Rhymes With Possum

Punjabi Punk baby!

I'm hoping this post is appropriate for this community...
So let us reintroduce ourselves.. we are The Kominas, an all Punjabi punk band. We just completed 2 more songs. First is a rerecording of our first single, "Rumi was a Homo". The track is a total Anti-hatred explosion of Gayness. A lot of flamboyance, you can definetly tell our Guitarist is a Pathan! It's a playful and flirtatious jab at the bigot Siraj Wahaj, who said he'd burn down a Gay Mosque as soon as it was built... And also a little uppercut on Asma Hasan (Muslims for Bush - ew).

Then there's a goofy ISNA RAWK tune, based on a Bismillah rhyme we learned at the age of 5. Hopefully you'll dig the tunes... Give them a listen by clicking on this banner:

We'll hopefully be playing out some time this summer! We've got drummers and dhol players to try out! Baley Baley Oi Oi Oi!

Wow. Tres weird. But not that bad. I was laughing to death with the Rumi song (and that's just wrong, but still funny). I liked the beat of the second song. but the 3rd one just confused me. I was expecting a bit more to the song than just the chant you learned in school. But i guess its weird and kind of creepy the way its sung and could probably carry it self. didn't know if you wanted my feedback but hey...there it is...
All opinions are valid! That ISNA RAWK thing was just supposed to be silly...

The second one's beat was provided with a "Suitcase Tabla" and bottle of medicine we used as shakers.

And Rumi was supposed to be sung as gay as possible. I was all.. swayin' my hips and bobbing my head around like some ultraqueen when singing it.

thanks for listening to all of them!
