Deon Bakkes and the Stolen Horses

Mieliepop Q&A: Deon Bakkes And The Stolen Horses

The Republic of Mieliepop 2018 is only one month away, and since Deon Bakkes and The Stolen Horses is probably the only horse-related band on the lineup, we aimed to get off our high horses, speak to the dark horse Deon himself, and get the goods straight from the horse’s mouth… Luckily he’s one who enjoys horsing around.

The Highs and Lows of Generation X – Wonderboom talks opening for Crash Test Dummies

Unfortunately for me, Wonderboom aren’t big enough Crash Test Dummies fans to have favourite songs, or any cool ‘how I first discovered Crash Test Dummies’ stories. But since they’re one of the local openers for the Canadian band’s upcoming Pretoria and Cape Town shows, I asked them about it anyway.

Foxtrot band

Q&A: Foxtrot on looping, popping and dancing at Park Acoustics

Foxtrot is a relatively new band from Pretoria, who play a hard-to-define kind of “Foxpop” music (“with a scent of jazz, African grooves and theatrical inspiration”). The group consists of Siobhan Lloyd-Jones on violin & vocals, Ronald Davey on cello, trumpet, and vocals, Mart-Marie Snyman on keys, and James Robb on drums and percussion. They’re playing the next Park Acoustics on 4 February, so we asked them a couple of questions to alleviate our anticipation…

Adventure Man - Gad Shuffled His Feet - Crash Test Dummies

Gad from Adventure Man names three of Crash Test Dummies’ albums!

Gad de Combes is Adventure Man’s founder/frontman, and also a big fan of Crash Test Dummies. So much that he campaigned for his band to get an opening slot on the Canadian group’s upcoming Pretoria show. But where does this all come from? What exactly is his relationship to the band? And can he even name three of their albums?

Brad Roberts - The Crash Test Dummies

Crash Test Dummies on philosphy, songwriting, and coming to South Africa

Crash Test Dummies get back together now and then when the occasion arises,” says Brad Roberts, the Canadian band’s frontman/lead singer. “I wouldn’t say it aided the band, so much as it has been a natural consequence of getting older: priorities change.”

But luckily, the stars align every now and then and they get to play in South Africa. Like this February, when they’re coming down for two shows: in Cape Town on the 17th, and Pretoria on the 18th. They haven’t released a new album in a while (their last single, I’ll Be Peaceful Then, came out in 2016), and it doesn’t look like that’s gonna change soon.

Beer & Bottomless bands: Sir Thomas Brewing Co coming to Hermanus Craft Beer Festival

The upcoming Hermanus Craft Beer Festival is a celebration of beer and music, and Sir Thomas Brewing Co is one of the breweries that’ll be attending. We asked them a few questions about beer, beer drinking, and bottomless bands to accompany the experience…

Sons of Settlers - Hermanus Craft Beer Festival

Hermanus, Craft Beer, and Sons of Settlers

The Hermanus Craft Beer Festival is returning on 22 December to mix beer and music, and Sons of Settlers is one of the bands on this year’s line-up. They describe their sound as “high-energy melodic folk, and will be appearing at the Hermanus Craft Beer Festival. We spoke to one half of the duo, Le-Roi Nel, about the band, the beer fest, and Berlin.

The Flow Chats 009: Morné du Toit

The Flow Chats 009: Morné du Toit

Morné du Toit het eers my aandag gevang as die ou in die tamatiesousadvertensie wat fluit wanneer hy sê “thirty-six”. Nou maak hy ook flieks, en sy derde een as regisseur, Vuil Wasgoed, begin op 8 Desember in teaters draai. Ek’t met hom gaan gesels oor alles van skilder in Melville kelders, aksente aansit as jy kos bedien, flieks maak vir kinders, en flieks maak waarvoor kinders eerder ‘n paar jaar moet wag.
