Should Beady Eye Play Oasis Songs?
Is it wise to leave Oasis behind?
Perhaps the biggest mistake Liam Gallagher has made with Beady Eye – a band containing four-fifths of Oasis's final lineup – is to refuse to play any Oasis songs live. Not only have Beady Eye's live shows consequently lacked the fist-punching highs of his former band's sets, but too distinct a line was drawn between the two acts, leaving Liam struggling to bring Oasis's fan base along with him. Not so Noel Gallagher. On Sunday night, Liam's elder brother performed several Oasis songs at the first live outing of his High Flying Birds solo project, in Dublin. As fan-filmed videos at youtube.com/beadyeysis prove, even played acoustically and sung by the wrong Gallagher, Supersonic and Wonderwall can prompt mass, beery singalongs. So, too, do the best of Noel's new songs – particularly the barrelling AKA… What a Life. Not surprising, then, that Noel has just announced a date at London's 20,000-capacity O2 Arena, while Beady Eye have yet to sell out November's 5,000-capacity Brixton Academy show.
