Cold Fiction by John Samson
Cold Fiction by John Samson

“The whole amazing Rodriguez story has inspired many people in many ways, specially with the film ‘Searching For Sugar Man’ bringing this moving story of this unique musician and his music to a whole new international audience. My good friend John Samson, an ex-South African now living in London, was inspired a few years ago to write a series of short stories that take the evocative lyrics from the ‘Cold Fact’ album as their starting point, and then proceeds to weave a series of sweet, strange, touching, and sometimes weird tales from this emerging writer’s extremely fertile brain. And always looming in the background of these tales is that man in black with the hat and the guitar, sometimes involved sometimes not, but always relevant, just like Rodriguez.” – Stephen “Sugar” Segerman, August 2012

Author:

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 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 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.
