Colin Angus - The Shamen





Biography


The Shamen Band were formed in 1986 by Colin Angus who comes from Cults in Aberdeen. He brought together members Peter Stephenson, Keith and Derek McKenzie. The band name came from Colin's interest in the mystical world of Shamanism.

The Shamen started as a Dark Indie Band then became known as a Psychedelic group and then moved into Acid House in 1988. In the 1990s they ventured into the Techno scene. The band then moved into the Hip Hop scene which caused Derek to leave the group. He was replaced by Will Sinott. The group moved into the Rave scene.

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.



Will Sinott died during a drowning accident on the 23rd of May 1990, just off the coast of Gomera in the Spanish Canary Islands, whilst the band was shooting a promotional video.

Richard West, known as MR.C and singer Jhelisa Anderson joined the band.

The Shamen stopped performing and recording in 1998.

MR.C left to run his London clubs The End and DJ's around the World.

Colin Angus continued to research his interests in the mystic and has travelled the World visiting temples and ruins.
