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

Beady Eye album from 2069

LONDON - Some parts from Q Magazine (June edition) published tomorrow.

Dave Sitek, a sun-dodging LA studio nutjob, informed them, "you're stuck in 1969, I'm from 3069 - let's meet in 2069".

One of Liam's songs, Soul Love, was remodelled beaneath a giant screen showing "2001: A Space Odyssey". Sitek says he didn't want to change its acoustic flavour, "But I thought, what if the guitar belonged to an astronaut who's never coming back? He's on the spaceship strumming, as his home planet gets smaller through the window".

Although their debut album felt like the freshest Oasis album in years, "People didn't like the first one" [I don't agree with Liam about this... the fans and even the critics liked it. It's just that he wanted it to sell more] "so we couldn't do that again" [this is ok :].
"Noel's sold over a million, ours sold over 700,000. That'll do, but it didn't sell 20 million, know what I mean?"

Noel's songs are "missing some balls". "He goes, if I gave our kid a tune with a horn section on it, he'd freak out, man. Like, you're just a lying little bastard." There is splendid brass on two tracks from BE.

A song by Liam is both provocative and conciliatory, Don't Brother Me. "It means, don't come knocking on my door when everybody's fucking found you out" - suggesting the shine may come off Noel as a frontman (in fact, he's not able to be a frontman and many of his fans already got bored, also leaving his gigs and asking for Liam, and realising about Noel telling lies).

"Noel wanted out, man, don't be fucking kidded", Liam seethes. "He always wanted to be a frontman. He loves being in the fucking spotlight, being in charge. All that crap about [simpering voice] This has been thrust upon me, let's deal with it together. Fuck off, you've been planning it for years, you cunt".

The other 3 members of Oasis stuck with you. "The proof is in the pudding, mate. I'm not a cunt, I'm a good fucking guy. I've never sacked anyone in my entire life. Noel has, on the other hand".

This no-nonsense band is properly bonded, Beady Eye are extraordinarily tightly knit. Almost exceptionally among bands - who tend to hate each other and scatter as soon as they go offstage - this lot go on holiday together (always to Como lake near Milan too). There's no longer any sense of captain and crew, "we're all in charge", says Liam. Andy and Gem talk of Liam's singing as if they're curators of some precious national treasure.

Tabloid bullshit: Liam has been ejected twice from a London pub - denied by the people working there.

Beady Eye hired Quest management's Scott Rodger (among his charges: Paul McCartney, Arcade Fire), then spent much of 2012 writing and demoing, breaking off only to play some gigs with re-formed Stone Roses, and to perform Wonderwall at the Olympics Closing Ceremony. Noel had passed on the offer (because they were not paying him, not because he was asked to mime, as he said - they knew he's not a singer). Liam, witheringly: "that tune needed to be heard, at that event, from this voice".

"The album's gonna come out, hopefully people'll like it. If not, we tour it, and try and catpure them that way. If that doesn't work, we'll go [mimes phone call] - Noel?" - Liam laughs, which says: I'll never, ever be that desperate.

more to add soon
(for the songs details, see previous post)

"Glastobury is a fucking nightmare". Liam said two years ago: ''The sound is shit and really quiet. And now it's like Bond Street with mud, with loads of celebrities walking around in their boots and umbrellas. I'm not having it.''
