Rodriguez, again and again!

Rodriguez' show was so mesmerizing last Saturday 6th June that we keep receiving great reviews about it! Here is the impression of our friend at Put Me On It , a great blog about culture and music in London. And we couldn't not be on it, of course!

Do you know about Rodriguez? Well to be honest, I don’t know much about him. I know a couple of his tracks. He’s an old school (born 1942) Detroit resident. He's a psyche rock /acoustic, synthed out badman! His album 'Cold Fact' was recorded and pretty much forgotten about in 1969. Rodriguez kinda disappeared after his second album, recorded in London in 1970, but over the years he has acquired a cult status. Especially in SA where he has become a hero.

He is an amazing lyricist:

Sugar man, won't you hurry
'Cos I'm tired of these scenes
For a blue coin won't you bring back
All those colors to my dreams
