Koos Kombuis


Regular price R700.00

Koos Kombuis released his second album, Niemandsland, via Shifty Records in 1989. This followed the highly controversial Vêr Van die Ou Kalahari during a significantly difficult time in South African history. Despite the general feeling of helplessness and chaos in the country, this album served as a voice for a group of alternative-thinking South Africans who were tired of state-led censorship and the oppression of human rights.

This 2022 double record reissue is the first time that the album is pressed to vinyl as it was originally intended. It contains the previously absent songs Autobank Vastrap, the epic Baskitaar and Susanna. Side D also has a live recording of Koos and his guitar during Die Voëlvry Toer at Tuks (Univerity of Pretoria) in 1989.

Niemandsland served Koos' first real hits, Lisa se Klavier and Onder In My Whiskyglas which received significant airplay even on radio stations where he has previously been banned.

There will also be an edition of 40 A2 hand-numbered high-quality posters of an original Shifty Records pamphlet promoting the 1989 release of the record.

Also, you can save R70 if you purchase the Niemandsland vinyl in a bundle with either one of Koos Kombuis' signed memoirs - Seks & Drugs & Boeremusiek + Tyd van die Kombi's
