New band member Jay Mehler was also in attendance
Liam Gallagher aired a brand new Beady Eye track from the band’s forthcoming album at London club night This Feeling, which takes place at the Queen Of Hoxton pub.
Gallagher went to the club to see his Beady Eye bandmate, guitarist Andy Bell, DJing, and gave Bell the green light to play an unnamed track thought to be the band’s next single.
“Liam made everyone’s night by shaking every hand in the venue and was on blistering form,” said This Feeling organiser Mikey Jonns. “When he gave Andy and [Bell’s DJ partner] Arveene the nod to play the new tune the place erupted!”
Tom Rowlett of the band Dexters, pictured above right with Gallagher, heard the track. He said, “I was pretty fucked so memory a bit hazy, but it had a big brass section and Liam’s vocals sounded massive, proper in-your-face psychedelic rock’n’roll. Sounding fuckin’ massive, man, the whole place went off when it came on! Liam was amazing. They always say don’t meet your heroes but he was brilliant – he pulled us into his VIP area, we had a few beers with him, he was buzzing off the new LP and so are we now!”
Former Kasabian guitarist Jay Mehler (pictured below), who has recently taken over as Beady Eye’s bassist, was also in attendance. Mehler was drafted in following the departure of Jeff Wootton, who has left to go solo.
Bell and Arveene will be DJing at This Feeling Manchester at FAC251 on March 23, with The Sundowners playing live.
