FUZIGISH is made up of a few Punk Rock Reggae Misfits from Gauteng, South Africa.
“We are not looking for a title or genre to fit neatly into, but what the hell, here goes it. Our style is DIY-post-steetpunk-swingabilly-death-skank-partycore, cause that sounds crazy mad! It is also always cool to have the words “post”, “-abilly” and “core” in your genre description. Especially with the scene geeks!”

A little about each band
Zebra & Giraffe
Zebra & Giraffe are one of South Africa’s leading alternative rock bands. Since forming in 2008 they have released 3 full-length albums, two of which have won the SAMA award for Best Rock Album. They have also had unprecedented success on National radio with 17 singles being playlisted off their 3 albums.
Gangs Of Ballet
Gangs of Ballet is a Durban band comprising of four musicians and friends - three of which have undertaken studying Music at University level. Their music, which combines their fresh energy with their musically intriguing melodies and arrangements, has a hauntingly anthemic sound which appeals both to the musically-minded as well as to those merely seeking a fun musical experience. Their sound cannot be pinned down to one specific genre but rather experiments with an ecclectic mix of alternative, melodic, anthemic, electronic and dance.
