Former Oasis man played a surprise set in Charlestown, Co Mayo on Sunday (July 26)
Liam Gallagher performed an unknown song during an impromptu set last Sunday (July 26) at a pub in Charlestown, Co Mayo, on the west coast of Ireland.
The former Oasis frontman surprised punters at JJ Finan’s pub on Sunday afternoon by joining local musicians in the bar where he played a few songs on his guitar. Footage of the gig has subsequently emerged online.
Gallagher performed what appeared to be a new song, which included the lyrics “Yes I know, I’ve been wrong/ Didn’t do what I was told/ Yes I know I’ve been wrong/ Didn’t do what I was told/ I ain’t looking for no 9-5/ Sick of wasting all my precious time/ Cos it’s alright /Cos it’s alright now”.
The song – which can be watched below – also appears to include a reference to brother Noel Gallagher’s latest solo album, ‘Chasing Yesterday’, with the lyric, “When I wake up and I hear you say/ There’s no love worth chasing yesterday”.

Reports earlier this year had suggested that Liam is working on his debut solo album, but these were subsequently dismissed by a spokesperson for the singer.
Gallagher is believed to be holidaying in Charlestown with his son Lennon, brother Paul and other family members. The singer is no stranger to the town with his mother Peggy hailing from the locality. The Gallaghers also have a host of relations in the area.
Earlier this month (July), Noel Gallagher also spoke of his love for Co Mayo.
Appearing on BBC’s Desert Island Discs presenter Kirsty Young asked him, “you said that your happiest childhood memories were the six weeks that you spent every year in County Mayo in Charlestown.”
Gallagher replied, “Yes. It’s as rural as you can imagine, for one time it didn’t even have electricity and we loved it. Some uncle would always drive us there from Manchester in a car. He would drive from Manchester to Holyhead and this is true, when we got to the ferry, they used to put all the children on the floor and cover us up with a blanket, just so we didn’t have to pay. Our summers seemed endless there, just brilliant.”
