Kasabian 'Best British Group' as Oasis bow out
The band have not been the music media darlings but constant touring and anthemic songs have seen their fan base grow and grow. All in the music industry recognise the hard work and talent that's gone in to reaching the status of 'Best British Band' and the BRITs Award audience went wild at Kasabian's live performance of their hit 'Fire'.
In their hometown of Leicester they are true heroes with Fire being played every time that soccer team Leicester City FC score a goal and that was five times last Saturday as the Foxes put five goals past Scunthorpe United.
The demise of Oasis has left a vacancy at the top of British rock music. Many bands are striving to fill it, but in the past year Kasabian have emerged as the most likely contenders for their Manchester rivals' crown.
