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

Just read it.     It’s difficult to talk about the Friday before last without some preamble on the Winston and its legacy.

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
