Everything was going fine, and then…

…suddenly a modern day Charlie Chaplin turned up in a pullover that his mum had knitted and then given him as a Christmas gift.

I jest, obviously. This is Cape Town’s P.H.Fat with “City of Thieves”.

Yes. They’re white. Yes. You’re amazed. They sound black, but they look white.
And as final proof that your eyes are actually correct, they dance white too.

It’s been getting a lot of airplay and although it’s a little outside the usual demographic for this blog, I can like to stretch your boundaries a little. (Dad: Don’t even bother)

The MK video demonstrates some of Cape Town’s nicest places and elements of its fetid industrial heartland.

  1. Ha! I can to like this song! A lot!!
    It amazes me how much BETTER South African music, of all genre’s, generally are than their overseas (American) counterparts.
    That said: since Afrikaans music does not have counterparts in other parts of the world, that would explain why its so bad.
