“South African from the waist down.” What’s that all about?
Two things. It’s about what takes root in your head when your name is Silver and you’ve got the fairly mundane job of keeping an eye on people’s cars while they go shopping for organic carrotcake.
And it’s about Silver’s cool little ditty getting picked up off the street by composer Alistair Davis and being shoved under the nose of Gabi le Roux at Kaleidosound recording studio. What happens next is a musical celebration by The Car Guards of a new post-World Cup confidence vibing its way through South Africans.
Have a little listen-see…
I’m liking that. A lot. It’s catchy. And EMI are running with it and it’s going big. And, unless I’m ridiculously delusional, there’s more than a drop of sexual innuendo in that baby, don’t you think? It’s the bit about “when he goes down, she goes down, they go down… when he goes down, it comes right up” that has me going there…
But, hey, maybe I’m wrong. Maybe I’m just far too South African down south.
