Shockwaves NME Awards Show: Kasabian, Hammersmith Palais; Tues Feb 13


It was BIG, and it was CLEVER

Last time Kasabian played in London it was in the fun-vacuum that is Earl’s Court and they still managed to summon up the spirit of T-Rex playing Spike Island. For their special friends NME, their next trick was to bring it back to the source, with a sweaty bumper-to-bumper session at Hammersmith Palais, the site of the awards themselves. And despite the sound [I]cutting out[/I] at the start, the likes of ‘Me Plus One’ are as mighty as ever. Really, we’re running out of big words.
