Beady Eye Band

Oasis Split

After English band Oasis split in August 2009, the bickering brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher went their separate ways. Later in 2009 shortly after the split, Liam set up his new band and "Beady Eye" were born.

Beady Eye

There are four band members who are originally from Oasis:

Liam Gallagher - vocals, Andy Bell - guitar & backing vocals, Gem Archer - guitar & backing vocals, and Chris Sharrock on drums. Accompanying the band on live tours are Matt Jones on keyboard and Jeff Wooton on bass guitar. The group decided to set up their own record label, and called it Beady Eye Records Ltd.

Wolverhampton - 24th April 2011

I was lucky enough to get a ticket for the Wolverhampton concert at the Civic Hall on Easter Sunday. The band were incredible live, the atmosphere was electric and the fans were all loving it. Some of the Beady Eye songs are a bit like the Beatles music. It was the most enjoyable and certainly was the best live performance I have heard in a long time. At the end of the gig, Liam  jumped into the crowd which thrilled many of the fans fortunate enough to be at the front.

Pretty Green

In between writing, live performances and working on Beady Eye's second album, Liam Gallagher has even found the time to design and set up a menswear clothing collection called "Pretty Green." You can check out the selection of clothes ranging from t-shirts, boots, jackets, parkkas and shirts on the website: www.prettygreen.com

What a busy boy he is!
