The night SRV and Joplin played the blues, together!!


Another great Saturday night (Dec 10). The night the blues rained down heavily on the capital. The night SRV and Joplin played the blues, together. Hard to believe, right!

Well, to tell you the bluesy truth, it was the Soulmate - the absolutely amazing, soulful, compact and immaculately blue... - the blues band from the heavenly green vales of Shillong.

Soulmate comprises of a rare breed of musicians who still believe in creating music for music's sake, devoid of chip generated sounds and effects, full of soul and feel - Rudy Wallang on guitar, Tipriti Kharbyngar on rhythm and vocals, Sam Shullai on drums, and Ferdy Dakkar on bass.

Presented by the British Council and the Rock Street Journal and misleadingly titled 'Late night at the British Council' (misleadingly 'cos some @#$% dame from the high council was hell bent on packing up the show since the time it started), Soulmate created absolute bluesy magic.

Rudy displayed amazing mastery over the guitar with a very pronounced Stevie Ray Vaughan feel. Listening to Tipriti with your eyes closed was like getting to hear Joplin live. By the way, Rudy got great vocals too. Sam and Ferdy showed what seasoned musicians are made of.

Soulmate's compositions were 'true blue' blues pieces to the last note, packed with feelings. The evening air was chilly, the crowd a bit thin, but the mood was happily blue. 


Someone whispered - Damn right they've got the blues! They did, mate...

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
