Kasabian...

Post  misery guts on Sat Jan 24, 2015 1:11 pm

Leicester having previously given the world such musical giants as Engelbert Humperdinck, it is perhaps more modern to celebrate the 4-piece band who clocked up their 5th album last year, and often provide good copy, good videos and good songs. A character like Serge Pizzorno in the gang is a plus, of course. It took me a few albums to catch up with what the fuss was about, but I get it now. Here are a few of their finest:

L.S.F.

Empire

Fire

Re-Wired

Eez-Eh

Probably a good bet for a very long career, if they want it drunken

Kasabian: From Club Foot to now (Dec 11)
Simple run-through of all their videos. I didn't get them at first, but I've been more and more impressed as the years have gone by. The best noise to come from Leicester since Engelbert Humperdinck.

On Set: With Kasabian
The self-styled Leicester Beastie Boys (!) are back with a new album, and this half-hour covered the making of their new video, 'Eez-eh', somewhat more fun-seeking than usual. Notable aspects were actress Noomi Rapase mimicking the band members in performance, whilst the band larked for the cameras. I do like the song, though.

Kasabian @ Glastonbury
Closing the festival by headlining the Pyramid stage on Sunday night with over an hour & a half, mixing material from all their 5 albums. They even brought along Noel Fielding to reprise his Vlad The Impaler non-hilarity. Closer L.S.F. hit the right note with the crowd. Overall, entertaining stuff.

Kasabian: World Stage
From the Ulster Hall, Belfast, Nov 2011, a short burst of hits old and new, notably Club Foot and Empire.

Kasabian @ T in the Park
July 10, a lengthy set with material from all across their career, plus a few surprise cover touches thrown in along the way (Word Up, People Are Strange, Lust For Life, etc). The crowd went wild, as they should for such a good show. They've really got it down.

Soundchain with Zane Lowe: Kasabian
A short chat with performance to plug their most recent album, this 2014 prog tries to pin down their influences, which are unusual in the case of both Serge and Tom (Cypress Hill, Michael Jackson and DJ Shadow, for example). They spoke fondly of Noel Gallagher, and having the occasional fight. The music sounded good, of course.

The Leicester rockers managed to be part of yesterday's victory celebrations for Leicester City FC after their triumphant shock win of the Premiership. Tracks like "Underdog" really summed it all up Laughing

They're back with a new LP soon, called "For Crying Out Loud", and a lead single "You're In Love With A Psycho":

Kasabian video 'sad and tired' say mental health campaigners
Kasabian's latest music video has been called "damaging" by a mental health organisation.
The video for You're In Love With A Psycho sees band members dancing around a mental institution with presenter Noel Fielding and Taboo actor Stephen Graham.
Mental health campaigners Time to Change said the video played into a "sad and tired" stereotype.
Let's judge for ourselves:

You're In Love With A Psycho
