Beady Eye Ready To Conquer The World










Liam Gallagher is expecting his new band Beady Eye to be ''massive'' in 2011.

The group - consisting of the former members of Oasis, Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock - will release their new album, 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' in February and are expecting instant chart success.

Liam said: "I think we're going to be f***ing big, man. There's no point saying, 'Oh we might be kind of big,' otherwise what's the point? Because I know how good we are and I know how good we're gonna be.

"We're gonna be f***ing massive. Come back to us in a couple of years if I'm wrong and then fair play to you."

Will The Gallagher Brothers' Feud Ever End?



Will the Gallagher brothers' feud ever end? Let's hope not.

In the latest release from his post-Oasis band Beady Eye, off the band's debut full-length, Different Gear, Still Speeding (out in February), Liam continues his ceaseless war of words with brother Noel, again, this time riffing on the lyrics to Oasis' 1994 breakthrough hit, "Live Forever," which was penned by Noel: "Nothing ever lasts forever," Liam snarls in the new track, aptly-titled "Four Letter Word."

And it gets nastier: "You've had enough / Staring out of dead end eyes / I don't know what it is I'm feeling / A four letter word really gets my meaning," Liam sings. And the sonic sucker punch sounds good -- seductive strings swell with a muscular and, at times, psychedelic Britpop sound.

But one thing is for sure: You can take Liam out of Oasis, but you can't take Oasis out of Liam: In the clip, he stands stoic at the mic, sings coolly but tough in his nasal Manchurian drawl, and dons the unnecessary sunglasses that have long been part of his Britpop uniform.

And while Noel's presently laying low with his family, with some talk of a solo album in the not-too-distant future, we hope he'll retort soon, and help this sibling rivalry live forever.

All Liam Gallagher Wants For Christmas Is 'Peace And Quiet... Man'




















What do you get for the rock 'n' roll frontman who has it all?

Well, ex-Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher is quite clear what he'd like this Christmas Day.

“A bit of peace and quiet, man,” he says.

“I don't want for anything, me.”

Burnage boy Liam, married to former All Saints singer Nicole Appleton, explains: “We had Christmas at ours last year and we had everyone around, burping and farting and then falling asleep all over the place. So this year I've decided we're all going to a pub this time, and then it's someone else's problem.”

Ah, that's the festive spirit...

Creation Records Documentary 'Upside Down' Screening Details Announced



See the story of Oasis and Primal Scream's label next year.

The Creation Records documentary 'Upside Down' is set to be screened next year.

Featuring interviews with Noel Gallagher, Bobby Gillespie and founder Alan McGee, the film tells the story of how the label that was home to Oasis and Primal Scream among others began, the bands it discovered and its financial dissolution in 1999. See below for screening details.

Speaking to NME, director Danny O’Connor described the film as, "A celebration of Creation, not an appraisal or review, a celebration of swagger and an attitude."

He also spoke of how the screenings won't be conventional viewing sessions. "Basically, it’s going to be like a night out," he said. "Everyone who buys a ticket gets an aftershow pass and we're going to have DJs and hopefully a few bands playing. Also, at every single one of the parties, someone from the Creation story will be there. They might be from the bands or just a player in the story, like Irvine [Welsh] or Howard [Marks], but someone will be there."

McGee said that the film "captures the spirit of Creation completely, Danny gets it completely, he did some much research, he knows it all. The film is bang on".

Creation has been the subject of two biographies, but McGee said that neither "can hold a candle to the film. It captures it completely. The whole thing was just a weird success and every time I watch it back I'm just shocked we survived as long as we did. Watching it also makes me realise, I think for the first time, that I actually like all of the people involved and what they did. It’s just lucky everyone’s still alive to tell the story."

Upside Down will be appearing at various film festivals around the world, with scheduled UK appearances in Glasgow, Stornoway, Liverpool and Sheffield. Tickets details are yet to be announced.

See Upsidedownthemovie.com for more information.

Upside Down will be shown in the following cities (some venues yet to be confirmed)

San Sebastian Dock Of The Bay Film Festival (January 7-9)
Goteborg (January 28–February 6)
Glasgow (February 22)
Dublin (February 17 -25)

As previously reported Noel Gallagher is set to be a high profile guest on Mile Cane's album, contributing backing vocals to 'My Fantasy'.

