The Shamen[edit]

The Shamen were an apparently influential part of late eighties and early nineties rave music. Their hits to date include 'Eezer Goode', 'Move Any Mountain' and 'L.S.D.'

History[edit]

The Shamen formed in the mid-eighties as a folk group called Love Again Or, a name which made no sense at all and so only 6.8 people ever bothered to watch them live in their local pub. At the time they covered such hits as 'Pump Up the Jam' by Technotronic and'I Can See Clearly Now' by Johnny Cash. The band consisted of Colin Angus, Richard West and Will Sinnott, but after hearing 'Theme From S'Express' by S'Express became passionate about dance and rave music, so created their own tracks to play at children's birthday party discos. The parents loved the songs so much, record label One Little Indie allowed them into thestudio and record those oh too well known tunes. All of the Shamen's tunes were crap, however, and so were all remixed by the BateMasturs before being released.

Singles[edit]

The first Shamen album, released in 1987, featured the single 'Progen', which was released in 1989. It made it at number 159 in the chart, but, determined they could do better, The Shamen rereleased it another ninety times over the next 3 years. Finally, under the title of 'Move Any Mountain (Progen '91), the song reached number 4, but only due to the fact that band member Will Sinnott drowned himself because he couldn't stand the tune any more. Never the less, it gave the Shamen the push they needed to become famous and so many more singles followed, such as 'L.S.D', 'Comin and 'Eezer Goode', which slammed straight into number 1 due to publicity that it was the only Shamen song not to be about drugs. The album 'Bossy Drum' was very popular, making it platinum several times don't you know. Anyway, the single releases are as follows;

The Demise of The Shamen[edit]

After releasing one hundred singles, The Shamen called it a day in 1996. However, they forgot to tear up their recording contract and so two years after they broke up, used the last week of their contract to create one final album called 'FU". If you take the first letter of each track on the album, it will spell 'Fuck Roland', as Angus and West loathed Roland Rat emmensely. And quite right too.
