Rarity from the Vas Vault!!

Updated: Sep 7, 2022

Without question THE LOUDEST BAND I have even seen live in South Africa - EVERY TIME! Right out of the gate these dudes pissed the proverbial Rock 'n Roll attitude, and then some! Sadly, after a revolving door of lineup changes, they 'burnt out' before literally setting the entire country alight!

The Blast - "Rock 'n Roll". Recorded live at the band rehearsal room in Berea, Johannesburg, March 1989. The cassette features several raw and raucous tracks, mostly originals with a smattering of covers.

Line up:

Roland Westgate - Bass

Mike Mills - Guitars

Peter Dreyer - Guitar

Debbie Reeves - Backing Vocals

Glenn Thornhill-Fischer - Vocals

Vince Vitale - Drums

Also, thanks to Gus and Scott Oosthuizen for their assistance in pulling this together.
