Bleak – free download

My mumbai trip was awesome in so many aspects. All I did was rock n’ roll. SO along with my talented Sound Engineer friend Jainil I made this song. It’s my first ever attempt. I wanted it Dark Ambient and partly depressive. Made it on Steinberg Nuendo 4. I am very thankful to Jainil for helping me out with recording. Piano part is played by him.

Led Zeppelica and Kryptos

Tired of previous day’s “Blizzards of rock” competition. I fell asleep in the afternoon and damn i woke up at 7pm. I was like SHIT! I called up shyam and asked him where he was, and he’d say he is already inside and kryptos have started playing. I was like FUCK !

I simply put on my Motorhead tee and left. Bought pass worth 300 and went in. When I went in, Kryptos were already playing. Last four songs were to go. I tried going in the front and found out that all those wannabe kids were moshing, rather they were doing “garba”. So I decided to stay away. But I gotta admit Kryptos were really good. Their music had this Old School flavor in it. Vocals made it even mint! Many didn’t like them coz they didn’t have machine gun double bass drumming through out the song. But again “ignorance is bliss” is the best suitable quote for them. I loved them. They were unique, they knew what they are doing and they knew their sound ! Later I met them off stage and they are humble guys. They don’t have fake “rockstar” attitude in them. That’s enough to love them !

Now, it was time for the grand performance. It was Led Zepplica. They started with “immigrant song“. They played “Dazed and confused” of full length and they nailed it. I was bit skeptical about the vocals part but he scored it well. It was ironic that the guitarist looked like Robert Plant. They played “rock n’ roll” but the crowd totally disappointed them by giving very ignored response! Actually that’s all you can expect from such a crowd. Mainly all of them had come for the DJ party that was right after the performance. After that it was time for “No quarter“. He played the song with the violin Bow..It was really amazing. Perfect wah-wah effect without using the patch ! They played all time great “Kashmir” and they went off the stage, every-one was wondering why not “Stairway” and the reason was the time. They were told to finish up by 10 and they actually did. When I checked the time..it was just 3 mins to 10pm. I think they didn’t know that IST means Indian Stretchable Time but Indian Standard Time. But they came back on crowd’s request, they played it..they nailed it.

I got to admit that I’ve never had such heavy doze of Rock n’ roll injected ! I wish it keep on happening through out the year.

After that it was some shitty DJ night and there more people interested in it, but for me the day ended when rock n’ roll ended.

Euphoria gig?

Okay,  so I went to this “free” gig last night and the headlining (also the only) band was “Euphoria“. Indian Rock/sufi/indie pop/shit rock/(put any random insulting word along with rock) band had come down to perform in some dentistry school, which I had never heard of until one of my friend got in there (that’s last year). It was almost 25 km away, none of us had money for the fuel. Which resulted into me scratching my card despite knowing that I’m never gonna get that money back ! 😦

We were surprised to see that the whole road was filled with parked cars on both the sides. I wonder people are really crazy that they come this far in cold to such stupid acts. Nevermind. Now, at the gate, there were two bouncers, too. :O (later, in the gig, I even saw a security guy with gun residing in the wallet, whatever it’s called, just like one they show in those fancy CID shows, one underneath armpit) . As we entered there was helluva crowd shouting and cheering and I was like wtf. That guy was literally shouting and singing off note.

The stage set up and lighting was really amazing. Sound sucked, so did the band. Bass guitar was not at all audible (I doubt whether he was playing or not). There was no melody in the vocals. More over they played stupid covers of hindi songs. A band like Euphoria (apparently a mainstream band), despite having 4 studio albums and 5th one to release, has to play covers of “apni toh paath shaala”, “emotional atyachar” etc. what could be more failure than this !! *sings “mm..mm it makes me wonder” in Robert Plant accent*

I have to admit one thing that Dental college have so many hot chicks, which you can’t hit upon !!

 

Few clarifications :

I wrote this because..

1. Band review was so small that I had to write crap initially

2. To educate those n00bs that rock is something different than what you saw last night

3. Someday Euphoria member (or the whole band) reads this and face the reality

4. I was bored

 

PS-I am so excited about Led Zepplica gig this weekend at IIMA.

Now playing : Gallows Pole – Led Zeppelin

just for laugh

Superman was bored after all the crime fighting and wanted to go out and party, so he called up batman to ask if he wanted to go to a club and pick up some girls.

Batman : Robin is sick, so I have to look after him.

A little disappointed superman called spiderman to see if he fancied a few beers.

Spiderman : I have a date with Catwoman.

As a last resort superman flew over to Wonderwoman’s house to see if she was free. As he landed on her balcony, he saw her naked on the bed with legs open.

Superman thought to himself : “I’m faster than a bullet, I could be in there, have sex and be out again before she knew what was happening.”

So Superman did his super thingy in a split second and flew off happily.

Meanwhile in the bed, wonderwoman said: “Did you hear something?”

“NO” said the invisible man, but my ass hurts like hell ! “

A girl enters a bar and sees a cute guy.

Girl: Hey, what are you drinking?

Guy: It’s a “magic beer”.

Girl: What magic does it have?

Guy: Wanna see?

Guy jumps out of the window, flies in the air, climbs a couple of skyscrappers and jumps back in.

Girl(amazed): I can’t believe it. I must have this drink, too.

Guy to bartender: Give thie lady what I’m having.

Girl drinks the beer, jumps out of the window, falls from 4th floor and dies.

Bartender: You know what Superman? You’re an asshole when you’re drunk!!




yeah, that’s me

pearls of wisdom

"Apparently people don't like the truth, but I do like it; I like it because it upsets a lot of people. If you show them enough times that their arguments are bullshit, then maybe just once, one of them will say, 'Oh! Wait a minute - I was wrong.' I live for that happening. Rare, I assure you."

Keep an eye
