Due to the fact that there are more South African rock
albums available on vinyl and CD in Japan than in South
Africa, I have decided to rename this Digest,
the Japanese Ultimate Net Knowledge mail or
JUNK mail for short.
Please reset your filters to accept “junk mail”, otherwise
you will not be able to receive this digest in future.
Unfortunately this does mean that all those other
unwanted e-mails will now come through again, but its a
small price to pay to rediscover the roots of
SA lock and loll.
Still, reading? Good…please note the date!
I’m taking a small break to catch up with myself, so no issue
this week. Next Thursday morning watch your mailbox for
issue number 10 of the SA Rock Digest filled with news,
reviews, interviews, nostalgia and more…

your religion and I will see you next week.
The SA Rock Digest is compiled by Brian “Vagabond” Currin from the
“Too Good To Be Forgotten” internet message board, e-mails from
Digest members and other varied sources.
The opinions expressed here are not always echoed by myself, but I
try to keep an open mind. (After growing up in SA in the 70s and
spending 5 years in the Army, that’s not so easy!)

Surely not, but if you really must, then just send me an e-mail,
saying “I hate SA music”, “I’m bored” or “get my out of here” or
“I’ve had enough” or whatever, I’ll get the idea, eventually.
