Kasabian: 'One Direction Are Five Little D--ks'
Brit rockers Kasabian have labelled boy band One Direction as "five little d--ks" for finding success in the US so quickly. The band have made similar attempts to break into the stateside market, but frontman Tom Meighan says his band has endured gruelling tours without finding similar success. "It's frustrating when you see five little d--ks like that take over America, it's horrific but you've just got to get on with it. They're a boyband for God's sake and there will always be room for boybands," Meighan told Gigwise. "They're kids. Let them eat the candy." Speaking of Kasabian's experience in the US, he added: "We went to America and it was a harsh f--king tour we did. We did nearly eight weeks out there and it was f--king gruelling. It was the hardest we've ever been pushed. We did well, we won the war on terror on that one. We've got to keep going back and back." Meighan added that the band have up to 30 song ideas ready for their next album recording, and that they might take extreme measures to find greater fame. "The next album might just be nine songs with no guitars and electronic drums," he said. "Imagine that. We'll be experimenting, that's for sure." Meanwhile, guitarist Serge Pizzorno stunned TV viewers last night when he scored a frankly incredible goal as part of Soccer Aid, an annual charity football match which raises money for Unicef. A-list Hollywood stars who took part included Will Ferrell and Edward Norton, but Pizzorno became the star of the match when his shot defeated the former England goalkeeper David Seaman, who has experience at 75 international matches. Watch the stunning goal from the Kasabian guitarist here:
