Last week saw the release of a new record by Liam Gallagher and John Squire, called imaginatively ‘Liam Gallagher & John Squire’. Squire was of course the guitarist in The Stone Roses, one of the very best English bands, who hasn’t released an album since 2004. Of course, he was supposed to have written one during The Stone Roses’ lucrative reunion, but that fell apart after a few (very good) singles. According Gallagher, Squire hadn’t picked up a guitar to write on for an age, but sent Liam some of the demos and away they went. Whether Squire can return to the glory days remains to be seen, but hell, Gallagher’s solo reinvention has seen him play Knebworth, so why not?
