Beady Eye: The Roller
Beady Eye: The Roller (Liberator)

Elsewhere doesn't usually trouble itself with singles -- but this one may be of some interest for longtime Oasis fans, or those just curious to know what's up with the Gallagher brothers since Noel quit.

Beady Eye are Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer and Andy Bell (from Oasis) with Chris Sharrock.

This is the first single from the forthcoming album Different Gear, Still Speeding. There is a video of it here, but I just thought -- given Oasis' long fixation with the Beatles and specifically John Lennon -- you might also like to compare this single with Lennon's Nobody Told Me There'd Be Days Like These from his posthumous Milk and Honey album of '84.

Separated at birth perhaps?

I'll check that Lennon song out. Interestingly enough, The Roller was written by Gem Archer and was originally going to be on 2002's Oasis album Heathen Chemistry.
