“Look Dad, No Tunes”
So one half of the “Brothers mono- brow” finally emerges from the car crash that was the acrimonious Oasis split with some exciting, ground breaking new material. Or not.
Liam Gallagher‘s new band Beady-Eye finds him still relentlessly mining the 60’s for musical inspiration but this time around he appears to have thankfully forsaken blatant Beatles plagiarism. Instead the mumbling, mono-browed Mancunian monkey-boy seems to favour an insipid, overproduced hotchpotch that sounds about as threatening and rock n’roll as “Michael Buble Sings The Rolling Stones .”
Hmm maybe it’s not that bad**, but then again it’s not really earth shatteringly great either. One for a ‘Dad dance’ at a family wedding me thinks.
“Bring The Light” By Beady-Eye.
Should you feel the need, you can download it from the bands website here
Update**, What was I thinking ! Repeated listens have forced me to revise the statement “It’s not that bad.” Actually it is that bad,it’s very, very, very bad, it’s lumpen sausage fingered pub rock- it’s ‘super-chronic.’
