The Superfuzz
The Buzz: They are high on the lure quotient for their sound and impressive stage presence and can almost immediately get you zapped into what they are playing. Undoubtedly it’s their sound that really gets them and the crowd going. With grungy, chaotic melodies and good self compositions, the Superfuzz took concrete shape as a band sometime in 2004 and have climbed the popularity ladder rapidly.

The Highlights:
• Winners of Channel V Launchpad, 2007, the band will be playing at the Hard Rock Café in New York.
• They won the Campus Rock idols in the year 2005 and subsequently got a chance to open for Bryan Adams.
• They were winners at the Great Indian Rock in 2006

The Record Q & A
(Nikhil Rufus, bassist of the band answers the questions)

TR: How did the band come together?
The Superfuzz: Sanchal and I are from the same school in Delhi and that’s how we met. In the ninth grade, a friend and I started teaching Sanchal how to play the guitar. Music was a common passion and we gelled well, forming a band called Copperstoned. This was way back in 2000. Aditya joined us two years ago.

TR: What is the story behind the name of your band?
TS: The name comes from a guitar distortion pedal used by Jimi Hendrix. We got it from there and then stuck to it.

TR: Tell us about each member of the band, their musical background and personality.
TS: The band consists of:
Sanchal ~ vocals and guitars: He is very goofy and anti-social; actually, anti-social is ‘the’ word. That just describes him completely.
Aditya ~ drums: He has this whole mysterious demeanour about him and chicks find him quite hot.
Nikhil ~ bass: I’m the extrovert in the group. I make friends easily and do the talking mostly. I’m also supposed to be charming (laughs; people call him that).

TR: For someone who has never heard of you, which of your songs would be the best introduction to the band?
TS: Our original composition ‘What I really think’ defines the band’s sound. It’s a very pop song, radio-friendly, and we are attached to the song because that’s the first song we ever recorded. The crowd always sings along to this number.

TR: Which bands are you heavily influenced by?
TS: We are influenced by a lot of 70s bands including Black Sabbath, a couple of indie bands and we also like listening to White Stripes and the likes.
