Former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher names new band
Tuesday 25 May 2010
Liam Gallagher's new post-Oasis band have been named Beady Eye, it was announced today.
The singer has teamed up with former band mates Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock to record new material.
The quartet are now in the studio with producer Steve Lillywhite, famed for his work with U2.
Guitarist Noel Gallagher walked out on Oasis last summer before a gig in Paris after being worn down by his difficult relationship with brother Liam.
The new band posted a photo of them in the studio on the Oasis website today.
Liam had previously said he would carry on with the old band name if he was unable to think of anything better.
"If we don't come up with something else by the time we're ready to release the album it'll be Oasis," he said last year. "I'm not going to call myself something ridiculous just for the sake of it."
