Liam Sounds Sane. For Once…

24 January, 2011



From Danger Bird Records:

“There was never any fear with Oasis,” says Liam, “You knew people were going to dig it because it was Oasis. But I’ll be honest, when the gigs come round with Beady Eye, we’ll be shitting it, because it’s a new thing. We’ve been rehearsing the live set for the last two weeks though and it’s sounding great. The template for Beady Eye is the same one we had for early Oasis. Put out a lot of great singles not on the album with great B-sides, keep it flowing. What happened with Oasis was you’d end up on an 18 month world tour and you wouldn’t have any time to put new music out. When you get big, it slows you down. When you start out fresh, it’s all about the tunes. And remember, we’re a new band, we’re not going to get above ourselves and start thinking we can play stadiums and arenas, we don’t want to jump the gun, we want to go out and do small gigs, get back into that vibe then do another album, and take it gradually, stay in the moment of being a new band.”

That sounds… level headed. Normal, intelligent, in fact. Maybe Oasis splitting really was the best thing for everyone…

This is Actually Good…

I don’t care that it’s basically a rehash of “All You Need is Love”, or any other middle-late Beatles songs for that matter. As generic as it is, this is a top tune. Maybe Beady Eye’s new album will transcend being “tolerable” and actually be good. Only the time will tell.

Also, is Andy Bell giving a throwback to his awesome specs from 1994 Glastonbury?

That’s A Lot Better…

I dare say that this is much better than Liam and Co.’s first single…

Liams Lost It Completely…

I don’t think he cares in the slightest about what he says in interviews anymore and, yet, instead of coming off as “devil-may-care” Liam from the good ol’ days, he comes off as a near-geriatric shell of his former self, who talks a lot and doesn’t have a lot to say.

From NME:

Liam Gallagher has told NME that he thinks Beady Eye’s debut album ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’ contains songs “as good as ‘Definitely Maybe’, if not better”.

I miss Noel…

Beady Eye.

I’m not saying its bad. I’m not saying its fucking terrific, either. At least its music. I look forward to hearing more.

Happy Birthday, Liam G.
