On New Year’s Eve 2010 / 2011 I made my way to the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria for the Tuks FM Motherle$$ party. Some top South African bands were playing: Die Antwoord, Van Coke Kartel, New Holland, Pity the Fool, Frankie Fire, Yesterday’s Pupil and Ashtray Electric. The crowd of about 8,000 people were treated to an excellent ensemble of tunes. One of the highlights of the evening were definitely Ashtray Electric. This Western Cape based band are releasing their 2nd album entitled Measured in Falls on the 11th of June this year. They will also be making their way to a city near you to promote the album, so watch this space for details of the 2011 Ashtray Electric CD Launch tour. I snapped this photo of Ashtray Electric on stage at Tuks FM Motherle$$ and it has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 26th of May 2011.
