Oppikoppi 2012 – Sweet Thing is just 49 days away! It is Car-Life’s annual pilgramage to the greatest South African music festival ever. We hope you have started training and learning your songs!
As the First Lady has never been, I need to cram lots of bands into each week in order to train her. This week I have done what I term the “Easy to find on YouTube” playlist. We have:
- Desmond and the Tutus – Pretoria ska/hipster fun group. They’ve got a new album out and are releasing videos regularly. I expect to see you rocking out to these guys at Koppi!
- Jack Parow & Francois van Coke – I’m a bit over Jack Parow now, but when he collaborates with Francois van Coke he produces some memorable tracks. Remember Dans Dans Dans?
- Taxi Violence – Cape Town based Blues-rockers have making small waves for a while. Its time they get noticed. Be sure to watch these guys
- Matthew van der Want – Most people have never heard of this guy. He is one of the coolest, funniest and smoothest musicians in SA. The video below is the newest one I could find for him.
