Colin Angus - The Shamen


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.
