From a college band in 1996, through thick and thin. Thermal and A Quarter is back with a Bangalore gig in exciting Koramangala.  Tony Das seemed excited as I went through my newsfeed this week. 

Bruce has recently come into possession of this beast of an amplifier, and you've got to hear this thing.

( Details at the gig! )
I mean, come on.
The other day, I plugged the Strat straight in, like this : 
Strat (single coils only!) -> Cable -> Amp -> Marshall 4x12 

See you at the gig, folks!

I remember the lyrics from Paper Puli and quote

Just met this funny man
From the funny papers
Is there any other kind
Said he hadn't heard much
About my rock n'roll band
Sure hoped he had a story in mind
He seemed indolent and carefree
Lit up a cigarette offhandedly
And then he asked me if I wanted
Some good publicity
