Deshan sent me a flyer on the Brass Monkey show this weekend. Havena heard them, but they are Sri Lankan and original, which is a wonder in itself. I swear to God, everywhere I go the cover bands play ‘Night Shift’ by the Commodores. Any band that does not play ‘Night Shift’ is OK by me. Loki already promo’d the show, citing a British Council email:
The Brass Monkey Band is a young Sri Lankan band specialising in jazz, rock and hip-hop fusion music whose focus is to give Sri Lankan music lovers a taste of original Sri Lankan Music. The diverse talent of this band is apparent through the variety in their composition. Aadhil Aziz is the lead vocalist who is also the guitarist with Anik Jayasekera on drums and Oshan Gunawardana on the cello. Swinly Perera takes on the role of pianist, lead vocalist and violinist while Ravihansa Bandara will take on the tabla and percussions.
Dilshan was promoting them before he got deported, I think they’re good. Will see if I can find some MP3s or a CD or something.
Update: The show has tooken place.
In case anyone thinks I’m lowering the level of debate or whatever, here are some comments on the photos. As far as the Internet goes it’s 80% porn and 20% people at work wishing they could look at porn. The women here are the worst, which surprises me. All this from Flickr.
