Kasabian: You're in Love with a Pyscho

by Jason Stone

Kasabian: “You're in Love with a Pyscho” - 4 mins 29s

There's an awful lot of fun going on in this promo for Kasabian. Noel Fielding and Stephen Graham guest as the alter egos of two band members in a film which references some familiar films including 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' and a piece of Marx Brothers brilliance as well as a coy nod to Kasabian's 2009 album 'West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum'.

Despite its dark references to life in a mental institution, it maintains a sure-footed joy - never more so than when director WIZ gets his minstrels to re-enact the mirror scene from 'Duck Soup'.

The promo is one of those rare beasts which manages to perfectly enhance the song it supports.
