Before the days of Worlwide tours, platinum albums and festival headline slots, Kasabian were a proper gang, living together in one room of a remote old farmhouse surrounded by records – Neu, The Who, Super Furries, Blackalicious, DJ Shadow, Primals, Beatles, Boards Of Canada – Playstations, and general madness. Here they organised infamous gigs & parties… Kasabian’s eponymous debut album was a multi-layered blend of full-on rock’n’roll, dark electronics, widescreen atmospherics, hard hip-hop beats, acid house euphoria, and terrace chant catchiness.
Kasabian first came to Miloco in January 2003 when they worked in The Square. They were recording tracks with producer Garret Lee. In March 2004 they were mixing tracks for their new album with engineer Simon ‘Barny’ Barnicott. For this they used The Engine Room.
