Yes, we know there’s some­thing car­toon­ish about Le­ices­ter’s Kasabian (right), but the naysay­ers can wait an­other day be­fore they can stick the book in. Never ones for sub­tlety, Kasabian has shoe­horned this gig (in­ti­mate by their stan­dards – they head­lined Glas­ton­bury a few years ago) into their sched­ule as a way to pre­view ma­te­rial from their forth­com­ing (sixth) al­bum For Cry­ing out Loud. Cel­e­brat­ing their 20th year as a go­ing con­cern, the band has ably man­aged to plug the lad­dish gap left by Oa­sis, while their (at times) un­de­ni­able rock’n’roll swag­ger brings to mind The Stone Roses and Pri­mal Scream. Don’t ex­pect any real in­no­va­tion here, but rather a canny as­sim­i­la­tion of rock mu­sic that gets the pulse racing.
