The Scene is TAAQ’s 6th Studio album, 2nd concept album after Jupiter Cafe (2002), and 1st album with new bass player Leslie Charles.
A wry, tongue-in-cheek commentary on the Indian indie ‘scene’ and the various characters that populate it, The Scene comprises ten tracks. With titles like The Sponsors Backed Out, Like Me, MEDs (Medicated Electronic Dance), My Funny Turpentine, Going to Abroad and Dig the Chicks, this album covers new ground in subject matter and sonic landscape. Keyboards, horns, accordions and even an electric Sitar show up on the recording – all played live by front man Bruce Lee Mani in some mysterious way!
