Durban Animators Making Moves – First Thursdays Focus

We all spent our early years lost in the vividly coloured and twisted cartoon worlds of Ghibli, Animaniacs and Walt Disney, but how many of us realised we could make worlds like that? The practice of animation actually predates cinematography, if we consider the manipulation of shadows over light projection to be considered early animation experiments. Now, South Africa is catching up to the growing global trend leaning towards telling stories through... 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

Astronomy – Bali Moon | Music Video

We don’t really know much about Astronomy. As a site, we’re a Leo, which is probably why we’re so broadminded and expansive. Anyway, what we do know is that Astronomy are a two man Electro Pop outfit from Durban who are currently kicking it in Bali and produce music videos that are probably the result of drug use. Enjoy.     You can find Astronomy on Facebook and Bandcamp.  Read More

Kagiso’s Island Of Treasure (Sponsored)

Kagiso Lediga is blowing up right now. He’s been killing it on LNN, toured the country in a suit and pulled a Parktown Prawn out of Lady Gaga’s lady parts in Die Antwoord’s Fatty Boom Boom video. You’d think he’d be a shoe in for any job he applies for but the cats at Tropika have gone with a “bigger” name to host The Island Of Treasure once again.     You can follow Tropika on Twitter, like them... Read More

The Sea Water Drinkers by Phillip Bloom | Video

Director Phillip Bloom recently paid a visit to SA to lecture film students around the country and whilst he was here, he shot a mini doccie in each city he was in. The Sea Water Drinkers is the story he came across in Durban. It’s an outside look into an odd practice which barely raises an eyebrow from the locals.     You can read more about the technical side of making the film and watch the Joburg and Cape Town videos on Phillip’s... Read More
