After what seems like a thousand years of blood. sweat. tears. and a lot more blood. your zombified disc disciples at Finders Kreepers unveil one of their most essential collections yet. This musical mausoleum of malformed freak funk and dreadful discothèque pop has been resurrected from the maligned cinematic subculture of Bombays bloodthirsty horror film industry and witnesses the cognoscenti of the Bollywood pop scene at their most creative. destructive and experimentally effective. Tip!
Bollywood Bloodbath features India's finest composers, such as Bappi Lahiri, R.D Burman,
Sonik Omi, Sapan Jogmohan and Laxmikant Pyarelal making the kind of radical risk-rock
that would under normal circumstances have studio security escorting these overworked
maestros off set for a well-earned break or a relaxing exorcism. Take all the most oblique,
indigenous characteristics of your favourite Bollywood musicals then condense them into a
bubbling serum and watch the Jekyll and Hyde transformation commence as these A-list
composers create bloodcurdling B-Music for the films they never thought the outernationals
would see or hear.
Leading up to the inauguration of
the notorious Ramsay Bros film company (whose sibling revelry in the 70s and 80s lead to
the inclusion of flight-style puke bags in participating picture houses) this compilation pulls
no punches and plunges the 'B' of Bombay into the heart of the b-movie and squirts a
masala of bloody ketchup and red wine onto the sets of Bollywood's glorious filmic musicals.
Licensed exclusively from the independent Indian film music companies (revealing incidental
tracks that they didn’t even know they owned) Bollywood Bloodbath is the result of avid
stomach turning research via VHS tapes, chewed-up cassettes, and LPs, 12''s and 45s
remastered from some of the only existing master tapes; presented on both CD and vinyl
for both the hairy home listeners and daring DJs just in time for the witching season.
Hunt down the spooky Sansani before it gets to you first!
