KKNK Mothership Sessions: EET KREEF HERLEEF! 24 September 2020

By / Entertainment / Friday, 18 September 2020 10:33

Some of the most talented rockers in Cape Town teamed up to give new life to the late 80`s satirical album -masterpiece EET KREEF!Johannes Kerkorrel and Die Gereformeerde Blues Band made headlines in those tumultuous years and EET KREEF! became one of the top iconic alternative Afrikaans album releases at the time.

Frank Freeman, who initiated the project, explains how it all came together: “I recently rediscovered Johannes Kerkorrel`s music and was amazed at just how relevant these tunes still are, 30 years later. I thought it would be great to find a way to bring the past and the present together. On the one hand, I wanted to remind people of the rich history of alternative Afrikaans music and at the same time express that there is also a wholesome future for it.”

“The EET KREEF HERLEEF! shows that we did so far, showed me that people are quite emotionally attached to these songs. It made me realize that we are busy with something more than just a re-interpretation of the music, we are also re-delivering this important music from 3 decades ago, just in another time and context. It is evident that is it still as relevant as back then.”

Liebenberg, after being asked what it feels like to have to fill the legendary shoes of Kerkorrel, said “It is daunting at times, yes, but an incredible energy to work with. We did not want to make a tribute album, but rather offer our own respectful interpretation.”

Freeman says that the shoot for their KKNK Mothership Sessions concert felt very intimate. He says: “Musos often make their best music during rehearsals. This felt very much so at this recording. The space and technical crew were amazing. We all stood in a circle and played our hearts out.”

Jannie Hanepoot van Tonder, from the Gereformeerde Blues Band, listened to EET KREEF HERLEEF! He says: “Excellent renditions of the songs and all involved are top musicians that did great work on the album. What I love most are the songs that you made your own, like “Ry” – it might even be better than the original.”
