London: Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher says he doesn`t take good care of his CDs and sometimes leaves them in the microwave.

The 39-year-old insists his compact disc collection is not as important to him as old vinyl records, so he doesn`t worry about keeping them in pristine condition, reported Q magazine.

"I`ve got thousands in my house. I hate CDs, I`ve got a load of CDs, but to me they`re just clutter. I don`t take care of them. They`re everywhere. They`re in the pillow, in the microwave. With a record, you`re a bit more precious about it. You put it on, you enjoy it, then you take it off, you give it a clean and you put it away where it`s meant to be," Gallagher said.

The `Bring the Light` hitmaker also admitted he is not a fan of many new bands and albums and instead prefers listening to retro records.

"The first Kasabian album was great. I thought, Yeah man, that`s got me moving again. I don`t really listen to new stuff, I`m too wrapped up in the old stuff," he added.
