Liam Gallagher: 'New Band Will Be Bigger Than Oasis'

The one-time Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has claimed that his new outfit Beady Eye will be better than Oasis, stating that his former group were a “pop band”.

Now the dust has settled since the final row that ended Oasis, the working relationship between Gallagher brothers Liam and Noel still seems very much over. With both siblings still not speaking, the pair have been occupying themselves with their own individual projects.

Noel being the quieter of the two has been laying-low and tight-lipped on his next move in the music world. Playing some one-off shows at London’s historic Royal Albert Hall earlier this year, the guitarist contributed some special shows as part of the Teenage Cancer Trust concerts.

Liam on the other hand has been busy forging a new group made up from the remains of his previous band, also know as Andy Bell, Chris Shorrock and Gem Archer, who are all ex-Oasis bandmates. Speaking to NME about his new project Liam had this to say, “It’ll be bigger (than Oasis). I’ve got no doubt about the music, no doubt about me. It’s proper rock ’n’ roll. Oasis was a pop band compared to what we’re doing.”

Beady Eye’s debut single is expected later this year with an album set for release in summer 2011.

Imagination Is Key: How The Sheepdogs Are Keeping Rock 'N' Roll Colourful
Wed 31 Oct 2018
It’s virtually impossible to do anything completely new in the realm of rock'n'roll, especially when some of the greatest acts of all time have already pioneered, innovated and explored the genre to its very limits and beyond. Does that mean like-minded young bands should just lazily imitate their predecessors or even give up? Hell, no. They need to follow the example set by the Sheepdogs, write the best songs possible and spice them up with as many stylistic and instrumental flavours as their talents will allow.
Richard Ashcroft - Natural Rebel (Album Review)

Photo: Robin Pope Here’s a thing. Do you remember when Rod Stewart was cool? Probably not. It’s been over 40 years since Faces, the original lad-rockers, split. Perhaps you remember when Sting was cool instead, then? But once the Police went the same way as Stewart’s mob, their frontman launched a similarly disappointing solo career.
