Without warning, British India explode on stage like unattended luggage, sending shards of fiery rock through the unsuspecting audience. Drew Clarke. (The Brag).

The fervour of youth, distilled into rock. Jaymz Clement (Beat)

Since their dramatic debut in Melbourne in 2004 British India has been a name on people’s lips.
Usually the bottom lip as people’s jaws dropped when watching their live performance.
After a series of high profile supports (Gomez, The Music) very early on, the band set about the task of capturing their high voltage energy in a studio.

Their debut single “Outside 109�, a limited edition vinyl only release, was on air one hour after being taken in to JJJ. The song received airplay around the country from a variety of stations and was sold through a network of Australian alternative and tastemaker stores which will guarantee its status as a bona fide rock collectible.

Wheels started turning and the offer came to work with legendary songwriter and producer Harry Vanda (Easybeats, AC/DC, Rose Tattoo). So just a year from finishing school and playing their first gigs and they found themselves in Flashpoint studio, playing Harry Vanda’s guitars, meeting music business legends and soaking up history.

The resulting EP “We Are The Counter Culture� has garnered strong reviews and strong airplay.

The band played every major summer festival (Big Day Out, Homebake, Meredith Music Festival, Pyramid Festival) and attracted many curious music fans. The response from the converted fans has set more tongues wagging.

To quote Kathy McCabe from the Daily Telegraph, “Hotter than vindaloo�.

The band have finished recording their debut album with Harry Vanda, a process that took only three weeks. Everybody was rapt that the band’s incandescent live flame has been transferred to tape.

The band continues to write new material and a new track Run The Red Light was recorded after the album was finished and looks like being added to the record.

Word has started to filter out and record company interest is slowly starting to gather pace.

Their tour with The Psychedelic Furs and Ratcat has seen the band’s live performance move to another level.
