Tom Meighan, bless him, thinks Kasabian are a bit like Thom Yorke and friends:
We always try to reinvent ourselves in the way that a band like Radiohead would do. Or we come at things from another angle.That's actually a little bit heartbreaking, isn't it? It's like a pacamac manufacturer revealing they're trying to be couture.
What would "coming at things from another angle" mean for Kasabian? Do they move the drums to a different part of the recording studio?
Surely the important thing about Radiohead is that they don't set out to sound like anyone else, or else make a different-sounding record for the sake of it? And isn't the failure to grasp that pretty much the reason why Kasabian will never be a band like Radiohead?
