Between Rock & a Hard Place: A Memoir by Carsten Rasch
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 34 MB
Overview: The ’80s in South Africa was a schmangled clusterfuck of a decade. Resistance against the apartheid government was mounting while violence swamped the beleaguered land. Change was undeniably in the air. As the country heaved and hummed with resistant energy, in Joburg, Cape Town and Durban, tiny pockets of anti-apartheid whiteys were using music and parties to stage a punk-driven uprising against the tyrannical government. With guitars instead of guns and an insatiable hunger for freedom, the state saw this bizarre subculture as a hive of hedonists and drugged-up nihilists. However, this anarchic collection of guitar-wielding, pill-munching, dope smoking musicians and their followers were in fact a second front in the struggle against apartheid.
