THIS IS NATIONAL WAKE

quote [ Think the Clash were rebels? National Wake's multiracial lineup set them on a collision course with the South African establishment in the late 1970s and early 80s ]

Very catchy band, apparently a good live act, too, back then.

Absolutely fascinating - their story is such a mirror of what South Africa was like at the time. I was listening to a lot of punk in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and their music fits in very well with what that music was like, but has an interesting twist, which I assume is the African influence they refer to in the documentary. Too bad they did not get wider exposure at the time - I am really enjoying listening to their album as I type this.

This is why I like SE - I learn something new on a regular basis.

Thanks! but mythological posters like Chop-L0gik or Joecam aren't replaceable, right?
