Liam Gallagher Blasts Un-Ambitious Bands
















Liam Gallagher says bands who don't want hit records are like ''d**ks'' who wear sun cream on holiday.

The former Oasis star wants his new band Beady Eye to be massive all over the world and he thinks musicians who don't want success are as gutless as safety-first holidaymakers.

He angrily said: "It's like people who go on holiday, putting sun cream on. Do you want a tan or what, you d**k? You go on a top holiday somewhere hot and you come back whiter than white. We're made to sound arrogant because of time wasters like that."

Liam's ambition for Beady Eye is for them to be as big as The Beatles, and even more popular than his first band Oasis.

Liam's bandmate Andy Bell shares his lofty ambition and thinks all bands want to match the Fab Four's incredible accomplishments.

The guitarist said: "All bands deep down want to do that. The Strokes, Elbow all of them. If you sat any band in a room and said, 'Do you want to be as big as The Beatles?' they'd all say yes."

Miley Cyrus Is Mad Fer It



















Miley Cyrus is using Oasis as the inspiration for her world tour.

The singer/actress is currently on the South American leg of her Gypsy Heart World Tour but is taking a little piece of Oasis with her.

“I saw Oasis live a while back and I really loved how they kept asking for requests to keep the audience involved,” explains Miley.

“If you want to see someone just dance around you can watch it on DVD but I want this to be about everyone including the audience so I am trying to do something very similar because I know that’s what I would want to see.”

Kelly Jones Added To Japan Benefit Line-Up



Kelly Jones has been added to the bill of the Japan Disaster Benefit show taking place this weekend at Brixton Academy. The Stereophonics frontman will be playing an acoustic set and joins Richard Ashcroft, Beady Eye, The Coral, Graham Coxon, Primal Scream and Paul Weller for what is sure to be a legendary night.

XFM Radio have also confirmed they will be recording the show for a live broadcast on the evening featuring live performances and interviews.

The show was been hastily arranged to help benefit those who have been affected by the recent earthquakes and subsequent tsunami in Japan. It was announced on Tuesday 22nd March, and tickets went on sale for this very special one-off event at 9am on Friday 25th March and sold out within minutes. Doors will open at 5.30pm on Sunday.

Beady Eye’s Liam Gallagher said “We’ve always had close ties with Japan and great affection for our fans out there. We’ve been saddened by the horrific TV images of the disaster. Our hope is that this benefit concert can help the people of Japan.”

“We’re glad to be able to support such a great cause and help the people of Japan in any way we can.” - The Coral

A statement from Primal Scream reads; “We are humbled to play the Japan Disaster Benefit and help in contributing to the relief efforts and as Mani is unable to attend due to prior family commitments, are pleased to announce we will be joined for one night only by Sex Pistols legend Glen Matlock.”

"I really wanted to do something to show solidarity and sympathy with the Japanese people. Japan is a place I've been to many times in the last 30 years. I've made many friends there and have been treated very well. They are a kind race of people. My heart goes out to them. The lineup is great for the show and it’s gonna be a brilliant night." - Paul Weller

Noel Gallagher Demands Hotel Room Move To Avoid Russell Brand Billboard















British rocker Noel Gallagher demanded to move hotel rooms during a recent stay in Los Angeles - because he refused to have a suite overlooking a giant billboard of his pal Russell Brand.

The funnyman is currently on the promotional trail for his new movie Arthur, in which he appears opposite Dame Helen Mirren.

The former Oasis star Gallagher was left fuming when he settled into a hotel room, only to realise he would have to look out at his friend's face on a poster for the film.

Brand tells Britain's The Sun, "Noel's in L.A. at the moment and outside his hotel window he said all he can see is a great big billboard for Arthur.

"He said they showed him the room and the bloke asked, 'Is there anything you'd like to change, sir?' He said, 'Yeah. That f***ing poster. I want another room', so they moved him."

On This Day In Oasis History...



On March 30th 2000, Liam Gallagher was interviewed by Carson Daly in New York for MTV's Total Request Live.

Liam Gallagher Insulted By People Siding With Noel












Liam Gallagher is insulted people think his brother Noel Gallagher was "carrying" Oasis.

