News from the Guyana Chronicle


Brutus launches new single


Roger Gordon hands an autographed copy of the new CD to Maxim, the main man at Club Sky 7.

The name of their new single may be “Far removed from the scene”, but local rock group Brutus is hopping mad that they are, in fact, being left out from the GT music scene.

According to manager Richard Singh, the release of the nine minute plus single consolidates Brutus long-established position as a serious musical group in Guyana and it is time the establishment starts listening. In a passionate call during a simple launch ceremony held at Sidewalk Café on Wednesday, Singh petitioned local radio music station 98.1 to start taking local rocker seriously or they would possibly consider protest action. Seriously!

Richard’s take on the need for more recognition of Brutus in particular and local rock music in general was echoed by band founder and crazy ass drummer, Roger Gordon who surprisingly had a shirt on during the press conference. Kurt Kerret also spoke which was surprising since we previously thought he communicated only through his guitar.

Band members Rory Rambarran and Roger Deygoo looked a bit too stoned to comment much but then again they always look too stoned. Weekend Confidential of course had a nice listen to the single and it was hot. Deygoo wasn’t growling and the rest of the band delivered. CDs are on sale at just $1,000 and with all that immortal instrumental on there, it is well worth it. The official launch party is this weekend at Club Sky 7.

Carolan Lynch


Proof that maturity, motherhood and marriage do not have to hold a woman down, popular model and former dancer Mrs. Carolan Lynch is going to be off this weekend to represent Guyana at the Miss World pageant, slated for St. Petersburg, Russia. The 31-year-old mother of one will spend a couple of days in New York before she heads to Russia to take part on the pageant which last from the 14th to the 29th. Here Carolan strikes a pose in a sports bra and skirt; and in her national costume.

Sagar launches first single

Local singer Amanda Peters on the cover of the single “Paradise”.

Song writer/Composer, Rohan Sagar, has successfully launched his first single song, “Paradise”, sung by Amanda Peters.

Sagar said he met the beautiful Amanda Peters through their mutual love for music and that is why she was selected as the singer for his song. According to the songwriter, he likes her “fresh, melodious voice”.

Peters has been singing for years, first in church, and then in 2005 at a flood relief concert in 2005. The recording was done at the WWMP Studio at Front Road, West Ruimveldt, La Penitence.

Sagar said Philip Williams built the tracks for the song, a mixture of classical format fused with rhythm and blues. The song writer/composer told WC that he is working on a music video of ‘Paradise’.

He is also working on another song, “Take me to the Rodeo”, inspired by cowboys in Lethem and is a mixture of country and Latin. In addition he is working on a guitar project and did a five-month music research programme with the Ministry of Amerindian Affairs.
