Liam says new band will be bigger than Oasis

By | Published on Monday 19 July 2010

Liam Gallagher reckons his new band, the terribly named Beady Eye, will be bigger than Oasis. But then he would, wouldn’t he?

As previously reported, Beady Eye is basically Oasis minus Noel Gallagher who, of course, quit the band last summer. Liam G told the Sunday Times this week that the new band’s debut album was 75% done and that his music had “never sounded better”. He hopes to have a single out this year and an album in 2011.

On that album, Gallagher said: “It’ll be bigger [than Oasis]. I’ve got no doubt about the music, no doubt about me. It’s proper rock n roll. Oasis was a pop band compared to what we’re doing”.

Asked about his brother, Liam predicted that Noel would “come crawling back very fucking soon” once he heard his new band’s music. I wouldn’t be holding my breath for that.
