Die Vloek Van Die Kitaar 1979-2001

This CD compiled by Dirk Uys in March 2002, and released by EMI in May 2002, is now long out-of-print, but inspired by Marq Vas I have linked to the songs that are available to download on Rhythm Music Store.

This album collected the A to Z of Afrikaans Rock (from Akkedis to Karen Zoid) at the time, as well as most of its genres like blues, boogie, industrial, punk, hip hop, rap, reggae, metal and more.

I seem to remember Dirk telling me at the time that he would have liked to include a David Kramer  song but wasn’t able to get permission. Not sure what song it was, but I have included David Kramer’s Bokkie Bokkie as a digital bonus track.

Blommetjie Gedenk Aan My – Anton Goosen (via 1001 South African Songs You Must Hear Before You Go Deaf)

Blommetjie Gedenk Aan My – Anton Goosen Blommetjie Gedenk Aan My – Anton Goosen (Say it with flowers) Anton Goosen is another of those anomalies on South African music, especially amongst the Afrikaans singers. In a similar vein to David Kramer, he could write those almost trite songs that have us overdosing on saccharine.
