Little did they know that they would go on to become one of the most loved rock bands South Africa has ever seen; known for their high energy stage shows and unique musical sound which combines Rock, Punk, Reggae, Metal, Funk and Jazz.
They played their first gig in September 1994 in a small bar in Stellenbosch and released their first album, “Neanderthal 1” the following year.
Since then, this platinum selling, award winning band have gone on to record albums that contain some of our countries most beloved anthems. They have headlined every major South African music festival, and performed at some of the most exciting international festivals in Europe.
In 2015, Thinking Owl Films, in association with Sony Music Entertainment Africa, released a powerful documentary film which tells the story of the band’s early beginnings, touching on the crippling censorship of that time, and then the liberation of 1994 and how, for these kids, there was finally freedom in music.
In April 2018, twenty five years after their first show, and two decades after the release of “Blue Eyes”, the song that redirected the trajectory of the band, SNG released their single “Beautiful Evolution” and its B Side “Best Friends, Best Enemies”.
