About the Bands
The Shabs are a folk punk band from Cape Town. Having gigged extensively across South Africa and Europe for the last 5 years, they deliver a tight, captivating set that blends sincere melodic sing-along folk with the raw energy and DIY ethos of punk rock. Drawing influences from artists such as Frank Turner, Erik Peterson and Against Me!, the band never ceases to get a crowd to throw their fists into the air and sing along to their anthemic tunes. Since the release of their debut album Folk Is Dead, the band have toured relentlessly around South Africa as well as two very successful European tours (UK, Germany, Czech Republic and Switzerland).
Rambling Bones is a four-piece band emerging the sprawling metropolis that is Johannesburg. Originally a solo project of Jay Bones, the evolution towards a band was a natural one, with four friends meeting every Wednesday for what they called ’musical therapy’ sessions. Folks might be tempted to say that the ‘sound’ of Rambling Bones is that of Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Against Me!, Mumford & Son, Iron & Wine or maybe Father John Misty. The Ramblers have played around the country and been in invited to and performed at many prestigious festivals such as Oppikoppi, DrakeFest, White Mountain Folk Festival and FORR.
All These Wasted Nuts started as a lo-fi recording project, somewhere in 2011, born out of songs that did not fit. Genre
Lo-Fi, Anti-Folk, Acoustic, Noise, Folk Punk, Punk Rock.
