Bad Children - LBG
After two years hard work, composing and determination, Chennai based rock band Little Babooshka’s Grind (LBG) is back with their second album ‘Bad Children’ released late last year.
You can expect some real hard hitting songs and some very interesting compositions and its clear that the band has put its heart and soul into this album. This is one album you don’t want to pass on .. you should give it a listen. We at RadioVeRVe definitely recommend that you do!
Watch out for the LBG special in the RadioVeRVe playlist going on air with heavy rotation now for all of you to lend your ears to! I caught up with the band for some in depth analysis of their music and the philosophy behind LBG, some trivia and probably the first online radio broadcast of all the songs in their album!
Arjun, Avnith, Maynard, Praveen and Aum are a completely funky bunch who made quite a few people sit up and take notice with their first album ‘The Animal is called the Wallet’ but with ‘Bad Children’ have cemented their place in people’s minds …
Our apologies to LBG for the delay at our end but without much further ado … Ladies and Gentlemen … Little Babooshka’s Grind!
Happy Birthday Bruce!
One of our all time favourite guitarists here on RadioVeRVe is one year older and wiser today! The poster boy for all things good about ‘Rock and Roll’, Bruce Lee (show me the) Mani of one of India’s Biggest bands ‘Thermal and a Quarter’ celebrates his birthday and we at RadioVeRVe wish him and TAAQ all the very best!
So lets raise our glasses and toast one of India’s finest, the ‘Quarter’ in Thermal and a Quarter! ... Bruce Lee Mani!
His description from the TAAQ site somehow seemed quite apt ..
Fatherhood pangs first gnawed at Bruce when he cradled his red Encore. His flock soon grew. Every day, he coochie-coos to each one, shines it, polishes it, powders its tender buns and changes its diapers. Pity his new set of wheels doesn’t get any of that TLC.
Bruce has lent to the band (TAAQ) what you might like to call the Dave Matthews effect: since he’s voxman, axeman and frontman rolled into one occasionally goateed six-feet-change frame, most people are forgiven for thinking we’re called The Bruce Lee Mani Band.
Go Ahead … Look at me!
Brown eyes, black hair
Never mind the goatee!
