We also insist on telling you about our these two odd FOUNDER MEMBERS and some special folk from 'those' days ...
Prashant 'shetty' Bahadur ... founder, initial guitarist with, no wait, even before Sonam ... when we first got a-jammin' that june of ' 91 ... quit while the going was good and is presently "with" the supposed ball of life etc, playin it in Mumbai...
whatever that ball is ... Rahul 'mallu' Malhotra has always had a bigger 'un of those ... firstest ever drummist with parikrama those KMC days ... rehearsals are never the same without him :-( Docked in Kobe(Japan) anow ..
.. as Ex-Drummers and/if/or on Percussions .
. One big Dilip Ramachandran
Fella's who've been part of the parikrama that parikrama's been ... all dem' as rhythm guitarists !!!
K Christopher was with us in college as part of the MUSOC society and also later as axeman for bands like Calamity, Xpyre, GravyTrain .. till he finally caught the 'real world' train to become a lawyer.
Valentine Shipley joined us after Christopher left sometime in 1993. A very talented and accomplished Singer, Guitarist, Composer in his own right, he's currenty pursuing his musical interests in the Delhi and Mumbai circuits.
Stephen Namchyo or Steve as he goes, is one Guitar player of exceptional feel and control ... and the whole of North East India can vouch for that. With us though for only a few months in the winter of 1994-95, he left us impressed with his style!
Vipin Mishra joined us when Steve left, ironically, just before our maiden North-East Tour ... back in 1995 that was. Our youngest recruit then, fed on a diet of Led Zeppelin and his Dad's army rations went on to become the biggest , most sinewy member of p a r i k r a m a. We grew together for 5 years and perhaps he grew the most. Both in size as well as proficiency with his instrument. A successful Composer / Arranger / Guitarist today .. we still do miss him on stage.