The singer formed Beady Eye with the remaining members of the 'Lyla' rockers - Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock - when Noel quit the band in August 2009, and admits he was surprised so many people wrote off his chances of musical success without his older sibling.

He said: "I'm insulted that people think Noel Gallagher has been f***ing carrying this band for the last 18 years.

"People were saying [about Beady Eye], 'Oh it's going to be f***ing s**t.' It's like, are you tripping or what?"

The 'Bring the Light' singer is upset some critics and music fans have seemingly chosen sides since the brothers combusted, and he thinks people should give them both a chance on their own.

He added: "The Noel versus Liam thing, I'm a bit saddened by it, that some people feel like they need to pick sides. Like, I wouldn't go and see The Stone Roses and be like, 'I hate John Squire but I'm into Ian Brown,' or whatever."

Charity Japan Gig Promoters Criticise Ticket Resale













Promoters for a charity gig set up to raise money for victims of the Japanese tsunami have criticised websites for allowing people to re-sell tickets for profit.

SJM, who are organising the show with the British Red Cross, have branded the sites "highly distasteful".

The gig at London's Brixton Academy features Beady Eye and Primal Scream.

They said: "We strongly disapprove of profiteering from the misery and suffering of the people in Japan."

Tickets for the show taking place on Sunday 3 April are being sold for over double their original value after they went on sale last Friday (25 March).

'Very disappointing'

Primal Scream, Blur's Graham Coxon, Richard Ashcroft, Paul Weller and The Coral will play alongside Liam Gallagher's new band.

SJM said they had asked companies involved in the secondary/reselling ticket market to "delist the event".

"It is very disappointing that one secondary reseller and eBay continue to offer these charity fundraiser tickets," it added.

Liam Gallagher Blames Poor Vocals On Brother Noel



















Liam Gallagher has conceded his singing during Oasis' doomed final tour was dreadful, and he blames his poor performances on the earphones he wore to drown out brother Noel's loud guitar.

The Beady Eye frontman attracted swathes of criticism for his half-hearted vocals towards the end of his former band's career as he often shouted his lines or cut them short.

Gallagher has now admitted his singing in recent years has been "s**t" but he's adamant Noel is responsible because he turned his guitar up too loud, forcing the frontman to use noise-reducing earphones onstage.

Gallagher tells Nme, "I've been getting a right kicking! I didn't know I sounded that s**t, but I'm gonna explain this now, right? I was using them in-ear monitors, and that isolated me from the band. I had to, cos our kid (Noel) was, like, up to 900 (on the guitar amps), so f**king loud."

Liam Gallagher Wants Beady Eye To Be Bigger Than The Beatles











Liam Gallagher has said he wants his new band Beady Eye to be more successful than The Beatles.

The singer once claimed he wanted to be more famous than Oasis but now he's told NME that he's setting his sights higher.

'I want to be as a big as The Beatles. F*** being as big as Oasis, man, you know what I mean?'

But the star wasn't getting too cocky - he admitted that it probably wouldn't happen.

'I want to be bigger than The Beatles. That's what we're dealing with and whether we do or not - and we probably won't - but who cares?

'It's just the f***ing name of the game. Yes, we want to sell a s**tload of records, play stadiums and inspire s**tloads of kids over the f***king universe. Deep down that's what I wanna do...but not just yet.'

Gallagher also used the interview to mouth off against The Strokes and Elbow.

Liam rubbished The Strokes' frontman Julian Casablancas for acting like it was a 'chore' for him to be in the band.

He also attacked Elbow saying they had a 's**t name for a band'.

'That's like calling yourself The Chins or The Knees or something!'

Beady Eye Support 'Old Friends' In Japan















Beady Eye organised a charity concert for earthquake victims in Japan because they have ''old friends'' in the country.

The 'Bring The Light' band decided to organise the event in London - which will include performances from Primal Scream, Paul Weller and Richard Ashcroft - because they have always been treated with respect in Japan both as members of Oasis and with their latest group.

Speaking ahead of another charity show, for Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, last Friday (25.03.11), guitarist Gem Archer said: "There's a real long relationship. I mean, some of these Japanese fans are old friends now, let alone the people in the record companies and whoever else we've met. So then this idea came up of, 'Why don't we just get something together and then give all the money to the Red Cross'. "

The musician added he is pleased with the reception to Beady Eye - which is comprised of all the members of Oasis minus Noel Gallagher - in Japan, with their debut album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' being a hit and a tour selling out weeks in advance.

