Kasabian are a British indie / dance / rock band. They've been recording for about the last 5 years or so. They first came to my attention through an amazing performance of "Club Foot" on a late night talk show. I hadn't been paying attention to the show, but the hook from that song caught me, and I've been a fan ever since.

Goodie for me, and those of you like me who are rabid about finding extra tracks, they've issued a slew of non-album stuff on their singles, and the occasional various artist compilation.

Here's just a few of those:

(files expired)

Kasabian - "Trash Can" Starting out with a mellow one, from the "Club Foot" single.
Kasabian - "Out of Space" (Live Lounge Acoustic) Not completely acoustic, but isn't that usually the case. From the "Cutt Off" single.
Kasabian - "Runaway" (Live Del Shannon cover) From the "Fire" single.
Kasabian - "Too Much Too Young" (The Specials cover) From the Radio One, Established 1967 compilation. (buy import)
Kasabian - "Cunny Grope Lane" A bonus track on the Japanese version of their third album, West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum.
Kasabian - "Black Whistler" From the West Ryder EP, which preceded the WRPLA album.

The discog:

Kasabian, 2004 (buy)
Empire, 2006 (buy)
West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, 2009 (buy) (buy deluxe)

On a completely unrelated note - here's a vid I recently happened across on the yew-tube. This is a live recording of the brilliant Melissa Ferrick's "Willing To Wait", which was the title track to her second album, way back in the mid-nineties. If you've not heard of her, give this a listen, then go buy the album.
