Liam Gallagher's post-Oasis group Beady Eye have brought the ''spirit'' of his old band with them
Beady Eye have brought the "spirit" of Oasis to their new band.
Frontman Liam Gallagher says he was driven to form his new group - featuring ex-Oasis members Andy Bell, Gem Archer and Chris Sharrock - by a higher power which didn't want him to rest after the breakup of his last band - caused by a fall out with his brother, Noel, the group's songwriter and guitarist.
He explained: "Look, there's a big f***ing spirit up there. It was in Oasis and now it's in Beady Eye. And it said, 'If you think you're having a year off, you little f***ing p***k, you're tripping. Get out there!'
"And thank f**k for it. We used to speak about Oasis wanting to be the best band in the world. Well, that's how we feel in this. We wanna go round the world. We wanna inspire kids. We wanna play some great f***ing gigs."
Liam also insists fans of his old band will be impressed with Beady Eye's live shows, even though they will not play any material from his former career, and that they are rehearsing hard for their short European tour in March.
He added: "They're gonna f***ing love it, mate. I know what the fans like. We've got the same DNA. They're gonna dig it, cos we're gonna be on form, man. That's why we're rehearsing like f**k."
The outspoken singer added he's not worried by fans shouting for Oasis songs at the shows, adding: "I've got a microphone, we've got guitars, we'll drown them out. They can shout what they f***ing want."
Beady Eye's debut album 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' is released on February 28.
