Roxette rocks Cape Town once again - Roxette stenar Kapstaden gång

30 years later and Roxette can still deliver the goods. It's Monday 8 February in a packed GrandArena, Cape Town (South Africa) and the excitement in the air is contagious. People came out in their droves to see one of the most loved acts performing in South Africa again. I'm at the last show of their short South African tour. As soon as the house lights went down, the stage exploded and the audience were clapping and singing along. The band were zoom mode as they jumped from one hit to another, catering to all fans and their favourite songs. "Hello you fool, I love" drove the audience wild as well as Crash, Boom Bang, Fading Like A Flower, Spending My Time, and my favourite, It Must Have Been Love. The audience did everything Per Gessle told them to do and Marie Fredriksson still charmed fans with her angel voice. And talking about Marie...It would be wrong not to mention her health. She looked so frail on stage in her pure angelic white outfit. She was seated the whole show through and was helped onto stage and off. I felt sorry for her. You could see she wanted to move, wanted to walk on the stage and walked to the fans, but here she is, sitting in a chair. But that didn't stopped her from blowing us away. As frail as she is, she has a powerful voice that give you the chills. I felt like a teenager again when I heard Roxette and their magic music for the first time. It was a magic evening. The perfect start to the week.
[30 år senare och Roxette kan fortfarande leverera varorna. Det är måndag 8 februari i en packad GrandArena, Kapstaden och spänningen i luften är smittsam. Folk kom ut i stora skaror för att se en av de mest älskade akter utför i Sydafrika igen. Jag är i sista show av sin korta sydafrikanska tur. Så snart huset lamporna gick ned, exploderade på scenen och publiken var klappar och sjunger tillsammans. Bandet var zoomläget när de hoppade från en träff till en annan, catering till alla fans och sina favoritlåtar. "Hej du dåre, jag älskar" körde publiken vild liksom Crash, Boom Bang, Fading Like A Flower, spendera min tid och min favorit, det måste ha varit Love. Publiken gjorde allt Per Gessle berättade för dem att göra och Marie Fredriksson fortfarande överlycklig fans med sin ängel röst. Och talar om Marie ... Det vore fel att inte tala om hennes hälsa. Hon såg så bräcklig på scenen i sin rena ängla vita outfit. Hon satt hela showen igenom och fick hjälp på scenen och utanför. Jag tyckte synd om henne. Du kan se att hon ville flytta, ville gå på scenen och gick till fansen, men här är hon, som sitter i en stol. Men som inte stoppat henne från att blåsa oss bort. Så skör som hon är har hon en stark röst som ger dig frossa. Jag kände mig som en tonåring igen när jag hörde Roxette och deras magiska musik för första gången. Det var en magisk kväll. Den perfekta start på veckan.]

Zebra & Giraffe back with hot new song!


"Won't Break Down" is the 2nd single from Zebra & Giraffe's new EP "Slow Motion". It follows the Top 10 single "It's All The Same" and was recorded in Stinson Beach, California and produced by Cian Riordan. As with the 1st single, "Won't Break Down" continues down a more positive path lyrically as the band explores a more Pop-Rock orientated sound. Lead singer Greg Carlin says of the lyrics: “Between the verses and chorus of ‘Won’t Break Down’, I wanted to create a contrast between the desperate and juvenile kind of love I was yearning for when I was 17, and the more mature and balanced love I have now. I guess it’s kind of like a coming of age, but one that took almost 15 years!” The music video for the track was filmed by the band during their time in California. It features behind the scenes action from the recording of their EP at the beautiful and unique Panoramic House - a one in a kind landmark built in the 1960's by a local teacher and his family. The house is built entirely out of recycled building materials salvaged from the great San Francisco Bay area. The current owners of the house carefully upgraded it in 2013 and it now includes a world-class recording studio!


Zonke announced as Lionel Richie local support act

Multi-platinum award winning singer Zonke has carved out a distinctive position in the musical landscape. She’s one of South Africa’s biggest stars and not only performs but also writes and produces her own material. Zonke Dikana has long been one of the most accomplished songwriters on the SA music scene and has written and co-written hits for dance artist Winnie Khumalo, kwaito rapper Thebe, late R&B star TK and also worked with legends like Bongo Maffin and Oskido. With three albums on major international labels under her belt she recently won two acclaimed SAMA awards for Best Live DVD and Best African Adult album. Her latest album Work of Heart has received three Metro Fm nominations in the categories Best Female, Best RnB and Best African Pop album. “I am looking forward to delighting audiences with all-time favourites and new soul hits off my latest album titled Work of Heart. And I am especially excited to be sharing the stage with Lionel Ritchie who I have admired for taking pride in his art. This is an opportunity for South Africans to experience a quality production.” One of the world’s bestselling artists of all time, Lionel Richie has sold over 100 million albums worldwide. As a member of the Commodores, Lionel developed a groundbreaking style that defied genre categories, penning smashes such as “Three Times A Lady,” “Still,” and “Easy.” After writing “Lady” for Kenny Rogers, and “Endless Love” with Diana Ross (which garnered an Academy Award® and a Golden Globe nomination), Motown asked him to do a solo album. The self-titled debut would cement him as a star in his own right and earn him his very first Grammy for the hit “Truly.” The diamond-certified “Album of the Year” winner Can’t Slow Down followed in 1983, giving the world classics such as “All Night Long (All Night),” “Penny Lover,” “Stuck On You,” and “Hello.”

