Three days, 31 acts and two stages translated into one massive celebration of non-mainstream music – Rock the South 2014. All photos by Sarah Falzon. Once a year, the south comes alive with the sound of music. Only, it’s not the Julie Andrews kind, but a rollicking fusion of punk, rock, indie, ska, hip hop […]

5 reasons you have to go to Xtruppakawi

xtruppakawi

1. They averted the rise of the robots with a lethal mix of vulgar vocals and questionable costumes. A triumph few fans are aware of, as the two bands are known for their crippling shyness and modesty.

And to one of my favourite track of theirs none the less, Bobby Funk (though my topmost favourite remains Can I – sadly I couldn’t find a clearer vid than this, which really doesn’t do justice to it). The vid was shot during the band’s Bill Bite (ahem, love the name guys) sessions. The vid […]
