Liam: Doing an Oasis Record was "Lots of Hair Pulling , Loads of Broken Nails"
Liam Gallagher says recording Beady Eye's debut album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' was ''without a doubt'' more enjoyable than any of the records he made with Oasis.
Liam Gallagher says recording 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' was "without a doubt" more enjoyable than any of the albums he made with Oasis.
The Beady Eye frontman - who formed the band from the remaining members of Oasis when his brother Noel quit in August 2009 - explained the group "banged it out" in just seven weeks, and created an album that makes him want to "smash things".
Asked whether making the record was more enjoyable than those he made during his time with Oasis, Liam said: "Yeah, without a doubt. We just banged it out in six or seven weeks. I mean, I'm not a muso, but I think it's got an attitude and a certain kind of flair to it.
"Always going through with a fine tooth just gets boring and up your own arse. We're not writing a f***ing symphony, we're not writing an opera, it's just rock 'n' roll music. And if it makes you want to smash things or jump up and f***ing go mental, then it's a hit with me."
Liam explained if Oasis were still making a record they would "still be doing it now", and the writing and recording process is much more democratic in Beady Eye.
He added in an interview with The Boston Globe newspaper: "If we were doing an Oasis record, we'd still be doing it now. It'd be two years later. There'd be lots of hair pulling, loads of broken nails.
"It was a band thing. No one was in charge. The way I see it, it's like we all got a go at taking the car around the block for a spin - you know what I mean?"
