It’s been an insane marathon of work. Last night i swore to myself i’d get 6hrs sleep but when 1am arrived, so did noise from my neighbours above me (a granny flat atop a granny flat, wooden floors in between). I like my neighbours which is a good and important thing to be able to say but for 2hrs my sleep deprived self was imagining a big-arsed, gun that could shoot mouth and foot mufflers through walls to the appropriate, me-damaging, targets.
On the bright side, i listened, via headphones with Play on Repeat, to my latest CD compilation which markets the bands, Knysna and the event they associated with, the Garden Route Summer Concert. Truly beautiful music and again a testimony to how brilliant South African bands are! It was a challenge making the mixed genres flow (rock, pop, ragga, indie) but i pulled it off best i could.
Hopefully you’ll be one of the 300 people getting a free copy. If you do, tell me what you think. I’m sure that you’ll praise some of these bands higher than heaven, nirvana or valhalla can ever reach:)
