I’m sure you’ve noticed we write about Jack Parow quite a bit. To me, he is a bit over the top and I can’t help cringing when we’re out somewhere and EVERYONE sings along to his songs and they know all the words and they think they are just as kief as he is. This […]

Online Radio About To Get Larger

It’s no secret that anything online is the way to go especially in South Africa where our dinosaur public broadcaster is more concerned with the revolving door it’s board has become than actually making sure that the listeners or viewers get anything decent to listen to or watch. That’s why it’s so refreshing that online […]

Laugh Out Loud with Robbie And Mark

If you don’ t know who Robbie Wessels is or if you don’t know about the Leeuloop then I have no bloody idea where you have been the last century. Robbie does everything from totally common music to stuff that will literally make you wipe away tears! I always seem to come across this clip […]

The Parlotones vs Koos Kombuis

I wrote an article on Afrikaans music and I thought I’d add to it. If you don’t know it by now… I’m big on music. Very big! Yo mamma big! Now my favourite band, The Parlotones, did one of my favourite Afrikaans artists’ songs (Lisa se Klavier by Koos Kombuis)  and when I first heard […]

If Afrikaans Could Only Dance

When people think of Afrikaans music they generally start frowning and slagging the music, because let’s face it, when I say Afrikaans music the first thing you thought about was music back in the day when it was all big Afrikaans words and basically sounded like something out of a bad drama or porn movie. […]

‘Till The World Ends

She went from wanting us to hit her one more time, to doing it again,  to giving her more, and now she wants us to get her on the floor so we can dance ‘Till the world ends. Britney is not my favourite person, but  her last couple of albums have  got some catchy tunes […]

Mindless Drivel Is The New Music

In a move that’s sure to make Americans even more loved and respected world wide, there is a worrying new trend for ‘stars’ and ‘new hit songs’ to come from what is clearly bored teenagers living life in a bubble and then loading footage of it up to Youtube. Remember Rebecca Black? Me neither. Anyway […]

Die Antwoords Video Best On The Internet

The Guggenheim Foundation, the high temple of contemporary art, has chosen Die Antwoords Zef Side video as one of the 25 best internet videos of the past two years.

The Parlotones Vino In 3D

Jason Derulo Knows What Women Want

He’s got the moves, he’s got the looks and he certainly is very sauve.  Every girls dreams seems to be the lyrics of all his songs. I’m not sure who writes his songs, possibly could be a sister or a something but all I know is, If any man wanted me the way he wants […]

This Is The Worst Pop Song Of All Time

This is it folks, the worst  pop song of all time. Not only is it a steaming heap of shit in the lyrics department, it showcases the utterly inane existence of one whose largest dilemma seems to be which seat to take in the car on the way to school. Lyrics like these make the […]
