S03E20 – Mugg & Bean Generation


The Mugg & Bean Generation by Tune Me What? on Mixcloud

Are you young, constantly on the move, connected, online, looking for the next big thing, and living fast and spending faster? In America, they’d call you “The Starbucks Generation”. In South Africa, well, that might be the “Mugg & Bean Generation”, but whether or not these generational traits translate across the ocean, there sure as hell is a brilliant indie-alternative rock scene in South Africa to provide the soundtrack to well, whatever you want to call it!

So, in this fast and furious episode of Tune Me What?, we feature the music of:

  • Anti Retro Vinyls
  • Bye Beneco
  • Card on Spokes
  • Go Barefoot
  • John Wizards
  • Kongos
  • Locnville
  • Nonku Phiri
  • Parlotones
  • Shortstraw
  • Zebra & Giraffe

We really appreciate your feedback. We’re always open to suggestions and even requests! If you’re a South African musician living or touring internationally, do let us know about your concerts, album releases or tours – we’d love to give you a punt on the show.
