Dischordian began as my attempt to move away from the wall of sound and aggression and testosterone that makes up most rock music. I just wanted to do something new and different – keep the intensity and depth of feeling that is so important for any art to work, but strip the music down to its basics: one guitar and one voice, just rhythms and melodies and words.
Dischordian is constantly evolving and is today a three-piece acoustic band whose members play guitars, harmonica, trumpet, djembe and a variety of other percussion instruments. The music
incorporates all the sounds I have loved and learned from since I was a child, including country, pop, rock ‘n’ roll, punk, metal, folk, and a multitude of styles that have no real labels.
In the 12 months since the band was formed, we have played at practically every major venue in Bombay, and have developed a considerable following, based primarily on our live shows and a set of low-fi home demos. Dischordian has just finished recording its as yet untitled debut album, which should be released by the summer of 2010.
