Saddar Bazaar picture
Saddar Bazaar biography
Founded in the early 90s, Saddar Bazaar is a stoney-free acid folk combo from Bristols (UK) hugely inspired by the heavenly harmonies of indian droning raga. They released their first album back in 1995. This first effort provides a dynamic mixture of fuzzing acid rockin' chords and effervescent raga scales. The following albums will stress the absolute entranced acoustic aspect of their musical signature. Gorgeous, repetitive and ritualistic.

Saddar Bazaar Indo-Prog/Raga Rock

Review by Brendan

3 stars I am not sure if I would say 'Good, but not essential' - I would say 'worth checking out' - but I wouldn't rate it higher than three stars.

Do you remember the 90's? Remember the Techno? Check! Do you remember the whiny alt- rock? Check! Do you remember the rap? *sigh* check, and, do you remember the great Indo- prog albums being made. Check. No! Wait a minute... Indo-prog albums? Saddar Bazaar? Their keyboardist is called Banx after all... not that you'll notice him.

So, those distant-eyed tree-huggers were staging a comeback in the mid-90;s huh? Hooray! The 90's wasn't ALL bad you know, far from it. This here mix of Raga rock, garage rock and swamp rock is unbelievable (in the good, amazing sense, not in the 'dishonest' sense). Uhh... they weren't into varying their formula a lot. Ok, not at all, really. But what you have is some utterly enjoyable guitar jams, the stuff your ears love to chew on, providing you have a bit of patience.

The highlight is probably the 8-minute 'Garden of essence'. After three minutes you want to write it off as repetitive, but, it's starting to hook you, then they begin it, a slowly progressing ascent into spine-tingling joy, slide-guitar jams tantalising over an ever-increasing tempo that excites you more and more, until it reaches it's thrilling climax, as such pleasure! Then there's the burst of energy, 'Freedom Rider', hippy stuff, man!

Now maybe they should add vocals or something to the tracks that never really seem to go anywhere, like 'Sukoon', but the only real low points are 'Bakara', which is brief anyway, and the reflection, 2 LONG minutes of 'Sukoon' being played backwards, which screams filler!!

Anyhow, not bad. Great stuff, but maybe some arrangement varying to make it more interesting or appealing. Three stars no doubt.

Thanks to Kazuhiro for the artist addition. and to sheavy for the last updates
