I was recently chatting with a friend who was lamenting the lack of a new Indian band in the UK. “I’m sick of listening to old Indian bands,” she stated. “The new ones suck.” What she meant to say was that she didn’t listen to all the crap that Indian culture churned out, and she was looking for something a bit different.
I agree completely. For many years I have been listening to Indian music. I’ve even bought CDs. But I always get bored and wish for a change. When I found shiv kumar batalvi, I immediately agreed to give him money to start making music. As I was driving to the office to pick up my laptop, I thought, “How refreshing. There’s a band in the UK who are listening to the same music I’m making.
Shiv Kumar Batalvi, the self-proclaimed “man who’s the only Indian in London,” is a British musician from the city of Birmingham. In 2006, he released his first album, which was an instant hit in Asia, Europe, and the US. The following year, he released his second album, called “Inna.” It sold more than 100,000 copies.
I can see why the title is so offensive to some, but why do you even mention this? I don’t know why it’s so offensive to people in the UK, but it’s a way of telling people that the people in the UK have nothing to do with anything else. I was very worried about the album, because it was called The Last Day, and I’d been listening to it for years.
I first heard shiv kumar in 2007, when he was playing with his band, the band-name-spamming-punk-band. That was when he was in the UK, and I was in the US, and the album was called Inna, which is a pun on the word inna, which means “insignificant”. And I just went, oh, shit, that’s the name of the album.
The album is a collection of songs from his band, with cover versions of songs by bands like Blink 182 and Green Day. It was released in 2006 and is in the UK on a limited edition of 300 copies.
I had heard of the band, but not their album. While I was in India, I found a copy of the album, and was very excited to give it a spin. There were so many songs to listen to. All of them are great. They have something for everyone, from the poppy, punk-influenced songs to the more melodic and blues-rock-influenced ones.
The album is a great, fun, and poppy record, full of great songs and a great band. I’m a big fan of this band, and this album is well worth it.
The album is available for free, and you can find it on their website, but they do ask that you pledge support for their cause. There are links inside the album and a Facebook page you can also go to, as well as a website that will let you donate. This album, and their music in general, have a lot of positive messages about the violence of internet culture.
Shiv Kumar is a Sikh man from Punjab, and his music is the most violent of all of our songs. He also makes a lot of videos, some of which have been uploaded to YouTube, as well as having his own website where he is currently touring.
