Swedish band Tuck­ers Lilla Kapell set to share bill with ‘the wed­ding band from hell’

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODVIBRATIONS -

hip­ster ears might hear a kin­ship with Go­gol Bordello or Jewish Ukrain­ishe Fre­und­schaft and fans of rock es­o­ter­ica will glean a kind of sim­i­lar­ity to The Len­ingrad Cow­boys.

Also on the Cape Town bill are The Hip Re­place­ments, once dubbed “the wed­ding band from hell”. The band boasts a fam­ily-tree of con­nec­tions to South Africa’s rock ’n’ roll past: it com­prises Mark Ben­nett, ex of Cor­po­ral Pu­n­ish­ment, Cherry Faced Lurchers and Ber­noldus Nie­mand on vo­cals and gui­tar; Al­lan Lusk of No Exit and The Spec­tres on bass and vo­cals; jour­nal­ist An­drew Don­ald­son on slide gui­tar and man­dolin; Har­vey Roberts, ex of The Dy­nam­ics, on sax­o­phone and vo­cals, and Paul Areal, Roger Lucey and Piet Botha on drums. Willem Moller, pro­ducer and gui­tarist, and ex of Gere­formeerde Blues Band and Big Sky plays lead.

Tuck­ers Lilla Kapell play with The Hip Re­place­ments and guests Willem Moller and Jan­nie van Ton­der to­day at Speed­way Café (Tafel­berg Tav­ern), Rood­e­hek Ter­race, off Hope St, Gar­dens, 9pm, R50, book on 084 577 2418).
