Liam Gallagher has said he feels no pressure to distance himself from Oasis, as he makes his career with new band Beady Eye.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, the frontman said he is very proud of his former band's achievements and won't shy away from talking about it. He said: "I'll always be Oasis, it's in my veins. I'm never going to get away from it and I don't want to get away but I'm not doing it any more. I've no reason to escape from it because I'm very proud of it."

Gallagher also added he believed his brother Noel liked Beady Eye album as the guitarist is "a music lover."

Asked if he believed Noel had heard 'Different Gear, Still Speeding', he said: "I'm sure he's had a listen. I don't think he's got Beady Eye on his iPod and he probably doesn't listen to it daily, but he's a music lover and 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' is a top-notch album."

Gallagher also said he would definitely be listening to his brother's solo effort. Asked if he would listen to Noel's album, he replied by saying: "Definitely. I want to see if it's as good as the ones I sang on."
