Liam Gallagher has split up his band Beady Eye after 5 years.
Beady Eye was basically Oasis without Noel Gallagher. The band featured ex-Oasis members Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock. Jay Mahler of Kasabian joined the touring line-up of the band in 2013.
Beady Eye formed in 2009 and released two albums ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’ (2011) and BE (2013).
‘Different Gear, Still Standing’ reached no 3 in the UK, no 16 in Australia and no 31 in the USA. ‘BE’ peaked at no 2 in the UK, no 81 in Australia and failed to chart in the USA.
The only chart hit for the band was ‘The Roller’ at no 31 in the UK.
Gallagher made a short statement on Twitter to announce the demise of the band. “Beady Eye are no longer. Thanks for all your support”. LGx
