Mouthing Off Kasabian in their own words
Not only one of the biggest bands at the moment, UK four piece Kasabian are also blessed with some of the biggest gobs in rock, always happy to give journalists plenty of headlines. Here are some of our favourite quotes ahead of their headline date at Blended on April 30
TOM: “Our songs are dirty, sexy, melodic, powerful… they sound like we’ve sh* t ourselves 10,000 feet in the air. No other band are making records like we are. We’re on another wavelength to them lot. We stand out in the middle of all that jingle- jangle sh* t. It blows my mind when I hear it, I’m like ‘ is that really us? And you know what, it f*** ing is! We’re the f*** ing modernists!” ( 2006)
TOM: “On our day, we won’t be beaten by any band on the planet, and I’ve said this before. We’re a match for anyone – even the giants of the universe.” ( 2012)
SERGE: “Arnold Schwarzenegger said he works out to one of our albums, which is pretty mad. And Carol Vorderman.” ( 2012)
SERGE: “Dance music was on its arse before we came along.” ( 2006)
SERGE: “I just think we’re connecting the people, know what I mean? With everyone. From all sorts of walks of life – nurses, people in offices, kids. My grandma’s a big fan too.” ( 2004)
