With Nelson Mandela in the hospital, I’ve had South African on my mind, so it’s time for some Johnny Clegg & Savuka:
Friend of ours, his first job out of college was at the Bophuthatswana National Provident Fund, in the nominally independent tribal homeland of B, doing data processing in Rational Cobol (Ratbol). Sent us some Juluka records. It was apparently a crime for them to perform on stage in South Africa proper. I still have to remind myself that it’s okay to buy Shell oil.
