Here at Tickets There, the world’s greatest music blog of all time, we believe in credit where credit’s due and Liam Gallagher so far deserves all the credit you can give him. He broke up Oasis (basically) and set out on a path to form an ever better band. Whether or not you believe he’s accomplished this (and we’ll know more next month when the album comes out), you have to give it to the man that so far he’s been doing  bang up job with Beady Eye.

Today, Beady Eye has announced their very first shows on Irish soil with two dates in Dublin’s Olympia on April 14th and 15th with a Northern gig in Belfast’s Ulster Hall on April 17th.

The buzz around the lads grows every day and things are looking good for next months debut release, Different Gear, Still Speeding.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 28th priced at €36.60 for Dublin and £30 in Belfast (plus booking fee. MCD Promotions running the gig / Ticketmaster.ie for tickets).

Beady Eye – Bring The Light (Single Review)

Posted in Music, Single Review with tags , , , on November 10, 2010 by Tickets There

It’s excellent, no fooling! Laim Gallagher’s post-Oasis band Beady Eye have released their debut single, Bring The Light and it’s a perfect mix of classic guitar pop, sexy sixties dance vigor and that never-say-die rock n roll attitude we all secretly love about Liam.

Rather than the expected Beatles / Oasis rip off we all thought he was going to churn out, Liam has released a genuinely fun, thundering Piano / guitar driven masterpiece of song writing. It’s simple, it’s short and it’ll rock the ‘expletive’ socks off you. If we still had vinyl juke boxes in our diners, Bring The Light would be the song Danny Zuko would stick on. Now, let’s see what further treats their album has in store!

Beady Eye: Download Debut Single From Tomorrow

Posted in Music, News with tags , , , on November 9, 2010 by Tickets There

From the site that never brought you Oasis, we decided this had to go out. The moment has arrived when the world will finally know the answer to that age old question, “how long would Liam Gallagher survive without Noel to help him along?”. The infamous hell raising Mancunian and his new band Beady Eye are set to release the first single, ‘Bring The Light’ from their forthcoming debut album tomorrow and fans only have to visit the groups official site for a free download.

Tickets There will be watching this with a grin. In many ways we’re hoping Liam comes out with a cracking piece of music. Not like Noel has exactly been prolific as a songwriter since the mid nineties so let’s hear what Liam can do. If he fails, he just lives up to expectations and that won’t be anywhere near as fun.

Good luck lads, TT’s rooting for ye!

Save The 100 Club

Posted in Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 4, 2010 by Tickets There

Well folks, yet another historic venue is coming close to biting the dust. London’s world famous 100 Club is on the verge of shutting its doors permanently as greedy landlords up the venues rent unrealistically high (uhm, recession people??).

In response to this, fans and friends of the venue have started a campaign to raise £500,000 which will cover immediate debts and increases as well as provide enough capital to invest in the clubs future and once again secure it’s dominance on the London live scene.

As many of you will know, the club was highly instrumental in the early English punk scene, providing bands like The Sex Pistols and The Clash a venue to play when others were less willing to allow punk hordes crash through their doors. It has also been a cornerstone for Jazz musicians and played host to some of the biggest names in the world including The Rolling Stones, Muse, Louis Armstrong, B.B. King, Oasis, Metallica, The Kinks, Jeff Beck and literally hundreds more.

It’s time to stop letting these clubs close down. Tickets There remembers London eight years ago when we travelled over for a Sex Pistols show at Crystal Palace and top of the list of places to see was The 100 Club. The excitement of seeing the venue almost exactly as it was 35 years ago when the Pistols and Clash graces it’s stage was a real thrill and we know others out there travel for the very same reason, to see a truly historical site that just so happens to double as a fully functioning live venue to this day.

We’ve never gotten to see a show there and it’s still a dream to go back and see it in it’s full splendor and we don’t want fecking landlords closing it down and letting a Mrs. Selfridge or porn shop move in (just look across the street for proof of what dominates that side of Oxford Street).

