I remember learning about British India but that was a while ago when we were still the Raj, in the days of Kipling and Queen Victoria. When the sun never set on the British Empire. Things change.
This British India is an Aussie group. Pretty cool too. Check them out.
And if you are in Sneaky Pete's up in Edinburgh on Saturday night give 'em a cheer. You'll enjoy it.
I think this first song has made an allowance for inflation.

The four school friends emerged from the fertile underbelly of Melbourne’s independent music scene to take Australia by storm in July 2007 with their acclaimed debut album Guillotine. As the songs ‘Black & White Radio’, ‘Tie Up My Hands’ and ‘Run The Red Light’ became arm-raising, air-punching anthems at venues and festivals across the country, British India developed a hard-earned reputation for their explosive live shows. They took out the 2007 AIR Award for Best New Independent Artist.
Exactly one year later in July 2008 the boys released their second album Thieves. Thieves demonstrated the band’s growth, both as songwriters and musicians as heard in the brooding, foot-stomping singles ‘I Said I’m Sorry,’ ‘This Dance Is Loaded,’ ‘You Will Die And I Will Take Over’ and ‘God Is Dead (meet the kids)’, and earned the boys their first 2008 ARIA Award nomination.
Their latest album ‘Avalanche’ released in Australia in May 2010 received rave reviews nationally and again debuted in the ARIA Top 10. Jam-packed with brilliant pop melodies, high-octane rock & roll, and the lyrical genius of singer Declan Melia; Avalanche takes the garage pop which has characterized British India’s initial success to new heights and features two of their most popular songs to date ‘Vanilla’ and the title track’Avalanche’ [Bio]
