    Apartheid-era music censorship at the SABC

    My curiosity was titillated by the fact that the last track on side B had been censored. The LP came from a radio station and the track ‘Up The Chiefs’ by Kid Manotcha had been scratched completely with a nail so it was unplayable. The typography on the label and artwork on the cover had been obscured.

    Interesting article. The rest of that website has some really cool information on Southern African artists, too.

    I know S. Africa and surrounding areas had some good rock and pop groups -- most of which were never heard outside the subcontinent until the internet made it possible for their music to be heard.

    ^^^^ For starters, you could check out the Sun City article on Wikipedia. There is a short list of artists who played Sun City there.
