KALAHARI SURFERS: The Eighties Vol. 2
The second collection, from the Recommended vinyl releases of South Africa's most radical white band of the '80s; this one of tracks from the third and fourth releases - 'Sleep Armed' and 'Bigger than Jesus' - with a few tracks from the rare 'Own Affairs' thrown in. The tracks have been re-mixed, re-mastered and re-programmed for this release by Warric Swinney. Songs, intelligently arranged, with razor texts; stolen cultural fragments, tape-work and a very black humour: this is what is so often waffled about and seldom achieved - art and politics. 'This Land', for instance, a scary plunderphone collage, is more eloquent than a lot of speeches. Very glad to have this extraordinary work back in print. Historic documents whose work is not yet done.
