guitarist Serge Pizzorno
gave today's fans quite a bashing, ripping the online culture and the lack of attention among modern listeners.
Chatting with Digital Spy
, Serge was asked on whether Kasabian would be equally successful if they were formed today."It's mental now, it's really f--king hard,"
the guitarist replied. "You can see why there's no bands left almost, it's really really tough. I remember if I had a CD that was like 15 quid or whatever, y'know half your wages and you would go 'Oh no this is rubbish what have I done? I've got to listen to it again!' and then 5, 6 listens in you're like 'This is amazing.'"When you just give something 30 seconds on some laptop speakers and then you review it and go 'Oh this is s--t - bang, I just hate that'. It's horrible, that culture of form an opinion after 20 seconds then tell everyone on the Internet it's s--t,"
The latest Kasabian studio effort, "48:13
," saw its release on June 6, featuring a total of 13 fresh tunes.
