Rodriguez Cold Fact

From Clive Mentzel

I was out last night in the Portobello Road and popped out of the Market Thai (a pub at the top end of the road where we were having an end of year party) to go to Rough Trade to browse through the vinyl… and what I found took me back so far; a copy of Rodriguez’s Cold Fact. How awesome, it stared at me on the rack and I at it and we sort of had this formalin-suspended moment, masses of ancient history flooding back between us, pristinely preserved vistas of past times spent with this record (yes it was a record back then, a bit scratched and crackly)… I’m listening to it this morning and having read the sleeve notes thought I would say thank you for reviving this, getting it back on CD.

Playlist Creator & Web Marketer. The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including which he founded in 1999.
