The Revenge of King Kula Shaker

King Kula Shaker aka Kulahsekhara was a 9th century Indian emperor and one of the Alvars, a prominent group of Vaishnava saints. It is also the name of a swirling, guitar-heavy sounding rock group who become one of the most popular British bands of the post-Britpop era. They managed to revive late-'60s psychedilia infusing it with large doses of Krishna Consciousness (KC), essentially Indian spirituality and mysticism, setting them a bar above the rest of world bands and carving a new niche.
