They're On Fire

I was mesmirised by the new Sony Bravia advert recently, and not because of it's HD Ready quality. Kasabian have put together an amazing new album to add to their previous two, the latter, Empire, being quite a disappointment. The obscure title, West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, can only permit one to get completely lost and go insane for this album. Featuring on this ad is album opener Underdog, probably one of the catchiest tunes this year. An acoustic version of this song shows that Tom is actually a decent singer, except the constant flicking and touching of his newly grown hair can get a tad annoying.

I then proceeded to check out the other songs on the album, and was very amused by the video, and indeed by the title, for Vlad the Impaler, with the 'Impaler' being none other than the lovely comic Noel Fielding. Why anyone would run away from being impaled by him I will never understand.

These two choons are sure to be a hit amongst the mud-covered shivering fans at Slane tomorrow; I am extremely jealous of them, if only for the music!
