By on

Liam Gallagher and his band, Beady Eye, closed their celebrity charity concert for Japan in London last week with a special rendition of The Beatle’s Across The Universe, and have now recorded the song to raise further money for victims of the Japanese tsunami disaster.

Liam and his band were joined at the concert at Brixton Academy by Paul Weller, Blur's Graham Coxon, Primal Scream, Richard Ashcroft and many others, with a crowd of approximately 5000 raising £150,000 for the British Red Cross.

“It’s not just because we’re popular in Japan,” Liam explained to The Independent prior to the gig. “As a human, you just think it’s heavy. We’ve always had close ties with Japan and great affection for our fans out there. Our hope is that this benefit concert can help the people of Japan.”

Beady Eye headed into the RAK recording studio the day before the gig to record their version of Across The Universe, which The Beatle’s originally recorded for a benefit album for WWF. The album is available for download from the official Beady Eye website.