Kane was keen to play down his contribution, in a recent interview he said: "This has all been hyped so much. He just sang harmony, he came in once and we did it, and it was great. It was just in the moment, really. I wanna have good drums, play guitar well, sing well, with no fucking scheme or bullshit behind it. I think if you want to be a rock star, all you should do is play rock 'n' roll!"

Liam Gallagher Never Wanted To Give Beady Eye's Music Away For Free

















Liam Gallagher was unhappy that his group Beady Eye gave their debut track, 'Bring The Light', away as a free download.

The singer - who is joined in his new group by former Oasis bandmates Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock - insists it wasn't his idea to showcase their first track 'Bring The Light' as an unpaid for download on the band's official website.

He said: "It got everybody off the sofa and humping around like a bunch of f***ing monkeys. And that's what we're after.

"It wasn't my idea to give it away for f***ing nothing though. I'll tell you right now, I wasn't having that."

The rocker also revealed he was responsible for naming the new group, but insists they would have been successful regardless of their moniker.

He added: "That was my idea. We'd come up with loads of names but that was the one that rang true for me.

"But it's not about the name anyway is it? It's about how good your music is. You could be called Veiny Love Stick, but if your music's s**t then it's s**t. At the end of the day, a name's a name. It's what you put into it that matters."

On This Day In Oasis History...



















"Whatever" is a single by British rock band Oasis, written by the band's lead guitarist Noel Gallagher. It was released 19 December 1994 as a stand-alone single bridging the gap between Oasis' debut album, Definitely Maybe, and their second album, (What's the Story) Morning Glory?. "Whatever" entered the UK Singles Chart at #3, their first single to enter the top 5, something every single released since, up to 2005's Let There Be Love, has also accomplished. The strings were played by the London Session Orchestra, arranged by Nick Ingham and Noel Gallagher.

The song joins the infectious pop-rock melodies of Definitely Maybe with the more sophisticated lyrics of (What's the Story) Morning Glory, preaching universal tolerance and the acceptance of all ideas and beliefs in a typically straightforward, Mancunian way. The first lines ("I'm free to be whatever I/Whatever I choose/And I'll sing the blues if I want") may have been Noel's reaction to his father's insistence that he join the building trade.

"Whatever" was released as a contender for the coveted position of Christmas #1, 1994
It is a testament to Noel Gallagher's all-conquering self confidence that he should predict "Whatever"'s success before he was even given a record contract, saying "In the beginning, there was a masterplan, to the extent that I knew that 'Whatever,' one of the first songs I ever wrote, would be a Christmas Top Five hit, but I think anyone who heard the song could have told you that."



When Oasis performed the song for Top of the Pops, they mimed and one of the cello players from the symphony was replaced by Bonehead, who clearly had no idea how his instrument is supposed to be played. Towards the end of the song, he gave up the pretense and started using the bow to conduct. A woman plays his rhythm guitar. The song was introduced by Damon Albarn of Blur who would later famously feud with Oasis. As Albarn introduced the song, the Gallagher brothers made hand gestures behind him, which only served to heighten the feud between the bands.

"Whatever" has been performed live by Oasis many times, sometimes with the ambitious symphony which accompanies the single version, sometimes without. They often end live versions of the song with lyrics adapted from the Beatles song "Octopus's Garden." They have also been known to add the lines "All the young blues....carry the news...", in reference to the Mott the Hoople song "All The Young Dudes". The "blues" are the fans of the Gallaghers' beloved Manchester City F.C.. At their famous performances at Knebworth in August 1996, the song was accompanied throughout by harmonica player Mark Feltham and is generally regarded by fans as one of the highlights of their set.



The B-Sides of "Whatever" were quite famous as well. One of them, "Slide Away" was already featured on their debut album, Definitely Maybe. The other two - "(It's Good) To Be Free" and "Half the World Away" - were later featured on The Masterplan, a collection of Oasis's best b-sides. "Slide Away" and "Half the World Away" would also be featured on Oasis' 2006 "best of" album Stop the Clocks, although "Whatever" itself was not included.

'Whatever' spent a total of 50 weeks in the UK Singles chart, more than any Oasis single to date.

