After many delays caused by several geographical relocations and some near unintentional geographical relocations… (a long story but it will no doubt make it into the lyrical content of future work)…
I am releasing my new “The Lawnmower EP” on the 30th of August! Yip that is soon!
It’s a four track Cape Town-based, Cape Town-inspired, Cape Town-conceived and if all goes well Cape Town-celebrated collection of songs. All tracks were co-produced with fellow Cape Town musician Robsco (The City, The Kifness, Momentss , Chilled Vibes etc.).
These songs were all written in Cape Town with the exception of the song “Love My People”, which is a dedication to my wonderful friends back home. I miss you all so much and I hope my offering finds you in a good zone. Aweh.
To everyone in London, thanks for letting me tear it up here and being down to boogie.
There will be a launch gig at Bedroom Bar in Shoreditch (East London) on the 30th of August and I will be playing at around 8.30pm. It’s free entry so turn up and get down.
But for now go watch this “making of” video to get a taste of what’s coming!
As a few may have picked up from the occasional lyric reference I count myself a Star Wars fan. This year on May 4th (International Star Wars Day) I got myself into the studio and got messing around with this 1980s Japanese Casiotone organ and long with some drums in the style of ‘Salt-N-Pepa’s here’, just for the effect. 😉
Before I knew it I was overflowing with Star Wars lyrics and a few hours later ‘Mark Hamill Can Handle’ was born. Mark, where ever you are, you are a boss. Thank you for helping to inspire this song.
For those of you who aren’t way to deep into SW, the lyrical content is gonna seem to be non-English. For those people, hang in there folks, I have a couple gritty power rap tracks in the pipeline called ‘Lion Cub’ and ‘Lawnmower’.
For you Star Wars fans. Enjoy this free track, please share it as much as you can and in as many was as you can. Tweet @hamillhimself and let’s get him onboard with the joy fest.

This track did really well thanks to all you wonderful fans! It managed to make its way to Mark Hamill himself. He loved it. Follow the story here!
