Shor Do Aanchal......Zamana Kya Kahega?

Shor Bazaar is a five-member band formed in September 2007 in Bombay. We specialize in wasting our time trying to make money through music. Till date our earnings total zero.

Influences...(a.k.a. agar hum Bollywood main hote toh hum inse "inspired" hote..)

Kishore Kumar, R. D. Burman, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Incubus, Junoon and Lucky Ali.

We are....

JD (Jayajit) (singer/songwriter/harmonica) Hothead (...not to be confused with hotbed). Radical Dreamer. Yeh hamaare lead-singer-ji hain. Loves playing his guitar without a pick (...not to be confused with prick).

Robin
(rhythm/lead guitar/keyboard/backing vocals) Lazy. Lazy. Lazy. Lazy. Darn good on the acoustic though. Loves weird chords.

Joy (lead guitar/backing vocals) Wastes too much time researching music equipment and software. Got good pedals :) Loves big fat guitar tones.

KK (Krishna) (bass guitar/backing vocals) Mr. Harmonizer. Would give some of the Eventides a good run for their money. Also Mr. Suspended Chords. Hates one note bass. Loves anything acoustic.

Sumit (drums/percussion/backing vocals) Mad Professor. Also Lazy. Loves Thom Yorke and his Sony MDR7506 cans.

Thats all the boredom we have for you today.

Aaplya patience ani wela sathi dhanyawaad.

P.S. We have a lot of gear. Anyone interested in being a roadie...please do mail in. If you are lucky, you may be treated to a bowl of manchow soup at Classic Chinese for all your efforts.

P.S.2. Yes, we are ugly (....hmm...all except JD of course) and have no money....but if you are still interested in being a groupie...ugh...who am I kidding?!?!

guys...get some classical training before getting on with music...music is not a matter of joke....it shows in your music that you arent trained enough in any form of music...in india music is zero without melody...music is not just making a tune or a non-metrical poem...and then making riffs/chords/leads etc. for it...if you make such music nobody would listen...your songs are thoroughly boring and uninspiring...get some training and then start musicing you would get the difference.....bbye for now....you can contact me @ modicum_happiness@ rediffmail.com

Ur music is a bit similar to Indian Ocean .....
Rasili is really very rasila song ....Mast hai bhai .......
Gud luck !!

Savi said...

'rasili' has amazing music, however the vocals recording is not properly done....'nahin achha' is a just another run of the mill song...the vocals in lailaaj reminds me of kishore kumar's voice....and u guys could do with less esoteric lyrics at this stage of your career....i mean rasili is such a nice hummable song but the lyrics simply do not register...sufi i guess...so try using simpler lyrics, at least now....nahi toh indian ocean ki tarah mainstream mein nahin aa paoge...and unka lyrics toh phir bhi itna esoteric nahi hai..

best of luck for future endeavours

suyash said...

toooooooo goood... count me your fan from now on... rasili my definite favorite...

Pessimist said...

rasili ka huha lyrics hain.........JD rocks!!!!!

Hey Guys...Listened ur songs.....gotta say that nice attempt.....instrumentalists r really clean.....the theme of the songs r different from the contemporaries so it gives a fresh feel to the band...For that lemme congratulate the lyricist. But the only drawback of the band is the vocalist. When a singer like Lucky ali can sing in tune on record, then I wonder how come this guy can sing so out of tune.....Plus, you can extract a bit more melody in vocals.......

Best of luck!!!!

Prateek said...

"Nahi Achha" was great.JD sang it pretty well.Very tranquil song."LaIlAaJ" has some creative beats.I too am into tabla and percussion.I couldnt find out ur mail address so here is mine if u want me to be ur groupie electricbeats.prateek@gmail.com
