Retro Saturday: The Shamen

It's going to be an early night for me tonight (for boring reasons I won't go into here) so let's kick off tonight's journey back in time to the early 1990s. The Shamen had been around for a while as a rock/dance influenced act but it wasn't until their 'naughty, naughty, very naughty' "Ebeneezer Goode" hit no.1 in 1992 that they really achieved that big chart success as one of the biggest rave acts of that period. I was thinking the other day about how much I really liked them at that time and so tonight I've posted the links to some of their biggest hits:

I only recently realised how great 'LSI' is after seeing the video. Choon! My favourites are 'Phorever People' and 'Destination Eschaton'

Great to see you back here again - I'm still having serious Pop Unlimited withdrawal symptoms.

Yeah I'd forgotten just how good those tracks were till I heard them again last night and have played them again today.

Top choons indeed.
