Kasabian


#1

I know they’re an easy target, but with lyrics like these…


#2

Is this the album cover?


#3

If ever a band should not have lyric videos, it’s Kasabian.


#4

On a tenuously related note, the one with the haircut (Serge) lives in a little village not far from where I live, apparently. My friend once saw him dropping Noel Fielding off at the train station. They would be mates, wouldn’t they?

But yeah, shit band.

Here’s the lyrics in full, including a reference to Beverley Hills Cop #current

[Verse 1]
You know it’s the place I need
But you got me walking circles like a dog on a lead
And the doctors say I’m crazy that I’m eight miles thick
I’m like the taste of macaroni on a seafood stick

And you got me switched on baby like electric eel
And I;m tight with Axel Foley that’s just how I feel
Like a grapefruit and the magic trick the prodigal son
I’m walking, I’m walking, I walk, I walk so quick

[Pre-Chorus]
And it just don’t mean a thing
We’ve been waiting far too long
We’ll play it and again
This is just my serenade

[Chorus]
You’re in love with a psycho, you’re in love with a psycho
And there’s nothing you can do about it
I got you all around it

You’re in love with a psycho, you’re in love with a psycho
And there’s nothing you can do about it
You’re never gonna be without it

[Verse 2]
Jibba jabba at the bargain booze
And reciting Charles Bukowski I got nothing to lose
And I wait for you to follow me to shimmer, shit
But you’re walking, you’re walking, you walk, you walk so quick

[Bridge]
Nobody’s gonna take you there
I stick around for the thousand yard stare
I go to sleep in a duffle bag
I’m never up, never down, down, down, down

[Chorus]
Hey, you’re in love with a psycho, you’re in love with a psycho
And there’s nothing you can do about it
I got you all around it

You’re in love with a psycho, you’re in love with a psycho
And there’s nothing you can do about it
You’re never gonna be with

You’re in love with a psycho, you’re in love with a psycho
And there’s nothing you can do about it
You’re never gonna be without it

[Break]
Maybe this will be the fine solution
Maybe this way we’ll find a solution [?]

[Chorus]
You’re in love with a psycho, you’re in love with a psycho
And there’s nothing you can do about it
I got you all around it

You’re in love with a psycho, you’re in love with a psycho
[?]
And there’s nothing you can do about it
You’re never gonna be without it

You’re only supposed to blow the bloody roof off!


#7

Hmmm, I actually like Kasabian.
But I don’t like this.


#8

That’s dreadful.
I loved their early stuff, first album was great, next 2 good with a couple of excellent songs,
Velociraptor was decent but didn’t have the stand out tunes of the previous 2
48:13 was dire and I’m fearing for the new release if that’s anything to go by

Just read this
"What have they been doing since ’48:13′?
Besides touring for the album, including a well-received headline slot at Glastonbury 2014, and collecting Best Album and Best band awards at the 2015 NME Awards,"

Who the hell voted them best album in 2015?


#9

heh


#10

I;m tight with Axel Foley that’s just how I feel


#11

I’m quite a big fan of Kasabian (where do I hand in my indie card to be revoked?). Last album was proper guff and truly laughable, but I actually quite enjoy this single. Lyrics really are fucking woeful though.

Sounds a bit like ‘The World Was a Mess But His Hair Was Perfect’ by The Rakes to me.


#12

Would never listen to their albums but like must of their singles - even Eez-eh!

The fact that I always visualise them as a Second Coming era Stone Roses tribute band fronted by Noel Fielding and Danny Dyer helps…


#13

:grinning::grinning::+1:


#14

I always think of them as an ‘indie band’ Chris Morris might have invented for a thing.
Yours was better though.
Quite like a couple of their songs. I thought ‘Charm Assault’ by Ride had the worst lyrics of the year, but this is pushing it.


#15

They’re on the cover of Q this month and look like they’ve aged about 80 years since the time they’ve been away.


#16

checks out


#17

10-page interview with The 1975…?


#18

Jimi from Doves and Ronnie Wood?


#19

That new single is awful. Serge says he wrote it in 15 minutes - 5 tops, mate.
Their best tunes left with Chris Karloff.


#20

Annoyingly this song is only blowing the roof off my bloody head by getting the chorus stuck in it…

It’s so beige and boring, it could quite easily get played on Local Radio bar the awful lyrics.
