Ethnography?!?!

Try Muslim/Punjabi - PUNK ROCK
Baley Baley

I'm the vocalist for the American Punjabi/Bollywood Punk band, The Kominas.
we're all desi and are trying to meet more brown kids like us...


Oi! Oi! Oi!
Here's our site with a new song PAR DESI (done in a studio for once):


or simply: http://www.myspace.com/thekominas






The song is about how I got jumped by crazy straight edge hoodlums in Boston, who left me with a dislocated shoulder... wishing I was in Pakistan. Straight Edge kids in Boston are like the Jamat-e-Islam in Pakistan

Here are the lyrics:
Pardesi
Of feedback I've had my fill
Within a room lodged in a wall
Somewhere in central square
where men smash 6 stringed idols

Where do I point to blame,
when men scatter like moths?
There's no time for 99 names
Midst the noise and clamour

How'd I get here,
from a land with long monsoons?
In Lahore it's raining water
In Boston it rains boots.

Chorus:
They tried to snuff me out
But they only fueled the flame
Boots crushing my shoulders
where Angels chose not too remain

Ab Siraf Yadeh
Mein Rehti mera Des

(Translation: My homeland only exists in Memory)
feel free to add me on LJ or us on My Space :)
