Bangalore Rock (Thermal And A Quarter)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

Thermal And A Quarter are an incredibly tight three piece band who play contemporary Indian rock with a refreshing sense of humour. The pounding drums and funky, driving bass form a formidable rhythm section at the heart of the trio; meanwhile guitarist and frontman Bruce Lee Mani also has fantastic technical ability and a clear love for what the band do, but never takes himself too seriously, offering often humorous lyrics and jokey patter. As well as being enjoyable and entertaining, their songs are also musically very interesting, one example being the fusion of southern Indian folk with blues. This is rock with a twist at its finest.

Spotlites @ The Merchants’ Hall, until 26 Aug, times vary.
