1 August 2013 – The Bone Collectors and Soldier
THE BONE COLLECTORS have been slinging their brand of ribrattling percussive boogie in both the finest and foulest venues in the Cape for the last three years. After doing the rounds on the live scene, there was nothing else for them to do but release their debut album, Black Love – recorded at Fresh Meat Studios. Be sure to grab a copy and catch them live!
SOLDIER is a melodic rock group. The core elements of the music are essentially the traditional rock instruments which are drums, bass, guitars, pianos and vocals. The idea started out in 2009 as a 2-piece acoustic outfit and after gigging for about a year, the idea and sound evolved into a band Movemusic, and now under the name of Soldier. Soldier is currently working on a studio album to be completed in 2013.
