Mark Seymour finished school, went to war and then came back.
Mark Seymour lived through a massacre. He painted pictures and wrote songs, threw dice and invented chords.
Then he stepped onto the corporate battlefield and moved on, but the music was never very far away.
Now almost 15 years later, after years of tinkering, false starts and idling, Mark gathered a bunch of friends and musicians into a studio with a cracking producer, and over the few weeks they breathed new life into the songs, lyrics and arrangements and produced the 5-track EP which is being launched at Café Roux, Bring home the human.
Ross Campbell and Jeremy Daniel are the rhythm section of pioneering 90s indie rock band Fetish. They still do many music and video projects together, and were drafted into provide a groove and a springboard for the songs. Ross also acted as producer on the album, along with Cape Town legend, Andrew Ford.
We are delighted to be able to play the new album to you in its entirety, and to share the stage with The Night Sky Zombies, a local 5 piece from Cape Town’s – Southern Suburb. The band members discovered their shared passion for music during a fire side chat at the Night Sky Camp Site in Bonnievale. From the embers of that fire, The Zombies now stand ready to deliver a blinding performance of their very own brand of Suburban Folk Rock. As veterans of live performances, from blazing solos in the local kerk, to tapping out paraddidles in the school band, this collaboration will ensure you kick off the weekend laid back and well entertained.
**PLEASE NOTE: DINNER FROM 6.30/7PM. SHOW TO START AT 8.30PM
