They will push you to extremes you never thought possible, without any concern or responsibility for your well-being.   If it seems like... Read More

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

Desmond Does Durban

Our favourite heathen, Russel Smith, returns to gigs and writing reviews for us, bands and ladies beware. He kicks off his return with a few choice words on Desmond and The Tutus recent gig at Live.     Having been out the of the loop on the live music front for a spell, it was a bittersweet reunion to find myself surrounded by familiar sweaty bodies and some new ones all eagerly anticipating the evening’s bill of entertainment at... Read More

Win Free Entry To PH Fat This Friday!

Girl, we love you so much (Jump mother fucker etc.), which is why we’re giving four of you free entry to PH Fat’s gig at Origin this Friday thanks to Uber Cool.   There’s no chance you haven’t heard of these dudes before, so it’d be redundant to talk them up to you.

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. And there’s talk of sex and poppers.     “Can you cover the gig tomorrow night? We have no one else to do it”. 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

Some events you just have to be there for, the Moon Landing, Mandela being set free, G!G!B’s last show… But sometimes life gets in the way and you just can’t make it. If you were one of the poor souls to miss Saturday’s show at The Winston, Xavier Vahed’s shots will make you feel like you were right there in the pit, drenched in sweat, getting punched in the face and stage diving with reckless abandon.     Wanna... 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

Vote DIY! Or Die!

Okay, we’re not gonna actually kill you. But it would be rather nice of you to vote for us to win the Super M Blogger Comp which will see Bob and Nick kicking it to Ibiza to bring you the greatest story ever written. Or at the very least, it’ll be pretty good, hopefully. We’re up against some of the biggest blogs in the country and while they have a lot of followers, this is Durban, we don’t follow, we team up and kick ass.   It’s... Read More
