moksha recs : the shamen

moksha recordings has been involved with the shamen since the early 1980s, releasing their first album drop in 1987 and their last, uv in 1998.

the shamen underwent a series of startling metamorphoses from their inception in scotland in the early 1980s as sixties influenced four-piece indie-rockers (drop) to politically charged guitar-funkateers (1989’s in gorbachev we trust) to club-friendly, space-age house-pop stars (uv) in the late 1990s.
