GREAT GARAGE BANDS OF YORE

GGBY is a series of stories about bands we played in back in South Africa. We hope that the words and pix will be of interest to anyone who knew the bands or played with us.

EPISODE ZERO: A gripping masturbatory tale of teenage heavy metal heroism, Vaseline, and coming of age on a storm-soaked Benoni veld.

THE BAND THAT MUST NOT SPEAK ITS NAME

EPISODE I: From the Oxford Hotel Technical Nightmare Joll to the Free People's Concert in 7 months, with no drummer, no singer and no songs. Now includes the all-new CLIFF'S COMMENTS. MYSTERY ROACH

EPISODE II: How Roach got to play SA's first-ever Woodstock-style event... PLUS The King of Benoni... PLUS What Ampie from The Blue Chameleons did with his orange... ROACH IN THE VALLEY
