the Britalian Milan site for pure Beady Eye, Pretty Green, Oasis, and City fans

fitter, happier and more productive Liam ^_^ ok Radiohead?

LONDON - On the day of his new band Beady Eye’s album release, Liam Gallagher has given hope to Oasis fans who are planning on living a long life.
Despite previous rants to say that Oasis would never return, the singer now refuses to rule out an Oasis reunion, saying he is “not going to say ‘never’, but at the moment no fucking chance.” For the time being though, Liam and his bandmates are focussed on Beady Eye, aiming to tour the band extensively this year.
He and bandmate Gem Archer appeared on The Absolute Radio Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show to discuss Beady Eye’s new album, and compare their experiences with the new band and Oasis. The pair offer a revealing look at the split and how it propelled them into creating Beady Eye only days after the abandoned gig that marked Oasis’s end.
Singer Liam reveals how he was misrepresented as the catalyst of the band’s split but that he felt it was brother Noel who “was sort of itching for a couple of scraps and that.” He and Gem also talk extensively about the night of the split, Liam telling DJ Chris O’Connell that “there might have been a couple of things smashed and that” and Gem revealing how he found out when Noel left the gig:
“When Noel came out I genuinely thought, when he sort of looked over, I thought he was going to say something like ‘Where’s my fucking iPod?’ or something, but he just kept walking…”
Time has made Liam more philosophical about the whole matter:
“You’ve got to laugh, you’ve got to laugh at it sometimes, you know. I know it means a lot to people, but bands that I liked when I was young split up, you know what I mean, so I understand the pain and that, but you’ve got to move on. No one’s dead… there’s other things going on in the world I suppose, but it’s just me and Noel being dicks isn’t it, and we’ve got to grow up I suppose.”
That philosophical side led him and his bandmates to form Beady Eyes - “just because Noel left doesn’t mean to say our musical journey comes to an end” – and it was the anger that led to the reports in the days after the split that Liam would continue Oasis without Noel:
“I just wasn’t going away quietly, you know what I mean, I was just being a bit stubborn. People were going ‘You’re not going to be able to…’, I was like that, ‘We’ll fucking see about that’. I was just making everyone sweat a little bit, but we knew that Oasis can’t carry if Noel’s not there, you know what I mean, it would be weird playing his songs and it would be weird for the fans, plus it would be weird for us.”
Liam also reveals how new band Beady Eye rose from the ashes of Oasis: “After the gig… well we didn’t do the gig, but that night in Paris we went back to the hotel, had a couple of beers, and sort of went ‘Right, let’s meet up in a couple of months and have a look at some tunes that we’ve got knocking about’. Couldn’t wait that long, we met up the following weekend, got cracking on it, and we haven’t stopped.”
Gallagher says he “can’t wait to go and play [the new album] live”, an album he found a very different experience to create when compared to his “very lonely” recording sessions for Oasis albums:
“Of course it would be Noel’s vision for his song and the overall vibe of the album and where the band would be at that point, but with this, because it’s a brand new band, we rehearsed it like a brand new band before we recorded. Like you would if it was your first album, you know. So the whole thing, just standing toe to toe and just getting involved, so when you go in the studio you know what you’re doing, you know where the map is.”
Guitarist Archer adds: “Even though we are the same guys, you can’t compare it, because even if one head in the room changes, it changes a lot, you know. But this was just a blast, man. It flew down, seven weeks in the summer in north London. It was great.”
So Beady Eye are set to be the band of 2011, with a fitter, happier and more productive Liam Gallagher at the helm. But even a more mellow Gallagher can still shake things up with a few words, and so without further ado, here are Liam’s pearls:
“You take Beady Eye out of the way and that, and there’s not much else going on in the music business I think.”