He told Absolute Radio DJ Ben Jones: "We are meant to be going, I think, in about three weeks, four weeks, and those shows all sold out in the blink of an eye.

"It's a small club tour, but they were like bang on it, and they stuck our album at number one."

The earthquake charity concert will take place at London's 02 Academy in Brixton on April 3 with all proceeds going to the British Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal.

Highlights from the week long shows for Teenage Cancer Trust can be heard on Absolute Radio in the UK.

Beady Eye Interview With Ben Jones














BEN JONES INTERVIEWS BEADY EYE

BJ: Ben Jones
BE:Members of Beady Eye

BJ: Alright, this is Ben Jones, it is Absolute Radio, and we're backstage at the Teenage Cancer Trust shows at the Royal Albert Hall, and I’m delighted to say that Beady Eye are here. Good to see you.

LG: Good to see you, mate.

BJ: Rare that you get the opportunity to talk to a band pre-show. Do you get nervous before shows like this?

LG: Not really, no, don’t get nervous at all, as long as the sound is alright everything is great, you know what I mean, its when the sound isn’t up to scratch, that when you kind of get the nerves set in because you think ‘Oh God, its going to be like this’, but if the sound’s good, we’re good.

BJ: And in terms of acoustics, you don’t get much better than the Royal Albert Hall do you.

LG: Yeah, so they say.

BJ: Now some people wanted this project to kind of maybe fail, and the success of the tour and the success of the album have, yet again, proved these people wrong. Thats a nice position to be in, a comfortable position to be in, that you proved the critics wrong maybe?

GA: Oh they of little faith. It’s not their job to have belief is it.

BJ: You had the belief, you knew it was going to be alright, yeah?

GA: Yeah, born with the belief.

BJ: Tell us a little bit about those early sessions when you went in, and it was only really a couple of weeks post the conception of the band that you decided you had a lot of songs and you wanted to get into a studio and record them, they came quite quickly, is that right?

GA: Yeah, I think the lads started demoing pretty much after all that happened, and sent me the tunes up and that, and I learned my part and they just kept on sending me tracks up, so yeah, it was pretty quick really, few weeks.

BJ: And tell us a little bit about the subject matter of the songs, where did the ideas for some of these tracks come from, or were they songs that had always been kicking around in various heads?

GA: The lyrics to the tunes were written over a long period of time I think, really. I mean, some of them go back a few years, some of them are brand new, but just basically the same way you always write songs, just personal, whatever, you know, things that rhyme.

BJ: Liam, tell us a little bit about that first show as Beady Eye, when you stepped out onto stage, what do you remember?

LG: It was great, man, but we’d been rehearsing for a couple of months before that so we knew what was going down, all we had to do, we’d done some great gigs in front of no one, you know what I mean, so we just had to put the kids in there. A bit of nerves and that, but a bit of relief that people seemed to take to us, you know what I mean, and it’s only going to get better. There’s no one screaming for Noel or Oasis or obscure songs, so that was nice.

BJ: You’ve played these gigs before as part of Oasis, and obviously Noel’s got a good history with the Teenage Cancer Trust shows as well. When you get that call from Roger Daltrey I guess its kind of difficult probably to say no isn’t it?

LG: Well I did last year, I said no last year, but only because my kids were going to Disney World and that. I don’t think he was too pleased, but there you go, man. I mean, how do you tell the kids that you’re not going to Disney Land, but here we go, forget that, we’re back here.

GA: You should do it like that advert, you know, ‘We’re not going to Disney World’.

BJ: Yeah, ‘We’re not going to Disney Land’.

BE: Yeah, so having to say no to him was a bit heavy, you know what I mean, I was sweating a lot that day.

BJ: He called you, he described you as ‘a sweetheart’ on the show to us not that long ago, and of all the phrases, of all the words that are often used to describe Liam Gallagher ‘sweetheart’ wouldn’t have been if I was on Family Fortunes it wouldn’t have been one of the ones that I’d necessarily gone for.

LG: Yeah.

BJ: What’s your relationship like with him?

