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.

About Thermal And A Quarter (TAAQ)
Thermal And A Quarter is a trendsetting rock band from Bangalore, India, more recently infamous as the outsourcing capital of the universe. We are three members, three albums and ten years old. We are known as TAAQ to the affectionate and the impatient and have been fortunate to earn the loyalty of a worldwide fan base mostly thanks to that little ditty that Al Gore claims he started, the Internet. We believe that each album sold, each swatch of music played creates a potential messenger of TAAQ’s music.

Zaki Merchant (Rythm Guitars)

BIOGRAPHY ::

The band 5 AM was formed in aug’ 05.We used to have impromptu jams with jus an acoustic guitar at sandeep’s place.This was in early 2004 when all of us were going for guitar classes.We had an overnight party at sandeep’s place and on the following morning we suddenly decided to form a band and thought we should be serious about our music.We had no proper equipments and prony played the drums on a shoe stand with books arranged on it when he was Bassless and when the band had no drummer..We found a drummer named Santosh in aug ’05 and got the equipments we wanted.We wanted a wacky name for the band and came up with the name “5 Aphrodisiac Munks” and finally settled with “5 AM”. The band 5 AM was born.

The Band got an oppurtunity to play in a cafe called espressophilia and that was our first ever break.We were confused and rusty initially but the sunday jam in feb’06 was the turning point in the band’s music.We were tagged cliched and confused but that particular gig was a learning experience for the band.We realised that we need to do what we are good at and not experiment too much.So we went back to our roots and stuck to alternative/punk rocks which is our kinda music.We started to play a lot more regularly after the band members were done with the academics.Our Drummer Santosh had to leave the band due to his professional commitments and the band was in search of a new drummer.That was when we found Subhramani who was introduced to us by a common friend.Subbu as he is called was a perfect fit for the band and played his first gidg with us at Barista Unplugged.The band has seen radical shift after the inclusion of Subbu as the drummer.
