Kula Shaker redux

I really like this band's mix of pretty boy, post-psych, rocking pop. Less precious than their contemporaries, Oasis, they had (do?) a crush on all things Hindu (other, more psychedelic songs, are "Govinda," "Tattva,"and "Mystical Machine Gun"). Oasis just copied The Beatles best pop hooks; Kuka Shaker wants to recreate the spirit that impelled The Beatles to meditate with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. This clip is the more straight ahead "Great Hosannah."
