Let Love And Pride Never Fade

In our most nepotistic article to date, Bob Perfect writes about his best friends’ band. That band is Go! Go! Bronco though so we doubt you’d mind too much. Here’s a look back at the last six years of one of the wildest, loudest and most debaucherous bands to have come out of Durban.     I know this article is late, really late, but it took Go! Go! Bronco six years to release an album so it seems fitting. I have to admit... Read More

Taxi Violence, Relationship Sex and Poppers

DJ Fuego Heat kicks the year off by catching new comers The Pie Keys, stalwarts City Bowl Mizers and visitors Taxi Violence at Live. It’s mostly posi. Mostly.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is the charm of Bob Perfect, and how Saturday night saw me heading to Live to check out The Pie Keys, City Bowl Mizers and Taxi... Read More

Piece by Piece

ISO recently returned to Live to release their latest album, Piece by Piece, with instrumental sludge metal band STRAGE and the indie popsters Asleep In Transit sharing the bill. It was a weird one. Bob Perfect reviews the show.   It felt good to be back at Live for ISO’s Piece by Piece album launch.
