Kula Shaker celebrates the 20th anniversary of 'K' - UK tour

Kula Shaker

2016 marks 20 years since Kula Shaker exploded into the UK Britpop scene with their million selling debut album K. Their brand of rock with an esoteric mix of psychedelic riffs and ideas, full of Eastern mysticism and full-tilt performances made them the most unique (often termed eccentric) of the Brit Pop bands in the Nineties.

So far this year has seen the band back performing and every review of their live shows today, still revere their energy and intense live performances as witnessed at the Roundhouse earlier this year and subsequent dates. “Govinda” sung entirely in Sanskrit and the only Sanskrit top 10 UK single ever, is still chanted by the crowds that attend the shows...

Levellers announce November & December UK Tour 2016

Levellers

Brighton folk punk band Levellers will play their classic album in full plus other hits on a mammoth UK tour supported by Ferocious Dog to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of their second full-length, and now classic, album.

 

Their platinum-selling 1991 album Levelling The Land features the hit singles One Way, 15 Years and Far From Home plus The Game, Liberty Song, Sell Out, Another Man’s Cause, Riverflow, Boatman and the incendiary Battle Of The Beanfield.

During the summer of 1991 Levelling The Land redefined the UK’s musical landscape. Levellers provided the soundtrack for a society fed up with the twin evils of Thatcherite politics, and the post-80’s, pre-grunge musical wasteland.

Emerging victorious through the ups and downs of label deals, the spat...
