Depot 48 & Stiff Kittens Inc are quite proud to present:
THE JASS B'STARDS
A thouroughly unique sounding dance oriented three piece psychedelic jazz-punk groove band with a Latin twist. Based in New Delhi, they have performed together in their current set up for over seven years.
Their songs have a strong jazz type groove but often set to dance friendly repetitive trance like structures. They also form the core musicians of popular dance group The Ska Vengers.
If musical similarities need to be cited they probably would not mention Soft Machine, Kraftwek, Can, Stereolab, Philip Glass, Ramsay Lewis.
Stefan Kaye - electric organ, percussion, vocals
Nikhil Vasudevan - drum set
Tony Bass - bass guitar
