About The S.L.P.
After Sergio Pizzorno, aka The S.L.P., finished touring behind 2017’s For Crying Out Loud – Kasabian’s fifth No.1 album in a row – he liked the idea of doing a solo record.
Famed not only as Kasabian’s chief songwriter, he's a man dedicated to pushing esoteric influences – from MF Doom to Bulgarian psychedelia to avant-garde electronica – into the sonic framework of a mainstream, stadium-filling rock band. A solo album would be a chance for Pizzorno to let his freak flag fly, unencumbered by the need to make music fit to headline festivals and huge gigs.
Thus, his self-titled album The S.L.P. isn’t one that anyone could anticipate. It's an intriguing, unprecedented split between filmic instrumentals – audibly partly inspired by Roy Budd’s iconic soundtrack to the 1970 British gangster flick Get Carter – and richly melodic songs influenced by hip hop and grime. Elsewhere, the album bounces from the distorted chaos to dubbed-out psych-funk-new wave to piano ballads.
Serge will bring his new S.L.P project to life when he hits the road later this year. He's doing a UK tour that kicks off in Glasgow in early September 2019, before heading to Manchester, Birmingham and London for two shows at EartH in Hackney.
