by Matt Vend / 21.11.2014 / Durban muso and sea-dog, Matt Vend, drifts around LA playing shows and getting lost. He’s swept along with a little folk/punk movement made up of misfits and madmen on a mission to revive the true (filthy) spirit of punk. Revolt!
by Tseliso Monaheng / 20.11.2014 / I’m on a road trip with three other friends… destination Cape Town. It’s been four nights of sleeping in tents and trying our best to not freeze at night. On this particular morning, a Friday, we’ll be having a fancy breakfast at a suave establishment in Swellendam. We score the deal through a well-connected mate; it’s a welcome change from our questionable diet over the past few days.
by Mahala High Five Brigade / 19.11.2014 / Every year, the creative kids look forward to Interpret Durban like it’s their birthday. It’s an opportunity to shine, to kick down the office door and go exploring the sticky city and hopefully come back with some gold.

It’s a chance to exhibit alongside the city’s best creatives and be rewarded for a unique perspective. An incentive to go make art.

They spent a week splashing paint liberally upon shebeens, Jojo tanks and walls alike, ending the renaissance with a gallery show. The crew’s called Ism Skism, and it’s coming to a town near you!

A lot of musicians seem to go missing in this country. Somehow they slip between the strings of the scene. Somehow we only recognise their greatness when their hands are

In a world of disposable digital files, and utilitarian CDs (that just end up getting ripped anyway), a vinyl record is becoming a more and more beautiful object to collect.
