“The last eight years have taken us to some incredible parts of the World, from Goa to Tasmania… Orkney to Walla Walla. The fact that we get to visit these places, meet fascinating and inspiring people, and play our songs everywhere we go is pretty much the whole reason we started this band in the first place – you guys know how much we love touring, we’ve mentioned it enough times!
Well, it is with great excitement, that we can announce one of our most anticipated adventures yet, South Africa! Many times we’ve tried to make it work, but this coming February, it’s happening and we couldn’t be happier about it. We’ve got a handful of shows across the country, some really great artists sharing those stages with us.
We know it’s been a long time coming and we hope to see you there to toast the occasion.
T, W, M & B.

These are some photographs of the first ever woodstock festival which was held 15 to 18 August 1969 and had over 400 000 people attending. Woodstock was definitely one of the pivotal moments in music history and thank God for the photographers who were there recording history in the making.
Enjoy theses legendary photos
This years OppiKoppi was quite a different experience. Firstly, I’d love to know how or who stopped people from shouting OPPI and retaliating KOPPI – purely to kiss them right on the face and sincerely thank them.
That wasn’t the only difference at this years, Mr. Vos Vos, in fact, as NAZ sees it, it was a distinctively different experience. This year, we didn’t have any interviews and almost no responsibilities. It was beautiful to be freely intoxicated before the sunset. Red eye Jedi – without stuttering some arb questions to the likes of Sibot or The Kiffness.
In fact, a month prior to Oppi we had yet to even request media passes from the lovely, Erin Crous, thankfully she was kind enough to allow us last-minute entrance into the festival.
This was the first event in 6 months that Brendon and I were both able to attend (it’s kinda hard to report on something from China, china.) Continue reading
Last weekend was a world first as Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May started their solo world tour after being sacked by the BBC. I think they have done something great by getting back up and getting on with what they do best, talking about and play with awesome cars. They also had special guest Ken Block and his customised 1965 Mustang there to blow the socks off the crowd.
Well It’s almost the weekend, So heres something to keep you busy for the final push.
So who doesn’t like the occasional brewski, and even better a refreshing cold one of the craft variety to make for an even better fermented freshness.
