Peasants Pigs & AstronautsImport
'Peasants, Pigs & Astronauts' is the second album by the British indie and psychedelic rock band Kula Shaker.
Initial recording sessions for the album were produced by George Drakoulias and Rick Rubin. But eventually Drakoulias and Rubin were rejected by the band and Bob Ezrin was brought in to complete the album.
As a result of this, the production credits for the album's lead single, "Sound of Drums", name Drakoulias and Rubin as producers, while the rest of 'Peasants,Pigs & Astronauts' is produced by Ezrin. Like its predecessor 'K', the album continues the band's hybrid of 1960s-style psychedelic rock, groovy indie pop, and Indian instrumentation, albeit with a more progressive rock slant than on their previous release.
Musically, many of the songs make use of Beatles-influenced psychedelic effects, swirling guitars, and Indian chants.

KIf ever there was a group in the Britpop movement that brought spirituality to the table, Kula Shaker did it in spades, and magnificently at that.
After a trip to India lead singer and front man Crispian Mills became interested in Indian music, culture and tradition and decided to use instruments like the sitar, tamboura and tabla and write songs in the ancient and sacred Hindu language.
The combination with the psychedelic swirling guitars and a Beatles-esque vibe ensured a string of top-ten hits, including Tattva, Govinda, Hey Dude, and their cover of the Deep Purple classic Hush.
'K' climbed to the top of the British album charts, went double platinum and won Kula Shaker the 1997 BRIT award for Best Breakthrough Act.1. Hey Dude (2011 - Remaster)

The Fat Of The LandFew albums were as eagerly anticipated as The Fat of the Land, the Prodigy's long-awaited follow-up to Music for the Jilted Generation. The Fat of the Land was touted as the album that would bring electronica/techno to a wide American audience; and indeed it went on to sell 2.8 million copies in the US. The Fat of the Land delivers exactly what anyone would expect: intense hip-hop-derived rhythms, imaginatively reconstructed samples, and meaningless shouted lyrics from Keith Flint and Maxim. Half of the album does sound quite similar to "Firestarter," especially when Flint is singing. Still, Liam Howlett is an inventive producer, and he can make songs like "Smack My Bitch Up" and "Serial Thrilla" kick with a visceral power, but he is at his best on the funky hip-hop of "Diesel Power" (which is driven by an excellent Kool Keith rap) and "Funky Shit," as wellas the mind-bending neo-psychedelia of "Narayan" (featuring guest vocals by Crispian Mills of Kula Shaker) and the bloodcurdling cover of L7's "Fuel My Fire," which features vocals by Republica's Saffron. All those guest vocalists mean something -- Howlett is at his best when he's writing for himself or others."Firestarter" and all of its rewrites capture the fire of the Prodigyat their peak, and the remaining songs have imagination that give the album weight. The Fat of the Land is damn good.1. Smack My Bitch Up
