The Last Analog Generation came two years after the release of Blackstratblues’ last album. So far, they have had four album launch gigs in Bengaluru, Delhi, Mumbai and Pune and are looking to add a few more to the itinerary. Guitar genius, Warren Mendonsa and friends are looking forward to set the ‘stage on fire’ with their new album at the third edition of the Bacardi NH7 Weekender, Meghalaya.
How does the new album sound live?
It’s translating really well, considering it was written with live performances in mind. We are really looking forward to playing the new songs in Shillong!
Would you consider this as one of your most well received work?
Every album seems to have had a positive response, but this is the first time an album of ours has reached the top of the all-India iTunes charts!
The album was released two years after your last album. What took so long?
Long? This was quick by our standards! Seriously though, when one is attached to a creative work from conception to completion, you need to take breaks to refresh and avoid over-saturation.
Any fond memories from the Shillong Weekender, 2015?
Yes, the general camaraderie hanging out with fellow musicians and watching The Wailers.
How does it feel to come back and play at Bacardi NH7 Weekender Meghalaya again?
It feels like a homecoming of sorts, considering we have been a part of it from the very first edition.
