Liam Gallagher’s Beady Eye cover Blue Moon to advertise Manchester City FC’s new home kit (Video)

Liam Gallagher’s Beady Eye have filmed a video in which they cover the classic ballad “Blue Moon.” Why? It’s to advertise soccer team Manchester City FC’s new home kit. “Blue Moon” is City fans’ own anthem, often sung at matches.

Liam Gallagher (and brother Noel) are both ardent Manchester City fans; other guitar-playing fans include Johnny Marr and The Cult’s Billy Duffy.

The video shows frontman Liam kissing the badge on the new shirt of his beloved football team, before he and Beady Eye launch into the song. Their version of the track also mixes into their new single “The Beat Goes On,” which will be released on July 18.

“I’ve been a City fan since I was a kid so to be involved with the launch of a new kit is colossal,” Liam said. “Manchester City fans are known for having a lot of style and the new shirt looks mega.

“‘Blue Moon’ is a top tune and has been City’s song for as long as I can remember. It’s been covered by loads of people but the only good one until now was the one Elvis did. I hope the fans buzz of our version and sing it along to the stadium.”

However, Liam is obviously being indulged by his bandmates: he is the only member of Beady Eye who is even from Manchester. Drummer Chris Sharrock, from Liverpool, supports a much smaller team, Tranmere Rovers.


Noel Gallagher Announces New Albums & Reason For Oasis Split

Noel Gallagher has revealed that brother Liam “nearly took his face off” with a guitar on the night he quit the band.

Noel walked out on Oasis in August 2009 after a fierce argument backstage at the Rock En Seine festival in Paris and has now revealed that after a storming row, brother Liam came back into the band’s dressing room and was “wielding a guitar like an axe.”

Speaking earlier today at a press conference, Gallagher said of the incident: “He’d gone into his private dressing room and he’d picked up this guitar. He came back in and he was wielding it about like an axe. He was quite violent. At that point there was no physical violence but there was a lot of World Wrestling Federation stuff. It was an unnecessarily violent act and he nearly took my face off.”

Gallagher also responded to a question about whether he’d left Oasis as he’d achieved everything he wanted by saying: “I hadn’t had enough of Oasis, I’d had enough of Liam.”

The guitarist added that he regretted walking out on the band in the way he did, because he now believed they could have stayed together after a long break.

He added: “We only had two gigs left. I wish we’d done those gigs, gone away, gone on hiatus and done our own thing and maybe it wouldn’t have happened. But then Liam always said he would bring down Armageddon eventually.”

Gallagher also said that relations with his brother were still not good, adding: Liamdoesn’t like me. I don’t get on with him but he doesn’t like me in a very violent way. I did everyone a favour when I left.”

And what of Liam’s response to all this? Well, after last night’s comment from the stage at Camden’s Roundhouse (“Are you ready for the party political broadcast tomorrow? Are you? Well, we like rock ‘n’ roll”) he sent out a one-word tweet this afternoon. It simply reads: ‘SHITBAG’

Noel announced earlier today that he will release two solo albums over the next 12 months. The first, which is titled ‘Noel Gallagher And The High Flying Birds’, is out on October 17.

Musicians appearing on the records include ex-Oasis keyboard player Mike RoweThe Lemon Trees‘ Jeremy Stacey and American percussionist Lenny Castro, best known for playing on records by The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder and Elton John.



Here’s the full tracklisting for …High Flying Birds:

Everybody’s On The Run
Dream On
If I Had A Gun…
The Death Of You And Me
(I Wanna Live In A Dream In My) Record Machine
Aka… What A Life!

Noel Gallagher will begin his next UK tour in Dublin on October 23.

You’ll be able to view the entire press conference via later today.

Suena tan rockero que parece sacado de Definitely maybe, el primer disco de Oasis. Es el segundo single del nuevo disco de Beady Eye, la formación liderada por Liam Gallagher después de romper con Oasis. La canción se llama Four letter word, está llena de punteos de guitarra y la voz lennoniana y agresiva de Liam suena en una forma espléndida. Aunque el vídeo es un poco pobretón. Estamos deseando tener el disco completo para analizarlo. Se llama Different gear, still speeding  y saldrá en febrero.

Este es el vídeo de Four letter word:

Esta es la lista de canciones del álbum. Por cierto, hay una que se llama Beatles and Stones.

– Four letter word.
– Millionaire.
– The roller.
– Beatles and Stones.
– Wind up dream.
– Bring the Light.
– For anyone.
– Kill for a dream.
– Standing on the edge of the noise.
