Live & Unedited recording of the Alliance Francaise show
A performance as part of a series of shows by Eddie of Exodus who is promoting Chennai bands immensely. Kudos Eddie \m/. The opening band was "Touch Wood", four piece jazz rock band that were relativity young. search on youtube.com to listen to them. Crowd was pretty sparse mainly due to non - publicity but that didn stop LBG from putting on a good show.

Listen to the whole show live & unedited from an MP3 player. LBG have started this initiative as a way to analyze the show to make it better & record the new material from Triplicane to review. Broken Toys & Tricky Place are some of the new tunes. So keep checkin in to listen to all our shows and maybe some jam recordings.

LBG's 3rd Release to be titled " TRIPLI ^ CANE "

LBG have finally chosen a name for the third Album
TRIPLICANE or is it TRIPLICAINE or with a K (still needs to be finalized)

Triplicane is a place in Chennai which would probably be known to most chennaiites as a crowded congested area with wall to wall dirty buildings, heavy traffic, small lanes & screaming street vendors at every corner...hmmm y name an album after a place like that?? well the band wants to go 'LOCAL' this time giving people they're take on Triplicane showing that there's alot more than meets the Eye.

Step into Triplicane by foot or cycle rickshaw and you'll probably find anything you need(as long as you search) "you can get anything there...from 'ICE HOUSE' to the cigarette shops to the tricky lanes with kebbas shops to the most beautiful women (trust me they're there...you just don see them... and we're not talking about hookers) The place is such a world in itself that you wont find anywhere else unless you really take the time notice & look." says Arjun.

"That's the whole concept ..Sometimes when you really want something, it just might be under your own nose... it's up to you when your going to do something about it" says Praveen

No news on when the release might be yet...but the band has decided to acquire some new gear from the Line 6 POD Series as well as a Yamaha Electronic kit to start mock recordings.

"We dont want to rush into it this time... we're going to be setting up a studio/Practice room at our place and start recording each session to listen to it and make it sound better... We're also to doing a series of surveys to see which song people like from everyone who matter ranging from our fans to and fellow musicians... I dont think anytime before mid 2009 - says Avneet

So there you have it....Mid 2009...It might take a while to hear it on CD, but the band has started performing 4 - 5 of them to the public audience and has been receiving a positive response. "Tricky Place", "Monster", "Mr. Bill Sticker will be Prosecuted", "Broken Toys" and Maynard's favorite "Love Song" are some of the songs being performed to fans & friends.

LBG’s First EP “Blue Butterfly Express” (1999)  Lost but Now Found

Blue Butterfly Express was one of LBG’s first attempt to put the music out, way back in 1999…. Although it was never officially announced or released at that time due to change of members (namely the vocalist). However, LBG did post the music up onto www.mp3.com where “Lost in Space” (the bands only Instrumental till date) hit the “Top 50 Rock songs” Charts in 1999.

“…At a time when CD’s were expensive jewels and Studios were recording on A-DAT, No one really wanted to buy CD’s” – Says Avneet. So Only 10 CD’s & 30 Tape copies were made and given to close family and friends. All were thought lost until yesterday when Praveen who was cleaning up his closet found the last copy.

The EP was to showcase the music that was put together by Arjun & Avnith . The Vocalist at that time was “Reggie” Govindias & If you listen to the song “Doll” closely you’ll hear Praveen playing the flute in the background. Blue Butterfly Express was Arjun’s first go at the Microphone claiming Reggie couldn’t get the feel and “Election Song” & Doll were Reggie’s contribution to the E.P. House of cards & More than the Colour Green (Officially Released on the Wallet) were the two ballads that were included and were a big hit with the Ladies.
