Formed in 1984, Mumbai’s Indus Creed (formerly known as Rock Machine) is one of India’s pioneering rock acts. Not only did the band open doors for artists around the country to write, record and perform their own music, but they also shaped the sound of Indian rock. The group paved the way for other prominent rock names such as Pentagram and Zero too.
With various line-up changes, a brief hiatus and comeback, as well as four albums under their belt, the band now consists of original members: vocalist-guitarist Uday Benegal, guitarist Mahesh Tinaikar and keyboardist Zubin Balaporia who are usually joined by several drummers and bassists from the scene at gigs including stickmen Andrew Kanga and Jai Row Kavi (from blues rockers Blackstratblues) and low-end holders Krishna Jhaveri (of prog-rock band Skyharbor) and Adil Kurwa (from rock outfit The Koniac Net and pop-rock band The Colour Compound). With a dose of nostalgia, groovy rock anthems and ditties, sit back and tune into our pick of the top 10 Indus Creed songs.
