Kasabian lash out at ‘whingeing’ Bloc Party

They’re not the only band to get a battering

Kasabian have hit out the current music scene for being miserable.

Guitarist Serge Pizzorno, speaking in this week’s NME, singled out Bloc Party, saying: “they’ll get rumbled.”

“That’s their thing, innit, concentrating on what’s shit about life. In 20 years’ time nobody will give a fuck about those bands,” he said. “What’s the point in whingeing? That’s not what a band’s about. A band should be about having a good time. With your mates.”

As an example, the Leicester quartet slammed Test Icicles for splitting up.

Singer Tom Meighan said: “What a bunch of wankers! Give it up, mate. King’s Cross rent boys, we call ‘em – all those bands.”

Kasabian also dubbed Pete Doherty “a fucking tramp” and The Automatic as “horrible”, as they exclusively chatted to NME about their new album and the rollercoaster two years since the release of their eponymous debut.

Also in this week’s NME, we talk to Muse about each track on their mega new album, review Thom Yorke’s ‘The Eraser’ and present the maddest ever Peter Robinson Vs…, with Luke Steele from The Sleepy Jackson!
