Pullin’ ‘Tubes: Back to Soul School

It’s seems hard to believe that it’s been thirteen years since Cornershop released their critically acclaimed sophomore effort When I Was Born For The 7th Time that showcased the band’s mix of  heavily influenced Beatles psychedelic Brit-Pop, that they fused with traditional Indian instruments and dance music. The album, which was somewhat surprisingly declared Spin’s Album Of The Year in 1997, featured their best known song – Brimful Of Asha – the quirky ode to Bollywood playback singer Asha Bhosle, which peaked at #16 on the Billboards charts and hit #1 in UK courtesy of Fatboy Slim’s remix and was featured everywhere from Friends to The Real World.

While it looked like the band was primed for breakout success, it took them nearly five years to release their follow up. Earlier this year the UK-based act quietly released their fifth studio album Judy Sucks A Lemon For Breakfast, their first since 2002, returning with another record full of sunny throwback British Invasion rock, mixed with sitars, eclectic samples and sound collages. Let’s check out the animated video for Soul School…

Cornershop has a handful of festival and headlining dates scattered throughout the UK including appearances at Bestival & The Great Escape.
