Ons Klyntji is looking for you

16/05/2013

Ons Klyntji 2011

Bush Radio volunteers Toast Coetzer, Erns Grundling and Clive E Smith (co-hosts of The Unhappy Hour, Sundays 6-8 pm) are also involved in a small literary zine called Ons Klyntji. They are currently collecting fresh contributions for their next issue, due to be distributed at Oppikoppi music fest in August 2013, where they will also represent Bush Radio as DJs.

Contributions can be on any topic and in any language. When sending poetry, send us your 3 best poems only. Short stories and other articles (eg travel articles, interviews with writers or musicians etc) may not be longer than 2000 words. Photographs, cartoons, sketches and other graphics will be used in black and white and A5 size, so keep that in mind. We also accept book and CD reviews covering African artists only. Deadline for submissions is 10 June 2013. No payment is offered for using your work, but you will receive a free copy of the zine. Ons Klyntji is handed out for free, so no-one makes any money from it. We do it just because we love it! Send your work to sendusyoupoems@gmail.com – include some biographical info about yourself, and your Twitter, Facebook or website if you have.

Ons Klyntji has a long history. It was first published in 1896 and is regarded as the first fully Afrikaans magazine ever. It disappeared somewhere in the 1900s but was resurrected by anti-establishment writer and singer Koos Kombuis by the mid 1990s as a vehicle for his own and other folks’ writing. It soon became a cult zine which featured some of the most cutting edge poems, fiction and graphics of its time. By 2000 Koos passed it on to Erns Grundling and Toast Coetzer, who have nursed it along and developed it to become a multilingual magazine which aims to publish writings which no commercial publications will dare to publish. Established writers, school kids, students, punks, hip hop artists, photographers, cartoonists and graphic artists have all found a home in it for some of their most far-out offerings.

The Wrong Rock Show at Roskilde 2011

11/07/2011

Roskilde Festival in Denmark, first staged in 1971, is the largest North European culture and music festival and attracts about 75,000 festival goers every year (excluding day-visitors). It is run by a non-profit association, assisted by 25,000 volunteers and every year it donates all profits to humanitarian and cultural purposes. This year, a Bush Radio t-shirt was also spotted walking around the festival site between 30 June and 3 July, when Botha of the Wrong Rock Show attended the festival for a second time.

The Orange Stage has become the symbol of the Roskilde Festival

While the headline acts are always the biggest attraction for the majority of music fans attending, the value of the four-day festival is the exposure fans get to different genres and artists. South Africa was represented this year by Shangaan Electro, who had a stunned crowd on their feet before they knew it, and as the beats got faster and faster no-one could even think of stopping for air. Bands in the 2011 line-up that have been played on the Wrong Rock Show included PJ Harvey, Swans, The Strokes, Battles, Kings Of Leon, The Raveonettes, Congotronics vs. Rockers, TV On The Radio, Zun Zun Egui, The Walkmen, Iron Maiden, Lykke Li, Weekend, Anna Calvi, Kurt Vile & The Violaters, Spids Nøgenhat, Screaming Females and The Ex.

While at the festival, Botha also recorded a special Finnish Wrong Rock Show with Henrik Gustafsson and Jan Larsson, two music gurus who respectively attended their 14th and 22nd Roskilde Festivals!  This special episode will be broadcast tonight (11 July 2011) between 10PM and midnight, and will feature two hours of rock music from Finland not often heard outside Northern Europe. For more information, visit the show’s Facebook page.

PJ Harvey was one of the highlights for the alternative rock fans (left) and the Swans put up one of the best concerts of the festival to a small group of hardcore fans
