Because quite frankly, this is not worth losing a roof over.
it is what it is

Why do people immediately shut down something that's new and different. At least they're doing something creative that is unusual, it's rare in music nowadays when artists are brave enough to break the boundaries. I personally love this sound, if it's just constantly the same it's boring! Lighten up
At least you've got a roof over your head.
But not sure why they get so much vitriol.
more ridicule, and they are pretty hapless
Whatever you want to call it, just not sure why.
bloody love my vitriol for some unknowable reason.
oh...sorry i couldn't hear the thread properly with the sounds of the outdoors thundering through my previously rooved (?) office.
played it with the window open, probably put a dent in the moon
it's so MASSIVE it's an inevitable consequence
Kasabian smashed the proverbial roof off the Echo Arena last night
Kasabian blew the roof off London's Royal Albert Hall on Friday night
Tom Meighan raises the roof
This New Year's Eve Kasabian will be taking the roof off the O2 Arena (NB this is from their own site)
it demonstrated that you can keep things dark-eyed while still taking the roof off
a colossal musical extravaganza set to take the roof off The O2
Shame it's shit.
in case anyone wants to update it with fresh anecdotes after listening to ^that....
And we'll have a pretentious artwork colour wheel.
Maximo Park or someboby like that. They can make a 'statement' about music as a commodity! Can't be worse than that everyday quiet robot batpeople song.
moon's cock off in the first verse.
I like it being kicked off.
Just found this freaking hilarious quote (2006): "Our songs are dirty, sexy, melodic, powerful… they sound like we’ve shit 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 shit. It blows my mind when I hear it, I’m like ‘is that really us? And you know what, it fucking is! We’re the fucking modernists!"
that they used to use before Kasabian started making music for the highlights bit of the football highlights programme
Also sounds like the menu music from a PS1 raleigh game or something, especially that 'sitar' solo bit.
I actually kind of like it.
think I sort of love Kasabian
AND does a Jimmy Savile impression. That's what I'll take from this video.
Kind of fun.
I just can't help but feel happy every time it comes on the radio, it's so absurdly shite, but I feel like that's what Kasabian were going for, the cheeky scamps.
doesn't take itself seriously at all, just a feel good summer tune nothing more, nothing less, i'm no Kasabian fan but properly loving this song so much better than most of the joyless stuff that gets rave reviews on this site.
just listened to it twice and then went through their singles back catalogue. sound.
absolutely agree. It's utterly atrocious, but in the most enjoyable way possible. Listened to it like 3 times in a row with a massive grin on my face.
