An Ode to Thermal by Viren Joseph
I felt like writing. The thought of work is making me want to throw up. :-[
Heard a couple of thermal’s songs after so long, so, ladies and gentlemen…
The Sound of Thermal’s Quarter
A Dash of jazz-funk, smart lyrics disguised in a doo-woppy scat, mixed with that special shade of Malayali-Blues, that deep purple coconut thatch, those feelings on a full moon night, lots of jam, and for good measure of the 4/4 variety, Mals. The end result – a mother-of-pearl spectrum of heart wrenching guitar solos and meaningful rhythms. The kind that make you want to head bang, slowly, churn out air guitar improvs at traffic lights, drag nights and anywhere you can say “got a light?”.
In short, quite simply, What Rock Should Always Sound like.
Influenced By: Pearl Jam, Deep Purple, Steely Dan, The general genre of the Blues, Really Classy Rock, Jazz Music With Lots of Guitars Bits, and of course… Excellent Thorun.
Viren – doubt we could’ve said it better. Thanks mate!
