Primal Scream - Bobby Gillespie Backs Beady Eye

Subscribe to Primal Scream alerts

Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie hopes Liam Gallagher's new band Beady Eye is a huge success.

The singer is yet to hear the band's first track 'Bring The Light' but insists he is a big fan of the 'Songbird' singer and is confident he will make a rocking album with his bandmates Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock, who all also performed with Oasis.

He said: "I love Liam and I love Noel and I wish them both the best of luck in their new musical explorations. I don't understand measuring people against what they did formerly. Either it rocks or it doesn't rock. I hope it's successful for Liam."

The Manchester rocker decided to form his band after his brother Noel Gallagher quit the group in August 2009 following a pre-concert bust-up.

Though Bobby hasn't heard Beady Eye's new material yet, he will have the opportunity to see them as the group have announced their first live dates for March next year.

However, Gem has insisted fans won't hear songs from their old band as they're all focusing on the new group.

He said: "We're just buzzing about this band and looking forward to the album coming out and getting out on the road. And there'll be no Oasis songs, either, if you were going to ask."