30 years later - Why Roxette still matters - Varför Roxette fortfarande frågor

I was in Grade 11 when I heard Roxette for the first time. I was visiting a friend and he bought this cassette of a group called Roxette which had a heavy radio rotating song, The Look. I actually enjoyed the remix of the song more than the single. I was more into Depeche Mode and those electro music than pop rock, but something about Marie Fredriksson's voice  made me want to hear more. Then I saw the video for Listen To Your Heart (see below). I was hooked. It was the most beautiful song I've heard since Depeche Mode's Question Of Lust. I thought they were going to be a one-hit-wonder band. I was so wrong. It's 30 years later and the petite Marie and band mate Per Gessle are still going strong. Their music has matured. Their audience have changed, but they always got it right to hold on to their original followers and gained new ones. They were already a world phenomenon when they touched down in South Africa in 1995 for their first ever tour of the country and were greeted by 130 00 crazy fans. And they have returned to South Africa over and over again. Even with Marie's health scare and everyone wondered if the band will still continue, they did. They pushed on. Yes, Marie looks frail on stage, well, the last time I saw them live, and her voice is not quite what it used to be, but she fights on. Sing on and entertain us. I don't think there will be ever stopping them. Maybe one day they'll pull an ABBA move an disband never to reunited, but I think they will carry their music torch until the day it dies. I love you Marie. I love you Per. Can't wait to see you on 7 February in Cape Town, South Africa. Thank you that the unknown American exchange student in Sweden who bought a copy of Get Sharp and took it to America where the seed of the band’s international success were planted. And finally, thank you M-Net and all the other sponsors for bringing them back to their legion of fans here.

CD! Various Artists - 2016 GRAMMY Nominees

Blah blah blah - you've heard it before, and now it's neatly packaged on this CD for you to buy. I would give it a skip and rather watch the show, which is always much more entertaining with guest appearances and more. It's a real pity they can't release the actual event as a CD. Well, for those interested, the 22nd instalment  features 21 GRAMMY-nominated artists and songs, including Album Of The Year nominees Alabama Shakes, Kendrick Lamar, Chris Stapleton, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd, as well as Best New Artist nominees Courtney Barnett, James Bay, Sam Hunt, Tori Kelly and Meghan Trainor among others.

Francois Van Coke lends his voice to a global campaign

After the atrocious attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015, The Eagles of Death Metal issued a challenge to other musicians to cover their song I Love You All The Time. “For every cover sold, we pledge to donate 100% of the publishing income to The Sweet Stuff Foundation. We ask that you also donate the money generated from sales of the song to the charity.” Because Francois Van Coke believes unifying and healing power of music, he felt moved by this plea to help raise funds for the victims of the Paris attacks and followed suit. “I felt that I wanted to be a part of the Play It Forward campaign because I was touched by the attacks at the Eagles of Death Metal show.  I also feel a bit of a connection with the band because we played with them when they were in South Africa. I am a huge fan of the band and I Love You All the Time was my favourite song on their new album.  It was an honour to record this song.” Francois’ stripped down and pure version of I Love You All the Time was recorded with Theo Crous at Bellville Studios. Jedd Kossew played guitar on the track. He translated the French part of the original version into Afrikaans: “I translated the French part to Afrikaans to make it more my own, plus my French pronunciation would’ve been bad.”
NB! Great news!  Francois van Coke and Karen Zoid’s super fantastic live DVD, Toe Vind Ek Jou, will hit the stores on the 8 February 2016.

South African rock supporter and award-winning journalist Gary Cool To Host A Show On Team Rock Radio

Eternal South African rock music supporter, and award-winning journalist, Gary Cool, has spread his wings and landed a time slot on international radio station, Team Rock Radio. Always pushing to bring South African music into the spotlight through cutting edge music journalism, this former Capetonian has always been an advocate for local music, and a wellspring of information on anything and everything in the South African music industry. Team Rock Radio is an international, online radio station. DJing alongside the like of Bruce Dickinson, Chris Jericho, the editor of Metal Hammer magazine, and many others, he will be bringing his own South African flavour to the station. Utilising this platform as a springboard for South African artists, he will be showcasing South African music to the world - from interviews to reviews, opinion pieces to debut playlistings, Gary will be giving the South African music scene the international exposure it has always deserved. “I have been fortunate to do a lot in the South African music scene – from having my open letter to Bruce Springsteen result in him touring the country, to emceeing some of the biggest stages in South Africa, but none of that seems as surreal as having a show on Team Rock Radio. This has been a dream of mine for years, and I look forward to sharing my love of South African music on an international stage; hopefully opening doors for South African artists across the globe. Plus, who wouldn’t be excited about being on the same station as Bruce Dickinson?” says Gary Cool. Even after interviewing the likes of the Foo Fighters, Slash, Bring Me The Horizon (and many, many more), Gary’s focus remains firmly on bolstering the South African music scene, with special attention always being given to unsigned and underdog artists.
