Taking the music world by surprise and achieving immediate success with their very first albums, Kasabian are today among rock royalty in the UK and the world. Eurochannel invites you on an auditory adventure to savor music that transcends eras, lambent melodies and effortlessly hypnotic riffs in this special of Kasabian’s greatest hits.
Formed in Leicester, Kasabian began in 1997 when they were known as Saracuse. Named after Linda Kasabian, Charles Manson's getaway driver turned state witness, the band’s first production was recorded on a farm to avoid any disruption, and went on to the Top 20 lists upon release.
With their unique style and confidence, Kasabian’s music is dynamic. Their electronic, rock-oriented sound, which harks back to the Madchester days of baggy pants and druggy dancing, has proven them to be authentic rockers. Their shows have stolen the spotlight at Glastonbury and many other festivals, and their music is heard from Tegucigalpa to Amsterdam to Tokyo.
Kasabian’s music has been widely associated with football (soccer). Their single “Club Foot” was featured in the FIFA games’ franchise and their single “Fire” was selected as the English Premier League official song for the 2010/2011 season. Without a doubt, 2016 was a glorious year for the band as their city team (Leicester City) became champion of the English Premier League, which included celebrations with a free concert by the band at Leicester’s Victoria Park.
Eurochannel invites you to bang your heads and play air guitar with the catchy riffs of England’s new rock revolutionary band!
Kasabian are an English rock band formed in Leicester in 1997. The band's original members consisted of vocalist Tom Meighan, guitarist and vocalist Sergio Pizzorno, guitarist Chris Karloff, and bassist Chris Edwards. The band's line-up was completed by drummer Ian Matthews in 2004. In 2010 and 2014, Kasabian won the Q Awards for “Best Act in the World Today,” and were also named "Best Live Act" at the 2014 Q Awards and the 2007 NME Awards. The band's music is often described as "indie rock," but Pizzorno has said he "hates indie bands" and does not feel Kasabian fits into that category.
