VAN DER WANT & LETCHER (article first published : 2002-09-25)

It has been almost four years since popular duo Matthew van der Want and Chris Letcher made one of their rare trips to Durban to perform.

Armed with a new album and a saddlebag full of new songs, they are set to appear in Durban on the night of September 28 for a performance at top local nightspot Frequency. The gig forms part of the national tour in support of their album Bignity recently released by Sheer Sound.

Bignity has been hailed by the critics and described as “…quite easily the best South African non dance music album I've ever heard. Not this week, or this year, but ever. ... “ (Nathan Zeno, SL Magazine); “Explore the magic, but let it lead you and guaranteed it will excite you if intelligent music is what drives you" (Jason Curtis, Top Forty); “… almost every song on the album is excellent" (Tanya Farber, The Star Tonight) .

Performing with Matthew van der Want and Chris Letcher on September 28 will be the east coast country stylings of Lilo; the live electronic soundscapes of Captain Asthma and the abstract cinema of Jan-Henri Booyens.
