Liam Gallagher

Beady Eye

Beady Eye is Oasis without Noel Gallagher. After years of sibling battles, Noel, the main songwriter and talent of Oasis, finally left the band. Rock stars these boys are, with every brotherly conflict thoroughly reported and devoured by the English press, but Liam’s curmudgeonly behavior and boorish attitude had grown so stale over the years that even his brother couldn’t stomach him.

Discussed here in an earlier post, in the mid-90’s my radio station hosted a live broadcast of Oasis from the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Boston. Liam, true-to-form, was not only uncooperative and arrogant but also glaringly ignorant of what the broadcast entailed. Noel, ever the professional, even had to cover for his brother when Liam walked off the stage in some conjured snit fit during the encore.

That being said, Beady Eye does offer a fine straight-up rave-up rocker as their debut song. Wonderfully produced by Steve Lillywhite, “Bring the Light” is a free download and is the Song of the Day.

“Bring the Light” by Beady Eye


Oasis is releasing a greatest hits album, Time Flies 1994-2009, which features 27 UK singles. Included on the record is the one-off single “Whatever” that has never been on an album. It came out between their debut Definitely Maybe and (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?. To some it is an Oasis classic.
We once did a live broadcast with Oasis form the Orpheum Theatre in Boston in 1995. Even then Liam Gallagher was an incorrigible prick: stupidly belligerent, boorishly uncooperative and unknowingly but blatantly displaying flashes of true ignorance. It was immediately apparent that Noel Gallagher was the true talent in the band. Besides being the leader and main songwriter, Noel was even forced to sing the remaining few songs of the set when his brother had a snit fit over something never explained and walked off the stage. The listening audience never knew the difference. Noel has since left the band and it’s amazing the band lasted as long as it did.
“Whatever” is the Song of the Day.
