Toxic Shox

by Montle Moorosi / 01.09.2009

Old time journalists have a very fucked up but I guess sensible saying, “if it bleeds, it leads”. I told my Hasidic ageing bald editor that I wouldn’t be going to the Toxic Avenger show cause my ex-girlfriend might be there and I’m afraid that she might try to shank my current girlfriend while she takes a piss in the bathrooms. This promptly made him book two spots for us on the guest list without my approval or confirmation whatsoever. The last I heard I was supposed to write about the music and not about myself and Tumi’s weight problems or imminent girl on girl violence, but like they said back in the day when a journalist’s minimum wage was still R1 a word, “if it bleeds, it leads”, so let this pussy menstruate you a red bread crumb trail of corpus luteum.

Toxic Avenger

Kiss kiss, bang bang

Dressed in a red and black double-breasted jacket with black velvet detail, a white tuxedo shirt and a black bow tie, I spent the greater part of the night taking compliments. One photographer even said me and my girlfriend are his “muses”. It all got a bit strange though when some woman from Elle magazine said to my girlfriend, “I always see you two always looking so good together, can I write a story about you guys?” We kind of laughed in her face about how dumb the idea was, but the music was so loud that when she said “pardon?” I said, “No, she was just making a knock knock joke about Aids” then she tried to say the whole offer again but we distracted her with our erratic Carlton Banks style of dancing with our mouths wide open, tongues dangling wet in the discotheque like Labradors on MDMA.

Toxic Avenger

That's our man Montle, keeping it real for the kids...

I Momentarily forgot about the fear of my ex-girlfriend coming. I frantically started trying to find a pen and a piece of paper to keep a log book of all the black females in the club, so far I had counted only 3 nigger bitches and one coloured lady who looked like she may have once worked at a fisheries in Muizenberg. Still no sign of the ex… About two weeks ago she called in a slightly tipsy stupor and said to me “I want to go to there’s, I heard hot party”.

The bathroom stalls are always full at the Alexander Theatre. No one was making urine; either everyone prefers to sit when they pee or they only shit, but more likely they like to do cocaine, which was in order for the night if your nerves were as fucked as mine. I can’t afford the cursed powder so I just licked the left overs off that silver thing that holds the toilet paper.

Toxic Avenger

KidofDoom are on, another reminder of a past life scattered with memories of broken doors, a barrage of “fuck you’s”, constant fast foods and copious amounts of drinking with the ex. Their music is charming and for a while I relax and forget about my menstrual cycle trail and wonder how KidofDoom would sound if they got Tshepo Tshola from Sankomota to be their lead vocalist. I came to the conclusion that this is the only way that KidofDoom and Tshepo would ever win a Grammy.

Playdoe then came on. I’ve seen them perform a thousand times before. Sibot had some new beats which he threw on and as usual were impressive, but apart from that, I guess its same old same old. Playdoe is made up of Sibot and Spoek Mathamb. Sibot likes to talk a lot these days when he’s on stage, which I find quite adorable in an almost homo erotic way. After their set, Sibot told me that he’s afraid that he might be outshining Spoek if he carries on with his toasting. I was just like, “get yours homie, get yours”. Standing at the bar waiting to get a beer from my pal Chris Saunders I start to think about this article, and my writing in general… I’m cursed, whatever I write people think its coming from hate and not opinion. “Thanks for the beer Chris”.

The team Uncool DJ set was super super stuff. Murray Turpin and Chris Saunders were working off some old ass CDJ’s but were twerking the fuck out the system with their mixing. The set was a dirty hour of dub step remixes of electro hits from back in the day and a firm fixture of new electro songs currently doing the blog rounds.

By 1am, I had forgotten about the ex and my girlfriend was like, “I think you can relax now, that bitch aint coming”. The relief was mixed with a heavy dose of discombobuIation as I said to my girlfriend, “what the fuck do I write about now then?”
“Err…the music?” she said.
“Bitch, I don’t think so,” as I knocked back tequila and planted my face into her bulging mammary glands.

