|31. MONA LISA: DIE MOOISTE LOVE SONGS - KOOS KOMBUIS|
Once again Koos comes out tops with this pastiche of Da Vinci's masterpiece. Everyone's had a go at poor Lisa, but never with a bottle of Tassies.
|32. THE RISING TIDE - BRIGHT BLUE
'What do you reckon guys, if we chuck a few bars of N'kosi Sikelel'i into "Weeping" do you think the censors will notice?' The creative process in action.
|33. LOVE KILLS - ROBIN AULD
Were male nipples banned in the old South Africa? A moody Robin in a grainy black & white photo offset by the bright red heart makes for a memorable image.
|34. JOHNNY CALLS THE CHEMIST - FALLING MIRROR
A bizarre cover from a bizarre but highly talented group. The photo negative image and the capsule shaped album title & group name add to the druggy theme of the album. And for those of you who have always wondered what the Chemist looked like, she's second from the left on the back cover
|35. HAVE BEANS WILL TRAVEL - THE PSYCHO REPTILES
Great band name, excellent album title and the manic-ly busy cartoon cover seems to sum up the ska-punk Reptiles.
|36. SHADOW MAN - JOHNNY CLEGG & SAVUKA
The blurred legs of the dancers vividly show the action and vibrancy of a Johnny Clegg live performance.
|37. INSIDE - KEVIN ABRAHAM
It's the cheesy simplicity of this cover that appeals. The boemelaar troubedour on this decidedly pink cover is completely un-cool. However read the little word in black, that's where you find out what this albums about.
|38. ON LOAN FOR EVOLUTION - PEACH
The group etched onto the palm of a handprint. It's the glaring red writing on the otherwise black and white cover that gives it that little something.
|39. ONE CAME RUNNING - NO FRIENDS OF HARRY
The black and white colour combined with the angst of the sketched character are typically goth, but the flesh coloured surrounds create a tension for South Africa's Gothfathers debut.
|40. THE ROAD IS MUCH LONGER - ROGER LUCEY
The cartoon folk hippy travels the roads of South African, experiencing a mixture of freedom and oppression, but the main point is the hope of walking off into the sunset as depicted in the centre circle.
