The Shamen

Biography

As one of the leading electronic groups of the late 1980s, the Shamen were best known for their acid house anthems including "Move Any Mountain," "Pro>Gen," and "Ebeneezer Goode." Founded in Scotland by Colin Angus, the band took its name from Angus' interests in the mystical world of shamanism. Technology wizard Will Sin joined the group and in 1988, the Shamen moved to London, where they met their future lead singer, DJ Mr. C. Mixing Mr. C's rap skills with rock guitar riffs, funky beats, melodic pop and a psychedelic vibe, the band became one of the major acts of the early '90s rave culture, releasing several U.K. chart-topping albums. They were also one of the first electronic dance bands to introduce live music to clubbers. Mr. C went on to open a world-famous nightclub, The End, in London.
