Founded in 1985 under the name "Alane Again Or". The group changed its name to "The Shamen" in late 1985 or early 1986.
The Shamen material was primarily psychedelic indie rock. In 1987 they were inspired by M/A/R/R/S and similar new groups that used sampling and beats.
The Shamen had fifteen hits in the British singles chart, five of which made the top ten. This track initially called "Pro>gen" (later renamed "Move Any Mountain" after its infectious chorus) went to number 4.
