Beady Eye

In case anyone hasn’t heard it on the grapevine already, here’s the weekend’s breaking Beady Eyes news: Liam Gallagher has said via Twitter that his post-Oasis band is “no longer” and… well, that’s that, really. Ta-dah.

“Thanks for all the support”, adds LG, with his one-time Beady band peer Andy Bell reiterating the split, and wishing the world “big love” in its wake.

So, RIP Beady E, we barely liked nor disliked ye especially. The band’s closedown comes only four years and two LPs (in 2011’s ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’ and 2013’s ‘BE’) into its lifespan. Oh, and coincidentally, it’s happened a week or so ‘hence’ from Liam’s distant acquaintance and brother Noel confirming his own post-Oasis band the High Flying Birds’ latest LP, ‘Chasing Yesterday’. Perhaps Liam’s had an early listen to that, and it’s so magnificent that he was all like “nah man, fuck this, can’t top that”, and has just… given up.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Anyway to play this story out, and because I can’t think of any Beady Eye songs, this Noel Gallagher & The High Flying Birds’ latest single ‘In The Heat Of The Moment’:
