Casino Empire (Indie Rock)

I’ve had my eye on this band from Leicester, England for a couple of years now. What first attracted me to them is their youth. Seeing young chaps keeping the flow of rock alive always tends to fill my soul with a little cheer. For those that are seeking edgy groundbreaking sounds this band may disappoint. They don’t hide the fact that they are influenced by 90’s Brit Pop and 80’s synth so take that into consideration when listening critically. Fans of Artic Monkeys and Kasabian may notice heavy influence with Casino Empire. I like listening to them well enough to share. Here is a link to a biography posted on the band a couple of years ago.(Link)

“We have to create culture, don’t watch TV, don’t read magazines, don’t even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you’re worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you’re giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told ‘no’, we’re unimportant, we’re peripheral. ‘Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.’ And then you’re a player, you don’t want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that’s being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.”
― Terence McKenna