Liam Gallagher 'The Time Is Right For Beady Eye'
















Liam Gallagher has said that the time is right for his new band Beady Eye, as the world is crying out for a great rock 'n' roll band.

Beady Eye were formed in 2009 from the remnants of Oasis, following the exit of key songwriter Noel Gallagher. Beady Eye retained Oasis members Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer, Andy Bell, and live drummer Chris Sharrock.

Liam told the NME in a recent interview that "The world is crying out for a great rock 'n' roll band. It has been for ages, man. That's why the time is right for Beady Eye. The time is right now. Even in the last ten years there's been nothing, You know what I mean? And it's not just that, there hasn't been one fucking good band. I'm sick of that attitude. There should be loads of fucking good bands out there, looking smart, making great music, fucking doing it. It's not about one band, there should be a load of them, but were are they?"

During the same interview Liam was asked had he heard of up and coming band Brother who say that they are the future of music.

Liam replied "Are you having a laugh, them little wankers? Yeah I have heard of them. What is it they call themselves, 'gritpop'? They're just little fucking posh lads with tattoos with man!"

Band member Andy Bell pointed out to Liam that "There's nothing wrong in being posh." Liam replied "Alright fair point, but there is if you've got fucking tattoos and you're trying to make a bit of a thug out of yourself. Nah, I'm not having them. I'm not having any new bands at the moment, to be fucking honest with you.

Beady Eye announced yesterday that they will be playing 2011's Isle Of Wight Festival, that takes place over the weekend of June 10th-12th 2011.

Carlos Tévez Will Definitely Maybe Be At City Next Season, Says Noel Gallagher



















So, Noel Gallagher, what do you make of Carlos Tevez's claims that he wants to leave Manchester City because he does not like the chief executive? "Well," said the rock star and City's most famous supporter. "He would be the first person I've ever heard of to leave a football club because he didn't like someone in the office."

Not buying it then? "Not at all. For a guy who can't even speak English how are we supposed to believe he has got a relationship with the executives in the first place, unless he's been trying to get himself a new deal anyway.

"He has two choices now if he means this – he either leaves or he retires. But I think there's more to it than meets the eye.

"Everyone was saying the same thing about Wayne Rooney: 'He's going, he's definitely going.' What is happening now is that Rooney's agent has set the bar when it comes to modern‑day transfer requests. But I would still put money on Tevez being here next season."

And what will be the crowd's reaction when City play Everton on Monday and Tevez turns out for the first time since announcing to the world that he wanted an Oasis-like split?

"He's been the best player we have ever had in my book and, as long as he is doing it on the pitch, they won't turn on him. I won't be booing anyway and I think it will be all right because he's not the kind of player who will go missing."

Gallagher is in Turin for Manchester City's Europa League tie against Juventus tomorrow. The Eastlands club have already qualified for the knockout stages. "It is disappointing because of the timing of it. Why not wait until the end of the season?

"The one thing that goes against Carlos is that he already plays for Man City so nobody can link him to us. He can't say: 'Oh I want to go to Man City because they are offering me £200,000 a week,' when he's already getting £280,000 a week out of us."

Gallaghers Still At War Over Oasis Split











Liam Gallagher is still not speaking to his brother Noel - almost 18 months after they split up Oasis.

The British band fell apart in August last year after singer Liam and guitarist Noel had a furious bust-up backstage before a concert in Paris, France.

Noel quit the group in a fury after the argument - and Liam, who went on to form Beady Eye with the remaining members of Oasis, has revealed the warring siblings are still not on speaking terms.

Asked by the NME what the brothers' "relationship" is like now, Gallagher replied: "I haven't got one with him."

And when asked whether his elder sibling has heard Beady Eye's upcoming debut album, he said: "Don't know. Don't care."

Liam Gallagher Never Had Any Doubts That He Could Be Successful Without Noel














Liam Gallagher has told the NME that he never had any doubts that he could be successful without his brother Noel, and reckons the group now have more freedom.

He added: "Did I have doubts about if I would be able to do it without Noel? Never. Not at all.

"I can actually do more without him. It feels different to Oasis, it feels we can do thinks we couldn't have in Oasis. I don't know what exactly but I definitely feel a lot freer.

