Noisey followed Liam Gallagher and Beady Eye around for a few months leading up to the release of their new album, BE. They talked with the band about the writing and recording process, and about how the band found itself coming into its own.
Liam Gallagher is doing his best to step out on his own, rather than just be known as the "other Gallagher brother." Showing no shortage of confidence (and absolutely no sense of humility, as he is known for), Gallagher is trying to make his own impression on the world. They all feel that Beady Eye is more of a collaborative effort than Oasis was, with Gallagher claiming "I don't want to be in a band with someone who's in control all the time. I'd rather go and work at fucking McDonald's."
The new album finds the band exploring a more rock sound, seeking to differentiate themselves from the Britpop scene that they people could associate them with.
For a fun game, trying counting the number of sentences that Liam says that have no profanity in them. The number will not be a high one.
You can get BE from Beady Eye's official website.
