Liam Gallagher: the World is Crying out for a Great Rock 'n' Roll Band
Liam Gallagher has said that the time is right for his new band Beady Eye, as the world is crying out for a great rock 'n' roll band.
Beady Eye were formed in 2009 from the remnants of Oasis, following the exit of key songwriter Noel Gallagher. Beady Eye retained Oasis members Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer, Andy Bell, and live drummer Chris Sharrock.
Liam told the NME in a recent interview that "The world is crying out for a great rock 'n' roll band. It has been for ages, man. That's why the time is right for Beady Eye. The time is right now. Even in the last ten years there's been nothing, You know what I mean? And it's not just that, there hasn't been one fucking good band. I'm sick of that attitude. There should be loads of fucking good bands out there, looking smart, making great music, fucking doing it. It's not about one band, there should be a load of them, but were are they?"
During the same interview Liam was asked had he heard of up and coming band Brother who say that they are the future of music.
Liam replied "Are you having a laugh, them little wankers? Yeah I have heard of them. What is it they call themselves, 'gritpop'? They're just little fucking posh lads with tattoos with man!"
Band member Andy Bell pointed out to Liam that "There's nothing wrong in being posh." Liam replied "Alright fair point, but there is if you've got fucking tattoos and you're trying to make a bit of a thug out of yourself. Nah, I'm not having them. I'm not having any new bands at the moment, to be fucking honest with you.
Beady Eye announced yesterday that they will be playing 2011's Isle Of Wight Festival, that takes place over the weekend of June 10th-12th 2011.
