Kasabian guitarist has claimed he hates indie bands despite his group being classified as one

Serge Pizzorno hates indie bands.

The Kasabian guitarist gets annoyed when his rock group are wrongly labelled 'indie'.

He told FHM magazine: "We've never been an indie band, you know, and I sort of f**king hate indie bands, I despise that speed of music. This is future rock.

"I think rock 'n' roll is at a weird point. It needs to step into future and re-invent itself, because people don't buzz off it anymore.

"It needs to work with other genres and fuse into this f**king amazing beast."

Although Sergio became a father last year he has no plans to give up the "s**tload of boozing and s**tload of late nights" with the band.

He explained: "You've got to be built in a certain way to be in a band. You're outlaws in a lot of ways. Like pirates, you know cos there's a f**king s**tload of boozing and s**tload of late nights and every night you've got to be the f**king best, so you've got to have the energy to keep that sustained."


The lairy indie combo have headlined T in the Park and Glastonbury with their tried-and-tested piledriving electro-rock anthems.