We’ll be donating and we hope you do to.

MySpace Review – The Black Strands

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, MySpace Review with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 11, 2010 by Tickets There


Last week things were pretty bleak on the review front. With no requests from bands and nothing showing up on the radars, we were saved at the last minute with Million Dollar Reload. Since then the floodgates have opened and we have a list again.

Formed in early 2009, The Black Strands (formally Rotovibe….but not anymore thank god) are a group we’ve been listening to and loving for a few days. After less than a year together, the band have amassed a tidy collection of psychedelic / Alterative rock tracks that resemble a sound you’d imagine Shaun Ryder, The Stone Roses, Oasis and The Velvet Underground would come out with. Although there are elements of all these bands styles, the Black Strands have harnessed them perfectly so they come together to make a very pleasant, unique array of sounds.

As usual, we’ve never seen the band live or heard their album.

Demo’s! Demo’s and samples are generally things we avoid but after one listen to the first track, Here it Comes (All Around You), we were hooked. The vocals are straight out of the Madchester post punk / alt rock scene. The music is like The Stone Roses playing rough doom indie with trimmings of drug inducted splendors coming at you from all angles. It’s dirty, raw and dark. We like it!

Shine Your Light has more of an upbeat tone about it. This is helped by the vocals changing on going down a more Verve/ Richard Ashcroft direct. The added charm of Indian styled instruments worked for The Beatles and always helps this kind of sound become a little more mystical and transcendent. Wholes things topped off by a nice feedback filled ending. Another one we like. The future’s bright, the futures Black!

Before the Light Fades throws another darker sounding style in our path. Musically it’s a mix of both the songs we’ve heard before with a faster pace. Rather than suspended changes and restrained energy, Before the Light Fades is a stomper. It’s fiery and dark with a bleak with a constantly building chorus. Great song but now it’s time for one of the best openings we’ve heard this year. Opening with a snippet of audio from The Wicker Man,   Come Alive (Leave This City) is an upbeat, indie styled track that could, with a little bit of rework, become an anthem. The chorus is infectious; the guitars are on hand to deliver some of those killer driving alt rock riffs and there’s some very basic but perfect indie drumming to round it off. This one’s more along the lines of Joy Division covering Oasis. We love variation and we love this band. Also, the organ adds a nice touch.

Sweet Salvation’s up next and it’s another full on rock icon styled anthem. Very Door’s / velvet underground influenced in its composer but alt rock in its style. It’s a serious song that doesn’t drag on too long and just gets stronger and stronger with each listen. Next song, Last Stand on the other hand is full on country rock. Hank Williams III meets Desperado. No more than Sweet Jane, I’m not sure how these guys came to write songs like this so well. Normally this perfection is held by the American and English musicians that created it based on the life around them. The Black Strands must be immersed in these scenes to be able to pull these tracks off so well. There’s no shortage of new instruments coming into the fray, no shortage of styles and, well – nothing they can’t do it seems.

Demons Gold brings is to the second last track of their extensive playlist. It may only be eight songs but after six you’ll already feel that you’ve listened to a wealth of bands and it just keeps going. Demons Gold is one we haven’t quite placed our finger on yet. It’s similar to structure and style to Shine Your Light Fades and the closest thing to a Stone Roses track they have on MySpace, perhaps the title is even a nod to the Roses, Fools Gold. The riff towards the end harks back to the Manic Street Preachers late-nineties success days. Not a bad song, but not on par with the others. Then again, it’s a demo, not a final cut.

Final song Become closes one of the best MySpace Playlists you’ll find. It’s atmospheric, heavy and filled with more guitars than the other seven combined. Nice, very nice!

 We’ve been very fortunate to find alot of great bands recently and these guys are right up in the top three. If you like any of the bands mentioned then you’re sure to love The Black Strands. Check out their MySpace by Clicking Here!

In the meantime, Tickets There is heading back for more. Until next time, TT out.