BE: Me and Rog go way back, he’s a sweetheart too. We’re just two little sweethearts lost in this world of straights.

BJ: You started off on Twitter and you got like 190,000 followers in no time at all, and yet you haven’t Tweeted for a while. Have you got bored, have you moved on to something else, what’s the deal with that?

LG: I only Tweet when someone’s got it majorly wrong, you know what I mean, that’s the way I use it. If someone’s barking up the wrong tree I sort of point them in the right direction, but other than that I’m not into Tweeting, its rubbish.

BJ: Tell us a little bit about the clothing company. We are literally just around the corner, Absolute Radio is just around the corner from your store. Where do these ideas come from, do you actually design all the clothes yourself? Talk it through.

LG: Yeah, well its inspired by the 60s and that I suppose, that’s about it, bands and stuff. I’m not reinventing the wheel, I like that kind of style, you know what I mean, so that’s what we do. Me and Nick Holland, there’s a guy who does it with us, he just comes round and goes through our wardrobes, and anything that looks rubbish or a bit tired we sort of just breathe a bit of life into it.

BJ: Gem, one of the questions I wanted to ask you, there has been a lot of talk post the Oasis split that you guys were also going to be working with Noel and also working with Liam further down the line and following on from the success of Beady Eye, which is very much now a new band, what is the deal with you guys working on Noel’s projects?

GA: There’s always a lot of talk, so much myth and rumour and all that. We should have pulled up on this earlier, there’s no projects in our world, this is a band, so that I suppose informs this answer, there’s no projects going down, it’s a band, simple as, or, at a push, a group.

BJ: The live shows have been getting some tremendous reviews, and you’re doing this very special gig on April the 3rd for the Japan Tsunami Appeal.

GA: Yeah.

BJ: Tell us a little bit about that, because it kind of comes across as an ‘and friends’ gig when you look down the list of who’s playing.

GA: Well that’s exactly it. Liam came up with the idea because we are meant to be going I think in about three weeks, four weeks, and that all sold out in the blink of an eye. It’s a small club tour, but they were like bang on it, they stuck our album at number one, there’s a real long relationship. I mean, some of these Japanese fans are old friends now, let alone the people in the record companies and whoever else we’ve met, so then this idea came up of ‘Why don’t we just get something together and then give all the money to the Red Cross’. And you know what? It is possible, this took 10 days to bring together and it sold out in an hour.

BJ: It’s incredible how some of these gigs take months and months and months to organise.

GA: Well there you go.

BJ: And yet I got this email a few days after, and it was put together very, very quickly. Who organised it?

GA: Liam was sort of texting me everybody’s replies, like forwarding or whatever, you know, and it was all in the total spirit of it, like a wop bop a loo bop, that was from Bobby Gillespie, let’s have it.

LG: Everyone was buzzing, man. I mean, obviously there was a few people that couldn’t make it and that, but we let them off this time.

BJ: Well listen, have a tremendous show, and I know that there’s a lot of people outside desperate to see Beady Eye at the Royal Albert Hall. Congratulations on the success of this new band.

BE: Thank you.

Liam Gallagher: 'Twitter Is Rubbish'



















Liam Gallagher has branded Twitter "rubbish".

The Beady Eye frontman claims that he's not a big fan of the micro-blogging site despite the fact his own Twitter page, Twitter.com/liamgallagher, with over 200,000 followers.

"I only tweet when someone's got it majorly wrong, you know what I mean? That's the way I use it," he told Absolute Radio.

He added: "If someone's barking up the wrong tree I sort of point them in the right direction, but other than that I'm not into tweeting - it's rubbish."

Gallagher's Twitter page was regularly used to promote his Pretty Green clothes label, although he last used it to spread some Christmas cheer in December.

Alan McGee Credits Model With Oasis Discovery












Music legend Alan McGee has sourced plenty of great bands during his years in the business including The Libertines and Primal Scream – but his greatest discovery owes itself to a certain female figure.

The Glasgow mogul – who founded the legendary Creation Records – was just a love-struck young man when he entered King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut on the city's St Vincent Street in May 1993.

Waiting to be set up with a model friend of his sisters, McGee took little note of the floppy haired Mancunian brothers raggedly setting up their instruments on the nearby stage.

