This time I would like to quote about "Full throttle" the rockband from Calicut Medical College

Band Members
Vocals : Mathew (moosa), Rohan (Chikku), Sajna
Lead Guitar : Bimal (booboo)
Bass Guitar : Sabu (Saab)
Keyboard : Arunlal (Laal)
Drums : Sunil (Vatakara)

Formed in the year 1998, we were one among the best college rockbands in kerala at our time. Being medical students at that time, we had a tough time to find time for our rehearsals as well as shows and competitions. Our practice sessions used to start from about 5 to 7 days before the expected show, and it used to be from 10 pm to arond 3 am. I would like to comment on some of the shows we did, the events as well as some funny moments
FULL THROTTLE The history speaks
B-zone 1998
To quote Moosa’s Words: “The only flop show we ever did”.
Surabhi- Staff Students night 5th July 2000
One of our best performances to date, we brought the house down—with Bimal & Annan’s “Guitar Duel”.
We Introduced “Black Masquerade” for the 1st time.
Saab missed all the fun- Joseph filled in for him
Mathrubhumi Kalotsavam
Mathrubhumi made us!!!! We became the hottest self-made college Rockband in Kerala & “Seven Bridges Road” became our national anthem. But mostly we gave REC, Providence, Bennett, & Aswin terrible nightmares!
· MB Kalotsavam 2000 at Gulfar, Kochi on Nov 28 & 29, 1999
We entered the regionals half heartedly. Imagine the surprise when we turned out winners. However, we were only runners up in the finals at Kochi. Our “magic” was well accepted by the crowd. Mathrubhumi people were very much impressed.
· MB Kalotsavam 2001 (Regionals: Oct 28, 2000, Finals: Dec 1,2,3,2000 at Kollam)
Sallu left us.. Cecil & Sona joined the family .
We were ready for a battle this time.
”Scarborough Fair” & “Seven Bridges Road” made us winners at both Regionals & finals.
· MB Kalotsavam 2002 (Regionals: Nov 29, 2001Finals: Dec 14, 15,16,2001 at Kochi)
This Mathrubhumi saw us running around desperately to form a proper team. Finally Padmini, Vydehi, & Neelima joined. However final yr exam tension caught on & we emerged runners up in the regionals. Provi were the winners in the regionals. Initially we had planned not to go for the finals as our exams were approaching. But the victory of Provi’s over us in the regionals made us desperate like anything... So we changed our plans and made up for the loss by beating Provi in the finals. We turned out to be the winners. Provi’s were the runners up. {Finally they got something at the finals!!}. Bennett & Aswin were doing a rain dance all the time. A little bit of that paid off. They weren’t happy about Provi being runners up but probably they were relieved to have saved their face...
But the key event was getting one picture taken with Vasundhara Das at the closing ceremony!!!!
Mint 2000
Mint will always be remembered as Sunil’s an Sajna’s worst nightmare. He broke the sticks & then the drum skin during rehearsal. She sang a horror ‘sweet child’ (thus was born AxlCrow!). And in between the show we were asked to beat it to accommodate a fashion show in the prog list! What nerve!! You missed the mayhem, Chikku!
Mazzini 2000.Sep 29th
Mazzini was in fact a 41st batch picnic trip to Kuttippuram MES Engg College. REC struggled to maintain the competition against us in the rock show. To our dismay the judges {one of them was Aswin who had trained the REC band}showed pity & asked them to share the 1st place with us.
Ragam2001 Nov 4th 2001
REC’’s ultimate dream was to beat us on their campus… We turned the tables & bashed them
mercilessly on their campus. Such a simple victory.. Our range was from the great Scarborough Fair to Dreamtheater’s “Surrounded”. One Half hour performance beat their 45min parade by a mile!! Mathew got the best vocalist and Sunil came out to be the best drummer.. We had Bennett tearing his hair out!! This was also THE prog that boosted us to enter the Autumn Muse competition
The 1st national level competition we participated in! Sajna missed it... Laal was the best Keyboardist.. Saab was the best Bassist & Sunil got special mention as Drummer… Hey! We got 2nd !!! Our self Comp, made in just 2 days, also got special mention.. It was very much Funny and nice to see the judges finding it hard to follow the timing of the song.. It was even more funny to see their happiness when one of them finally got it !!!.. We really felt Proud... Pity.. no one remembers the notes, chords or the lyrics now as it wasn’t written anywhere else other than in our minds..
Euphoria- Nov 23, 24, 25 2000.
This was a Rock Festival for our college. The rock competition went down the drain in the rains on the inauguration day. But we made up for it with a live show in the auditorium... We also rocked the closing ceremony- the highlight being “Final count down crash” by Laal. It was also a Full throttle on stage and Full Bottle Of stage !!!
Live At Fortune
This was Booboo’s treat for getting a girlfriend! Though the rest of us opted for Hyson , Saab and Vatakara were adamant about “Fortune”( You know Why!) The two of them got high and insisted on singing... But we really surprised the Hotel’s “Boy Band”.
One Last Time –Feb 11th 2003
The last show we did as “Full Throttle”. It was a very emotional affair. Sunil flew to UK a few days later. We expected a catastrophic show considering the kind of practice sessions we had.. But it was a sell out..
Convocation 40th
It was a memorable show.. We also had guest artists from Guruvayurappan college based band – “Asthra”. It was the convocation of Booboo and Vatakara... Asthra will remember it their whole life as it was the first time their members were crushed by Osler and gang.. One of their member made a local comment on stage.. How dare they!!!
Convocation 41st
This was the show which put a full stop to the “ Full Throttle”. Sunil was replaced by Daya Shankar of Asthra. We had a decent show... Except for the one hour “Broken string festival” by Booboo... Sunil called in between the show from UK.. We really missed him... The whole show was dedicated to Our Great Drummer who was the fortitude of our Band.. It was also the convocating event of rest of the Full throttle.
