16. Kula Shaker

Where to start? Everyone remembers Kula Shaker, everyone loved Kula Shaker, everyone knew how good Kula Shaker were, everyone wishes that they'd seen Kula Shaker live on the K tour, everyone knows that Kula Shaker were the most honest band in British rock at the time, everyone knows it's the Dialy Mail's fault for getting on Crispian's back when he said that for millions of Hindus the swastika is a symbol of peace.
Another reason for loving them is how much they sound like the Doors (musically) in places - cf Sound of Drums/Govinda intro for example
i bet not many of you know that Kula Shaker are reforming (minus Jay Darlington, keyboard bearded longhaired foot who tinkled the casio for Oasis a few times post-Kula) and set to play shows soon, non confirmed yet. who's up for seeing them?
"Gotta let it go because I got my stash
And I love my hash, yeah got my stash
Think I'll grow myself a big ol' hairy moustache"

ah george, what an inspired feat of memory. i just listened to 'shower your love' - a track of my formative years. the " 'cos iiiii, i'm not even half the way theeeere" bit is sweet as a nut. even with the unecessary wailing instruments layered over the top.

tasty