However, a cruel twist of fate would result in McGee finding one of the greatest rock n’ roll bands in British music history.

Speaking to The Hour, McGee told the real story behind his discovery of Oasis and how he plans to cope with retirement from the industry he loves.

“I didn’t go looking for Oasis,” explained McGee. “I was actually chasing a model at the time but I can’t say who because she was my sister’s friend.

“The girl didn’t show up in the end but me and my sister stayed to watch this band, who turned out to be Oasis. So that’s actually why I was there.

“Most of my best signings have been to do with chasing women. It helps because girls usually know what’s good in music.”

Now retired from the cut-throat music industry, the man who discovered some of Britain’s biggest bands is now working behind a film documenting his days with Creation Records.

Aptly titled Upside Down, the movie tells the story behind one of music’s biggest and most chaotic movements and how Britpop would change the nation’s musical tastes for years to come.

Although McGee admits that the days of The Beatles and Oasis are long gone he still has high hopes that his home city can produce some more music greats – even without his legendary eye for talent.

“I like some Scottish new bands. I like Glasvegas obviously and I like Pete Macloud.

“There are three cities that are really important in UK for music. Probably the most important city is Manchester, but Liverpool and Glasgow are also important.

“I think it’s the fact that these cities are all cultural centres for Irish people and that celtic-ness, it just kinda works."

Liam Gallagher Has His Beady Eye On New Fans



Liam Gallagher is playing festivals this summer to attract new fans to Beady Eye. The band are playing several festival dates - including slots at Reading and Leeds and the Isle of Wight Festival - and the 'Four Letter Word' singer is keen to showcase his new music to people who might not necessarily be interested.

He said: "This is the name of the game, to f***ing get new fans. I mean, obviously all the Oasis fans jumped on board and got involved and all that and liked it. But the music is there for anyone. Beady Eye is for anyone." Liam - who formed his new group with the remaining members of Oasis after his brother Noel Gallagher quit in August 2009 - insists he is hungry to prove himself again to wide range of music fans.

He added to NME magazine: "Hopefully, there's going to be people out there that are getting a little bit more from Beady Eye than what they did from Oasis. There's not a day that goes by when you don't want to get up and f***ing mean something to people."

Liam Gallagher Mocks Noel At Beady Eye's Teenage Cancer Trust Show












Singer also exchanges words with a fan at London's Royal Albert Hall.

Liam Gallagher took a dig at his brother Noel during Beady Eye's Teenage Cancer Trust show in London last night (March 25).

The former Oasis frontman made a number of remarks about his former bandmate as he performed at the Royal Albert Hall.

"This is Beady Eye," he announced as he swaggered onstage. "This is not a Noel Gallagher concert."

Throughout the show Liam continued to take pot shots at his brother.

"We were going to sit down to sing the next song," he told the crowd before launching into 'Bring The Light'. "But apparently someone who played here last year stole all the stools. Apparently he's got a nice little collection going on and all."

Later he quipped: "Where's Noel when you need him, eh?"

Noel played two shows for the charity at the same venue last year. During one of those shows he took a pop at Liam over his Pretty Green clothing range.

Beady Eye played a similar set to that featured on their recent UK tour, showcasing their debut album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding'. They played 'WigWam' for the first time live.

Liam's name was often chanted by the crowd, but the singer wasn't happy with all the attention he received. He had an angry exchange with one fan after the crowd member seemingly threw something towards the stage.

"If you're going to throw something at me throw something hard," the singer sneered. "Who the fuck comes to a rock n' roll gig with a bit of lime, soft lad?"

Beady Eye played:

'Four Letter Word'
'Beatles And Stones'
'Millionaire'
'Two Of A Kind'
'For Anyone'
'The Roller'
'Wind Up Dream'
'Bring The Light'
'Standing On The Edge Of The Noise'
'Kill For A Dream'
'Three Ring Circus'
'The Beat Goes On'
'Man Of Misery'
'The Morning Sun'
'Wigwam'
'Sons Of The Stage'

The gig was part of the week-long Teenage Cancer Trust gig run. Biffy Clyro play earlier in the week and curator Roger Daltrey performed 'Tommy' in full.

