Beady Eye is the new group from Oasis members Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer and Andy Bell, plus newcomer Chris Sharrock. They’re a blistering mix of classic rock, pop, and glam that proves that while Oasis may be long gone, their spirit certainly endures. The debut album Different Gear, Still Speeding, is chock full of all Oasis’ trademark Britpop attributes: snarky vocals, hooky guitars, and simple but addictive chord progression.
Although fans will have to wait one week to pick up the album, you can listen to an live preview, recorded exclusively for KEXP, right now! KEXP’s own Cheryl Waters had the fortune to talk with Liam Gallagher and Andy Bell about Beady Eye before the session. You can listen to both the interview and the live performance here:
