Kasabian’s cheif wizard has been working on the second series of The Mighty Boosh’s Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy for E4.
Under the guise of Loose Tapestries, the duo have also been pulling in a few showbiz favours with Idris Elba ( Mandella, Luther) offering up his rapping skills on a song. The pair are very excited about the new project and have discussed the possibility of even touring forests around the country in a recent interview. “We’ve promised each other that one day we’ll do the most amazing eight or nine shows in forests or something. I can imagine it being like Wu-Tang Clan but with a weird British edge. What’s so amazing about Loose Tapestries is that it can be absolutely anything. On this new record there’s an all-out pure disco tune, which I could never get away with usually. It’s got the most incredible line in it that goes, ‘Cocks in all directions / From flaccid to erections.’ I don’t think it gets better than that.”
Previously Fielding had a brief outing with rock n roll when The Mighty Boosh hosted their own festival back in 2008. The Charlatans, Gary Numan and Jarvis Cocker were all on the line up for the one-off event.
The second series of Luxury Comedy begins Thursday July 31st.