Noel Gallagher 'Banging Out Tunes' In LA Studio











You Me At Six singer says his band are working in same studio as Gallagher.

Noel Gallagher is working on new material in Los Angeles, according to You Me At Six singer Josh Franceschi.

Last night (March 23) Franceschi wrote on Twitter.com/joshmeatsix that the ex-Oasis man was working in the same studio as his band.

"Can hear Noel from Oasis blasting his new tunes from the studio next door," he wrote. "Absolutely mental."

The Surrey quintet are currently recording their third album in the US city.

Last month Gallagher claimed that he hadn't started work on his solo album yet. His brother Liam, now fronting Beady Eye, said he reckoned that he had, though.

Also last November Miles Kane said he'd been working with Noel on his first post-Oasis solo album.

Liam Gallagher Is Teacup-Total
















Liam Gallagher's rider requests have changed over the years.

It used to be Red Stripe and decent crisps. On the current Beady Eye tour frontman Liam is firmly on the wagon - so it's honey, a few lemons and some fine china all the way.

He takes his teacup to the Reading and Leeds festivals this summer. But he said: "At the moment we're all bang into the little gigs."

Of the bigger shows, he added: "When the time comes, I'll fit back into that dress."

Gerard Way Really Wants To See Beady Eye Live



My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way was devastated when he found out the schedule for the Reading and Leeds festival - because his band's headline slot means he will miss out on watching Beady Eye's highly-anticipated performance.

The Welcome to the Black Parade hitmakers are one of the bands topping the bill at the double-venue event this summer (Aug11), and they will play in the main arena while Liam Gallagher's new band will perform at the same time on a separate stage.

Way admits he's overjoyed to be headlining the festival, but regrets he won't be able to see the former Oasis rocker play.

He tells NME magazine, "I really wanna see (Beady Eye play). That's quite a bummer. But that happens a lot... I would definitely love to have gotten to see Beady Eye... I'm a huge fan of (Liam), a fan of his brother and of Oasis, so I think it'll be fine. I think it'll be good."

Speaking about how he thought he'd adapt to playing one of Beady Eye's first festival shows, he added: "I'll comfortably fucking fit back into that dress."

On This Day In Oasis History...





On the 22nd March 1996, Noel Gallagher made an appearance on the Late Late Show in Dublin, Ireland.

I'm unable to find Wonderwall, that was performed before the interview.

Visit my newly launched Beady Eye fan site www.standingontheedgeofthenoise.com by clicking here.

Beady Eye Are Not Oasis, So Stop Asking















If you were alive during the late ’90s and anywhere near a radio, you’re probably familiar with Oasis. Songs like “Wonderwall” and “Champagne Supernova” were part of the cultural soundtrack, and beaten into our collective memories like commercial jingles. But just as ubiquitous as the music were the bickering siblings who created it. Liam and Noel Gallagher – the singer and lead guitarist, respectively — attacked each other in a seemingly never-ending public feud. For almost a decade, they were the Lockhorns of Britpop. Sometimes it was just a war of words, and sometimes it escalated into actual violence involving cricket bats. It got especially ugly in August of 2009 when, prior to a performance at Paris’ Rock en Seine festival, the brothers got into a backstage brawl that purportedly involved punches and broken guitars. Not long after, Noel announced on the band’s website that he was quitting, claiming that “the level of verbal and violent intimidation towards me … has become intolerable.” It seemed like the end, unless you knew anything at all about the history of Oasis, and then it just seemed like a temporary hiatus – a rock ‘n’ roll “time out,” if you will – until the brothers had a few pints and settled their differences long enough to make another album.

Shockingly, the truce never happened. Instead, Liam teamed up with his former Oasis mates – guitarist Gem Archer, bassist Andy Bell and touring drummer Chris Sharrock – and started a new group called Beady Eye. Their debut album, Different Gear, Still Speeding (out earlier this month) may not be the next (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? But it certainly won’t have Oasis fans screaming, “What the hell is this shit?” The album more or less follows the creative aesthetic of “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Time will tell if Beady Eye is the real deal or just a rebound band until Noel and Liam bury the hatchet. Personally, I wouldn’t complain if, at some point during the upcoming Beady Eye tour, Noel walked out on stage mid-set and joined the band for “Acquiesce”, the brothers harmonizing on “We need each other/We believe in one another” before collapsing into each other’s arms for some serious bro hugging. Not likely, sure. But stranger things have happened.

