Beady Eye Is Really Just Oasis Without Noel?

(Gibson) With Beady Eye doing the rounds in anticipation of the February 28 release date of their first album, Different Gear, Still Speeding, Liam Gallagher and company have been fielding questions left and right about his falling out with brother Noel and the subsequent breakup of Britpop mega-band Oasis. But beyond the tales of Parisian hotel blowups is the equally captivating story of his new band, which is really just his old band minus Big Brother.

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
