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

Win Free Entry To G!G!B’s Last Show!

  And now, the is near, and G!G!B face the final curtain.  They’ve said it clear, they stated their case, of which they were certain. They’ve lived a life that’s full and traveled each and ev’ry highway, and more, much more than this, they did it their way. You get to witness them do it their way one last time this Saturday at The Winston with Conqueror, Strage and Black Math, and because they hate money, they’ve... Read More

The Brother Moves On ETA Launch

The Brother Moves On have spent this year making a name for themselves, so naturally, only about five people in Durban have heard of them. They recently braved the trip down to the 031 to launch their ETA EP at Live with Fruits & Veggies and Car Boot Vendors joining them on the bill. They made an impact on the crowd that was there and our new guy Msizi Sithole, who lets you know his thoughts on the show after the jump.     “The Brother... Read More

There’s a mad line-up featuring Broken Toy and Super Evil as well as an eclectic mix of local DJ’s and Black Math. Rather than trying too hard to sell you on the vibe, I’ll let the infomercial below do it for me.     So for those of you wanting to get your stomp on, we’ve got 4 tickets to give away to four budding ravers. To... Read More

Black Math

In the relatively short time Black Math have been together, they’ve been making big waves in the Durban scene and with good reason too. A rock ‘n roll outfit that draws from previous generations but injects their own youthful testerone into the mix, they’re here to bring back balls and depth to music. We chatted to them about being a young band and where they see themselves going with all this.   DIY: First of all, who are... Read More

Desmond & The Tutus Mnusic Launch

Last Thursday, South Africa’s geeky indie darlings, Desmond & The Tutus,  came down the coast for a midweek gig that packed out Live. Eliza Day reviews the Tutus and Black Math’s performances.    I was interested to see what Desmond & The Tutus, the beloved Jozi band would bring with their new album, MNUSIC. I grew up listening to this band with the first wave of new millennium indie kids and was hoping that they had... Read More

The Stellas Live Charge The Pub

The Stellas recently hit up the trusty Winston Pub for the launch of thier new EP, Live Charge. They were supported by local shredders Black Math and Catlike Thieves. Russel Smith reviews the show and chats to The Stella’s for a bit. I don’t think I’ve bothered to watch a Catlike Thieves show for two years. I can’t recall the reasons for my aversion to witnessing them play again, but they were strong enough to get me to shun them for... Read More

Warming Up For Splashy Fen

Recent import from Cape Town, Eliza Day, gives us a fresh perspective on our hometown and reviews the Splashy Warm Up gig at new venue, Live. I was interested to see what Durban had to offer in the shape of a music scene after I moved here a couple months ago. Covering the Splashy Fen warm up show seemed like a  good place to get some insight into the goings on of the creative crowd, with a line up that consisted of something kinda new, Black... Read More
