The Bombay Royale - You Me Bullet Love - out on HopeStreet Recordings

The Bombay Royale You Me Bullet Love

You might remember Sote Sote Adhi Raat, the first taste of this album from The Bombay Royale, a bonkers Bollywood Disco track we played in our Block Party 2011 end-fo-the-year mix. Or the album opener, Monkey Fight Snake featured in our Bag of Goodies Vol.5 mix, which sounds like The Budos Band with tablas on acid in a Sergio Leone movie. Maybe you've heard our Friday Night Session mix for Andrew Jervis? We picked The Bombay Royale's "James Bond in Delhi" track The Perfect Plan for this one. We'll be playing their "Kill Bill in Rahjastan" title track You Me Bullet Love in the next Bag of Goodies mix and have even invited Australian record collector DJ MAnchild to do a Disco Dandia mix on Paris DJs showcasing the funky Indian music that had influenced the band. This is what Quentin Tarentino would produce is he was to do an original soundtrack to a film he would shoot in Bollywood. One of the records of the year or my name is not Lakshmanan!

The Bombay Royale - You Me Bullet Love

Press Release :
The Bombay Royale are dedicated to bringing music and mayhem of vintage Indian cinema back to the future, where it belongs. Their debut album You Me Bullets Love is a blend of haunting Hindi and Bengali vocals, pulsing deep funk and disco breaks and shimmering surf-a-delica. Expect huge horn riffs, wild spaghetti guitar, bustling tabla, screaming organs and all the synthesizers, sitars and strings that made the music of 1960s and 1970s Bollywood so electrifying. Starring vocalists Parvyn Kaur Singh as "The Mysterious Lady" and Shourov Bhattacharya as "The Tiger," You Me Bullets Love is the soundtrack to a story of espionage, excitement, extended dance sequences and the eternal power of true love.

The golden age of Bollywood was a riot of saturated color and dramatic excess and the music that accompanied it was unmatched in bizarre experimentation, deep sophistication and outright funky badness: a treasure trove for sample hungry hiphop heads and secretive, vinyl-obsessed funk collectors. Musical director Andy Williamson ("The Skipper") formed The Bombay Royale to bring the hidden musical gems of that lost era out into the light. The originators, people like R.D Burman, Asha Bhosle and Mohammed Rafi are still household names in India, but largely unknown in the outside world. The Bombay Royale is here to rectify that situation. You Me Bullets Love is for the neophytes and enthusiasts alike, a combination of vibrant original material and vintage Hindi superhits. Available on Gatefold LP, CD and digital worldwide, You Me Bullets Love sounds like no other record you will buy this year.

You Me Bullets Love is out now through HopeStreet Recordings via Fuse Music Group, and worldwide in May.
