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.
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.
