Crawling King Snake and how George van der Spuy declared himself royalty

George van der Spuy, who’s mostly known as the frontman of Capetonian rock band Taxi Violence, has recently launched his career as a solo artist, under the name Crawling King Snake. Along with the announcement, he released a first single, Land of the Blind – apparently a “baptism” for the project, and a preview of a still-to-be-launched EP titled The Gospel According to George. All this is a predictable move that we’ve seen before by rock band frontmen, but there’s something fascinating about the way he’s doing it, and the imagery he uses. We asked George a few questions in an attempt to decipher Crawling King Snake.
