Happy Mondays, Oasis, Ride members launch new band Mantra Of The Cosmos with debut single ‘Gorilla Guerilla’

The track is described as “a fantastic psychedelic groove from a band of misfits, outsiders and innovators"

Mantra Of The Cosmos, the new British supergroup made up of some of the most influential acts from the past 30 years, have released a single.

Featuring Shaun Ryder (Happy MondaysBlack Grape), Zak Starkey (The WhoOasis), Andy Bell (OasisRide) and Bez (Happy MondaysBlack Grape), their debut track ‘Gorilla Guerilla’ has been described as “a fantastic psychedelic groove from a band of misfits, outsiders and innovators,” by Starkey.

The track comes with a colourful and trippy music video directed by Ryder’s son Olli Ryder. Mantra Of The Cosmos debuted the song at an intimate show in London’s famous club, The Box.

Starkey came up with the idea for the band, which has Ryder on vocals, Bell on guitar, and Bez and Starkey on percussion. Speaking on the new project, Bell says: “It’s a pleasure to be part of Mantra of the Cosmos. Four like-minded souls who get off on the same music.”

Ryder previously shared that while the influences from the members’ respective projects are still prominent, the supergroup’s music sounds nothing like what the musicians have released before. “It doesn’t sound like the Mondays or Black Grape or Oasis or The Who, it’s what we’re doing all together,” he added, mentioning that an album is the works.
