THE ZIMBABWEAN’S VOICELESS CAMPAIGN

The Voiceless Campaign for The Zimbabwean
Just under a year ago I featured the wonderful ad campaign for The Zimbabwean by TBWA Hunt Lascaris Johannesburg, a campaign that highlighted the worth of the Zimbabwean dollar bill by using it to create actual billboards, posters and other outdoor advertising, as a meme representative of Zimbabwe’s plummeting socio-economic circumstances. This year, the same agency has been asked to create another campaign for the newspaper, and once again, they have done themselves, The Zimbabwean and the country’s people proud.

ROA - PURE EVIL



Belgium street artist Roa has taken over London’s East End with his massive black-and-white murals of animals, hand-painted on walls of derelict buildings. Starting his work in the quaint cobbled streets of his hometown of Ghent in Belgium, his work now decorates buildings all over Europe and in New York. This year he held his solo debut exhibition at Pure Evil Gallery in London, including original works on A4 paper, locker doors and even street works in the area.

PAN AFRICAN SPACE STATION



I recently heard about the Pan African Space Station from the guy working in Cape Town’s raddest little record store, Mabu Vinyl. He was playing some wacky ‘70s electric jazz by the American jazz legend Chick Corea (look him up), which got me stuck in the store and chatting to this guy as he was mixing. The ‘guy’ in question turned out to be one of Pan African Space Station’s DJs, and none other than the notorious DJ Mighty (above and below). Already sold on his music taste, I had to follow it up and find out more, and this is what it’s all about.

CAPE TOWN EXHIBITION: KILMANY-JO LIVERSAGE



I recently spotted these massive portraits at the The Observatory Festival & Village of Arts Launch and was instantly struck by their street-meets-high art appeal - one which can become a little forced and tired, but in this case, for me, makes a really winning combination.

ANOTHER DOPE AD FROM NANDO’S


So Paris Hilton managed to make even SA’s headlines with her dubious behaviour… getting caught red-handed smoking a joint in PE of all places. And Nando’s (being Nando’s) are once again quick on the draw, coming out with this awesome new ad…

GIG REVIEW: MASTERS OF ROCK FT. DEEP PURPLE

One of the outcomes of South Africa hosting that global sports tournament that shall not be named is the sudden surge in international stars popping up all over SA – all, no doubt, with their eyes on their share of the money-pie. From the UK’s Fatboy Slim claiming to be the official DJ of the WC to the Columbian Shakira heading the official anthem, pillage is indeed in the air. One aspect that I’m more than happy to waive, however, was the recent Masters of Rock tour. When else, in this country, would you be able to see, live, in the flesh, some of the original pioneers of heavy metal and rock music as we know it today?

HALF PRICE: 90% POLITICALLY INCOMPETENT, 10% POLITICALLY INCORRECT

With white supremacist Eugene Terre Blanche’s recent murder and Malema’s boer-killing anthem being the talk of the town, Cape Town punk rockers Half Price live up to their name of not keeping quiet about anything. “I believe Eugene Terre Blanche and Julius Malema are one of a kind, they are both stupid, fascist, racist assholes,” they said. Cheers to that. Here’s the rest of what Half Price have to add to current local politics.
