Hindu Love Gods is the only album by American band Hindu Love Gods, released in 1990. The album was recorded around the same time as Warren Zevon's album Sentimental Hygiene, for which Zevon had enlisted Bill Berry, Peter Buck, and Mike Mills of R.E.M. as players. The musicians also recorded this set of cover versions, reputedly during a late night drunken recording session.[citation needed] The recordings were not originally intended for release.[citation needed]
