The Chief’s solo campaign began in the exact opposite way to Beady Eye’s: a year of radio silence rather than a 12-month brag about “classics”, and then some beautifully melodic and unashamedly ‘mature’ songs like these. With its disco beat and rave piano motif, ‘AKA… What A Life!’ was, by his standards, way out there; ‘If I Had A Gun...’ was as archetypal a Noel G song as you could ever imagine.
