Kasabian is a British rock band, that formed in Leicestershire, in 1999. They named theirselves after Linda Kasabian, who was involved with the infamous Charles Manson. So far they have released three albums: Kasabian, Empire and Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum. They will be starting to work on their fourth in November of this year.
I started listening to Kasabian after I heard the track Reason is Treason as the intro track for Gran Turismo 4. I find their songs all very catchy, a good example of good contemporary rock music, which in my opinion quite hard to find these days, with all the rap and electronic music.
The lead singer, Tom Meighan is known for alot of funny and outspoken comments about other musicians. After playing the Ibiza Rocks 2007 event, Meighan told The Skinny that he "wouldn't give a fuck if the island sank". Additionally, in an interview with the New Musical Express, he said that David S. Sexton and Mark Wahlberg were "absolute fannies".
Also after the Live Earth concert he said that he wished to see Madonna perform as she looked like his old gym teacher, although he then went on to say that his old gym teacher was a man. He has also called Julian Casablancas as "a posh fucking skier", Pete Doherty "a fucking tramp", and Justin Timberlake "a midget with whiskers". Great stuff.
