I get to see African bands when I can here too – Kanda Bongo Man several times & the Four Brothers in particular. If you want a recommendation, try & find Rudo Imoto (love is a fire) by the four brothers, and Moyo Wangu (my heart) byt Thomas Mapfumo & the Blacks unlimited. both are somewhere on You tube. not on YT but on the net is Kanda Bongo Man – Sana. let me know if you find them & what you think of them. pepe Kalle’s song Gerant is also good, and Loketo’s Embargo Cheers!
Thanks for the reply. I used to love going to gigs in Harare – Bhundu Boys, Real Sounds, Four Brothers, jonah Moyo, Oliver Mtukudzi & many others. I got to a Reggea Sunsplash in 1989, topped by Culture a tremendous Jamaican band. Several Zim acts were also on the bill – Stella Chiweshe, Robson Banda, & Ilanga and others. I went to wherever the Real Sounds played every time i went into the city. Many VSO volunteers were fans of the very vibrant music scene which flourished around that time.
NO WORRIES. I AM TRYING TO ACQUIRE SOME OF THE TRACKS FROM “GET REAL”.. OLD IS GOLD, YOU’RE RIGHT. MUSIC TODAY IS FOR THE MOST PART – HORRENDOUS. THOSE ARE VALUABLE MEMORIES U HAVE MY FRIEND!
I am trying to get hold of a copy or Get Real via amazon on CD if I can. I am also trying to get hold af another zim masterpiece – Thomas Mapfumo & the Blacks Unlimited, Corruption CD recorded in 1989.
i became friends with the Real Sounds & rarley paid to get in! Most of them were from Zaire (now DRCongo) & had married/lived in Zim for years. They were contemporaries of Franco another Congolese great. Listening to them again brought back wonderful memories for me – Thanks for that!
THANK YOU. I AM AFRAID I DON’T HAVE THAT PARTICULAR ALBUM (ALTHOUGH I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO!). YOU ARE QUITE LUCKY TO HAVE SEEN THEM PLAY LIVE!
sorry i meant VSO volunteer from 1989 – 1991
can you upload some more of their songs please? do you have the Get Real
album(s)? particularly the song Omba one of my faves. I used to watch these guys ” 7 miles hotel in Harare when i was a VSA volunteer in Zim 1898 – 1991. Also saw them at other venues – Kamfinsa hotel, Club hideout, Jobs nitespot, and originally at the Bradford festival 1988 @ queens hall – great live band, at least 10 of them, a great full sound & they played all night! thanks for posting this
@ArtPro13 So you think they mean that Bobby Robson, the 55 year old manager is ‘going to score at Wembley’ rather than England’s captain Bryan Robson?
wheres the radio 5 version????
Pretty sure it’s Bryan Robson they mean in the song.
It’s far better than the one that twatboy slim murdered. I’d still like to hear the slightly different version they play on the 5 Live world football phone in though.
