Live, breathe, sleep Junoon
LAHORE – The trio was the heaviest thing that the Pakistani youth had ever come across. The hard, electric guitar riffs had sunk their talons in the minds of confused, angsty youth. Ali Azmat’s voice – oozing with power and machismo, but tinged with a haunting and yearning at the same time – crooned away songs of heartbreak, and belted out anthems of revolt against authority; Brian O Connell (a unique phenomenon of being a foreigner in a Pakistani band), a plucked placidly at his bass strings, cool as a cucumber, but producing some of the most solid bass-lines, while Salman Ahmed, who had once upon a time played for the Vital Signs, fiercely churned his guitars, almost to ear deafening level. It was an impeccable combination of gritty Pakistani rock – actual rock.
Junoon’s 20th Anniversary Album provides a platform for young musicians
LAHORE: With Junoon’s 20th anniversary on its way, several local and young artists have been invited to revamp the band’s songs for an exclusive 20th Anniversary Album. The upcoming album will be an opportunity for rising artists to flaunt their signature styles globally through Junoon’s platform. Salman Ahmad, Junoon’s stalwart guitarist, researched and then contacted bands and artists through email encouraging them to contribute to the album.
Sajid and Zeeshan to releasing their second album “The Harvest”
LAHORE – The refined two-man band from Peshawar, made up of singer-songwriter and guitarist Sajid Ghafoor and keyboardist and music producer Zeeshan Parwez, is releasing their second album The Harvest on September 10. While talking to Pakistan Today, Zeeshan Parwez unveils what listeners should expect from their album.
Celebration: 20 years of Junoon
KARACHI: Junoon may not be a part of Pakistan’s mainstream music after Ali Azmat calling it quits in 2005, but lead guitarist and founder Salman Ahmad believes it’s “time to put the ‘Junooni’ spirit back into your lives”.
