TRACK OF THE DAY - BEADY EYE - THE ROLLER

 

As Liam Gallagher has lived out time on this multi-coloured sphere an incapability to self-doubt has persisted, and once again he has proved himself correct. When young chancers and pedlars of 'grit-pop' Brother claimed ownership over the best songs in the world it was more than an homage to hero Liam Gallagher's gumption. Like The Beatles before Oasis Oasis precursor these young pups, but Brother's significance is limited and their forefathers limitless. It is difficult to realise the cultural consequence of Oasis and now Beady Eye without having an iota of dubiety. How can a self-proclaimed non-reading, thuggish ex-teenage thief that wrote Little James be one of the most important men in culture? Well it lies in the direction in which he tips his Pretty Green mod cap. 

 

Gallagher's genius is in his ability to assimilate the past into the zeitgeist. It was Gallagher's unique position on culture that transformed the 90s and Beady Eye feels just as important now as Oasis did then. It feels as if Gallagher has leafed through the history of popular music and created a hydra-headed superstar omitting all the unnecessary bits. New track The Roller sucks from the nipple of instant Karma and nourishes itself into a poignant beautiful rock n' roll song so well judged it almost makes me weep at the thought of popular music without this man. Well there you go the man's fucking cool as is Beady Eye.
