Multiple images of The Combustibles are included in “Standing By” – the new six-part documentary of independent music in India produced by OML and Red Bull Media House – which premiered on October 14, 2015. Episodes 1 & 2, in particular, focus on the period leading up to the 60s and then the 70s and include great images of the band – including the memorable performance at the “Woodstock” show at the Eros Theater in Bombay when the movie was being shown in January 1971. The most recent Episode 5 also incorporates photos of the band on stage.
“The Beatles trip to India fanned the flames of an already growing hippie culture round the world. This would spiral out of control with the Woodstock festival in 1969 and the film about it that was released the year after. The documentary was screened in India and often had local bands perform on the theater stage before the film was played.” Standing By – Episode 1
