But don't expect 'Table Tennis Boom Box' to be Serge and Tom's new single…
However, the 44 second long ‘Table Tennis Boom Box’ is unlikely to gain an official release, as it seems to be a joke track recorded with the help of a ping pong ball as percussion.
Apparently recorded live backstage at the Yokohama Blitz venue in Yokohama, Japan, the acoustic song was posted during the band’s current Japanese tour. Scroll down to listen to the recording.
Earlier this month Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan insisted there was a “drought” of rock’n’roll bands in the charts. According to Contact Music, the singer said he was “glad” he and his bandmates provided an alternative to groups who were “frightened” of making more interesting records, while guitarist Serge Pizzorno claimed that music was “overrun by pop”.
There’s a rock’n’roll drought at the moment, so I’m glad we’re here. People are frightened of making records that sound good on the radio.
Pizzorno went on to add: “We’ve been overrun by pop and I hate that indie attitude. Life’s too short to give a fuck.”
Last year Kasabian claimed they were “an albums band now” and were no longer interested in releasing “big hit singles”. The band released their fourth studio album, ‘Velociraptor!’, in September last year.
