Time to Boo! again!

Greetings Boo!dists!

Chris Chameleon, Ampie Omo, and Riaan van Rensburg have all just returned from Amsterdam after having spent 19 intense days recording the new Boo! album. They worked with one of the Netherlands’ most esteemed producers, Frans Hagenaars, in his Studio Sound Enterprise, for nearly 12 hours a day, creating magic. The album will consist of 12 new songs with an updated yet quintessentially Boo! monkipunk sound. The album isn’t quite finished yet with a big final mixing job and mastering ahead of it; but it is sure to be one of the most ground-breaking albums ever seen in South Africa.

Of the experience, Chris Chameleon says: i don’t want to make predictions and talk bigger stuff than i have a grasp of, but i think this album is going to move stuff around a little. it’s absolutely incredible. very puristic in an analog sort of way, but tight, different, new, full where it needs to be and totally not afraid of being minimalistic.

Boo!’s first two gigs since 2004 will be at this year’s Ramfest in Worcester on 27 February and at Ramfest in Johannesburg on 6 March, but don’t expect the new material just yet. Boo! plan on making these two gigs trips down memory lane with favorites such as Lucky, OOAA and Champion and a big dose of outrageous stylings they are so famous for. No, the new material and new look will be kept under wraps for a few more months but there are South African and European tours in the pipeline for this year upon the album’s release in South Africa (record company TBD) and the Benelux countries (through Excelsior Recordings).


There will be an official website launch in May, however fans can check out the site now to sign up for updates on the album and tours at http://www.booband.com. Look below for more links to Boo!-related sites.

Playlist Creator & Web Marketer. The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He served in the military for five years, then spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He was the Content Editor for Rhythm Online, South Africa's first online music store, from 2006 to 2012. He ran Mabu Vinyl, the iconic music store seen in the Oscar-winning "Searching For Sugar Man" film from 2013 to 2019. His voice could be heard on the streaming radio station All Jazz Radio where he hosted the Vagabond Show from 2012 to 2019. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including www.rock.co.za which he founded in 1999.
