This week, Brett sits down for a chat with Stu McLaren, director of Musigooroo, the promotions agency that brings many South African rock acts to London. Apart from being in management and promotion, Stu is a busy session drummer and a veteran of the SA rock scene of the late 90s and early 00s when his band Soulja enjoyed chart success. After moving to the UK, Stu formed The Shotguns with other SA expats and recorded an album in the famous Studio 2 at Abbey Road. Musigooroo has worked with many of the top names in SA rock: Springbok Nude Girls, Ard Matthews, Tailor, Boo! And many others, and Stu has some stories to tell, so join us for a special double-episode in which we play some ace music.
