Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Kula Shaker: Crispian Mills (vocals, guitar); Jay Darlington (organ); Alonza Bevan (bass); Paul Winterhart (drums).
  • Japanese release includes a hidden, untitled extra song.
  • After creating a stir with their debut album K, Kula Shaker follows up with a purposeful upping of the ante on PEASANTS. Like its predecessor, the album brashly melds the cinematic, spacy Britrock sweep of Spiritualized with Middle Eastern melodic touches (the mid-period Beatles are strongly evoked, especially on the flower power epic "Shower Your Love") and the occasional loop-oriented trip-hop touch. The strongest emotional connection for Kula Shaker seems to be with the '60s--heavy organ, choral vocals, Yardbirdsy guitar and harp, it seems like the quartet has learned every trick in the post-'65 rock & roll book and filtered through a harder-edged '90s Britpop orientation. PEASANTS is an ambitious, broad-ranging album, drunk on the driftwood of pop culture and creative enough to make something new of it.
Professional Reviews
Q (3/99, p.91) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...If the demeanor of their second album suggests that a certain tension stiffened their songwriting so that the outcome is interesting rather than, like [debut album] K, captivating, it may well be that its energetic imagination and originality will, nonetheless, keep them moving forward..."

CMJ (4/26/99, p.28) - "...sounds an awful lot like a time-warped 1970-spawned offspring of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR and NUGGETS, weaned on liberal amounts of Eastern mysticism and ethnic music....George Harrison would be proud."
