Wednesday Guest List: Eat This, Horse

Photo credit Natasha Fourie, check out her photoblog.
Guest posts are going to be a new thing we are going to start doing around here on a regular, well, more like fortnightly basis with some of our local artists who we believe to have respectable musical tastes. They're gonna tell you sheeps what made them the musicians they are today. Baa.

For our first installment I got hold of John from Eat This, Horse!, self-quoted as "probably the 3rd most gangsta band in Cape Town". I can only assume that they are tailing the only other "birthed prodigies" of our land besides me and Digital Disko, the razor sharp lyrical wonderland know as Kallitz. Some sarcasm.

Now for some cast-iron downloadable music cleverly stolen from various Nigerian cigarette vendors on Sea Point Main Road. Hey, who's complaining at R15 a box...

Top 5 Albums: "Heard in the last year, in no particular order"

1. You Can't Hide Your Love Forever - Orange Juice
2. Ys - Joanna Newsom
3. 69 Love Songs - The Magnetic Fields
4. Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? - of Montreal
5. Night Ripper - Girl Talk

Top 5 Songs: "Of all time (Because my favourite songs of all time are sort of interchangeable and transient, you knows?)":

1. This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody) - Talking Heads
2. Only Skin - Joanna Newsom
3. Blueberry Boat - The Fiery Furnaces
4. Sister Ray - The Velvet Underground
5. Ballad of a Thin Man - Bob Dylan
"A whole lot of other shit, actually, probably. I guess it doesn't matter THAT much? It's quite hard to succinctly distinguish what has led you to do ANYTHING, and the creation of music is sort of the same, I think. Or no different, rather."
