Here are some more photo’s from our last night. They were taken by the very talented Kazunori Nishibiro.
I totally love this song. It’s by a South African band who were around from 1983-1985, the country’s darkest years of Apartheid. In the lead singer Rene Veldsman’s own words they were “a glamorous protest against government policy, homophobia, the constraints on freedom of expression and, generally, the rules in place during the apartheid years”. And even though the track was banned on the radio, it became a cult hit for both white and black South Africans.
This isn’t the official video for ‘Hey Boy’ I think someone just soundtracked this footage of some crazy Sowetan train surfing. Enjoy!
The lovely Sweet Bulbs who played for us at in New York last year were featured in Brooklyn Vegan the other day and they even used the photo I took at our gig. (Including the messy scrawl at the bottom of it. It was dark and I was wasted OK?).
This really made me miss summer and New York so bad- the Cake Shop, the weirdos on the L Train, the street tacos and the cute skater boys.
Sweet Bulbs’ self titled debut album is out now. Click on the picture below to go to the original post and score a free download.
This weekend was jam packed full of surprise parties, birthday parties and after parties.
Here’s a picture from Mar Sellar’s birthday at The Victory on Saturday night. Heavy-oke!!
(p.s We’re DJing for Johny at The Alibi soon. Come.)
