KEXP Exclusive: Live Session & Interview with Beady Eye... listen now!

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:

    Finally a band with a new sound that rocks. I am going to have to check out Oasis a bit more. All I have ever heard was Wonderwall and Some Might Say.

    @David

    You definitely owe it to yourself to check out more Oasis. They didn’t have the staying power in the US that they did in the rest of the world, and the only thing most Americans know them for are maybe a few tracks from WTSMG. Shame, really. You haven’t completely lived until you’ve sang Rock and Roll Star at the top of your lungs with 70,000 other fans at a proper Oasis gig.

    That said, the Beady Eye tracks are sounding pretty good. I don’t hear as many hooks right away, but sometimes some songs are just growers.

    Great interview, too. Liam really was pretty decent, and for once he actually enunciated—as least as best as he can? I could understand him, at least. I hope when—(if?)—Noel gets his solo career off and rocking KEXP will give him the same treatment.

    Stay madferit!
