A while ago a friend sent this awesome image of the indian Elvis-impersonator Peter Singh to me and I really loved the quote:
After Shirlie gave me the hint that this guy obviously comes from Wales I did a little research and came across his one and only album on cassette “Rock ‘n’ Roll – East Meets West”
Rocking With The Sikh
Bhindi Bhaji Boogie
Pick Your Turbans
Blue Suede Shoes
Elvis I’m On The Phone
Turbans Over Memphis
(The last title cracked me up!)
This is oh so wrong for an Elvis impersonator and oh so right for the kind of Elvis impersonator that would really send a kitsch lover over the moon. And how perfect that he has a cassette!
Do we know what year this came out? And if he’s still shaking his turban?
I don´t know from what year the cassette is, but I googled him and it looks like he´s still shaking his turban. He seems to be something like a street-artist who´s mainly doin´this just for fun. I wished I owned the cassette!
This has me wanting shake my own stuff over here. I would love to hear this.
Brilliant..I believe he owns or owned a chip shop in Wales. We need to hear him sing :)
