Kick Off Kak29.03.2010
That the opening concert for the inaugural FIFA World Cup on South African soil features just three South African bands, and none of them are headlining. While we have no problem with Vusi Mahlasela’s inclulsion, how can the organisers justify the super-niched alt.rock flyweights Blk Jks and vanilla adult contemporary KFC rockers The Parlotones over the likes of Johnny Clegg, HHP, Simphiwe Dana, Sipho Hotstix Mabuse, Tumi and the Volume, Tidal Waves, The Dirty Skirts, 340ml… hell even Die Antwoord would have made more sense, and been more representative of the rainbow nation, than these guys!
KIF. Nice work on the poster.
