West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum

hey everyone

there's a school of thought, right, that in an ideal world, dudes just walk around in brown leather tanned waistcoats, wearing sensational battered flares and awesome boots. they have nomadic, Viking like straight flat long hair with a straight cut fringe that has the style of being flattened and kept in place by a helmet. the dudes all either have beards, or awe inspiring sideburns that make Vegas era The King, Elvis Presley appear closer to a skinhead than anything else.

such an ideal world needs the correct soundtrack. that correct soundtrack would most certainly be West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum by the excellent Kasabian.

from the opening trilogy of Underdog, Where Did The Love Go? and Swarfiga right through to the penultimate track, my favourite Fire, this, ladies and gents, is one hell of an album.

Kasabian appear to be the only "new" band making decent, proper records. and, by my word, do they do it in some style. buy this album and play it loud.

be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
