Eet Kreef Herleef Music Film Premiere on Sat 4 July

Some of the most talented rockers in Cape Town teamed up to give new life to the late 80`s satirical album -masterpiece EET KREEF!Johannes Kerkorrel and Die Gereformeerde Blues Band made headlines in those tumultuous years and EET KREEF! became one of the top iconic alternative Afrikaans album releases at the time.

The album was recorded at Sunset Recording Studios in 2019 and the process was filmed and produced by Supra Familias and Frank Freeman. The music film titled Eet Kreef Herleef vanaf Sunset Recording Studios consists of the tracks as recorded for the album, as well as interviews with bandmembers Laudo Liebenberg, Frank Freeman, Schalk van der Merwe, as well as Jannie “Hanepoot” van Tonder from the original Gereformeerde Blues Band.

Tune in at 19h30 on Saturday 4 July for the premiere of this extraordinary doccie film. “It`s a good story,” says Frank. “I am a Johannes Kerkorrel fan. I amazed at just how relevant these tunes still are, 30 years later. I thought it would be great to find a way to bring the past and the present together. On the one hand, I wanted to remind people of the rich history of alternative Afrikaans music and at the same time express that there is also a wholesome future for it. The live shows came first and when the opportunity opened up to also record the EET KREEF HERLEEF! Album, we felt that it must be recorded live with all the band members playing together in a room – just like the live shows that we have been playing. We recorded the album in three days. I am proud of what we created. What you hear is us playing and sweating, plain and honest, without too much refinement.”

Liebenberg, after being asked what it feels like to have to fill the legendary shoes of Kerkorrel, said “It is daunting at times, yes, but incredible energy to work with. The original album is meaningful to a lot of people. We did not want to make a ‘tribute album’, but rather offer our own interpretation. Respecting the music and lyrics of the original is key to the result.”

The band:

Laudo Liebenberg – vocals and guitar
Frank Freeman – guitar and vocals
Schalk van der Merwe - bass and vocals
Sheldon Yoko - drummer
Etienne van Rooyen - keyboard
Nicole Mitchell - vocals
