14-09-2017 12:00:00 14-09-2017 12:00:00 America/New_York Kasabian | 8:00PM Bowie, Prince, George Michael, Brexit, Trump… by most markers, 2016 wasn't a vintage year. Unless you were Serge Pizzorno, that is. "I was just feeling good about everything," recalls Kasabian's guitarist/songwriter/all-round sonic shaman. "I got married, Leicester City won the league and I'd written my best record yet!". Serge has every right to be upbeat. Kasabian's sixth album is genuinely the best selection of tunes they've put out since they first erupted into the public conscious back in 2004. A straight flush of knock out tune after knock out tune, it could almost be a greatest hits. In fact, when the day comes to pick an all-time Kasabian starting line-up, every one of these songs is going to be jossling Club Foot, elbowing Fire out the way and tugging on Empire's shirt for a deserved place in the team. Its all-killer make up was no accident either. "I decided to give myself six weeks to write an album like they used to do back in the day and that became really inspiring" Serge recalls. "I was like 'Right, I'm ready to go into the studio and make a guitar album with loads of really good songs on it.' Which sounds so basic, but literally that was it. I made sure there was no fat on anything, it was going to be classic songs, no self-indulgence, nothing was going on there that shouldn't. I'd heard Berry Gordy had said if you've not got them in the first four bars then you're finished, so I went in with this old school attitude of song-writing." http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=248116 Terminal 5 Terminal 5
