Black Pistol started 2 years ago back in 2014 with Roan Mustang and Stiaan Bruwer. They met by accident on a lazy Sunday in Durbanville, Cape Town at someone’s braai. Stiaan was looking to join a band and Roan was writing songs, looking for the perfect vocalist to suit the music. They decided to start working together and write songs.
With Stiaan on vocals and Roan on guitar, they eventually recruited long-time friend and bassist, Jacques Michael Le Roux. Roan and Jacques is also in another band together called Chris Ross. They recorded their first single, “Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” in mid-July, at Kill City Blues studio in Woodstock, Cape Town, which is run by George van der Spuy (Taxi Violence). The song features Johann Rossouw on drums, who is no longer in the band.
The song is the first single and they’re planning to record their EP in November also at Kill City Blues with a session drummer. The song is mixed and recorded by George van der Spuy and Nicolai Roos. Mastered by Tim Lengfeld.
Have a listen to “Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” below:
This is such a rocking tune! I’m curious to see what Black Pistol gets up to next, let’s hope that they head up to Gauteng soon and play some gigs.
