The Kasabian T Shirts Collection at T Shirt Subway
They were born with a Fast Fuse and took their influences from a mix of the Happy Mondays, Primal Scream, Oasis and the Stone Roses. Named after Charles Manson’s driver turned state witness Linda Kasabian it can only be the amazing Kasabian.
Let’s clear this up they have no affiliation or support for Manson it is best explained by Serge ‘When I saw here name something just hit me, it sounded cool’ that’s how the band got their name. The boys from Leicester drew their first album up living on a communal farm, leaving and breathing music together for weeks on end. Although they were eventually kicked out for reasons unknown their style had been created a mix of fragmented beats with swaggering rock and roll.
Their songs are firm favourites amongst the working class, British public often football/soccer fans whose terrace mentality seem to be tapped into by the rampaging beats and catchy music Kasabian dish up. Although Kasabian self titles first album had mixed reviews It did give the band 2 top ten hits Cutt Off and Lost Souls Forever.
Then the big albums, Empire and West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, which gave us the incredible, Underdog, Fire, Club Foot, Processed Beats and Shoot the Runner. Widely regarded as the shinning light in U.K rock n roll they are no stranger to controversy and the media love them for it.
When playing in Paris front man Tom Meighan came on stage sporting the brand new England away strip beckoning the crowd react. They did with a chorus of boo’s until the band started playing and they animosity was quickly forgotten. Future legends or flash in the pan that’s for you to decide all we know is we love their music and we love their T Shirts.
