The Bombay Twist - The Bombay Royale

from the album The Island Of Dr. Electrico (2014)

The Bombay Twist is a Bollywood take on classic '60s party tunes.  Do the mash potato, that kind of stuff.  It is performed by The Bombay Royale, a band from Melbourne, Australia that I am dying to check out.

Sitars, horns, and a beat that just won't quit.  Add to it an MC saying thing like "do the twist, like this" and a cackling woman and you are ready for your next psychedelic experience.  Enjoy.

  1. I really dig Bombay Royale! The retro big band sound integrated with that Bollywood panache coupled with a Zappaish precision. Cool!

  2. JB, If you like that one, definitely check out the title track - The Island Of Dr. Electrico - it will blow your mind.

  3. Didn't you blog a couple of years ago about these guys? Because I remember downloading the orignal Jan Pehchan Ho, with the badass dance video from the 60s. I even learned the lyrics! Mohammed Rafi was the coolest!
