Most pop-pickers have not heard much from Cornershop of late. Their seminal “Brimful of Asha” was a landmark of brilliantness in a sea of Britpop which saw Tjinder Singh become the first “out” Asian to score a UK number one (I’m not counting Freddie Mercury, Cliff Richard or the chap out of Babylon Zoo).

Well it turns out The Shop song Candyman has been used for a US commercial with some famous basketball player or other. Since then the video has been watched 84,000 in 24 hours and as a result Candyman has superseded Brimful on US Itunes!
