ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes


The Hindi Guns are a Portland band whose self-titled debut album was produced by Simon Widdowson (The Decemberists).

The Portland Mercury called the Hindi Guns sound "straight-up road music, pure and simple" (Portland Mercury 12/03).

While the album was being readied, Hindi Guns released two 7"s. "I Don't Wanna Drink Mercury" came out in September '03 and received multiple plays on the late great John Peel's BBC Radio 1 show (as eventually did a full five tracks from the full-length CD!).

A cool, gothic video for "Mercury", filmed in the skeleton-filled catacombs beneath the streets of Paris, can be found at the band's website, thehindiguns.com

See why David Fricke, senior editor of Rolling Stone Magazine called the Hindi Guns "One of my favorite new bands of 2004."

The Hindi Guns: 2004's best band
The Hindi Guns are surely going to be a key player in modern music for the century. There self titled release is a modern masterpeice. Blending jazz-like elememts with a rock backbone, and vocals that (in my opinion) cannot be matched. Great things are to come from The Hindi Guns, anyone looking for a new sound to systematically dismember the mainstream, buy thier album. 5 STARS, I LOVE IT!!!!

very worthwhile effort - following their own sound
I liked all the songs; the whole album is solid with its own groove throughout. This band is making their own sound -there are a number of musical influences present - kind of a cool indie feeling that is infectious. Good vocals also. If you like an independent sound that you really can't categorize, get this.
