Outlandish – No More (Junoon 20)
Salman from the world-famous Pakistani Rockband Junoon asked if we wanted to do a cover of one of their songs for their 20th Anniversary. The challenge was big and there was much to live up to. The first song we picked was Ghoom from their album Parvaas, Waqas all time favorite Junoon song, we also featured it on our Compilation Beats Rhymes & Life. The choice however fell on one of the only songs Junoon has done in English. The theme fit scarily too well to the situation in Pakistan and we chose tho give our take on it.
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.
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”.
