Bombay Royale – "You Me Bullets Love" – [Hope Street Recordings]

Sir Cumference   10/30/2019   A Library, CD

The Bombay Royale is an Australian outfit that mixes Indian classical and folk styles with western popular music. This release, from 2012, is a fake soundtrack to a fake movie and is ’60s Bollywood meets spy meets surf, with a hint of spaghetti western. Jaan Pehechan Ho might be familiar, as the original version, from the ’60s mystery film Gumnaam, was featured in the film Ghost World (and more heavily in the trailer which was shown at a recent Psychotronix!) Sote Sote Adhi Raat is another cover, this time from a ’70s film called Habari. The rest are original compositions, performed in Hindi, Bengali and English. Phone Baje Na was the single release. However, my favorite is Mahindra Death Ride which is a groovy pop number that suddenly has a marching band going through the middle of it.
