Kasabian are back! And Serge is not only musically gifted, he's also got a way with a quote! Here are some of his words of wisdom.

"The foreign fans listen to the music more and don't call us The Stone Roses or anything... There's no baggage like in the UK."
“I was gonna call it 'Horsemeat' but I thought it was a bit ridiculous." (NME, 2014)

"I decided on the name and the length before I finished the record. I promise you the amount of time and effort it took to get the CD correct, it was insane on every level.” (Radio X, 2014)

"I’ve got a thing for trees at the moment. I’m like Tony Soprano in my vest and dressing gown watering my trees. That calms me the fuck down." (FHM, 2006)
“Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Pistols…fuckin’ name ‘em all…the Gallaghers, The Smiths, fuckin’ Joy Division…we’re in that fuckin’ same line mate, in that same fuckin’, blue fuckin’, blue vein mate and I’ll stand by that ‘til the day I die.” (Guardian, 2008)
