Kasabian's guitarist Serge Pizzorno believes it will be ''a victory for the squares'' if Ed Sheeran wins a BRIT Award and revealed he's glad the band aren't nominated for Best British Group at the ceremony alongside pop artists such as Clean Bandit and One Direction.
The 'Days Are Forgotten' hitmakers - who have not been nominated for a BRIT Award themselves at this year's ceremony - want more ''danger'' and ''fantasy' in the music industry.
The band's guitarist Serge Pizzorno said: ''It's a good time for squares. We're going through a period where the squares are in charge. There's no surrealists, there's no fantasy in music.
''The squares are having their day. But I can forsee it coming to an end. There's only so long people will take it before they get bored. There's no danger any more. People aren't offering anything exciting. The squares are winning.''
In fact, the 34-year-old musician is glad his band has been snubbed for the Best British Group award because he wouldn't want them to be in the category alongside pop artists.
''There's way more politics behind this than people realise.
''There's some strange names in there. I hope some of those people enjoy their night because it's the only time they'll be there.''
