The Shadow Club Photographed by Pieter Vosloo

An ode to The Shadow Club, one of the best bands that I have seen not just in South Africa but internationally as well. Its the blues structure mixed with this generations raw, rugged fueled disaster. 

I first witnessed The Shadow Club a few years ago when there was a huge street party in Johannesburg, I didn't even know who the band was (wasn't getting out much those days) only to be heavily impressed and super surprised. Jack Daniel bottles flying around, leather jackets, old guitars with the rock and roll sound that I had missed, pure vocal tracks with the smokey undeniable tune, as if I was back in the days that Zeppelin used to play but it wasn't the 60's, it was now.
