Remember Seby and the Wings? The band that used to play at every other college festival in the capital? What’s the group up to now? If you want to know trivia like this and more, there could be some help at hand. RSJ magazine’s website rsjonline.com is creating a platform for India’s non-pop musicians by building an archive of all Indian bands from the ’60s onwards. The process of putting such facts together is obviously long and arduous. "But the magazine already had a basic database that had been collected over the last decade," says publisher editor Amit Sahgal. What also made the task easier was the fact that the bands form a very close-knit community which helped in tracking down some little-known and forgotten groups and establishing a ready network of musicians. The idea now is also to make the database interactive. So there will be a message board on which readers can post their comments on the various performances and festivals. That should make for a rocking site.
