THE LEGENDARY MUD ENSEMBLE AT LAST BRINGS OUT THAT LONG AWAITED CD.

The album is a compilation of selected songs between 1993 and 1999.

Anyone that went to their concerts in the 90s know that every concert was a viceral experience for itself. Every live show was an event.

Theire filmic sensibility on stage ,and use of performance art, ritual, voodoo and alchemy made them one of the most important art /music movements of its kind in the 90s in south africa.
Even though apartheid had finally come to an end ,we where all still full of the scars of that time.There wasnt a person in Yeoville ,Kensington,Hillbrow or Troyville or Soweto that hadnt seen it all .

Their legendary concerts at Bobs bar or The Fig gallery are still to this day ingrained on our consciousness.

Never will the rest of the world know or understand how we lived, even though they arrogantly claim too. Today a few of us still remain to tell the tail of Johburg, no Hollywood production will ever be able to catch it on film. The Mud Ensemble helped us reflect our heritage face our own downfalls and also see the beauty inherent in the grimey streets of Jozi.
