Beady Eye are to start playing Oasis songs.
The ‘Bring the Light’ hitmakers – Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock – believe the ”time is right” to revisit the tracks of their former band now fans are familiar with their own music.
Liam’s brother Noel – who wrote many Oasis songs when he was the group’s guitarist – has played several of the band’s tracks at his solo shows, so the rocker doesn’t see why he shouldn’t either.
Frontman Liam said: ”We’re doing Fuji Festival in Japan, which is in July. And we will be dropping Oasis songs for anyone who’s bothered.
”The time is right now, without a doubt. We were always going to do it, but we thought the Beady Eye album needed to stand on its own. We’ve done some good gigs, we’ve done some s**t gigs. And it’s time to drop them in now. Everyone else is. I feel they’re just as much my songs as they are Noel’s.
”And if people don’t like it, go to the bar or f**k off. If they do like it, jump up and down, let’s have a good time.”
Liam also revealed Beady Eye have started work on their second album, but don’t plan to rush to release the record.
He added in an interview with Xfm: ”We’re just demoing some songs, no rush, we’re going to make it right, maybe put it out next year. It’s sounding very uplifting and very rock and roll, but then I would say that.”
