3 Question: Peter Cat Recording Co Folk band, New Delhi

Peter Cat Recording Co

1. Peter Cat Recording Co’s (PCRC) music is like a rewind to the 1960s and ’70s, with traces of sounds by The Beatles and Roxy Music. Is PCRC an attempt to revive the sound of that era? How would you describe PCRC’s music?
PCRC is not at all about reviving the sound; this is what appeals to us as a band when we get down to jam. Between the four members we have a bunch of acts with a wide variety of sounds. Lifafa, Jamblu, Begum are few acts that are pet projects of the band members. They range from Electronica to Ambient to Disco and Alternative Rock. The new album might just take it to some other level. The wide variety of genres we often jam around with doesn’t permit us to pick a genre. If it’s good to the ears it good to play.

2. Could you tell us a bit about the current line-up of Peter Cat Recording Co, and who plays what role in it.
The roles are pretty much song-defined. For some songs Karan is on the keys / harmonium; for Hindi tracks Rohan plays the keys. Besides the drums, all the equipment can be passed around the stage; otherwise in the jam room Suryakant and Kartik do play the drums.

3. Where can one purchase your albums from?
The songs are available on the website www.petercatrecordingco.com. After we are paid, we courier the CDs. Else it’s all over iTunes. Wall of Want is only available online with no physical copies.
