Thanks to the impact of their 'Fragile' (hardly!) debut on the contemporary SA hard rock scene and its first single, '69 Tea', on the SA charts, Saron Gas finished the year 2000 as the SA noisemakers most likely to be proudly compared to Korn, Rage and Limp. But 'Fragile' rather tipped its (hard) hat to the late Kurt, giving it a slightly older grunge sound and feel. These boys will have to stay on their toes to fend off challenges from the hot, new, young bands like Not My Dog, Jimmy 12" and Roswell Kings. But for now, 'Fragile' is the SA grunge business and Saron Gas have Barney's World™ at their feet.
