Grandmaster Flash (Aaaaaah!)

“All the good acts skip Durban.” If this is you, you’re wrong. Want proof? Well Grandmaster Flash was in Durban last week and Ty Jay Ay was there to document it. You’re doing good Durbs, you’re doing good…     I’ll tell you right off the bat that last Thursday night was a blast. Fuck me, did Durban have a good time.   Starting with an entry level ciggy, beer and pizza combo at Spiga, I engaged... Read More

Durban Interpreted

This year’s Interpret Durban was an absolute humdinger of a party. All that were there haven’t been able to shut up about it and neither has Bob Perfect, he shares his memories of the night with us after the jump.   Over the years the BAT Center has played host to some of the most memorable shows of my life and last Saturday, another hefty deposit was made into the memory bank. It felt good to return to the BAT Center for this year’s... Read More

Removal of Wayne Danker’s Interview

Hey guys, just want to give a quick explanation of why we removed the Wayne Danker interview. There were a couple insulting comments on the interview containing swearing and Wayne would prefer not to be associated with swearing and bad language. He asked that we either removed the comments or the post and we decided to remove the post. We believe that no language is bad language and that as much as it’s never cool to read negative comments about... Read More

Interpret Durban Convos: Samora Chapman

Samora Chapman’s photo came first in the Interpret Durban photography contest. Russell Grant caught up with him to have a word about his winning picture DIY: How long have you been a photographer? Samora: Damn, that’s an ambiguous question first up! I’ve been making money off photography for about four years on and off. But I’ve been taking pics for about eight years. In between taking pics and writing I’ve been a labourer, driver, filmmaker,... Read More

Interpret Durban

On Friday night, City Hall played home to Interpret Durban. There’s a good chance you already knew that, since you were probably there. Here’s Russell Grant’s take on the evening.

The... Read More
