The final headliner for next year's Isle of Wight Festival was announced as Kasabian today.
Elton John opened his own pop-up shop in Covent Garden to sell his old outfits. Kylie Minogue's costumes were the subject of an exhibition at the V&A. Yet despite being the frontman for the band named "Best Act in the World Today" at this week's Q Awards, Kasabian's Tom Meighan chose to dispose of the contents of his wardrobe at his local branch of Oxfam, in Leicester. The singer recently made two trips to deposit more than 100 items at the charity shop, including an £800 Vivienne Westwood jacket, signed T-shirts and Leicester City football strips. Meighan wore many of the garments at gigs and festivals; they have, allegedly, been washed since. "He was quite interested in how much money we made," store manager Ahsan Sheikh told the Leicester Mercury. "I said I'd let him know." (Let us know, too!) Among the apparel from Meighan's collection available to buy online is a pair of black jeans, which staff have helpfully placed in the "Women's Clothing" section of the store's website. Hmm. I always thought they looked a bit tight.

The Stone Roses may have been the most overrated band ever, claims Fiona Sturges. So why are people getting excited about the re-release of their self-titled debut album?
The nominations for the Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize have been announced, with joint favourites Florence and The Machine's 'Lungs' and Kasabian's third LP 'West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum' jostling with ten other entries to be named the album of the year.
The lads from Leicester return with their third album and, as its title suggests, this is very much a concept album – in the words of Serge Pizzorno, the band's musical conductor and lead guitarist, it's "a soundtrack for an imaginary film".
After the patchy response duly bestowed upon the patchy Empire, Kasabian have wisely made a few changes for this much-improved follow-up.