"Oasis was so f***ing set in stone. I was gutted at the time we split up, but that's life innit? S**t happens, you move on."

Beady Bye Were Formed The Same Day Oasis Split















Liam Gallagher has told the NME that he, Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock immediately formed Beady Eye after Oasis split in August 2009 in Paris.

The singer said that the band were formed "that night" he added "We all went back to the hotel, got on the piss and it was like, 'Alright lets fucking do this.' I might have apologised to the lads, I might not have, I can't remember."

When asked about the fight with brother Noel, that finally split up the band after eighteen years Liam said: "It was just another argument between me and our kid had about the usual, just fucking.... him being him and me being me. End of.

It wasn't a big fucking deal, we'd had a lot worse. But I think it was just time, man. I don't think his heart was in it anymore anyway. He wasn't with us no more. So he started the argument, and that was it - I bit. Perfect. I played right into his hands. So there you go."

Beady Eye recently announced a short European tour for March 2011 including six dates in the UK that sold out in thirty minutes. Jeff Wootton and Matt Jones will perform live bass and keyboard duties for the groups live dates.

The band's debut studio album, 'Different Gear, Still Speeding', produced by Steve Lillywhite is released on the 28th February 2011.

Paul Weller To Design Clothes For Liam Gallagher's Clothing Label






















Paul Weller could be set to team up with his friend Liam Gallagher on his Pretty Green label, he has revealed.

The singer said he is in talks with the Beady Eye frontman about collaborating on a clothing line.

''It's still early days really, trying to do a tie up with Pretty Green, hopefully it's going to come off, I can't say for definite yet,'' Weller told BBC 6 Music.

Weller, who released latest album 'Wake Up The Nation' earlier this year, said he may also set up his own clothing range in 2011.

''It's just what I like and what I would like to have in my wardrobe really, it's purely selfish," he said.

Liam Gallagher Shocks The Locals With A Stockport Pub Gig













Stunned revellers were treated to the gig of a lifetime when former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher played an impromptu set at a Stockport bar.

The rock superstar turned up unannounced at the Town Bar in Heaton Moor, after delivering Christmas presents to mum Peggy, who lives nearby.

Liam chatted with regulars and posed for photographs.

He then stunned punters by grabbing a nearby guitar and performing Oasis and John Lennon classics along with Primal Scream bassist Mani, who was also there and lives nearby.

Town Bar owner Jo Hughes said: “He couldn’t have been any nicer and was chatting with customers, giving kids advice about the music business, he was a perfect gentleman.

“For a while he was tucked away in the corner and we didn’t even know he was there, and I couldn’t believe it when I looked over and realised it was him.

“The acoustic set just topped it all off really, there were about 20 people outside all singing along to John Lennon covers like ‘Shine On’, it was a great atmosphere and a great night.

“He’s welcome back any time, he’s a local lad whose mum lives nearby and he’s told us he’ll be popping in again next time he’s home.”

Liam, 38, is currently preparing for a UK tour with new line up Beady Eye next year, with the band’s debut album ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’ set for release in February.

Noel Gallagher And Mick Jagger Set For American X Factor?











Simon Cowell really means business in his quest for new judges on American X Factor.

He has already tapped up Rolling Stones lord Mick Jagger and is now after Noel Gallagher.

The ex-Oasis guitarist got a call last week with news of interest from bosses on X Factor USA.

Simon wants a huge name and securing the Manc's sharp-tongued services for next year's show would be a coup. X Factor fan Noel is mulling over the offer.

A source said: "Simon wants to go one better than American Idol, who have Aerosmith frontman Steve Tyler, and has set his heart on British rock 'n' roll royalty - with Noel and Mick top of his shopping list.

"Noel's manager met up for early talks and there is serious wedge on offer."

"Simon is a huge fan of Noel's songwriting and the no-nonsense attitude Oasis brought to Britpop in the Nineties. He'd be great to dish out feedback."

Feedback? It would be more like character assassinations for those inflated Yank egos.

Noel would be ideal but what would be his motivation? He has a young family and a mountain of solo material stored up for the grown-up stage of his career.

He has twice been asked for permission for an Oasis night on The X Factor and refused because the band - who had a No1 with The Importance Of Being Idle - were still on the road.

