Product description

Kula Shaker - K - Cd

Amazon.co.uk

Kula Shaker take their name from a 9th-century Indian King, and their debut album, K further reveals their obsession with Eastern mysticism: the band sing in Sanskrit on "Tattva" and "Govinda" is based on an ancient Indian chant. On the strength of these and other hit singles, the band were voted Best Newcomers at the 1996 BRIT Awards and K went into the album charts at Number One--the fastest selling debut since Oasis' Definitely Maybe. A mixture of classic rock and 60's psychedelia, Kula Shaker were treated with critical derision that seemed to counteract their chart success. But the blend of East and West obviously struck a chord with the public, making this an interesting and exciting debut. --Carina Trimingham

Kula Shaker's 1996 released debut album is a really cool one, and their best out of the three. I have always enjoyed this psychedelic rock band's unique sound, which is a combination of then fashionable Britpop/rock, and Italian flavoured music. Although their sound is original, there are strong similarities to The Beatles, Jimmy Hendrix, early Deep Purple and Pink Floyd.

Whenever I listen to 'K', its always a great experience, like going on a journey, and best played in it's entirety. In my opinion, apart from few exceptions, it contains most of the band's best songs, including the hits 'Govinda', which is perhaps the most psychedelic track on here, the brilliant 'Tattva', and 'Hey Dude', which has a killer-riff. The cool rocker 'Knight On The Town', and the simple yet beautiful Beatles-like 'Start All Over' weren't singles, but if they had been I imagine they would have gone onto become big hits also.

Great songs, strong melodies, and impressive instrumental skills, I highly recommend this awesome psychedelic experience in great music. 5 stars!

This maybe the best album from the 1990's certainly is my favourite, a complete masterpiece that will stand the test of time. I saw them live at Wolverhampton in the late 1990's and mills and co were brilliant. I saw this CD in a music shop last week for 49 pence what a steal for a classic masterpiece.

One morning in 1996 my radio alarm woke me up with a blasting classical guitar riff. I just could hear the words ‘grateful when you’re …’ played by the Dutch 3fm station. In the following weeks I did not hear the song or saw the clip on one of the TV Music channels. Suddenly there was a song with mysterious India influence. I have founded the band: Kula Shaker.

“K” is one of those strongest debut a rock band can have. In 1995 and 1996 British rock music provided an enormous fresh creative breeze in the world of music. Some of the 1996 albums stand like a rock in a bay. “K” is one of those. Some have described “K” as the LSD-driven psychedelic sitar-rock. Then, that is not totally true. It is not LSD driven, it is not a hippy album, it is not psychedelic, it is not sitar. It is just a combination of different styles smoothly put together.

The sitar is there, but it’s not a sitar album. The melloton is there, but it is not a mellotron record. It is still very refreshing to hear the song ‘Govinda’ and ‘Tattva’ starting in slow, mediation-style, to be pulled and mixed into faster rock song. The combination gives “K” the rocking mysterious touch. ‘Hey Dude’, is the outright fast swing-a-long shoutalong rocker. ‘Temple of Everlasting Light’ is the even more Indian-influenced style, but still rockmusic: acoustic guitar with Indian rhythms but heavier sound. ‘Grateful when you’re dead’, I consider it a nod of the head to Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac ‘Oh well’. Blasting powerful guitar rock in the first part of the song suddenly changed into beautiful more mellow second part.

Not before have I heard or will you hear such a creative mix of traditional rock music with heavy influence from India. It’s a mix of late 60’s rock, Indian themed pop, meditation style influence and straightforward Indierock. Unheard in 1996. At the time considered retro-tastic. Now I consider “K” as classic britrock.

A mixture of classic rock & 60's psychedelia, an obsession with Eastern mysticism, and complete boredom with grunge and indie made this the fastest selling debut since Oasis' Definitely Maybe. Despite this Kula Shaker manage to stamp their own identity over the whole thing and actually succeed in building something spiritual and sensual. Hey Dude opens the album and is a full on rocker. Knight On The Town continues that theme and then Temple Of Everlasting Light acts as a bridge to the sweet spot of the album. Govinda is based around a chant and hypnotises nicely. Tattva is similar but more epic. Weak pun aside Grateful When You're Dead / Jerry Was There acknowledges their roots with appropriate gravitas. Out of time and still a classic.

This album truly is excellent, melding many different influences in such a seamless way producing an extraordinary album full of unique moments and showcasing very special talent. Hollow Man is the best track, and there isn't a weak track to be seen. All this for a debut, and listening to this makes you rue the bad second album and subsequent implosion of this wonderful band
