EDITORS’ NOTES

“It's time to wake up now/ Running round this ghost town/ Oh my head's tied up in knots”, Brad Klynsmith coos on the opening line of "Hello Sweet World". It's a sombre opening for a band that's characteristically upbeat and hopeful, and a testament to vocalist Klynsmith’s lyrical talent. So, too, is this debut that spawned several hits and skyrocketed the quartet to stardom. With their air-punching anthems and distinctly Durban flair, Gangs confirmed their status as one of the best pop-rock bands in South Africa.