But he made a rumoured £50,000 when former X Factor winner Leona Lewis wrapped her lungs around their Stop Crying Your Heart Out for her second album Echo last year.

Now brother Liam is busy with new band Beady Eye and fashion label Pretty Green, the time may be right for Noel. Imagine WAGNER singing Vondervall? Priceless.

Meanwhile, Matt Cardle won this year's X Factor but yesterday fellow finalists Rebecca Ferguson and One Direction were each promised record deals by Simon.

His plan for Rebecca is to one day get her on Bond theme duties. She definitely has the pipes. And he has vowed to make One Direction stars, too.

I know what Noel would have to say about 1D: Bobbins.

What The NME Say About The Beady Eye Album




















The record is comfortingly familiar and yet frequently surprising. The production on it is far rawer and sparser then Oasis, mainly due to the fact that much of it was recorded in seven weeks.

Some of the songs were originally destined for a a future Oasis record, but others are far more recent.

Many of the old touchstones remain, like for example the Lennon-esque piano hook that nailed-on to single 'The Roller' is built around, or the fondness of big anthems like 'Kill For A Dream' and 'The Beat Goes On'.

But those moments are tempered with the stack-heeled glam-metal of 'Standing On The Edge Of The Noise' the lean 12-bar blues of 'Beatles And Stones' and the six-minute psychedelic lucid dream of 'Wigwam' whose opiated wooziness and wisful "sha-la-la-la-la" chorus amounts to the finest song Liam has ever written.

Taken from the Christmas issue of the NME (In Stores Now) and also digitally from NME.COM.

A number of online stores have 'Different Gear Still Speeding' for pre-sale that includes a DVD that contains a documentary called 'RAK Them Out' and the videos for 'Bring The Light', 'Four Letter Word' and 'Sons Of The Stage'

Liam Gallagher And Gem Archer On The Royal Wedding

Liam said "Good luck to them man, and fair play to them". He admitted that the bank holiday declared in celebration won't have much effect on him or new band Beady Eye.

He said that "We don't observe holidays in this band. It's all one big holiday, one big fucking day off.

Gem Archer said that we will all be sick of it by next year, but admitted "It's class" that most people will enjoy two days off work that week.

Beady Eye On Christmas
















Beady Eye members Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer and Andy Bell have discussed with the NME what they will each get up to over Christmas.

Charismatic front man Liam will be getting up to the usual this Christmas, he said "I'll be sitting there all day, getting wankered. Probably eating loads an' all. Same as ever".

When asked what his kids wanted from Santa he said "Loads of fucking toys."

Andy Bell admitted that Christmas is always the same for him filled with kids, dogs, presents, films, TV and booze. Andy said that "I'm just sat there on a sofa with a can of lager in my hand shouting at people.

Beady eyed fans should keep a eye out for Gem Archer who admitted that he will be standing in the back of the queue of his local Argos, taking back unwanted presents.

Liam Gallagher On The Student Riots











Liam Gallagher has said that he thought the recent student riots in London made for great television.

In an interview with the NME, Liam said "I loved it man, fucking loved it. I'm into the violent side of it, I thought it made for great TV. I still think they should get a Fucking job, though".

"I'd have loved to have gone to college and all that when I was that age, but we couldn't afford it, you know. Some of us had to go and dig holes on the site with fucking Murphy and Mick".

"But I'm into people showing their true emotions and getting f**king wound up about things. It's better then being dead ain't it?".

Liam Gallagher has told NME that he thinks Beady Eye's debut album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' contains songs "as good as 'Definitely Maybe', if not better".

The singer was speaking in a world-exclusive interview in this week's Christmas issue of NME, on UK newsstands tomorrow (December 15) and available digitally worldwide.

He declared the album, out February 28, a "fucking top debut".

Gallagher said: "The musicians are better [than Oasis circa-'Definitely Maybe'], without a doubt. I'm singing as well as I ever have." He added that the album is "up there, no question" with 'Definitely Maybe' and added that "we're gonna be fucking massive".

Elsewhere in the interview Gallagher gave his views on new bands including The Vaccines and Brother. He branded the former "boring" and accused Brother of being "little fucking posh lads with tattoos".

Liam also spoke about his relationship with Noel Gallagher following Oasis' split in August 2009.
