Liam: Beady Eye is about having fun. Gem: jukebox classics for the pub

LONDON - Liam told Mojo: "We had the little fella who was taking charge, doing his thing and I think he just hogged it a bit. Now it's totally different."
When asked if it was liberating, Liam said: "I don't know man, nah, because I loved being in Oasis. Oasis was free too. But it had obviously got stuck in a rut, or it was moving that kind of way, and people don't like change. It's just nice being behind a microphone, being involved in music. I guess I just have more energy then our kid. He's grown up. The guy's writing songs for fifty year olds. It's about having fun isn't it? Fucking young people these days want to be old people. Sat listening to Bob Dylan and shit, thinking too much. It's about getting a sweat on, that's what it's about."
When asked how the last days of Oasis were, Liam said: "After some gigs there was no vibe, in the dressing room, and that it was like, fucking hell here we go again, fucking nobody speaking. I mean, when me and the lads were together we'd have great time but then when the other one came in... fucking hell, it was like someone had been shot. And that ain't fun. So this time we can have a laugh."
"How's it been writing songs for Beady Eye?" Liam: "They've all been writing songs for years. I'm still new to it so I don't have a formula yet. I don't go for walks in the park, or fucking read Oscar Wilde or shit like that. I just get a fuckking guitar and give it a fukking kick around the room. Write a couple of words down and see where it goes. And if it gets me sweating and that, I bring it to the guys and if they get involved, all the better."
Speaking on the bands name Liam said "It's just a change isn't it? I don't know man, it's just, "keep an eye out on the fucking fuck-wits" isn't it? We came up with a few other ones, but I'm not telling you what they were."

More about the album. Gem said: "We rehearsed it, we had it almost like a set, so we could put a lot of these songs down live. The word 'psychedelia' has been used. I always say that is a very large word, almost meaningless to some people. So I would just say 'colourful'. There's a bit of Brian Jones-era Stones, a bit of Elvis. When I say the psychedelia thing, I'd compare it to when The Kinks were slightly psychedelic. Most of it's stripped down in a kind of kitchen-sink way, and almost always trying to keep a light on it's feet, like a debut album should be. I still remember the term 'jukebox classic', tunes you'd stick on in the pub.
Liam said: "It's not soppy ballardy shit. They're some good ballsy tunes. I mean, a couple of tunes are just a bit slower than the rest, but they've got a bit of balls. It's 90 per cent rocking. If Oasis were black and white this is proper, proper Technicolour."
About 'Sons Of The Stage': "Ah man, that's fucking rocking. It was the first song we did actually. Our DJ Phil Smith used to play it before we came on at some of our gigs. So we rehearsed that one one, then we did 'We Love You' by the Stones, but we thought, Fuck it, this one is more obscure. I saw them at the Ritz in Manchester. They were a top band. They were Pulp before Pulp were pop."
