Born in 2003 in the shadow of Table Mountain, Bed on Bricks celebrates their 10th birthday this year. A band that has appeared on stages all around South Africa, headlining many local festivals and touring the country, while also releasing three studio albums, namely ‘Humanarium’ (2003), If You See Kay (2005) and Royal Honey (2008), as well as a live acoustic album, ‘Takeaways’ in 2006.
Singer Mike Hardy’s lyrics are smart, positive, informed and questioning. Whether they are rapped or sung, they remain inspired by life in urban Cape Town. Schalk van der Merwe’s bass, Tim Rankin’s drums and Dave van der Linden’s guitar are played with passion and energy.
They have been on a forced sabbatical for 2 years after Dave broke his hand and has been unable to play.
Bed on Bricks are into the sweetness of life at the Southern tip of Africa and playing their instruments for the love of it. And man do they love it!
