Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno has said he thinks UKIP leader Nigel Farage is a "dangerous man" who the whole country should be "keeping an eye on".

The right-wing, anti-Europe political party recently stormed to victory in the European elections, gaining MEPs in Scotland, Wales and every English region. It was the first time since the general election in 1906 that a political party other than Labour or the Conservatives have topped a national election.

Speaking in this week's NME, which is on newsstands now or available digitally, Kasabian guitarist and songwriter Serge Pizzorno says of Farage: "He's just a very dangerous man."

'It's incredible how seriously people are taking him, so on that basis we should start taking him seriously as well and figure out what we can do about it," he added. "Growing up in Leicester, it's so multicultural. It's created an incredible city; a vibrant, creative place. It's what makes it amazing. We need to keep an eye on that geezer. Hard."

Kasabian will play a huge homecoming show in Leicester this weekend (June 21). The sold-out, 35,000-capacity gig will mark ten years since the group released their self-titled debut album.

The band’s latest album '48:13' entered the Official Album Chart at Number One last weekend (June 15), giving the group the fourth Number One album of their careers. Kasabian will headline the Pyramid Stage on the Sunday night at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
