Stone Cold Jane Austen


Stone Cold Jane Austen is the greatest band in the universe. You’ve never heard of them. They patented the Belville sound before Belville even knew it had one. They are also solely to blame for bands like Fokofpolisiekar. Their story is ready to be told. But it needs your help…

For three long years, this film, that reveals more about the South African music industry than the industry would like us to see, has been the secret passion project of local musician and ex-radio DJ John Savage.

It stars a who’s who of the local music scene. Names such as Rob Van Vuuren, Jack Parow, Fokofpolisiekar, Chris Chameleon, The Parlotones, Die Heuwels Fantasties, a buck-naked Daniel Beddingfield and more fill out the credit roll.

“It’s taken three long years, plus a lot of my own money (and some others people’s money) to make it this far where I have already shot a lot of this film. Now we want to finish it so that you can see it!” rages John Savage.

“There’s so much red tape in getting a film like this made (as, admittedly, some of it is quite controversial). We can cut through all the kak and the music fans can help get it made (That’s you by the way).”

Here’s how you can be involved (and maybe even wind up with a part in the movie!)
