About us

Kasabian are an English rock band from Leicester, formed by Tom Meighan (vocals), Sergio Pizzorno (guitar and vocals), Chris Edwards (bass), Chris Karloff (Keyboards and Guitar) and Ash Hannis (drums) who left shortly before the release of the first album. During the recording of the band’s second album, the drummer Ian Matthews became a permanent member. Shortly after this, Chris Karloff was asked to leave due to “creative differences”. He was replaced during the recording of their third album by Jay Mehler. The band members are from the Leicestershire villages of Blaby and Countesthorpe. They met while attending Leysland High School and Countesthorpe Community College both in the village of Countesthorpe. The band took their name from Linda Kasabian, the young pregnant girl who drove the car in which the killers escaped after the murder of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, the second of the Tate-LaBianca murders. The band has been compared with the likes of Primal Scream, with whom they share an electronica-indie rock fusion, and The Stone Roses and Oasis, with whom they share confidence, swagger and rough vocal style.
