No One's Arc
NoOne's Arc has been providing South African audiences with musical pleasure for almost a decade. Consisting of 6 members, these individuals all hail from different backgrounds and their musical interests span a wide spectrum. The music of No One's Arc is a fusion of many different styles and genres creating a sound which is uniquely their own. Although inspired by the greats of the international music scene, the band blend their influences with their african roots.
Hailing from the small town of Somerset West, The Tickets immediately come across as one of the most un-Cape Town band you’ll come across this side of the country. Once the music starts it's a torrent of energy with call and response dueling vocals and choppy guitars causes the band blasting out this mathy drone whilst chanting in unison.

Zinkplaat, die Afrikaanse rock’n roll troebadoere, verbreed voortdurend hul horisonne. Sedert hul begin op die skoolterrein in 2001 en hul aanvanklike ‘plaasrock’ klank het hulle ontwikkel tot die voorlopers op die gebied van oorspronklike rock.
Gestroop van die bekendheid en gewildheid, lê die ware hart van Zinkplaat – pittig, ongekunstelde baanbrekers, hoopvolle waarsêers, sielsverrykende poësie, Ubuntu-ideale en ‘n gees wat ‘n hele geslag besiel. Woon ‘n mens een van hulle konserte by, sien jy hoe oud en jonk saam sing en dans en hulself inleef in die treffende klanke en lirieke.

Winner of MK`s Best Newcomer Award 2009 and voted to have the potential to be SA`s next musical export, Ashtray Electric have been leaving their gutsy footprints at venues and festivals nationwide. Their music is laced with engaging melodies and packed with galloping riffs and attitude. Add to that their signature sleazy-slow motion sexiness and you`ll find this unique package of four musicians that have skillfully made their mark.
