In the beginning, the four piece band hailing from the hills of Aizawl, Mizoram was formed in 2005, as a simple local band for doing and performing covers and other local gigs. But, however during the fall of last year 2006’s, their pathway took an adverse turn when they discovered their creativity for songwriting and arrangements; hence-onwards – performing and managing their own original compositions with having the crowd go wild with their killer performances everywhere.
Within a short span of a few months, they were able to release their E.P called “Rhythm of a Revolution” with no signing on recording labels as such. They are currently working for a Full-Length album though.
The band would like to call their music as Junk rock since it contains progressions of various genres of music which ranges from – jazz, blues, reggae, funk and to extreme metal. Therefore, in the end their music makes out to what can all be truly unified and be signified as a pure “Rock & Roll”.

The band was formed way back in the late nineties – the co-founding members being Chris & Ritchie (Ex-Drummer) and the duo was later joined by Terry on the bass and that’s how PBL came into existence.
However, the band went through a lot of changes in the line-up but of late with a permanent line-up and also with the joining of Jerry (drummer), the music of the band has taken a different turn and so too the different taste of music of the members has given the band a new sound so to say more – original.
The band has performed many gigs and has even represented the State in the National Concert held in New Delhi, 2003 but of all the gigs performed the Opening Act for the “Sepulturra Tour” tops it all – “Its like winning a Coveted Prize” – Of late the band is working on their debut album scheduled to be released next summer.
