Beady Eye – I Bring The Light

In case you guys missed it. Oasis is back…kind of. Several members of Oasis Liam Gallagher, Andy Bell, Gem Archer, and Chris Sharrock – basically everyone but Noel Gallagher – have gotten together to form Beady Eye.

After the whole Oasis/Gallagher brother implosion last year, Liam is back with a band that’s “bigger than Oasis.” According to him, “it's proper rock'n'roll," and that "Oasis was a pop band compared to what we're doing."

In reality, they’re not all that different from Oasis. Although, there are some noticeable differences. The energy is a bit more raw and draws heavily from the swinging psychedelic pop of the 1960’s. They’ve also got some snazzy new haircuts, back up vocals, and a lot of the old angsty shit-head edge back in Liam’s voice.

Within days of announcing their first European tour, tickets have sold out. With this much attention, it might even catch the eye of Noel, who is apparently taking a break from music and "doing nappies and all that malarkey.” But Liam is confident that Noel will return, perhaps to Beady Eye or Oasis. In an earlier interview, Liam simply stated "Noel will come crawling back very fucking soon."

In the meantime, check out their first single “I Bring the Light Below.”
