Here’s a video preview of the iTunes LP for Beady Eye’s Different Gear, Still Speeding. It looks like “Man of Misery,” an unreleased Oasis track, will be available as a bonus track. I’m excited to hear a proper version of this song, but still find it funny no one has called Liam on this after he bagged on Noel for intending to use left over Oasis songs for his upcoming solo album. Let us not forget, “The Roller” is an Oasis track from Heathen Chemistry written by Gem.Read More
And a whacked out album cover. Not what I expected at all.
And here’s the tracklist:
Four Letter Word
Beatles And Stones
Wind Up Dream
Bring The Light
Kill For A Dream
Standing On The Edge Of The Noise
Three Ring Circus
The Beat Goes On
The Morning Son
Of course there is a song named “Beatles and Stones.” That should have been the album title, obvs. Different Gear, Still Speeding will be released in February 2011.Read More
Try as I might I simply cannot get into the new Beady Eye song. The tempo is all wrong, the piano is too loud, the back-up singers are hokey and I cringe every time Liam says “ecstasy.” Overall, just a very poor effort. Liam has written quite a few good Oasis songs so I expected better, especially with Steve Lillywhite at the helm.
That said, Lillywhite said on his East Village Radio show this week that this song is not indicative of the album at all so hopefully that bodes well for the rest of the album.Read More

Fuckin’ In The Bushes

The Meaning Of Soul
To Be Where There’s Life
Waiting For The Rapture
Ain’t Got Nothin’
The Importance Of Being Idle
I’m Outta Time
Don’t Look Back In Anger
I Am The Walrus
First time they’ve played that song live in 12 years! Liveforever.us has the details.
When it’s all said and done, I think this is my favorite Oasis tune. Total fucking classic.
We’ve been rehearsing: ‘My Big Mouth’, ‘Half The World Away’, ‘Bag It Up’, and the alternative version of ‘The Turning’ (the one on the bonus CD from that box-set thing). Unfortunately, as Romeo doesn’t do sound-checks, it’s almost impossible to change anything. I’m guessing it’ll probably fall to me to try some acoustic numbers. We’ll have to wait and see.
Noel is one smooth so-and-so. Blame it all on Liam. No one will ever ask him.
