In September 1996, Kula Shaker released the fastest selling British debut album of it’s time. ‘K‘ rocketed to the top of the charts going double platinum in the UK and eventually going onto sell over a million copies worldwide. It received universally positive reviews, songs like ‘Hey Dude‘ , ‘Tattva‘ and ‘Govinda‘ received regular rotation on TV and radio, the album made end of year top album lists helping propel the band to the dizzy heights of pop stardom. ‘K‘ is still entering top album lists even making it into this year’s Q Magazine Top Albums Of All Time.
In celebration of it’s 15th Anniversary, you can now once again relive the magic of this magnificent album in this digitally remastered 3-CD/DVD package.

Once upon a time, long, long, ago… I said I was going to make a movie. Very happy to finally be filming ‘A Fantastic Fear of Everything’ with such an amazing cast (Simon Pegg, Clair Higgins, Amara Karan, Paul Freeman, and Sheridan Smith), shooting at Shepperton studios. Will know film website shortly and promise to send some pictures and news soon x

Hello folks. Its been a little while since my last update and I hope all is well. Aside from battling through the wind and rain that this summer has kindly provided, I’ve been working on a solo album. A couple of years ago a good friend of mine left the country to pursue his career in the New World. Amongst the other detritus he decided to leave me with was his strat. I didn’t know how to play it of course, but ironically not being able to play seems to be a great facilitator for song writing. I started recording the album for real around Christmas time. The original plan was to get my friends to play on it, but by the time I’d put the demo guitars down, and started on drums and keys it wasn’t a big leap to push myself a bit and do everything else. I’ve always been a bit of a multi-instrumentalist (or jack-of-all-trades) and it was good to explore some of the sounds and instruments at my disposal. Playing everything yourself does however, take quite a looooong time. Completion is creeping up on me like a sunny day and I shall play you some sounds soon. In other news I’ve been listening to Tumbleweed, recording a bit of hammond for Goldray, hanging out with Crispian on his film set and playing drums in a new project called Swallowing The Seas. I hate describing music with words so I won’t, but watch this space. There’ll be an EP soon.

As you might have heard I’ve been working on a new project called “Tumbleweed” with Audrey Evans (singer in “The Mediaeval Baebes” and female voice on “Pilgrim’s Progress”). Now things out here in the forest’s of southern Belgium move a little slower than in the rest of the world so we wanted to give you something to listen to during the inevitable wait for an album.
A couple of months ago Belgian radio station Classic 21 asked us to record a Bob Marley cover for a program they were putting together marking the 30th anniversary of his death. We trawled through his back catalogue and found ourselves drawn to the earlier pre reggae ska and Jamaican soul tracks of the “Wailing Wailers”. We chose “Sinnerman” as we liked the African American spiritual vibe plus we knew the Les Baxter version which is also pretty cool.
We put the track together here in Lompret with the help of Christian Gerard who played cello on “Pilgrims Progress” and Belgian drummer Marc Descamp. The 2nd track is called Motherless Child which is a song Audrey wanted to cover for the album. It’s another spiritual which has a message in keeping with that of Bob.
The video clip is just something we cut together from an old 30’s cartoon called “Bimbo’s Initiation”, it’s just a bit of fun but we wanted a way for people to hear the track.
Anyway the album is turning out to be a whole different thing but until then I hope you enjoy this.
Thanks for all your support and we’ll try to keep you posted with news from the Belgian front.
Lots of Love
