He also reckons the band have 'booted the door off the hinges' for album number two
Speaking in this week’s issue, the frontman also declared that Beady Eye have shown no fear on album number two and admitted that his former group would never have been brave enough to make this record. He said:
This is the record Oasis should have made after ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’.
He added: “I’m not saying it’s better than ‘Be Here Now’ or it’s going to be this or that – I love ‘Be Here Now’, I won’t have a bad word said about it but when you’re selling 20 million records, you’ve got people there going, ‘Oh let’s just chuck out that formula again’. So I’m a bit disappointed we didn’t ever do it. But this fucking record: we’ve booted the door off the hinges and steamed right in there, into this other world.”
The ex-Oasis frontman also admitted that he was disappointed by the reaction to Beady Eye’s 2011 debut album ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’.
He said: “Maybe it was too quick after Oasis. But you can blame it on this, you can blame it on that… at the end of the day people just didn’t fucking buy it, they didn’t get it, it didn’t connect, so back to the drawing board.”
