Big Day Out, Beady Eye win

GOONELLABAH - Blur lose (again), Beady Eye win. The news his band Beady Eye had been added to the 2014 Big Day Out line-up was an early Christmas present for Andy Bell.
The guitarist and his former Oasis band mates Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer, Chris Sharrock and former Kasabian guitarist (now bass guitarist) Jay Mehler make up the British rock band.
Beady Eye, along with the Deftones and The Hives, received the call-up to replace Blur in what has been a dramatic year for Big Day Out organisers.
"I found out about it on the night of our last gig before Christmas, so it was some good news to take with me to Christmas," Bell told APN.
"I'm very excited ... are you kidding? It's pouring with rain here (in London)."
It will be the band's first live performances in Australia after forming in 2009 following the break-up of Oasis and highly-publicised (by the media darling Noel...) rift between brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher.
Beady Eye is just getting back in the groove of live performances after a hiatus late last year caused by the injury of Archer.
The five-piece had been promoting their second album Be, released over the UK summer.
"Really we had just started playing gigs to promote the album, and it immediately got derailed," Bell said.
"Gem fractured his skull and had a broken leg (after an accident at home). We had to stop for two or three months, so we've only really just got back into it.
"We're just grateful that he's fine now.
Tell you what it didn't seem like three months; it seemed like a week.
We were trying on a day-to-day level to stay in touch with the latest on his recovery."
Be was produced by TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek, who has recently worked with the likes of Santigold, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and CSS.
"We had a great time making it," Bell said.
"We made some interesting music together with Dave."
Bell, who wrote four songs on the band's debut album, has once again penned several tracks.
The first single off Be, Flick of the Finger, was a collaborative effort amongst the entire band.
Interestingly, Bell said the band members take a Musketeer-type attitude towards their songs.
"We put them into the band and we all share the credit for all of them anyway," he said.
"It does help if you're just working for the best thing for the song rather than your own songs.
"Once you've given the song to the band it belongs to the band."
Oasis fans may or may not hear Beady Eye play any songs from the now-defunct group at Big Day Out.
"We're going to be playing the best tunes off the old album and the new album, and maybe throw in an Oasis song or two if we feel like it," Bell said.
"We have been doing a couple of old classics here and there."

SYDNEY - Beady Eye drummer Chris Sharrock has said that the band found it pretty funny when they were enlisted to replace Oasis’ old Britpop rivals Blur on the Big Day Out lineup.
When asked whether Liam Gallagher and co had a bit of chuckle when they found out they would be stepping in to fill Blur’s shoes on the 2014 BDO lineup, the drummer admitted it was pretty strange. “It was more like ‘Oh wow. That’s funny.’ The irony of it” he explained. “It’s no big deal though, really. That was all a hundred years ago, wasn’t it? We’re just glad to be out and going somewhere. Especially Australia.”
Beady Eye’s first ever visit to Australia will see them play one sideshow on January 27 at The Enmore in Sydney and perform second-last on the “Blue” stage at the BDO nationally – a festival which Sharrock says the band has always dreamt of playing. “We didn’t think we were doing anything in January, actually” he said. “This [opportunity] came in at the last minute. We’ve always wanted to play Big Day Out. I’ve never played it. I don’t know if the lads have ever played it.”
At their recent festival appearances in the UK Beady Eye have been playing a blend of songs off their two releases plus a couple of Oasis songs. Sharrock said that Australian fans can expect much of the same this January: “ I’d say it’s 60 per cent new, 30 per cent old stuff and 10 per cent some really old stuff” he revealed. “ And I think we’ll be sticking a couple of [Oasis covers] in [to] keep the punters happy.”
