FILM REVIEW: Searching for Sugar Man – Times LIVE



If you’re a South African of a certain age, it’s almost certain you grew up listening to the music of Rodriguez.

Here in South Africa and across the way in the antipodes – by way largely of South African expats, one assumes – the gravelly tones of the songs from his 1971 album Cold Fact were the background to braais, joint-passing car trips and parties.

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.
