Arctic Monkeys Make Kasabian Sick


The Arctic Monkeys' favourite karaoke songs make Kasabian guitarist Serge Pizzorno vomit.

The 'Crying Lightning' rockers often sing along to Craig David tracks in karaoke bars, and during one impromptu performance Serge had to rush to the toilet to be physically sick because it sounded so terrible.

Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner said: "It either goes one way or the other doesn't it, the Craig David songs. I think me and Matt Helders did a duet of Craig's 'Seven Days' and it actually made Serge from Kasabian sick. He actually threw up. He left to be sick."

But the stomach-churning incident didn't stop the band - which is comprised of Alex, drummer Matt, guitarist Jamie Cook and bassist Nick O'Malley - from grabbing the microphone again during a night out at the Joshua Tree Saloon bar, in California.

Matt - who along with his bandmates recorded their latest LP 'Humbug' at a nearby studio - said: "I sang Craig David on karaoke recently just to lighten the mood a bit. But it was a very dangerous move. It was near an army base and there weren't many people there fortunately, but it was the kind of place where 'Seven Days' worked. I didn't even look at the screen once, I knew all the words!"

Meanwhile, Matt has revealed he is a massive fan of Britney Spears.

He explained: "I went to see Britney Spears at The O2. It was great. I'd never been to anything like that before, it blew my mind. I went with music producer James Ford, we were in the front row and she was eyeing him up. There was this one bit where this big picture frame gets erected in front of us. We were thinking, 'Ooh, I wonder if she's going to come out of there!' She comes and stood on this picture frame and well winked at Ford! I were miffed."
