Personalities | Kasabian | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 1997–present)

Sometimes likened to proletariat rockers Oasis, Kasabian – Tom Meighan (vocals), Serge Pizzorno (guitar), Chris Karloff (guitar) and Christopher Edwards (bass) – hail from Leicester. There is more to the four-piece than a simple rock template, however, with much of the band’s sound augmented by multiple vocal sections and a chatter of electronica in the same vein as Primal Scream’s mid-period albums. Self-assured, arrogant and growing in stature by the day, Kasabian might well have won over even the harshest detractor.
