The Ten Best SA Rock Tracks of 2006

Yeah, we’re winding slowly towards the end of the year, I figured I’d throw out a nice little list of the SA songs that really got me and my mates jammin during 2006. 2006 has really been a huge year for SA rock – the revival is on and people are starting to pay attention once more.

So here’s my list, ordered from bottom to top:

Both Wickhead and 16Stitch receive honourable mentions, but I still need to get more familiar with their newer stuff.

You may notice that The Hellphones appear twice. They deserve it. Besides, I stick with my East Rand roots.
Agree? Disagree? Think there’s something that I misssed? Shout it out in the comments.

Nice list Shaun. I’m listening to some Hellphones tracks and they’re pretty cool, a The Strokes sound to them which I’m not sure is intentional or a product of their[…] – I just checked their MySpace page and The Strokes are listed as an influence, so there it is. 😉

I was going to say “raw recording”.
