Clean Bandit talks Kasabian insults, saying maybe it was jealousy. They are a a British electronic group, which consists of members Jack Patterson, Luke Patterson, Grace Chatto, and Milan Neil Amin-Smith and what Serge Pizzorno had supposedly said is that was an outrage that the group are nominated for Brit Awards. They are known for their hit single “Mozart’s House” and Rather Be” and they responded back with their comments made by Serge Pizzorno of Kasabian in which he cast doubt over their songwriting credibility.
Pizzorno recently made it clear that he was unhappy with the fact that Kasabian picked up no nominations for this year’s Brit Awards. Clean Bandit, however, have – a fact the guitarist claimed was an “outrage” as the group behind the hit single ‘Rather Be’ “don’t even write their own tunes.”
Last week, following the Brit award news Pizzorno claimed that there is a “conspiracy” to “shut rock’n'roll out.”
Grace Chatto, cello player of the group, gives her response to Pizzorno claryifying that they do write their own material
. “It’s so weird and odd,” she told The Mirror in response to the comments. “We do write our own music. It’s just so funny that he would say that. Maybe he just assumed that because we’ve had this hit with ‘Rather Be’ it’s the sort of pop that has millions of writers behind. But we didn’t. I think it was about us being nominated in the best band category. It was a surprise for us – maybe it wasn’t a nice surprise for them.”
Chatto went on to attribute Pizzorno’s comments to envy.
“Maybe it’s jealousy. I don’t really care. I don’t know a lot of Kasabian’s music. I am into rock music but I don’t know their stuff.”
Also earlier this week Noel Gallagher had backed Kasabian in their dispute with the Brits, going as far as describing the ceremony as being “rigged”.
