Here are a few of snippets from this week’s NME magazine. Also including a couple of fan letters praising Kasabian’s new album
The band’s tour hit Edinburgh in June, as they play Murrayfield stadium

In today’s Music Weekly at Glastonbury …
– Serge from Kasabian talks about warming up for Bruce Springsteen (they were just before him on the Pyramid stage), and he talks about his previous Glastonbury experiences: “What goes up, must come down …”
Greetings, Asylum Seekers…
So, Festival season is upon us. Time to dust off the sunscreen, dig the wellies out from the back of the cupboard and start poring over weather charts like Ben Fogle navigating a balsa-wood raft around the Cape Of Good Hope. If life is best lived – as Jack Kerouac once put it – as the pursuit of unforgettable experiences, the British Festival is a good place to start. There can be few who lived through the trenchfoot conditions of Glastonbury in 2007 who will ever forget it. Likewise, anyone who has been there when the sun is high in the sky, the Freak Flags are flying and the music is ringing around the hillsides, who hasn’t felt part of a community. Which, let’s face it, is pretty rare these days in this septic isle.
Whichever way, the band’s appearance on the Main Stage at 8pm on Saturday night was destined to be a night to remember.
In the meantime, here are Serge’s thoughts on the Week That Was…..

How was the gig in Bridlington last Monday?
Ahead of Kasabian’s anthem packed set – just before headliner Bruce Springsteen on the Pyramid Stage – the band were spotting stars too.
Serge said he was too nervous to actually say hello to anyone, including The Boss himself, who it’s rumoured specially requested them on the line up.
“We heard the same rumour!” he said. “I just saw him in the corridor and there was not a lot of love there! I didn’t even say hello though. He gave a kind of smile – maybe.”
Kasabian have had an epiphany. Despite selling nearly two million records to date, their latest single Fire reaching number three and being invited to tour with good friends Oasis, the band have only just realised they’re huge.
‘It’s weird, man,’ begins front man Tom Meighan, with puppy-dog enthusiasm.
‘We were doing Jools Holland the other week and we were the biggest band on it.
