#491: Cornershop-Brimful Of Asha (Top 500 Modern Rock Songs Of All Time)

#491
(Top Modern Rock Songs Of All Time)
Song: "Brimful Of Asha"
Artist: Cornershop
Release Date: August, 1997
From the Album: When I Was Born For The 7th Time (1997)




Quick Take: Honoring Asha Bhosle, the great Indian film music singer (who, with over 12,000 songs, is also the most recorded artist on Earth), the boys in Cornershop managed to make the whole of Indo-British culture seem cool. In line with their strong anti-racist politics, the band seems to constantly project its ability to surf on top of the great sea of London culture, pulling elements from a variety of musical styles, as well as honoring the odd, old, kooky, and geeky elements all around them.
