Ricky Wilson doesn't like modern indie. Not a bit:
"Indie bands are big, so a lot of record companies are pushing indie bands and going 'we've got one and they dress in vests'," Wilson said. "That indie by numbers is boring."
And how are the Kaiser Chiefs going to mark themselves out as different from the indie-by-numbers? By working with Mark Ronson and including a duet with Lily Allen on the new album. Let's hope they can cope with the cold wind of rejected mainstreamism, eh?
