more on Beady Eye, Liam: we created Beady Eye when still on (Oasis) fire

LONDON - Tom Meighan (last evening @ Pretty Green store) has revealed that he'd listened to part of Liam Gallagher's new material from his Beady Eye project in a hotel room about three months ago. He said he liked what he'd heard, even though it was unmastered. "I've heard Liam's record and it's fantastic," he revealed. "What he's doing is amazing.
"He was the frontman of Oasis. He's got nothing to prove any more. I love him and adore him but it's so not Oasis at all."
Liam named the band, and that rehearsals began with Beady Eye a few weeks after Noel left with the understanding that they would leave Oasis behind for good and play only new material, originated by Gallagher, Archer and Bell, and collectively worked up into co-written group compositions.
Liam on moving on from Oasis: "It was important not to sit and dwell on the past," he explains. "We came off tour and were still on fire. If we'd said, let's do something in a few months, or next year, the flame would have burnt out or we'd have got the fear. We were buzzing."
Andy Bell: "We're musicians, it's what we want to do, it's how we define ourselves. We could have sat at home, but what's the point?"
Gem Archer on the irony of working with Jeff Wooton, who plays guitar in the touring line-up of Damon Albarn's Gorrilaz: "You need irony in your life, and Damon Albarn has his head screwed on using him, he's a great musician."
The band have described the new songs as "light on their feet" and a move away from the wall of sound style of Oasis. Gem said " Psychedelia is a big word, but there are definite psychedelic moments in there. But there's also anti-psychedelic, very basic songs, and a lot of rock 'n' roll piano borrowed from Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis. Sound wise The Who, The Kinks and the Stones are there, that's the stuff in our blood.
Gem on working with Steve Lillywhite: "He was a ball of energy and made us focus and work quickly. It was that vibe again of trying to create a proper debut album - and that's exactly what I think we have done. It sounds exciting."
Thanks to Louise.
