Liam Gallagher prepared for 'party political broadcast'
Liam Gallagher is prepared for his brother Noel's "party political broadcast" today (06.07.11).
The Beady Eye frontman couldn't resist taking a swipe at his former Oasis bandmate - who has called a press conference this morning, where he is expected to announce the details of his debut solo album - as his band performed at the iTunes Festival in London last night (05.07.11).
As Beady Eye prepared to launch into their track 'Bring The Light', Liam told the crowd: "Are you ready for the party political broadcast tomorrow? Are you? Well we like rock 'n' roll."
Beady Eye features four of the five members of Oasis when they disbanded in 2009, with Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock joining Liam.
The band refuse to play any Oasis songs live and Liam has claimed his split with Noel - which caused the breakup of Oasis - is final and he doesn't feel the guitarist will be as successful without him.
He said: "The people that go, 'Oh, Beady Eye is not Oasis,' well, I'll tell you what - you wait until you hear Noel's music because that ain't gonna be Oasis either. It might remind you of it but there'll be something missing. And what'll be missing is f**king me."
"I had a great time singing Oasis songs, without a doubt. But I think Oasis is beatable, man. With Oasis we did experiment but Noel was holding back the reins a bit."
At their iTunes show, Beady Eye played tracks from their debut album 'Differnt Gear, Still Speeding', including 'Millionaire' and 'Wigwam', ending their set with their cover version of Word of Twist's 'Sons of the Stage'.
The iTunes Festival 2011 runs throughout July at London's Roundhouse venue, showcasing acts including Friendly Fires, Adele and Arctic Monkeys. Tickets are free and distributed via the iTunes Festival website.Posted on 6 Jul 2011 09:45 to category : Band / Celebrity News
