Simply Joyous...


Today's randomness from the shuffle features Peel faves, The Four Brothers. I haven't listened to this track for years and had forgotten how wonderful the interplay between the lead and rhythm guitars is. Joyous was the first word that sprung to mind when this came on. Life affirming, vibrant, exciting music from Zimbabwe's finest. As soon as this came on I was immediately transported back to the late 80's when both The Four Brothers and The Bhundu Boys were being heavily championed by Peel, recording four sessions for his show and playing at his surprise 50th birthday shindig. Today's song also made it onto Peel's Desert Island Discs...

  1. I saw them on the Treat Your Feet package tour in Cambridge. What year would that have been? 1989 or so? Blimey. Sounded great then and still does.

  2. Never managed to catch them live but did have the pleasure of seeing the Bhundu Boys a couple of times.

  3. This is such a great song, as soon as it starts it brings a smile to my face. Absolutely terrific. No idea what they're saying, obviously, hopefully something about the "Capitaliost pig-dogs enslaving the workers, but we will rise and be free"???
