Members of Happy Mondays, Oasis, and Ride Form Mantra of the Cosmos, Share Debut Single

    Happy Mondays members Shaun Ryder and Bez, Andy Bell of Ride, and drummer Zak Starkey (The Who, Oasis), have formed the new supergroup Mantra of the Cosmos. Their debut single, ‘Gorilla Guerilla’, arrives today alongside a music video directed by Shaun Ryder’s son Olli Ryder. Check it out below.

    “It’s a pleasure to be part of Mantra of the Cosmos,” Bell said in a statement. “Four like-minded souls who get off on the same music.” Ryder added, “It’s a fucking blast, mate.”

    After making their live debut over the weekend with a surprise show at London’s The Box,  Mantra of the Cosmos are set to perform at Glastonbury later in the month.
