Beady Eye is the new Oasis

From the train wreck of a band break up that was the split of Oasis comes a new band fronted by Liam Gallagher and backed by his former comrades:

Beady Eye.

What the fuck kind of name is that? Well, as long as the music is good, who cared, know what I mean gov?

Beady Eye’s roster line-up is basically the final line-up of Oasis, but obviously without guitarist and songwriter Noel Gallagher because he finally threw his toys after Liam threw his toys one time too many.

Andy Bell shifts to guitar in the new band having previously been on bass duties. Bass duties will be undertaken in live performances by Jeff Wootton. Presumably this means Andy will do bass in studio recordings. Gem Archer will do lead guitar duties and Chris Sharrock will hit the skins. Oasis's longtime live keyboard player Jay Darlington has been retained and will also play live with Beady Eye.

Apparently Beady Eye have been in the studio with one of U2's producers, Steve Lillywhite and are aiming for an October release date for their first single. You can follow Beady Eye on Twitter!

Liam has said he is now relishing his post-Oasis career after initally being "gutted"about the break-up. "In hindsight it was the best thing that’s ever happened, because we're free to do whatever we want,"
Liam also apparently confirmed that he has not spoken to his brother and former bandmate Noel Oasis split.

We understand the band is quite interested in Star Wars trivia.

Beady Eye's first single is Bring the Light. It's b-side will be Sons of the Stage.
For those lamenting the break up of Oasis, cheer yourself up with a copy of the new best of album,