Toxic Avenger

I get a tap on my shoulder from a white lady, “are you Montle?” She has a very different accent and I wondered if it may be Carol Reed because I saw her name on the guest list. She then says, “its Ana.”
“Ohhhhhh, you’re Nthato’s (Spoek Mathambo) wife, heard a lot about you,” I said.
“I recognise you from your pictures on your blog.” She said.
I was flattered and pleased to meet her, but conversation can get a bit fucked if you have bad hearing like me and the person you’re speaking to has an accent and the music in the club is playing at satanic decibel levels. Conversation in these instances can be settled in only two ways, either drop the conversation or just smile and keep agreeing and laughing at what the other person is saying. I chose to drop it all just in case I may be agreeing to be sold off to a travelling circus in Vienna. Spoek however was hard to get a hold off ’cause he’s so busy with running the show and various monopolies that I couldn’t get to interview him and find out more about his wedding day, which was the next day.

Then later I met a Carol that I do know who is acquaintances with my ex, I forgot her name and called her Lindsey…
“No its Carol!” The look on her face said, curse the day I ever became friends with kaffirs.

Toxic Avenger? Well I didn’t even realise he was playing when he was playing, ’cause it was pretty average. All in all there’s not much to say other than that it was just another electro DJ set, and I’m quite sure I’m not the only one who felt this. My sincere remorse goes out to all the poor cunts who actually forked out R100 and R15 for a black label up in that bitch. So me and the wife just decided to forget about all the bullshit and just have our own fun. Bianca of SABC 1 Live fame, who now works at MTV was there. I was kind of embarrassed when my lady let her know that I used to be in love with her in high school. She was really cool about it and we took some pictures and tequila together and I had this thought at the back of my mind to ask my girlfriend, “hey baby, what are your thoughts on swinging?” But that I kept to myself ’cause I know very well that if it bleeds it will definitely lead to the pussy.

    Good work Montle. Doing your bit for racial pride and making sure those infernal pale settlers will never forget. Your liberal use of the N and K words made me think I had woken up pre-’94.

    So this is how it works then. White ad execs can inundate us with media that portrays honkies as spineless klutzes and Motle gets to use the K-word and biological levels of misogyny ‘cos he’s, like, black you know. Stereotypes, you gotta love ’em (kinda, kinda not).

    and what about everyone else at the gig? and how about the other bands? and dj’s? cutout collective were pretty cool. their gfx are impressive (i thought); elec problem’s notwithstanding. I thought spoek’s stuff was impressive. but hey, I’m a honky. Sue me.

    Without going on the racial tip, may I compliment Montle on his dandy suit. (yes, I saw him and his lady there – she has a great hairdo.)

    As offensive as his writing can be, I find it would be better taken with a stiff espresso and the attitude that he is writing a column, or a portion of a memoir, rather than a review. Everything he has written for Mahala is written very much in the style of first person blogpost/memoir. That’s fine, if perhaps there’s that suggestion up front?

    This was most definitely NOT a review, but it was an entertaining read nonetheless.

    For those who didn’t make it to Toxic, may i recommend that next time Deconstruction throw an event, you do your best to get there, because their parties are most definitely post-race, non-genre-specific, more than bands-and-DJ epic evenings out.

    Yes, good work Lisa, I am not sure if you are aware that one dj (Dexterity) pulled out at the last minute with suspected malaria, this disrupted up the entire well orchestrated flow of the evening, Destrukto had to improvise and make sure that the party flowed as well as he could despite the electricity problems, as well as running the event with the Deconstruction and Dirty Dirty crew, as well as all the things that weren’t supplied to them from the venue. It is not easy to get an antse crowd rocking after the electricity problems that there were, Destrukto did an awesome job at that. FURTHERMORE, Cutout Collective were superb DESPITE there set being cut short as they were the main people fucked over by the electricity issues!!!!! They handled the problems professionaly and with tremendous good grace!! Adi Loveland also came in later and played a wicked cool set, so too did dirtyoldDisco downstairs along with Data Takashi, Team Uncool and Destrukto. Deconstruction were there from 10 am!! the sound company was supposed to bring cdj’s as agreed, at 2pm when the chief sound dude was still not there, Destrukto phoned him to find out where the dj equpt was only to find that it wasn’t coming, they had to phone around to get a pair, this was sorted at 5pm when Destrukto had to drive to Germiston to collect the said cdj’s. thank god for those old cdj’s, they saved the day. Adrian, Malcolm, Dirk, Barry, Lisa, Destrukto, Spoek et al did an awesome job under difficult circumstances, Just not sure if they will use the Alex Theatre again. The crowd seemed to be having a decent enough time!!! the tequila flowed, the music only stopped with the electricity problems, however that was beyond Deconstruction and Dirty Dirty’s control!!! Once the problems were sorted, then all was wicked cool. Spoek’s performance was electric as usual, the Toxic Avenger was cool, yes, not everyones cup of tea, but he tweaked that laptop and his plug ins to maximum effect and had the crowd rocking, a little better than “average”
    If you are going to “review” an event, please be in posession of ALL the facts first before spouting ones mouth off. I saw you plenty times dude, and you were having a WICKED cool time, and in the hospitality room you were chumming up big time to Toxic and his cool manager Gregoire. If he was that “average” would you have been doing that? Loved your cap by the way:)

