Green Pop Goes Artistic

A few weeks ago, I helped out Green Pop with a reverse graffiti campaign. It was for a good cause, very creative and a lot of fun. We used a high pressure water-hose on walls near the main foot traffic area of UCT.

I made a real Hand-Cut (Hand-Drawn) Stencil to test out, the cardboard did not last long against the high pressure water-hose but it still came out looking fresh and don't worry you will be sure to see it again, its getting vectored...

Here is a really cool video that was shot during the day, it shows a bit more of the process -

or better yet,

Help the cause go to....

'The Beat' Mash Up Cape Town and Less Than Two Weeks Later I Stumble Across Their 1st Album On Wax In Durban...

'The Beat' (known in North America as The English Beat) were formed in Birmingham, England in 1978, during a period of high unemployment and social upheaval in the UK. They are a 2 Tone Ska band who's songs fuse Ska, Soul, Reggae, and Punk Rock.

I had the opportunity to cover their Nov. show in Cape Town, it was a classic performance and I linked with the band for a bit after the show. Ranking Roger was a 'spot on chap' and his son Ranking Junior has got jokes, not to mention he is a sly one with the ladies.

A local print music guide was doing a review and needed an image, this friend of mine hit me up last min because they didn't have decent pictures to supply the mag. So I sent them 2 or 3 images before leaving for DBN, they used one of them but I was not around when the mag was out. While in DBN funny enough I found their 1st Album on Vinyl for like 20 Rand (about 3 Dollars) at a pop-up record shop.

When I got back another friend had cut out the article and saved it for me. Here it is along with a few other images of the night. I will be uploading a Funky-Bad'Man Vinyl Mix next week with one of the rad tracks until then,
