Extramental rock.


Couple of weeks back while waking up with TV i watched half of the show featuring Indian bands on NDTV goodtimes. That week they were featuring The Extramentals-a chennai band. The vocalist is incidentally Kamal Hassan’s daughter Shruthi Hassan who is about to debut on the big screen later this year. Her Myspace blog. i liked her singing. They play at some of the Top clubs in India. i couldnt find any recording here on the net.

Other than that i had heard from Prashant- a guitarist friend, who’s now in chennai that Zero is good. i havnt heard any of their music yet though. Parikrama i like, even though i heard only one song. and then there’s the usual campus rock music that u hear like sutta , xlri ki kudiyan and gand mein danda.

The Indian music scene is improving nowadays. and i mean the more original music type not covers. Thats where the new movie Rock on! comes in. it seems to me like a movie based around a rock band. i’ve listened to the music and found some real good rock in it! especially Sindbad the Sailor, Pichle saat dino mein and Zehereelay. Low decibel rock.

With campus rock Idols taking mainstage and the awareness spreading with saregama bringing out its Underground series.. i think we have much to listen to.

my dream: record a song before the end of engg. and we split up. Trying to get my hand on Aloysius outgoing band’s last jam sessions. My friend is drumming for them.
