Half Price - Half Price – Straight Outta’ South Africa

Hailing from musical hot spot of Cape Town, South Africa, Half Price has been rocking the South African music scene for over 15 years. The band has toured extensively locally but heretofore U.S. audiences have been clueless to their potent sound and African punk music in general. Which is kind of nuts because when thinking of punk music, one automatically thinks of Africa.

Featuring powerful rock hooks channeling Ozzy, AC-DC, NOFX, Rancid, Offspring and a bunch of other bands you’ve never heard of, Half Price adds just a touch of Ska and Reggae for songs that have razor sharp lyrics ranging from bitingly serious (corruption, inequality, H.I.V., etc.) to fall down funny (people borrowing and ruining your stuff, partying with friends and family, etc.).

Half Price’s Cape Town, South Africa based members are: Homo Pete on main vocals and guitar, Emo Mawk playing guitar & providing backing vocals; The DFG playing bass guitar and backing vocals and Kyle “The Machine” on drums, with some other crazy Africans featuring on some tracks. The distinct backgrounds underlying the Half Price social movement has resulted in a truly unique style of music which is both rocking and catchy.

They claim to be 90% politically incorrect and 10% politically incompetent. Since its inception in Cape Town in 2001, Half Price has caused havoc in South African music circles. Often described as “the best punk band you’ve never seen”, their unique style of punk rock has been accumulating followers and detractors in equal amounts. They’ve been banned from venues and had their applications to festivals burned and yet, like a truck careening out of […]
