For the uninitiated the composers of the chOOns on today's show are also master craftsmen who throughout the late 70s and 80s (and beyond) combined their off-the-wall ideas and batshiz expectations using craft, experimental technology and a trusted team of participants to help concoct some truly bizarre local produce. Operating throughout the low budget productions and B-Movies within the Tamil micro music industry, Shankar-Ganesh brought their euphoric electrified music to a small yet adoring band of film-goers.
The 4th volume of BollychOOn!! reveals more tasty treats from mr. chOOn's ongoing obsession with retro Tamil Pop – focusing largely on Shankar-Ganesh's mid-1980s output as the crack composing duo add freak pop fuel to the flickering flame of South India's Kollywood film industry, while embracing domestic synthesiser technology and fusing the power of electro and synth-pop to the Carnatic canon.11:00 - 13:00
