Three first being ex-members of General Havoc a group of Preston which had left individual ( Fast Jaspal ) in 1991.
The name of the group refers to the stereotype of the immigrant Indien in England which often has a small shop, the graver of the corner of the street (equivalent of " the Arab of the coin" in France).

HistoryWith the beginning of the year 1990, whereas the popular singer Morrissey is disparaged by the British press (in particular by NME) because of his refusal to contradict the charges of racism in his opposition, the members of Cornershop burn a photograph of the singer in front of the offices of the recording company EMI.
The first individual In The Days off Ford Cortina is a mixture of pop noisy tinted Indian sonorities, the sound somewhat softens with the exit of the first album Hold One It Hurts in 1994.
