A nineties indie band looked almost unrecognisable, 25 years after releasing their hit song Brimful of Asha.
When the single was first released in 1997, it only reached number 60 on the UK Singles Chart.
But when legendary DJ Fatboy Slim remixed the song the following year it took off and became iconic.
The track was even played on a 1998 episode of Friends, The One With The Fake Party.
But can you guess who it is?
Guess who: A nineties indie band looked almost unrecognisable, 25 years after releasing their hit song Brimful of Asha
That’s right, they are Tjinder Singh and Ben Ayres who formed 90s band, Cornershop.
Their music is a fusion of Indian music, indie rock, alternative and electronic dance music.
The duo have continued to release music, but unfortunately haven’t been able to recreate their initial success.
Their official Instagram page boasts 3,500 followers, where they regularly post music throwbacks and London snaps.
In 2011, Cornershop were awarded a prize for Commitment to Scene in the UK Asian Music Awards.
The band released their last album England Is A Garden in 2020.
They told The Quietus at the time, ‘With this album we knew that we had to wait for a better time for it to be received.
‘A couple of years ago this wouldn’t have been the case and then even when it was finished it took a while to get it mastered and to get it into production because things change.’

After the album dropped, Cornershop revealed in an interview with The Guardian that they aren’t going anywhere.
They did think about it a few years ago, then they realised something important. ‘It’s not about being proficient, it’s about what you can do with it, and it’s the attitude.’
‘And the ideas,’ Ayres adds. ‘The ideas,’ Singh repeats. ‘You know, there’s no real cupboard we can be put in. We’re constantly misfiled. That makes it harder for us. But isn’t there something brilliant in that too?’
