Rarity from the Vas Vault!!
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.
Roland Westgate - Bass
Mike Mills - Guitars
Peter Dreyer - Guitar
Debbie Reeves - Backing Vocals
Glenn Thornhill-Fischer - Vocals
Vince Vitale - Drums
