The Latest News On LBG

January 27th,

Republic Day 'FreedomJam', Pondicherry

After spending 2 months in the studio recording their 2nd Album 'Bad
Children' & 2 months of Gigging, The band was quite enjoying the peace and
quiet. BUT EVERYONE WAS READY TO ROCK once again when ‘Missing’ Maynard calls and says "Let's Play A SHOW".

LBG get booked by Pondicherry Tourism to perform by the port for 'Freedom Jam'.

The Department of Tourism had authorized 6 venues to be used to celebrate
republic day with music covering all genres ie: Indian Classical, Jazz & Rock.

It was an outdoor venue, Pretty big stage(when compared to the last venues), so
Lots of place to jump and that was something the band had been dying to do for a
long time. The other bands opening were Some Death Metal college band and 'Sevened'.

The show got delayed due to lack of crowd so only started at 8:00. The first
band played some Sepulture, Panthera & some of their own stuff. That’s when
whatever crowd that had come, started to leave. So the organizers had to ask
them to stop. The next band ‘Sevened’ were smooth covering Steely Dan, Rush,
Gary Moore & a couple of their originals.

So the crowd started coming back. NextUp was LBG all fired up to play a solid show. The crowd got instantly into the groove as LBG treated Pondy for the third time to Wrong & Revolution from the first album, followed by their 'Bad Children' set. After the 4th song LBG stray away from their set performing the much awaited song 'Money' (again from their first album).

The band was sadly informed that they could only play 2 more songs because it
was getting late and the cops were going to shut them down. It was then I saw
some one next to get up and go running towards the police. The Band played 2
songs Soma and had planned on ending with 2 Frequencies. It was during the song that the band Got the 'thumbs up' finish the set on one condition (from the
Cops) that 'Money' was played again (heh hehe Kick Ass!!). The request was
obliged and the Band finished their set, ending with everyone singing till the
last chorus!!

After the ‘Bad Children’ release , LBG were approached by MatchBox Studios, agreeing to professionally manage the band . Shiran, (Former Senior ORP Producer of SS Music) believes that they have what it takes and with

The Rising South

The Rising South is a string of live performances that LBG has been/ will be organizing in and around Chennai originally started as a part of the band’s tsunami relief and now taking on a higher purpose to
promote original music and original bands.

The Rising South concept essentially revolves around the idea of promoting meritorious original music and musicians distributed over South India. In the past a score of promo events had been organized in and around the city of Chennai and the concept is now ready to be taken on board a higher platform.

In keeping with recent trends among musicians and the mass audience represented by the ever increasing fan base for original Indian rock music, the Rising South provides the perfect dais for bringing excellent original music into the foreground and at the same time serve as a distinctive arena for sending out messages to the vast target
audience which essentially consists of Indian youth between the ages of 18 and 30.


LBG is being backed by a professional Advertising Agency in Chennai called


which provides assistance in all promotional activities (PR, Hoardings, Poster Design, E-mailers, SMS Messaging, Newspapers Ads)for all our, shows. We believe that it’s not just enough for a band to just come, play and then F@#k off… It’s a joint effort with the organizer to make sure that as many people come and watch the band performing.

MMU communications also has an Events Division and is planning on starting a Record Label with the aim to reach music to the masses through allMajor Music Stores in India.where they released their full length album on July 10th 2005. They have sold over 700
