(A disclosure: Rishu Singh, who manages ennui.BOMB along with Aditi Ghosalkar, is a friend and colleague of mine. However, I’am not posting about We ARE The Scene 2 because of that. ennui.BOMB is honestly into some good work in the alternative and punk rock music scene in India. Changing the way rock musicians are received in our country is not easy and I feel ennui.Bomb needs and deserves every bit of support that it can get.
I am just doing my bit.)
