Kasabian discover a social conscience

It's not quite going out canvassing for Sian Berry, but it turns out that it's not all beer and Oasis bootlegs for Kasabian: They're passionately opposed to the battering of defenceless seals. Tom says so:

"I think it's just common sense really. I mean, of course I don't think it's OK to smash a baby seal's skull. I don't wear fur; it's such an ugly thing to do".

No word yet on if this new rejection of all-things ugly is going to impact on the band's music, or use of a Manson-connected name for a pop group, but it's early days.
