THE SURVIVALS - The Big Mechanics (1989)

Anneko, ANN(0)686   
Producer: AT 'Rubber' Khoza


Quality bubblegum tunes from the former backing band of Ntombi Ndaba, (together known as Ntombi & Survival) on the Soweto label Anneko. Funky basslines hold it all together, best on tracks like 'Izimpukane' (flies) and 'Hot Stuff'.
