Bombay Calling

Filed under: News : August 30, 2006

bombay callingThe Mohawk Lodge’s Samir Mallal has been getting heaps of praise for his latest NFB documentary, Bombay Calling. For those of you in Vancouver, it’s playing the next 2 nights (Aug.30 & 31st) at the Pacific Cinematheque @ 7:30. The film features a track by Precious Fathers and is being released on DVD later this year.

Bombay Calling dives into a bustling world of late nights, long hours and hard partying to chronicle the rise of a new force in Indian society—the telemarketers. Fast-paced, gritty and fun, the film is a compelling inside look at youth culture in India. The 72-minute documentary features clips from Bollywood and a soundtrack by renowned DJ and composer Ramachandra Borcar (DJ Ram, Ramasutra), with additional music by LCD Soundsystem.

Writing Away…

Filed under: News, Poorfolk : August 4, 2006

It’s been far too long since we’ve updated this site, got some things on the go. First off, we finally got back the final copy of the video that our friend John Tate made for “worser than better” - it should be just a matter of time before it’s in rotation at much, so request it when you see it!

We have a show this Sunday night at the Rainbow bistro in Ottawa with a great local band called Kingston Fog ( It’s the long weekend so it’s actually more like a Saturday night and they sell bottles of 50 there!

Scotty and I are finally getting ready to finish off our long lost project called the Abjects, featuring Aiden Campbell on drums and Liam Maloney on bass, a kind of frenzied math rock. Savannah and I are also working on a quieter, acoustic project called “Winchester Warm,” which we will start recording real soon.

And we continue to write away for the new Poorfolk release, stay tuned for more…
