GENRE :: Rock

BAND MEMBERS ::

Shawn Pereira

Shishir Thakur

BIOGRAPHY ::

The band black was originally formed in the year 2005(dec) following a break up in a previous project with Shawn, Roop, Rein. Black played a few shows did relatively well. And then died out with no shows coming our way. We had begun falling apart.

THE BAND THAT IS:
Just when things looked grim we finally found the perfect people for the job. The drums section was then introduced to Shishir. Reinhardt soon found himself looking for a band, ironically black was looking for a lead guitarist (Feb. 2007). It all fit. There has been no turning back for us. We love playing live, and the thought of playing Independence Rock, this year was an insane experience. We are here to stay and in your face so we will be seeing u guys on the long road back to the middle.
Fueled with nothing but the willingness to play music the only way we know, alive and full of life, having played in various bands in the past and facing road blocks, Black was a let out for us more than just musically…

Old Saying Jungle(Bangalore)

November 22, 2007

GENRE :: Funk / Experimental / Grunge

BAND MEMBERS ::

Sandeep Madhavan - Bass Guitar
Mel D'Mello - Electric Guitar
Aditya Menon - Vocals
Greg Hamra - Drums

BIOGRAPHY ::

A bunch of experimental, wise, improbably funky, jazzy, groovy love kamikazes, Old Jungle Saying is based in one of the lazy layouts of the southern city of Bangalore, India. Influenced by the likes of Primus, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Faith No More, Infectious Grooves and a whole lot of other bands whose genealogy is hard to trace, Old Jungle Saying serves up sumptuous slabs of psychedelic funk, held in place by the riotous rhythm section of Sandeep Madhavan (bass) and Greg Hamra on drums. As they steer the mothership through the murky, quirky guitars of Mel D’Mello and the spaced-out funkiness emanating from resident hippie Avijit Michael, the charismatic gurgling of Aditya Menon can be heard calling the faithful from above the rarified groove.
