    New Moorcock Musical.

    I've heard that one of Moorcock's early works is to be made into a Bollywood film.His 'The golden Barge' is being given the lively Indian treatment.The only change to the story is that the title is now 'The Golden Barji'. :lol:

        Whats with this 'Bollywood' craze anyway?
        I don't mind traditional exotic indian music though.
        The Sitar is cool. You can also reproduce the effects on e-guitar through an echo effect..

              It's a thought.

              I'd like to get some fusion going with Industrial and the Mongolian Morinxuur, backed by Xoomi mouth-music.

              Sadly, it would sound like doggydoos.

                Simple - the Indian film industry was in a bit of crisis, not making enough money at home - so what to do? Export the product and promote it in the West! Worked a treat. Even Andrew Lloyd Blubber cashed in on it.

                PS Before it got hip, though, did anyone see Sam Fox's Bollywood version of 'Touch Me, I want to feel your body'? That's about as close you're likely to get to a Hawkwind connection (a Bollywood version of Sam Fox singing 'Silver Machine' would be just too mind-blowing!)

                    There was a Woolworth's cover version done on an LP -- remember those 'Twelve Great Hits of 1649' type albums ? It came close to a Sam Fox Bollywood version. My enthusiasm is for movies like Devda, which use colour and light in imaginative ways. I might be prepared to add a musical sequence in which Elric breaks into song in the middle of a gigantic battle scene. If Roy Rogers could do it, so can we.

                      Absolutely.

                      Just as Ian Hendry and June Ritchie, as Albert and Treasure, go into the Dance Of The Consumer Durables towards the end of Live Now, Pay Later.

                      Works for me.
