A US studio group that recorded a song called ‘Keem-O-Sabe’ in 1969 and took it to number 16 on the US charts. The group was assembled by Bernie Binnick, who had founded Swan Records, and included musicians who later went on to form the Philadelphia group MFSB, as well as Frank Virtue of the instrumental group the Virtues. ‘Keem-O-Sabe’ was notable in that it was an Indian-music flavoured instrumental that made heavy use of the then-trendy sitar. An album was released under the Electric Indian name, and the group landed one other single on the charts, a cover of ‘Land Of 1, 000 Dances’, but the project was soon abandoned.
