MY BEADY EYE

If it wasn't Liam Gallagher, if the face wasn't so familiar, if it wasn't a bunch of middle-aged men and if there wasn't such a fuss made of it and if 10,000 people hadn't already compared it to Chas'n'Dave, Showaddywaddy, Mud, Oasis, Slade and/or viewed it more favorably than the Charlatans, then you know, in Al's Bar on a certain night or at a sold out Linda's Doll Hut, or upstairs at Cork's in Bearwood, Blinded by the Light by Beady Eye could be a whole lot of fun.

Instead, with Beady Eye being being Beady Eye it means they will have to be secret pleasure for many. a love, well love maybe too strong, but an interest that dare not speak it's name, like listening to Bruce Springsteen, which I can only do when I have the car to myself.

What does Beady Eye actually sound like? Well, like a modern day honky stonk is all I'll say since you can download it and hear for yourself.

I've seen Liam perform a lot of times and I enjoy that sort of entertainment. At the Universal Ampitheatre particularly, between songs he appeared wistful, "While I'm up here singing for you lot - there's some cunts back stage drinking all my beer." For years Liam Gallagher has been a great entertainer. It's not his fault all of those people bought all of his records.

And Beady Eye does make good background music to the less tepid moments of the 2010 student riots. luckily the bbc is canvassing the opinions of the good girls and boys right now who simply abhor violence. It doesn't seem that the police can even be bothered to call for back up while some of the students attempt to invade Millbank Tower and stage a sit in. Or maybe they're colluding with the students. Cuts are promised for all after all. A tv commentator thinks that the police might just be waiting it out until the kids have to leave to go to the toilet. What if they simply borrow the Millbank Tower bathroom key? You fucking idiot.

Why don't the injured police in the UK just go home? They've done their shift. Watch some Kent State video so they'll know what to do next time. Street Demonstrations. It's overtime for journeymen journo's and it's frightening some tourists.

Oh well. Now they're handily blaming 'anarchists' and 'shadowy groups' for the violence.  These anarchists are coming after work, and they're coming with their cricket bats!

Aaron Porter should resign. I think all on all sides can agree with that.
