ananda shankar / savages Jumpin' Jack Flash / Born to Be Wild (7", £5.95)
LIMITED EDITION 7". 2 TRACKS TAKEN FROM DISHOOM SLIP DISC COMPILATION. From rocking Bombay to swinging London: what a terrific trip! In the 60s, young Indians and young Brits struck up an unlikely relationship that resulted in some truly amazing music. For this generation, culture was currency. Hip young Indians rocked up in London. ‘Beat’ bands in Bombay belted out versions of the latest rock’n’roll hits. Indian musicians dreamt of making it big in the West, while British bands were eager to explore mystic, exotic India. Despite their very different upbringings, they revelled in their opposing cultures. Slip Disc is the sound of this cross-continental youth revolution and a long-distance love affair.
