Brainchild of Ananth Menon (guitarist, Galeej Gurus), and Ganesh Krishnaswamy (former bassist/vocalist, Kryptos), Parachute XVI was conceptualized as a band that was to allow them to combine their love for improvisation, the blues, and unconventional rhythm patterns. The duo went to work immediately, and wrote a few tunes, and recruited Snehal Pinto (former keyboardist, Galeej Gurus), and drummer Sachin Moogi (ex-Mad Zoya, IF).

Brainchild of Ananth Menon (guitarist, Galeej Gurus), and Ganesh Krishnaswamy (former bassist/vocalist, Kryptos), Parachute XVI was conceptualized as a band that was to allow them to combine their love for improvisation, the blues, and unconventional rhythm patterns. The duo went to work immediately, and wrote a few tunes, and recruited Snehal Pinto (former keyboardist, Galeej Gurus), and drummer Sachin Moogi (ex-Mad Zoya, IF). Pinto comes from a heavily jazz-influenced background, and draws inspiration from artists like the Beatles, Weather Report, Steely Dan, etc. His background in electronics probably helped make him the sonic wizard that he is – and distorted organ tones with wah-wah screeches are his signature sounds.

Although Moogi hadn’t picked up the sticks in close to a decade, the chance to play again was too tempting, and his calm, steady and no-frills approach makes him the perfect foil for the trio’s occasional forays into mayhem. He doesn’t believe that one particular band can be the only source of inspiration for a musician, and listens to a variety of music – from Soundgarden to Steely Dan. Parachute XVI are currently recording their first EP titled Sodium Trail and the Current Beantown Voice, which is being recorded at Thermal And A Quarter bassist Rzhude David’s home studio. The EP will feature five tunes that the band have written and will be commercially available from June '09 onwards. The band is based out of Bangalore, India and fits themselves into a genre called 'Progadelic-Blues-Rock'. Listen to the preview of the EP here: www.myspace.com/parachutexvi Read more on Last.fm.
