Hootie and the Blowfish on RhythmFish 21.5FM

Although they split in 2008 (why do great bands always have to split?) Hootie and the Blowfish continue to rule our hearts with their soul stirring rock songs. Cracked Rear View is perhaps one of the most definitive and popular albums to have made it to the Billboard (number 15th actually in terms of best selling albums in the US). We bring you two hours of non-stop Hootie and The Blowfish including quite a few chart topppers  Cracked Rear View.
Our sincere gratitude to Mark Bryan, Dean Felber, Darius Rucker and Jim Sonefeld. ..........why do great bands split?

Where's your will to be weird?

.... Thus spoke the lizard king. And backed it up with songs like The End. It goes on for 11 minutes and explores a psychiatric condition called Oedipal Complex. High, that;s what we are saying. High and very high :) If you do not believe us take a look at the video.
The band made the Electric Organ it's signature instrument and even today when one listens to The Doors, even without listening to the vocals can make out the distinct high notes. Take a listen to The Doors on RhythmFish 21.5FM for the next coming days. If you haven't loved Jim already, you will now.

RhythmFish Quiz:
How many times does Jim wish to be loved?

Bangla Rock

In our attempt to keep looking for lesser knows bands who are really big on Music, RhythmFish 21.5 FM over the weekend will host a lot of Bangla Rock. Most of these artists have distinct influences of Pink Floyd, Punk Rock, Metallica etc. The heavy bass guitars and the distinct sounds of lead and metal are hard to miss. Also, a lot of songs have a very strong psychedellic bend to them. Combined with fiery Bangla lyrics and a fusion of the popular Bengali folk music poured in generous amounts along with heavy metal , these songs make for a gripping experience.
Sample these soul stirring lyrics from Mohiner Ghoraguli

bhebe dekhecho ki
tararao joto alok borsho dure
taro dure
tumi aar ami jai krome shore shore

Mohiner Ghoraguli was perhaps the first band that ventured into this phenomenon, which is now mastered by some very popular Bangla Rock bands.

So if you are in it for the music, and (and you really need not know these lyrics) do tune-in at the hours mentioned on the right hand side events list.

PS: If you really like some particular song, do leave a comment. This will help us promote the voice behind the song.

Let's go Pearl Jam - ming!

We veer into Pearl Jam this week folks. A band that along with bands like Nirvana was responsible for the Grunge movement during the early 90s.
Although Eddie Vedder springs to mind the moment we say Pearl Jam, Jeff Ament and Mike McCready are two of the most underrated guitarists who deserve a lot more credit. Listen to Deep on RhythmFish if you don't believe us.

We are featuring some of their best albums like Binaural, No Code,  Vs and Ten (but of course).

Also fusion lovers do not miss the fusion titled The Long Road. An amazing fusion by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Eddie Vedder - guess we have your attention now :)

Pay Heed - It's Amy Lee

"Britney Spears and all that, they don’t threaten me, they don’t bother me, because they’re not talented. " . There you go. She said it. And we have agreed. On numerous occasions.

We also think that it would take some real talent to be a threat to this super rocker from Evanescence. There have been quite a few women who have tried to imitate her but none have come close to this talented and powerful lead singer/writer.
RhythmFish pays it's respect to Amy Lee. All you rock fans who fancy women power on the rock scene should pay heed and listen.
If you fancy any particular number / songs just leave a message, tell us why and if we find it interesting enough, we shall line it up for you at RhythmFish Radio 21.5FM.
Event List for Evanescence is on the right panel.

In fond memory of Creedence Clearwater Revival

With sincere thanks to the Fogerty Brothers, Stu and Doug, RhymthmFish Radio 21.5FM continues its fervent yet brief rendezvous with classic rock this month. Stay tuned for dedicated CCR radio hours, as in the events listing on your right panel. Honestly, we would have loved to play Creedence all day, but then we wouldn’t be able to give you a taste of RF’s personal favorite - Creedence Clearwater Revisited.

Laides and Gentlemen - let the Bad Moon Rise.

Thank you dear editor for fixing some unpardonable mistakes.

Eighties Rock on RhymthFish - All of October

Alright. So it's Eighties Rock for October on RhythmFish Radio. Time for Hard rock, heavy metal, Big Hair Bands, and Glam metal. We have been overwhelmed by the amount of requests for Petty, Genesis, Billy Idol, Motley Crew, Poison etc.

Come to think of it guys like Billy Idol aka Broad from The Bromley Contigent were serious punk rockers :)

But this post is not about punk rock per say, it's more about crooning to lyrics like :

Well Ive been waiting, waiting here so long
But thinking nothing, nothing could go wrong, ooh now I know
She has a built in ability
To take everything she sees
And now it seems Im falling, falling for her.

She seems to have an invisible touch yeah
She reaches in, and grabs right hold of your heart
She seems to have an invisible touch yeah
It takes control and slowly tears you apart.

If you have figured out the song then it's time to hook on to RhythmFish 21.5 - all through the month....

Rock On you junkies!
