VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Kula Shaker – ‘Hush’
March 10, 2017
It’s just over 20 years since neo-psychedelicists Kula Shaker stormed the Britpop scene with an almost indecent ease.
Their debut album, ‘K’, released in 1996, become fastest selling debut of that year and went on to sell a staggering 850,000 copies in the UK alone – an achievement that earned them platinum status.
In February 1997, the band nabbed the Best British Breakthrough gong at the Brit Awards and in the same month released ‘Hush’, their biggest hit.
Reaching number two in the UK singles chart, this stand alone single – previously covered by Billy Joe Royal and Deep Purple – also cracked the US after it was used on the soundtrack for ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’.
And it still sounds damned good!