I spoke with Liam Gallagher and Gem Archer about the new band and old grudges. There’s a song on Different Gear, Still Speeding called “Four Letter Word,” in which Liam sings “I don’t know what it is I’m feeling/ A four letter word really gets my meaning.” That pretty much sums up how our conversation went.

What exactly does Beady Eye mean? It doesn’t sound like the most flattering description. Is it like a lazy eye?

Liam Gallagher: Dunno. It’s a phrase or something.

Gem Archer: Yeah, it’s an English phrase. And it can be unflattering. It can be negative or positive. “I’ve got my beady eye on you!”

So it’s a threat?

GA: It can be. It’s what a teacher might say to the funky kid at the back of the class. “I’ve got my beady eye on you!” Nobody’s getting the wool pulled over their eyes.

Why didn’t you guys just continue on as Oasis? You lost one member, but it’s still got a majority of the original band. Pink Floyd went on without Roger Waters. The Who were just Daltrey and Townshend for awhile. I don’t think Lynyrd Skynyrd has anybody from the original lineup anymore. Why can’t you do the same thing?

LG: We could’ve if we wanted, but we’ve got a lot more fucking self-respect. It’s why we don’t fucking play somebody else’s fucking songs when we can make our own.

Will you be playing any Oasis songs on the Beady Eye tour?

LG and GA: [simultaneously] Nope.

You won’t even slip an old favorite into the setlist?

LG: I think it’d be schizophrenic, man. You know what I mean? Jumping from one to the other is fucking weird. It’s just fucking mental. Get over it. Oasis is yesterday. It’s fucking done.

If Oasis was the Beatles, as it’s sometimes been claimed, then what does that make Beady Eye? Is it Wings or the Plastic Ono Band?

GA: Well, that’s for people who compare Oasis with the Beatles to answer.

But Liam, didn’t you once say that Oasis would be as big as the Beatles, if not bigger?

LG: Not me, mate. I think you’ll find it was the little fellow who said that. But I got blamed for it.

You’ve at least admitted a fondness for John Lennon. And there’s a song on the new album, “Roller”, that sounds vaguely like “Instant Karma.” Is that subconscious, or is it an intentional homage?

LG: It’s not intentional at all. We leave that kind of shit up to Lenny Kravitz and people like that.
GA: I get the comparison. It’s a descending line played on a piano with a double-track vocal. But those are just elements. The other element is, Lennon is as much a part of my DNA as I’m sure Guinness is.

Guinness as in the beer?

GA: Yeah, mate. It’s all in there. All of our influences are in there. I’ve been into Lennon since I was eight years old. So that’s just how it comes out. We don’t hide it. [Laughs] Well, sometimes we do.

Liam, last summer you said that Beady Eye’s debut would be “the best record you’ll hear for the next 50 years.” Do you stand by that prediction?

LG: Yep.

So you’re saying that every album made in the next 50 years, including any subsequent albums by you or Beady Eye, will be crap by comparison? Are you preemptively announcing your retirement?

LG: No, no, no. I probably just got excited about what we were doing. You know what I’m like. It’s just my way of saying, “It’s a great fucking album, and it’s got some amazing fucking songs.” I hope the next one we do is even better than this one. And I hope it inspires other people to make great records.

Do you want to go ahead and predict a few Grammy nominations for Different Gear, Still Speeding?

LG: If it happens, it happens, but I’m not going to go begging for it. You know who wins fucking Grammys? Fucking U2 and Coldplay.

GA: Awards never really cross our minds.

LG: Clutter. You know what it is? It’s just clutter!

Is that why last year when you got a BRIT Award, you threw it into the crowd?

LG: I didn’t throw it at anybody. I underarmed it and passed it to them. It’s more the fan’s award than mine anyway. If I fucking threw something at somebody, you’d fucking know about it. I gently threw it towards them and said, “You have it. It’s your fucking award.”

Liam, you’ve said in the past that you don’t know what your songs are about. Does that include Beady Eye songs?

LG: It does. That’s entirely accurate. I don’t know what they’re about.

