Who: Beady Eye Where: Zepp Tokyo, Aomi, Koto-ku, Tokyo, Japan When: Mon 12 September 2011 The Gallagher's have been a part of the Rockbrat world for so long, they're like family.

Part of the charm of the Gallaghers is their no nonsense approach. Neither suffer fools lightly, be they journalists or not, so at last, late last year this little book was released that compiles all the wit and wisdom of the Gallaghers in one book.

Beady Eye are essentially Oasis minus Noel – and their first single ‘Bring … Continue reading What’s The Rockbrat Listening To Today ? Beady Eye: ‘Bring The Light’

But when big brother Noel walked out on the band for what seems like the final time one year ago - he effectively … Continue reading Rockbrat Wonders: Why Noel and Liam Gallagher Cannot Resolve Their Differences ?
Who: Oasis When: Makomanai Ice Arena – Sapporo, Japan - 22 March 2009 With Noel and Liam gone their separate ways - it would appear unlikely that Oasis will ever re-unite. It would now appear then, that a snowy and wintry Sunday evening - in Sapporo, Japan of all places - will be the final … Continue reading Best Gigs The Rockbrat’s Seen ? Oasis – Sapporo, Japan (2009)
Note: This is a re-published post - written in 2009 when the great Oasis were still active ! British Rock kings Oasis have always been held in high regard with the Japanese fans – it’s a relationship which has never really been analysed – until now. I am a fan of both subjects, so thought … Continue reading Rockbrat Wonders: About The Oasis-Japan Relationship
Just back from Japan with a bunch of Oasis collectables packed in the suit case. I thought I would make an update on the previous Oasis-Japan post as it never ceases to amaze me just how much the boys are adored over there.
