We get asked this a lot. So what are you guys upto? Any gigs coming up? What new material have you written?
Its what fans, well wishers, supporters and frankly even we want to know. So apart from actively setting up practice sessions on a weekly basis, working on a master song list of cover songs that we would like to cover - a list that grows with every show, taking inputs from the audience, request slips that we get passed on in shows and quite frankly building on the library of songs that people just love to hear live. This is one thing that Core has been able to deliver and has had its finger on the pulse for a long time. Three years in the making, this list helps us put on great set lists out there, surprising people and pleasing them at the same time. Songs that traditionally are not played in the 'Pub-Circuit', taking cover songs and putting a twist to them has been the hallmark signature of Core 304.
Never wanting to sit still, or rest on the last shows applause, the team at Core is always curious and inquisitive on how to make the next song different. How do we 'Core-ify' the next cover, is the usual banter in the band on most practice sessions. Whether it be the start, breaks in the middle, melodies from old Hindi movies woven into Rock songs or endings that dont sound anything like the original, however fit in there as if they were meant to be - almost like an ending that never was!!.........and building on the response we get for each twist. Some work, some kinda dont work. So its an evolutionary process and like all evolutionary process you live and learn. There is no MBA in Evolutionary Process at Harvard that we could find, so we just live it.....and roll with it, coz its just Rock and Roll, but we like it !!.
