Just Jinjer, the Rudimentals & Lark updates

Just to fill you in on some info before the weekend starts, below you’ll find some info on the Rudimentals, Lark & Just Jinjer. The South African music business is a hive of activity, and looking as healthy as a spring chicken!

The Rudiementals have taken most of April off, after their highly successful CTIJF appearance, to try and give themselves some breathing space to do some of the following things:

1. Breathe.
2. Begin editing the live DVD of Kirstenbosch, shot on 18 March 2007.
3. Breathe again.
4. Start mixing the live album recorded on the same date as above.
5. Start working on new songs.
6. Preparing for a full tilt charge until the end of the year.

Upcoming gigs to look out for are Zula Sound Bar on 27 April and the much awaited Mad Caddies gig at Tafelberg Tavern on Thursday 3 May. They will be sharing the opening slots with Half Price and Hog Hoggidy Hog. Doors open at 7pm sharp and the gig is open to all ages. Tickets are R170 at Computicket or R200 at the door.

Just Jinjer will be touring South Africa in November & December this year, I’ll more details about that later, but if you are wanting to book one of South Africa’s top bands, this info will save you quite abit of international travel costs! They’ll already be here! Wundaful stuff!

And finally LARK launch the re-release of their ‘Mouth of Me’ EP in Gauteng.

While LARK are busy road tripping and winning awards, they have also been in studio remixing and remastering their ‘Mouth of Me’ EP that sold out at the beginning of last year.

The EP will have the original 6 tracks remixed to include their drummer as well as three new tracks, ‘Black Swan’, ‘Weights’ and ‘Heroin Mary’. Included in the release will be their award winning music video ‘Moonlight’ and a dolby surround sound mix of ‘Moonlight’ as well as two remixes of the tracks ‘Grey Evening’ by Mr Sakitumi and ‘Half Eaten’ by Jacob Israel.

The EP was recorded at Sound and Motion Studios in Cape Town and will be released through JUST MUSIC nation wide in the coming month. The band have decided to launch in Gauteng first and then in Cape Town at a later date as there is something special being planned for the band’s hometown fans.
The launch dates are as follows:

2nd MAY – Tings n Times (with Jacob Israel) – Pretoria
3rd MAY – Tings n Times – Pretoria
4th MAY – 88 – Johannesburg
9th MAY – Café Barcelona – Pretoria
10th MAY – Back 2 Basix – Johannesburg

The band will also be doing shows at The Wanderers Club in Johannesburg on the 5th of MAY and at TEMPOS (21:00) in Johannesburg on the 6th of MAY.

Here's a little treat - Just Jinjer live in Johannesburg in 2006.

As I said - have an awesome weekend!
