in a lyric, he'll do it better. He's the best lyricist I've ever read.'
Noel Gallagher

They also hyped the now defunct Cotton Mather (self-link, before anyone calls me on it). This is Noel in MOJO, August 2001:

What are you listening to these days?
"Cotton Mather, Kontiki. It was through you boys at MOJO; the review said they sounded like The Beatles on a 4-track. One Sunday I stuck it on... track 5, I thought, Bastards! It was like the Beatles. I thought if that isn't the best record I've heard in 10 years, then I don't know what is. It's one of my favourites of all time."

Liam also said ""I fucking wish it was [ours]. I play it all day at home."
