Apache Indian: No Reservations [Limited Edition]

Album Reviews:

Q (4/93, p.77) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Apache's faultless style and vocals, though fashioned at the Supercat school of speech and pattern, sound fresh as they twist around everyday lyrics from the life of your average Asian roughneck....hotter than vindaloo..."

Option (9-10/93, p.90) - "...[Indian is] a first-class toaster, and the Indian themes give his songs unique subject matter and a worldly air often lacking in the narrow Jamaican dancehall sphere..."

Musician (6/93, p.91) - "...As silly as his shtick seems on paper, Apache Indian is wholly convincing on record, whether working with reggae greats like Maxi Priest or playing off his Indian roots in bhangra-flavored tunes like `Arranged Marriage'..."

Album Notes

Producers: Phil Chill, Bobby Digital, Robert Livingston, Sly Dunbar.

While his music is not bhangra in any accepted sense, he grew out of the bhangra scene. His is a remarkable bhangra-related dance music often carrying a social message in a mixed Punjabi, English and West Indian patois. Tracks such as "Chok There" (slang for 'Tear the house down'), "Move over India," "Don Raja" and "Arranged Marriage" made it a remarkable debut. (With one qualification: several tracks had previously appeared on Apachi Indian by Don Raja, a mini-album for Jet Star (SDCD46) which spelled his name in a nonstandard way.) ~ Ken Hunt
