Paying tribute to Kurt Cobain

first_imgNirvana haven’t lost their mojo. At least nowhere in the party circuit they haven’t. So it isn’t surprising that bands would like to pay a tribute to Kurt Cobain’s cult rock band (they sing their numbers anyway). Latest to take the tribute route is Hundred Octane, who will be paying a tribute to Nirvana in a city music cafe today. We caught up with the band for details. Read on:What will your performance be all about?It is a tribute to Nirvana. We will be playing exclusive Nirvana songs apart from our own compositions. We often pay tribute to these metal bands we have grown up listening to since they are our idols. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’What does the name Hundred Octane signify?When we started off, we were a bunch of engineers. Octane is a term used in engineering which is a unit to measure the inflamibility of fuel. So 100 octane is the highest point of fuel inflamation. It is similar to the music we create and the energy we infuse in it.What does music mean to you?It’s passion for us which we have turned into our way of living. There are many other bands in the music circuit. What do you think about the competition? Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixWe do not believe in competition. Music is not a car race. Different genres of music have different fan following. We have our own style of playing and belong to the metal genre, hence we have our own audience. We have managed to establish our own independent music.What have been your biggest achievements?Achievements are nothing but mere milestones which come and go. But one of the most memorable moments was when we launched our own album last year. Initially it did not fare well but slowly it made profits. How do you deal with challenges?There are always two ways to face all the odds of life — either you deal with them head on or just kill yourself. Challenges have been a part of our daily routine. It’s something that can never be done away with. How did music come calling?We were always conditioned to study since all of us belong to high academic oriented families. We were always discouraged about off-beat careers like music, art etc and since we scored well, engineering for us was a compulsion, not a choice. Later, we realised we are not cut out for engineering. It’s like when you spread out your wings, you realise you are at the wrong place at the wrong time.Where do you derive your inspiration for your music from?Our daily lives form our inspiration. Whatever comes across in our day to day routine, we compose songs. For example, recently a friend of ours commited suicide, so we composed a song on her and how she broke down under the societal pressures. There is nothing specific behind our numbers. The lighter moments of life (love, hatred, violence) and philosophical content too get reflected in our music.What are your future plans?We do not plan. We as a band just rock and roll with whatever life throws at us. There are also no compromises made with respect to our music. We are a metal band and will continue to play.DETAILAt: Hard Rock Cafe, DLF Place, Saket When: Today Timings: 9 pm onwards Phone: 011 47158888last_img read more

All rained in

first_imgFirst showers of monsoon are welcomed by everyone. With the monsoons here, let’s alter our food and lifestyle habits according to the season to stay healthiest. From the health and well-being perspective, it is important that we stay in tune with nature so that our physical and mental acuity is high, and our immunity functions at its best. Stick to seasonal fruits and vegetables. For instance, eat mangoes only till the season lasts, not till the end of rainy season. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Well, it’s really comforting to sit at home with a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy the lashing rain. But then there are always comfort foods which will add more warmth to your soul on a rainy day. If you are still pondering over what to make, then you can go ahead and indulge in soup, chips and dips, mini pies, and of course the pakoras, samosas and tikkis that are the ultimate delights for a delhiites in monsoon. And if you are one of those, who love their share of sweet fare, then go for a hot brownie with chocolate sauce. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixMy advice on what to try in this monsoon season would be- Bittu Tikki Wala at Karol Bagh, who is famous for its tikkis, pakodas and mutter kulchas. Food joints at C R Park are quiet popular too for its fried delicacies. Daddu’s cutlet shop is one of my favourite place at C R Park for its dhakai paratha, moghlai paratha, piyazi, fish chop, alu chop, mutton chop, egg devil chop, fish fry, chicken seekh kabab rolls, egg mutton seekh kabab rolls and off course mocha chop which is made from banana flower. Apart from giving relieve from the intense heat of the summer season, monsoon brings with itself some health risks as well. Monsoon is the time when the humidity levels are high in the atmosphere and the capability of our body’s digestive system is at its lowest. There’s no need to panic, as some small variations in eating habits will keep problems at bay. Unhealthy diet: Potatoes, cauliflower, cluster beans, kidney beans, urad, sprouted grains should, consume milk can be avoided. Avoid leafy greens altogether or wash in potassium permanganate before cooking. To avoid stomach ailments and other water-borne diseases, avoid cut fruits or any cold street food. You must carry water from home when you head out or insist on packaged drinking water. To keep immunity high, eat fruits and vegetables high in vitamin c, beta carotene and iron (carrots, beets, lime, amla, dates). Add ginger and garlic to your cooking to keep sniffles at bay and stomach ailments down. Enjoy monsoon with French Onion Soup and Lamb lasagna, which are the two monsoon favorites at Olive Bar and Kitchen.last_img read more
