okie..went to the rockshow(mere college ka tha, banta hai)
The 4 compete bands were pathetic...donno what happened this time, last time we had prestorika,medicis,bhayanak maut,vishnu competing ...this time we had 4 crappy bands
Messiah: Punk Rock(need i say more)
Raja Band: bah..the guitarist doesnt seem to have the word tone in his dictionary..and crucify the dude who came up with that name. Did a nice cover of Aces High and a few passable Megadeth stuff
SuperFuzz ****Puff: ..whatever, teenage angst,anger exemplified to the max...what rot, done 10000 times...same nirvana type riffs though they were far better than the previous bands
Joint Family: Bah..nu metal. People=s.hit + Intestines - Brains ....pata nahi kaunsi equation chilla rahe the.
These guys were tight(no pun intended),got the crowd somewhat pumped up ...but nu metal isnt my cup of tea....
Abhi tak im thinking this is the worst rockshow eva...4 bands and no crowd response
Chalo phir aaye Brahma:
Baap re...they came with Appu Raja(their vocalist) ...watching their vocalist was hilarious..seriously gay dude. Did **** loads of commercial metallica covers..guitarist did mess up many songs, but phir bhi.. at least they got the crowd going...everyone singing unforgiven 2 ..the works.
And Finally Parikrama:
Ahh..this is the sweet stuff.
1. Played Rockn Roll \, some ACDC and Women from Tokyo(Deep purplr) seriously sweet...had gr8 fun.
2. Then went on to In the flesh and thin ice and finally run like hell by floyd.
...seriously amazing, for a big classical / prog rock fan this was the treat.
3. their 3 originals,...WOW!! ..i mean, these 3 songs seriously kick ass.
What was most amazing was the guitarists tone...baap re, id kill for a tone like that
Played jump , clocks someway in between
Ended off with Highway to Hell, WWWWRU ...woith fireworks etc etc.
In the end,..parikrama saved the day, kicked all other crappy bands ass big time.
PS1: Someone please tell these newbie bands to get a sense of identity and strive for an original sound and not simply try to ape successful bands
PS2: Vini, u missed a great show(at least the parikrama part)
PS3: The wannabe india rock fans whom u can easily identify with their long hair, ear rings and constipated looks are jsut a bunch of fking poseurs whose musical vocabulary doesnt go beyond slipknot,korn and mudvayne. Cudnt believe these guys actually had never heard Jump. Needless to say these guys dint enjoy the show.
"Mister Fripp, your music is quite different than everything else out there. In one word, how would you describe it?"
