Sold out Flat Stanley gets another Cape Town launch for their debut album!

Press release

Flat StanleyCape Town based band Flat Stanley is set to take SA's music scene by storm with the launch of their eagerly awaited debut album, Of Secrets and Wine.

The band has become so immensely popular that their forthcoming Cape Town launch on Wednesday (29 September) at the Theatre Royal (Longmarket Street) is completely sold out!

But their fans don't need to fret, a second gig has been arranged for Friday 1 October at the same venue! Book now at Computicket to avoid dissapointment.

The album is the result of two years of creative effort, inspiration and hard grind by this melody based acoustic rock outfit and is bolstered by the genius of producer, Theo Crous, who has played a seminal part in helping the band define their sound. The album features vocals by Andrew Mac, Clinton Gahwiler on rhythm guitar and backing vocals, Neil Potgieter on lead guitar and Clive Pringle on cello. Paul Tizzard (ex Usual) on drums and Rob Nel (Golliwog) on bass worked so well in the studio that Paul and Rob will be joining Flat Stanley for the launch and for special performances.

Levi's Original MusicThe story of how Flat Stanley began is the stuff legends are made of. It all started when Andrew Mac, bolstered by some vodka-induced Dutch courage, braved the crowd and sang a few Pearl Jam and U2 covers at a friend's house party. Clinton heard Andy sing, knew this was the voice for the songs he'd been writing, and suggested they get together. Ten days later they won the Annual Barleycorn Music Club Songwriting Competition with "Rain", followed by another big break when Mike Joubert of Levi's Strauss South Africa heard the band play at the Buddha Bar. The result? Flat Stanley was selected as one of Levi's Original Music Artists for 2004: yet another huge step forward for the band

One of the many phenomena surrounding and driving Flat Stanley's success has been the ever-increasing and overwhelmingly supportive fan base, including a core of good-looking girls who call themselves Band Aides (as in the movie Almost Famous). These gorgeous fans will do just about anything for the band - even wearing Flat Stanley bikini's and handing out key rings at the Up the Creek Music Festival.

With Flat Stanley at the helm and a couple of surprises in store it is guaranteed to be an unforgettable evening, so hurry down to your nearest Computicket (083 915 8000 or visit the website) as tickets are selling fast!
