Pestroy on stage @ RAMFest 2012 Johannesburg
Before The Narrow made their way onto the stage at RAMFest 2012 Johannesburg, it was Pestroy’s turn to entertain the growing crowd of nearly 15,000 people at the festival at Riversands Farm. Pestroy were a crowd favorite and a perfect addition to the line-up on the day. According to their Facebook fan page Pestroy have been spreading the word and fighting the good fight for 13 years now, and remain one of the main pillars in the South African alternative music scene and one of the “Kings of the Underground”. The members of Pestroy are Craig Hawkins (on vocals), Shane Forbes (on bass), Greg “Gump” Russell (on guitar / backup vocals), Dylan Hunt (on drums) and Craig “Gucci” Goudge (on guitar). I vaguely remember seeing them live in 2002 when they performed at one of the Oppikoppi festivals that year. The band hails from Johannesburg (which kinda explains why they were a crowd favorite at RAMFest 2012 Johannesburg). I snapped this photo of Pestroy on stage on the day and it has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 18th of March 2012.