    Lisa…have you ever heard of Tom Wolfe doing a story hauticulture using strictly facts and objective writing?have you ever heard of new journalism?

AND he was in at the expense of the people running the event. yeah, have an opinion, i have no problems with that, but to gloss over the REST of what was happening on the night including ALL the other performers smacks of poor journalism.

    regardless of whether he paid to get in our not to review the gig, he’s entitled to his subjective opinion. as are those who don’t have the benefit of having a paid voice as a “new” journalist. opinions tend to lead to debate, sometimes heated. debate leads to healthy opinions being informed by other people. at the end of the day, it’s about what people take from the event

  37. Doctor L. says:

    JD is a ‘good’ man; he is displaced here.

    Blah Blah Fish Paste gives a very convincing description of Carol Reed (she believes in ‘post-race’), while at the same time providing an acute and very telling observation:

    “Previously disadvantaged is the new black. Don’t you know.
    Parading his chip…a black diamond in the rough….show him the money!!!”

    All ‘black’ journalists who work with a ‘predominately white’ publication must employ an irreverent and provocative voice. They must ‘push boundaries’. This is how you get ‘mad hits’ while securing a ‘progressive’ ethos – the ‘black’ is not censored, you see, it is free.

    Montle knows this and Mahala knows this. They are smart enough. This is not a progressive publication, this is entertainment, distraction.

    However, I can’t ‘hate on’ a ‘black’ man getting some of that ‘Tall Israeli money’ – even though it’s most likely a left over pittance.

    As you were.

  40. Roger Young says:

    I should step in here and point out that no-one gets paid (at this point) at mahala, hence the name. Also this idea of “black writer”/”white publication” is really counter productive. We do not believe in affirmative action or favouring one race over the other or any of that old school bullshit. We like to work with people we like.

    Montle maybe a “privileged twenty-something” (he’s not but i get your point) who doesn’t “care about anything” other than, of course, having a good time and not really caring too much about substance, but we live in country where it’s his right to live that way as much as it is your right to not read what he has to say.

    And Dr L. thanks for generating “Mad Hits” by coming back and commenting so often.

    i was at the gig, and yes i’ve studied creative non-fiction- the idea is to describe the music from a subjective angle, if you”re going to label something a review, then thats what it should be, and not one-poseurs night out on the town.

    The jist is, that this publication (as with most mainstream media) wouldn’t dare post a piece, pseudo-gonzo or “old school”, which in any way alluded to, say, the benefits of eugenics or the valuable contribution of pre-struggle pale faces to the continent. Yet, does not bat an eye-lid in publishing anti-Afrikaaner/anti-White African tainted bile. (ie In our fledgling democracy Pro-Black = uber cool and Pro-White = Taboo)
    But. Then again. I suppose the site wouldn’t last to long if it attempted to offer thoughts from both sides of the coin. Freedom, after all, only applies to the PC of the day.

    Bra Montle, the only problem here is that you are the lone vuvuzela in the sea of honkiness. All these complaining white people are the same ones who think that they understand the black man because they once had a conversation with their “garden boy”. The problem can be fixed if we do the BEE-compliance audit on mahala. When this is fixed they will all see that you are not the controversial black man, just brave. Time for me to assemble our cadres and pay Mr Davis a visit. After the revolution there will be proper representation, while the select few will have unlimited poetic license, waBenzis and sharp threads from Georgio Armani.

