Beady Eye Is Really Just Oasis Without Noel?
Bassist Andy Bell recalled the aftershocks of the breakup to the Toronto Sun, "Obviously, we were all gutted and a bit shocked. But as time went on, we decided it would be a shame to just leave it and not play together. We thought, 'We are potentially a great band. Let's make a new band.'"
And they did, beginning the songwriting process almost the instant Oasis came off the road. "We just started demoing these songs," said Gallagher, "and they sounded good the minute we plugged in. We thought, 'This is it, man.' Even if we wanted to have a year off, we felt like there was a higher force saying, 'Get out there and get on with it. There's work to be done.' We knew instantly, man: 'We've got it.'" more on this story
