Teddy Boy Kill, founded in 2008 with Ashhar Farooqui a.k.a ToyMob - A sonic collusion and connection inside the underground music fracas of New Delhi resulted in Teddy Boy Kill. An electro-punk duo, emerging as a distinct hard hitting sound with provocative lyrics and seminal imagery, that inspired, thrilled and shocked many. From underground clubs to exotic islands, to raves, to swanky and shady arenas to international festivals, Teddy Boy Kill traversed five intense years touring and mapping allover India and into China, Sweden, Germany and La Reunion Islands - The duo produced two albums, numerous remixes and five 'pill fix' videos. T.B.K remained outside the 'nepotism and elitism' of the 'scene' instead hitting at reality with a steady onslaught of catchy singles, stark videos, bizarre imagery. Now branded as "one of the most brash and autodidactic sparks of Indian electronica" by NME in 2012. Teddy Boy Kill is in hibernation!
