With the media’s gaze fixed on the soccer World Cup, Chomsky Allstars’ new single throws a harsh spotlight on South Africa’s ‘beautification’ of the country in the run-up to the tournament.
Blending punk, blues, dub and Afrobeat, ‘The Beautiful Gain’, with its infectious melody and sublime rhythms, is set to become the ‘Free Nelson Mandela’ of the 21st century.
Fresh from their storming performance at this year’s Strummercamp festival, Chomsky Allstars also feature on the internationally-acclaimed charity CD ‘Shatter The Hotel’, while lead singer Chomsky provides guest vocals on Cut La Roc’s latest album ‘Larger Than Life’, alongside Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody.
