Kula Shaker are an English psychedelic rock band. Led by frontman Crispian Mills, the band came to prominence during the Post-Britpop era of the late 1990s. The band enjoyed commercial success in the UK between 1996 and 1999, notching up a number of Top 10 hits on the UK Singles Chart, including "Tattva", "Hey Dude", "Govinda", "Hush", and "Sound of Drums". The band's debut album, K, reached No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart.

Kula Shaker may play well - they have a powerful rush that makes you temporarily forget how classicist their music actually is - but they still have trouble coming up with hooks. About half the record ("Hey Dude," "Tattva," "Govinda," "Grateful When You're Dead") has strong melodies, while the rest just rides by on the band's instrumental skills. Consequently, much of K doesn't stick around once the record is finished, but the singles remain excellent blasts of colorful neo-psychedelia.

K is the debut album by Kula Shaker, released on 16 September 1996. When it was released, it became the fastest selling debut album in Britain since Elastica's debut the previous year. The album reached the position in the UK charts, however in America it stalled at in the Billboard charts. The Grateful Dead's psychedelic rock style is an influence on Kula Shaker's first and second albums.

Kula Shaker's music is original and out of this world. There album "K" is a must have, I was really shocked when it arrived and it came with a purple vinyl 45 rpm cover of Deep Purple's Hush. They did an incredible job reproducing a great original sound.
