"Feels great to be in the band" says Anish. Feels great to tour all
over India alongside all these crazy freaks! *Cheeky Smile* .. I hate
to say that sometimes they take me to edge of my patience and my
drumming limits (solos), which is challenging ofcorse at the same time,
exercising my level of patience as i just said *Smiles*. But the guys
are great, never felt i was an outcast, after join in. At times they
are very anti-corporate on their talks at our practice room but that
just the way they operate.... they are soemthin' like a "loving loud
family" i should say. So initially it took some time for me to digest
to figure out what the hell is goin on in here?? *Smiles*
Talkin about the practise room, reminded me of the guys. Jagan and
Sunil and the serious dudes with a guy in the corner holding his red
Yamaha TRB with a serious face. THE most funniest dude in the band is
the guy behind the keyboard. Saji. And this is someone i should talk
about! Man.. guess ill write a book on him about the little pranks and
bullshit that he do later *Laughs*.
My favourite song off of their début record should be "From Here To
Clarity". The song is very proggy to me but nevertheless fails to
attract a descent crowd. Not a moshy crowd but you get the idea *Looks
around and winks ;)*.
But let me tell you what the real challenge is - to play "Run To The
Light" live. The song just sounds so different when you play it. Let
alone playing out to a live audience. "You know how hard it is???"
*Scratches his forearms*...I dont know man, the song has got a lot of
off n' odd timing beats but we jammed on it and came out with some
interesting stuff. Something we call the "live version" of the song.
You should listen to it sometime. Maybe ill put up some videos of me
playin' it on EvergreenTV. Should be up n runnin' in a couple of days..
So yea.. Thats how that goes..
Oh yea, guys, dont forget to check out EvergreenTV, we're
launching it soon to a Youtube most probably in 1 or 2 days. So check
that out. We'll keep you updated on that one.
In my years to come, i expect a new album and a heart wrenching new
sound from us... Currently we are working on some new stuff. And it
sounds pretty badass! It will feature me playing some native
instruments. Also we would be doing some International Gigs too. Will
keep you posted so check out our Facebook Page for more ;) ..
