Liam Gallagher Reveals Influences Behind New Album

Former Oasis frontman and all-round hellraiser Liam Gallagher has spoken out about his influences for his new album.

Liam Gallagher will always be a rock’n’roll star. Can you really see the man swapping his swagger and mic for perhaps a smart shirt and tie combination and settling down to life as an accountant or estate agent? Hmm…

Currently working on new material with a number of former members of Oasis, Liam Gallagher recently spoke out about which music path he is following. Speaking to New York radio station RXP the singer named T Rex and David Bowie as the main inspirations behind the new record.

With mates Andy Bell, Gem Archer and Chris Sharrock in tow, the group are currently going through writing sessions. Liam plans to head into the studio next month, with the album set for release this summer.
Speaking to the radio station, Gallagher had this to say: "Andy and Gem are on fire at the moment. There's a bit of T-Rex and Bowie on there, I’m telling you there's a good mix of psychedelia but there’s some good rock 'n' roll tunes on there".

Continuing, Liam Gallagher revealed his plans for the new album. "We're going to record halfway through April, we've got three weeks to do some tunes and if it's all cool we'll go back in June and finish it off" he said. "I'd like to have a tune out in October and then put another one out after Christmas and then the album in the summer."

The singer remained tight-lipped on the subject of his brother Noel Gallgher: "He'll go and do his thing and we'll go and do our thing and it'll be an exciting time for music not just in England but worldwide," he said.

The ex Oasis frontman of course couldn’t resist the cheeky dig at his brother saying: "Noel's record will be good and ours will be better."

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.

Baxter Dury, Étienne De Crécy, Delilah Holiday - B.E.D (Album Review)
Thu 08 Nov 2018
When Baxter Dury picks apart the ironies of the modern day on Only My Honesty Matters, in that deep, cigarette-gravelled voice, the minimalism of the instrumental beneath his rhythmic, spoken word monologue about “having a roll up” and “impotent white obvious people” listening to Florence and the Machine is almost forgivable. Almost.
Swearin' - Fall Into The Sun (Album Review)
Thu 01 Nov 2018
Space can be good, whether it’s allowing us to take a break from people or helping intrigue to blossom in the moments left unfilled in a piece of music. Left to our own devices, we are able to take stock, gain perspective and ultimately grow. It feels like Swearin’, who split in 2015 when guitarists and vocalists Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride ended their romantic and musical relationship, would back that sentiment.
