Kaiser Chiefs: 'We Predicted The Riots'

Kaiser Chiefs have said that they predicted the riots in the UK. Speaking to NME.com at the V Festival, lead guitarist Andrew "Whitey" White said that their lyrics foretold of the civil unrest around the country, click above the watch the clip. In the video which can be seen above, White said: "It's funny, if you listen to our lyrics and give it a f--king chance, we did predict this. We sing about culture and the state of city centres and the state of society for five years." Singer Ricky Wilson added: "I was reading an article about a moaning old rock star who was saying that no one writes about culture anymore and I was thinking 'who are you listening to?'" Wilson said that the band had flown back from Australia and stayed up watching the rolling news of the riots. "It was pretty shocking stuff. The next day we had a day off (so) we had a bit of a look round and clean up with brooms." Thanks for the report to NME.com.

    This is amazing because I predicted that a bunch of useless musicians were going to use their fame and status to publicly announce dumb things about the riots. Newsflash* Anarchy/punk music has been calling for and predicting riots for 20 plus years now. Nothing new.

    Riots always happen. Saying you predicted the riot in the next five years is just as easy as predicting that you'll stub your toe in the next five years.
