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.

Jeff Tweedy - WARM (Album Review)
Thu 13 Dec 2018
Jeff Tweedy’s first collection of solo songs adds up to a gentile album of warm Americana that stumbles along in joyous reverie and elegant inebriation. It’s a fine turn from the Wilco frontman, whose band’s 25 year musical catalogue has sometimes fallen flat, but whose previous album—2016’s ‘Schmilco’—seemed to reinvigorate and freshen their sound. These good vibes have continued on 'Warm'.
I Feel Like We Only Just Got Here: How Hop Along Fell Into Place On 'Bark Your Head Off, Dog'
Fri 14 Dec 2018
td#right {display:none !important;} Illustration: Sam Davies   The train is late. The trains are always late. Table the lost minutes. I absent-mindedly scroll Twitter in a glass shelter as the December cold gets its claws in. Before skipping over a review of the latest Jungle Book remake I’m stopped mid-feed by an autoplay video. Julia Roberts dances in a subway carriage for the New York Times. She grins, the plastic chairs smile back with yellow and orange teeth. The sound is off—my headphones are still playing Hop Along’s Not Abel. The weird thing is, that song won’t yield the floor. Instead it steps in to lead.
