Beta Backers Three albums influenced
Oasis Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants BIG BROTHER, 2000
Noel Gallagher’s early Beta Band fandom surfaced on Oasis’s fourth album, single Go Let It Out’s lifting acoustic guitars straight from Inner Meet Me.
Badly Drawn Boy The Hour Of Bewilderbeast TWISTED NERVE/ XL, 2000
Damon Gough definitely drew on the example set by The Three EPs, as apparent in his folk-ish leanings and his habit of evoking the bohemian demi-monde.
Django Django Django Django BECAUSE MUSIC, 2012
Drummer and producer David Maclean is the brother of the Beta Band’s DJ and keyboardist John, and you can hear the familial link in Django Django’s debut album which mixed arty depth with pop nous and a pleasing kind of eccentricity.
