Carlos Tevez @ Beady Eye. Liam: we don't fear anyone

MANCHESTER - Manchester City striker Tevez was at their gig (you can see him around minute 2:00). 

Life after the death of Oasis begins for Liam Gallagher with his new band Beady Eye. Metro chatted with the 38-year-old musician, who declared "he is starving for success and fears no one."

Are the beginnings of Beady Eye as exciting as they were for Oasis?
Of course. Any beginning is exciting. Our songs are just crazy, and we feel just great. We’re going to kill everything. We’ve got what we need for that.

The album sounds very spontaneous. It sounds like a response to Oasis, a band who became maybe like a routine to you.
When you’re in a big machine like Oasis, it works by itself. Everything is becoming a routine, so it gets sometimes boring. We needed to create something new and fresh. That’s why it sounds spontaneous.

What was your inspiration for Different Gear, Still Speeding?
Rock ‘n’ roll. Nothing else. We just wanted to have fun. And that's rock ‘n’ roll: no brains, just feelings. It’s as simple as that.

People will compare Beady Eye to Oasis. How are you prepared to respond to your fans and critics alike?
We are Oasis. Oasis became big because of the people who were in the band. We can do the exact same thing with Beady Eye. We are starving for success and we do not fear anyone. Our music is universal, and people will like it whether they live in Peru or in Paris. And if some people don’t like it, it doesn’t matter.

There is a huge electro-pop scene in England. Are you interested in that sound?
I don’t care. Why would we play dance music? It would be against our influences, against rock ‘n’ roll and against the Beatles. We’re not going to play dance music just to be in fashion. It would be like wearing a dress. To me, those bands are just shit.

On this tour, you’re going to play in small venues. Are you tired of stadiums?
We’re a new band and new bands play in small places. We have only released one album. We’re not going to play in a stadium – it’s not adapted for the way we play.

That’s courageous. You could have chosen to play Oasis songs in a stadium.
Maybe we’re not as arrogant as people think. We play it cool. Everything has its time.

In the English press, not a week goes by without an article on Beady Eye and Oasis.
It’s amazing how Oasis makes its own publicity on the back of Beady Eye. People have never been so interested in Oasis since it finished.

You have the reputation to appreciate no other band. Is there not one band that you like at the moment?
Nothing new interests me, but we agree with Beady Eye to say that Miles Kane (of The Rascals / The Last Shadow Puppets fame) makes really good music.

You’re well known for your thundering declarations. What would you say about this album. That it’s the best album of the year? The album of the century?
No, I won’t say that. I let you say it.
