"The bees are vanishing," he insists

It's important to keep yourself busy when you stop working, so The Quietus is delighted to hear that Liam Gallagher has started a new hobby to fill the void left by his older brother Noel leaving Oasis.

The singer has thrown his weight behind a campaign to save Britain's honeybees, by teaming up with a man in a giant bee costume to promote the film Vanishing of the Bees.

He told the The Sun: "You've got to look after the birds and the bees, man.

"The bees are vanishing. We've got to save them before they all buzz off. It's important. It's a really worthwhile cause.

"Without them we're in proper bother. I like honey. If it weren't for honey, I'd have a rough voice."
