I just read the news about Meighan that he pleaded guilty to assaulting
his former fiancee Vikki Ager while smelling heavily of intoxicants,
which of course is bloody malicious! No excuses for attacking women!

KASABIAN – ‘L.S.F.’ – 10 Years Ago At ‘T In The Park Festival’ In Scotland…

Memorable live moments

Watch KASABIAN, one of the best live bands of this century, play an ecstatic version of ‘L.S.F.’ (Lost Souls Forever) with a crowd of thousands going nuts during the euphoric ‘Lalalalala’ finale at T In The Park Festival in Scotland in 2010, ten years ago. This is what ecstatic live music is all about. Press play and scream along on the top of your lungs…

for humanity around this messed up planet. Here are 5 gripping symphonies I have
on repeat as a part of a 3-hour handkerchief at hand mix on 25th December 2016…