What about “Beatles and Stones”? “I’m gonna stand the test of time, like the Beatles and Stones.” That seems pretty self-explanatory.

LG: That one, sure. But in general, I don’t want to know what they’re about. I’d rather other people tell me what they’re about.

How do you come up with lyrics? Is it free association? Do you just sing the first thing that pops into your head, or do you sit down with a pad of paper and think it through?

LG: If I decided to sit down and write a song, I’d fucking still be there right now, working on the first line. I don’t do it that way.

Does the band write collectively, when you’re all in the same room?

GA: We all write individually and bring in our ideas. In general, Liam will play us something on his laptop or whatever, and we’ll sit around with our guitars and decide how to dress it up. What kind of drumbeat will it be? Does it need a guitar solo? So yeah, it’s very collective.

A lot of the excitement and creative energy in Oasis was the tension between Liam and Noel. Where’s the tension in this band?

GA: We don’t have any of that tension anymore. It’s useless. It’s just fucking rubbish.

LG: I don’t think tension makes for great records. That’s a load of bollocks.

What about the Rolling Stones? Keith Richards and Mick Jagger weren’t exactly giving each other back rubs. Keith said some pretty nasty things about Mick in his memoir.

LG: Yeah, and what have they fucking done for the last twenty-five fucking years?

GA: I get the thing about creative tension. And I understand it. But I’ve worked with Jimmy Miller (who produced classic Stones albums like Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main St.) and he says they were ready to clean up their act when they started working on those albums. They put the fucking petty shit aside and focused on the music. They didn’t bring it into the studio or on the stage.

How about other bands? Oasis had a long-standing rivalry with Blur. Do you have a musical arch-nemesis for 2011?

LG: Naw, man. That shit is just a wind-up, isn’t it? Just to see what they’re fucking made of. And they were made of fuck all. [At this point, Liam launched into a tirade that was likely hilarious and poignant, but was spoken in a dialectic I can only describe as a “Manchester Grumble.” I listened to the tape repeatedly, using the most advanced technology, and I still have no clue what he was saying. The only words I was able to identify were variations on “fuck,” used in at least a dozen instances. And at one point, I’m almost positive he said, “It makes me want to fucking throw up!” But I can’t be sure. Journalistic integrity forbids me from making educated guesses. So use your imagination, and be sure to include plenty of expletives.] You know what I mean?

[Long, awkward pause] I … think so.

LG: I was just like, “Fuck off!” Makes me want to laugh.

Let’s talk about Noel. You’ve said repeatedly that Oasis is finished. But is there any chance for a reconciliation?

LG: No. It’s done, mate. It’s over.

There’s no circumstance in which you’d reconsider?

LG: I’m not money driven, and I wouldn’t cheat myself or anybody else out of being the real deal. We’re not going back, we’re going forward.

Well sure, but in the Beady Eye song “Kill For A Dream,” you say “Life’s too short not to forgive/You can carry regrets but they won’t let you live/I’m here if you wanna call.” Does that not apply to Noel?

LG: I’m not getting Oasis back together! We did everything we were supposed to do. That’s the legacy, and we have the fucking balls enough to leave it alone.

Even if he calls and says, “I fucked up, Liam, I’m sorry?”

LG: Even if he brought me fucking cheesecake.

As a fan, it’s hard not to be nostalgic for the old songs. You call yourselves Beady Eyes, but you look almost exactly like Oasis. All we want is a little “Champagne Supernova.” You can’t help us out?

LG: No.

Even a few chords, just for old time’s sake?

LG: No.

Pretty please with sugar on top?

LG: No! I wouldn’t insult the fans or ourselves by doing that. That shit is over. We moved on. You want to hear the old stuff, I’m sure our kid (Liam’s nickname for Noel) will be playing somewhere.

What about artists who cover Oasis songs? Do you care for any of it? What did you think about Ryan Adams’ version of “Wonderwall”?

LG: It’s shit to me, man. I like Ryan Adams and I like some of his songs. But I hated what he did with “Wonderwall.”

GA: He’s done a lot of really great tunes. He’s the real deal. But I agree with what Liam said, it didn’t ring true at all.

LG: It’s not his fault. To be quite honest, I’ve never really cared for the original either.

[Liam and Gem burst into laughter.]
