Little Babooshka's Grind

Little Babooshka's Grind

Little Babooshka's Grind (LBG) are a rock band from Chennai consisting of the Janakiram brothers Arjun, Avneet & Aum, with James B Boskey on Keys, Marky Spitneck on drums & U.D Kiran behind the console. Starting of as a progressive metal band in college back in 1995, over the years the Janakiram Bros. went through numerous line up changes to discover their passion for original music in a cover dominated rock 'n' roll scene. In 1998, they released their first studio record titled "Blue Butterfly Express" which topped the mp3.com charts in India along with bands like Pentagram, Taaq & Millenium. It was termed as an electronica album by listeners with only 25 CD's & 100 tapes released. "Lost in Space", "Blue Butterfly Express" & "House of Cards" were the popular songs from the E.P.

In 2002, with the introduction of Vasanth David on drums and Praveen Heinrich & Arjun on vocals, LBG set upon to record their 2nd album "This Animal is called the wallet" consisting of 16 songs with genres ranging from rock to reggae, metal to pop & blues to acoustic. The 2004 power packed release had a very positive reaction from fans which sold over 1500 album between the launch and 2007. "Money" was the instant hit in the album which was re-released on many compilation albums and always had the audience singing along. Other notable tracks from the album were "Scarawag", "Shannigan", "Codeine", "More than the Colour Green" & "Sweet China Lady". Critics raved and ranted about the album saying things like a mammoth release, catchy songs little half baked, has too much variety & slightly drum heavy mix. The band took the experience and determination to the next level with it's 3rd release "Bad Children" in 2006.

More Info: Interview with Sonu Shankar of RSJ in October 2004 http://thelbg.com/rsj_interview.htm

In 2005 with the exit of drummer Vasanth came the entry of Maynard Grant on the drums, LBG produced & performed an acoustic tour with songs from the Wallet and their upcoming album to better their skills as musicians and kick start the writing process for their 3rd album. On 14th November,2006 (Childrens' Day) LBG released "Bad Children" with 11 heavy power packed songs. To promote the album, the band self produced a full fledged music video for "Basics of Life" (which aired on SS music for many months during the late night show after the release) and performed a series of gigs all over the country from Distil (Chennai), Asian House (Pondicherry) Legends of Rock (Bangalore), Hard Rock Cafe (Mumbai), Unwind Center (Chennai & Bangalore) and sold 2300 copies worldwide between 2006 till East Winds 2008 (New Delhi). Bad Children was nominated for Best Indian Rock Album of the year by RSJ Readers poll in 2007 along with artists like Pentagram, Taaq, Blackstrat Blues & Dream Out Loud. Songs like "Super Cat", "Soma", "Part of Me" & "Breathe" were the crowd favorites and the title track "Bad Children" was compiled on the Stupidities Vol. I (an Un Metal compilation of music from all over india)

In 2009 LBG decided to get back in to studio to record their 4th album, but were hit by a series of distractions and writers block. To tackle the problem LBG inducted James B. Boskey on the keyboards / orchestration and the band began exploring a new sound. In the middle 2009, Praveen Heinrich decided to go solo and leave the city in search of greener pastures. In the persuit to fill his shoes, Arjun and Aum started music lessons and vocal coaching while scouring the city for a new vocalist. As side projects, Aum co-founded a blues trio called Blues Conscience and the J Bros and Boskey founded Bonfire Collective, a Pop Band / Music School with Jerry John (JYG) on Drums. LBG announced a hiatus in 2010 to its fans as it took time to pursuit the new ventures both musically and personally. The experience was a much needed recharge by foraying into other styles of music and collaborating with vocalist, rappers, visual Djs, music Djs, percussionist, sound engineers, lighting engineers, animators and photographers etc. Mid 2010, The Janakiram Bros released "FREE" under the LBG banner which is to the best of their knowledge India's first experimental live-jam video album consisting of 14 songs with footage from Creative Commons video library. Creatives Commons acknowledged the project as a massive under taking from India. As Bonfire Collective, they also released an anti corruption song titled Mr President which has a full length animated video.
