Psychedelic warriors, stadium-busters and all round bloody nice guys as it turns out Kasabian paid us a visit recently.
The band braved NME HQ (pictured above) for the full works: mag interview, photo shoot, video interviews, radio session and TV takeover – so in their honour it’s Kasabian Week at NME.
There’s loads of stuff going on over the site. Check out our extensive photo gallery from the day and head over to the video section for loads of Kasabian videos including an exclusive three-part documentary on the band featuring interviews with all four members alongside NME Radio‘s Chris Martin, Radar editor Jaimie Hodgson and other key figures.
Meanwhile over on the Bands’ Blog, Serge reveals the top ten tracks that rock his world, including DJ Shadow, Rage Against The Machine and two massive tunes from Babe Ruth and The Faces. Hear them all here.
During their trip the band performed ‘Underdog’, ‘Fire’ and ‘Where Did All The Love Go’. NME Radio have been playing the tracks out all week.
The band also recorded a couple of takeovers for NME TV. Watch them introducing their top twenty videos on Sky Channel 382 on Friday (Oct 30th) at 9pm and tune in again on Sunday (Nov 1st) at 11pm to see the band talk through their own best videos.
For their magazine interview, we asked YOU what you wanted to know via NME.COM and @nmemagazine at Twitter. Grab this week’s mag to read the band on swine flu, stagedivers and crappy aftershow parties.
Finally – we’ve got some signed copies of the NME issue they featured in back in May up for grabs. Just comment below and let us know what you think of Tom’s new haircut and we’ll be in touch soon with some copies. This comp is closed: winners below. Feel free to talk about Tom’s hair anyway.
