A quarter of a century in existence and still going strong, is Alter Egoz, of the multiple avatar transformations.
This week's Thursday evening gig at the Hard Rock Cafe will feature the city's popular rock band Alter Egoz performing live. The members of the band are Lokhi, Vijay and Anshu on the guitars, Badri on the drums, and Ajay and Bhargavi on vocals.
The band collectively has around 25 years of performing experience, and has been through quite a few reincarnations. It started off as 'Katalog' in 1986, and reformed as 'Zeus' in 1990. It continued as 'Zeus' till it changed to '40-Year Itch' in 2000, and concentrated predominantly on the musical trends of the music of '50s and the '60s. It became 'Alter Egoz' in 2001, and has been inspired by the newer trends in music (a shift back to rock, blues, alternative and reggae) since then.
Originally, all their 6 compositions were made to English lyrics, but due to a possibility of a few of them being threatened to be used for films, they have made them bi-lingual. For example, Conscious (Shakti) and Belly (Naya Naseeb) are in English as well as Hindi.