    It looks like the photographer only took photos of his mates and they all work at the NIKE concept store in Melville… wack store. Working at the NIKE concept store is basically like working at Mcdonalds but the uniform costs more. That black dude looks like a dark version of Jack Parow, i would like to call him BLACK PAROW. he wears his skinny’s with a sag, christ how wack is that looks like fucking ghetto clown – what look is that “hip indie shit hop” Christ wake up you fuck heads. Plus all the writer is doing a good job on big upping himself the whole time about how cool he thinks he is… Why the fuck did i even waste time reading this – this whole article is a waste and the worst thing ever to appear on Mahala – please don’t run SL Magazine crap like this again or you will lose the credibility of this magazine. Now my whole day is shit and i actually feel like puking.

    I notice the only advertising on this site is Mahala’s own. Who wants to start placing bets as to when Andy ‘I’m So Righteous I Left SL’ Davis’s daddy’s back account will dry up?

    good grief, you’d swear some of the commenters here paid subscriptions and therefore feel entitled to bitch so much – anonymously nogal too!

    Andy – righteous? Perhaps he got fucking bored of the politics and wank that was SL and walked away. Just like I did.

    Grow some balls, kids – put your names out there along with your opinions and you’ll be taken far more seriously.

    I was fired because I spent the production money on heroin. Do I get a free pass on righteous? Or does that mean I qualify as self indulgent? hmmm, questions…….

    You’re (moslty) a bunch of wankers.

    I only read this ‘cos it was passed on to me by a friend – we trade inanities.

    @Montle – glad you get satisfaction racking up, um, anonymous comments. Way to go…
    @Carol – I’m slightly jealous of people who can say things like “get post race”. I think I’m jealous of how far you can get your head up your arse, and from so many angles!
    @Nathan – yeah, irrelevant.

    How the fuck does Mahala get off calling this a “South African mouthpiece that strives to report and represent what’s really happening along the fault line and in the trenches of South African culture.” Maybe it’s a mouthpiece for the few hundred scenesters that you’ll find littering the Sunday morning streets of JHB and CT.

    You really have no idea how small & insignificant & marginal your ‘scene’ is. You’re so wrapped up in yourselves that you think the photos above are representative of the evening.
    Incidentally, I was at the JHB show – and Toxic Avenger played a pre-recorded Ableton set, applied an effect every now and then, and got drunk the rest of the time – that’s what I like to call BULLSHIT. No wonder half the crowd wasn’t on the dance floor while the main attraction played.

    If I was as full of myself as you, I’d likely throw myself up. Maybe this is your electronic spew bowl. Hopefully you see a glimpse of yourself in the messy depths of it – and see things for what they really are. It’s ok; it won’t be long before one of your scenester brothers or sisters arrives, revels in your excess, slaps you on the back, fixes your hair, and takes you out for another night of self-binging.

    Have fun. See you at the next one…

    I thought you were using some type of metaphor (which reminded me of a song by Tenacious D about being gentle…)

    This is awesome. It’s amazing how quick people are to jump at a chance to slag people off where’s there’s no face-time. God bless the internet. The article itself was drivel, let’s be honest, but this comment thread more than makes up for it in entertainment value. Thank you Mahala for providing a platform for intelligent/moronic debate, I will definitely be back to see who says what next.

    By the way, it’d be interesting to know how few people are actually posting here with the anonymity to hide behind

    *cough*

    Hi Andy. Yes, Zeno has already labelled me as someone unusually obesessed with standards, but I think many of us are starting to feel that k-lap’s remarks are beyond the pale, utterly tasteless and fuelled by nothing but infantile malice. Moderation?

    @ Montle:

    In hip hop vernacular I always thought it was spelled ‘niggah’ opposed to ‘nigga’?
    Let’s not get too lazy now. We all now the ‘h’ gives it that necessary grunt. A bit like ‘chutzpah’.

    Now this little gem I did enjoy : ‘satanic decibel levels’.
    Pure genius, but again it’s ‘Satanic’. Gotta use that capital ‘S’ for emphasis.

    Nice is not a nice word as my English teacher used to enforce…
