Praise for ‘Verkeerdevlei’:
“This is a new Waste Land, a place where Busi Mhlongo sings lullabies to the ghost of Thurston Moore’s bloodied guitar and Jim Jarmusch’s Ghost Dog battles Johnny Mad Dog’s adolescent hounds of hell … It’s a place where heroes – from Sam Nujoma, Chris Hani, Fidel Castro and the Dalai Lama to Leonard Cohen and Breyten Breytenbach – come unhinged, their singing severed from our history, their songs lost, or perhaps unsung by a nation splintering at the seams. … Verkeerdevlei is for the beautiful ones not yet born, a generation that comes after the fact – after the rainbow, the deluge, the endless corruption, the mounting violence, the near-wilderness and the suicidal flood of disinformation that promises to drown us all.” – Miles Keylock, Rolling Stone ****
“Die inhoud is opreg, by uitstek oorspronklik en bowenal verruklik mooi.” – Pieter Redelinghuys, Die Burger *****
“If bulimic cityscapes and arteries clogged with poets and vagrants made love to the desolate veld, the bastard that clawed its way out would be Verkeerdevlei. … Verkeerdevlei is undoubtedly one of this year’s most interesting local albums.” – Max Barashenkov, Obrigado
“…’n verontrustigende kombinasie van musiek en digkuns.” – Kayla Roux, Grocott’s Mail.
