Episode 8 of Season 4 aired at 7 pm on 25 Feb 2021. I am very thankful to see the back of February, to be honest, it’s been a really crap month. I was on my last 24 hours of Covid quarantine and I find this shit really affects my mood. This show was a good bit of medicine for anyone who is feeling a bit down. We got straight into it with System of A Down and a wonderful cover of Sabbath’s Snowblind‘ and no it’s not about the weather. Next up we got into some ACDC and worked our way through some good up-tempo rock. Ivan Ivankovic’s demonstrated once again what a great guitarist he is, The Dead Daisies took care of some new stuff, and then we went all the way back to ’73 for a dose of The Rolling Stones off Goats Head Soup.
We took in some metal nice and early in the form of Parkway Drive and let The Clash and The Stranglers do the UK Punk honours. Stevie Ray Vaughan made a rare appearance with ‘Cold Shot‘and it was fitting to follow Stevie with one of the only guys who can play Stevie like Stevie, South Africa’s own Dan Patlansky.
I felt the need to stick the knife into Coca-Cola after this week’s judgemental piece of wokeness and dedicated Fokofpolisiekars ‘Vernietig Jouself‘ to them. Other than that it was business as usual, with a nice little 3-play near the end featuring Johnny Thunders, Asylum Kids & Matthew Good Band.
