Commemorative 20th Anniversary Reissue with Extensive Sleeve Note Booklet!
Following the release of their latest album K 2.0 earlier in 2016, Kula Shaker have announced a 20th Anniversary Edition of their debut album K for release on BMG. This celebratory vinyl edition of K features an extensive sleeve note booklet recalling the story of the band's conception and the album's creation.
With a blend of 60s rocking, Britpop and Indian mysticism, K was born from the influences of George Harrison, The Grateful Dead, The Kinks, Deep Purple and the Doors. The album combined an onslaught of volume, overdriven guitars, and catchy melodies resulting in an album that remains an excellent blast of colorful neo-psychedelia. It produced four classic hit singles including "Grateful When You're Dead," "Tattva," "Hey Dude" and "Govinda" and became the fastest selling British debut album of 1996. K hit the No. 1 spot upon release and still features in Q Magazine's ‘100 Greatest Albums of All Time' list.
This release is a celebration of a stunning debut and reminds us of a great British band who, on their reformation have continued to excite and inspire fans all over the world. Far from gazing at the past, their confidence and continued success means they can commemorate this fantastic part of their history whilst forging ahead with new and innovative music and plans.
