VER VAN DIE OU KALAHARI
All tracks were recorded live onto two tracks at Shifty Studio in May 1987. I wanted the atmosphere of the recording to be just like the demo of these songs that Andre had sent me. So when he came up from Cape Town to do the recordings, I pointed him to the microphone, switched on the tape recorder and went and drank tea for an hour and a half. Apart from the kak quality raps that were taken from that original cassette, what you have in your hands is what happened in that fateful session, puisies and all.

Johannes Kerkorrel en die Gereformeerde Blues Band

EET KREEF

EET KREEF Cover Art

Slashing their way out of the Nationalist Party ideology, the GBB charted the wide open spaces of a new Afrikaner rebellion. This time the insurrection was a musical one, with the GBB as rock & roll outlaws slinging guitars and stinging criticism against the laager mentality of volks kultuur and the apartheid way of life. Moving conventional rock into the realm of political theatre and satire as successfully as they did proved that if the GBB were to be seen as cultural upstarts, they were upstarts with a vision both innovative and lucid that could not be ignored.

2 reissue 7″singles from Bernoldus Niemand

 

Boksburg Bommer (7″ single)

Boksburg Bommer (7" single) Cover Art

1.
2.
This song was written before Gerrie Coetzees defence of the WBA boxing championship. Bernoldus went along to the weigh in and gave Gerrie the single hoping he’d play it before the match. He didn’t and was consequently knocked out.
__________________
The night the Boksburg Bomber struck: 

Coetzee’s reign as WBA champion was short. Amid more controversy, he lost to Greg Page in his first defence on December 1, 1984 at Sun City.
Ticket prices for the fight were at an all-time high for South Africa – a minimum of R100, and R450 for ringside seats.
Page, rated No 6 by the WBA, arrived in Johannesburg eight days earlier than scheduled to prevent efforts by the US anti-apartheid lobby to block his visit.
Coetzee was the overwhelming favourite. Most critics predicted a win inside the distance and Coetzee was the betting favourite at 10 to 1.
However, the champion was knocked out in a sensational finish in the eighth round.

A major row erupted over the duration of the last round. The pay-off punches from Page came at a time when his manager, Janks Morton, was shouting to the time-keeper that the round was over.
Coetzee had been down for the first time after the bell in the sixth round when Page caught him with a right that saw him sink to his knees.
In the seventh round, a barrage of punches put the South African down for the mandatory eight count.
Towards the end of the eighth, Coetzee was beginning to outbox the challenger. Then Page landed a left hook to the jaw that left Coetzee flat on his back – 3 minute 50 seconds after the start of the round.
The Coetzee camp claimed that the knockout was illegal and appealed to the WBA to have the result nullified. However, the appeal was turned down.
Despite the controversy, Page was a worthy winner.

Mr Mac and the Genuines

Mr Mac and the Genuines

At a time when the youth of Britian were rediscovering the fun and liveliness of 60’s  Jamaican Ska, and bands like Madness and the Specials were riding a wave of popularity, the Genuines decided to do a re-introduce  early “Goema” music of the Cape to a younger audience. Largely ignored and undiscovered this album has to rate as one of the finest South African fusion albums ever.
Listen in full fidelity to tracks from this album. Digitally remastered and available for download for the first time ever in Flac or high quality MP3 formats.
Samuel “Mr Mac” McKenzie (1924-1990) played banjo for over 50 years and was one of the last wave of the true exponents of “Goema” music of the people of Cape Town.
The magic of Mr Macs Banjo was part of the Cape’s musical scene for over 5 decades. This album combines the traditional Goema tunes with the razor sharp performances of his son’s band
“The Genuines” . .

    Koos: The Black Tape

    The Black Tape: These are the notes by Warrick Sony on the Sjambok download site for the Koos Black Tape digital download release:

    Three big things happened in 1987. I returned to South Africa after a year of touring my Kalahari Surfers band in the UK, I met my wife, Michele, and saw a band called Koos. They were, for me, the only South African band that fitted in with the work I was doing with Recommended Records and the political climate of the time. I saw them play at “The Pool CLub” and later again at “The Black Sun” in Johannesburg.They performed with incredible intensity combining theatre, art and music with punk sensibility, and best of all using the Afrikaans language which the best expressed , in my opinion, the peculiar zeitgeist of the 80’s. Not only the South African 80’s but the global cold war 80’s. Like German, Afrikaans has an angst that grabs the soul.
    I approached them about recording and brought them into the Shifty Studio* one Sunday morning where most of their tracks were laid down live. Shifty had already begun recording some of the Afrikaans punk bands like Gereformeerde Blues Band and Bernoldus Niemand. KOOS were different though:they fitted somewhere outside of the light entertainment market. It was hard.
    I think of the Brecht quote “Art is not a mirror held up to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it.”

    Essentially a live studio album, it was recorded straight onto a Fostex B16 and digital SonyPCM ( the first digital recorder on the market).
    The recording was released as a cassette tape in a brown paper bag stamped with the word “KOOS”.
    Some months later, I recorded one of their performances live at the Black Sun, from which 2 bonus tracks appear here
    Here, then ,is the KOOS cassette packaged for CD reissue and now for MP3 release through Sjambok. As they say “Oud maar nog nie koud”CD front cover
