Rocking the Larterbury Fest 2015

Can of Worms rock out at Legends Venue, East London
Fresh off the boat from SA Indies Music Week in Jo'burg, the Worms were invited to be a part of the annual Larterbury Music Festival, this year hosted at Legends Venue in East London on 23rd December. Some great local talent graced the stage including Ed Johnson, the Atterbury and Larter brothers and local band Serotonin.

Serotonin recently supported music legend Johnny Clegg who performed in East London on 16th December.

The night had a great turn out with lots of new faces and Cindy's energy and personality got the crowd up and dancing the night away.

See you on the 28th Dec at C Club when we will be supporting Desmond and the Tutu's!

Recording of Mother Earth

Drummer Steve and percussionist Debs in the studio
Saturday 31st October - Can of Worms hits the Studio at Legends Contemporary School of Music in East London to record our first single "Mother Earth". Working with the creativity of muso Gary Ndlovu who was set the challenge of taming our 7 minute wild child song to a radio friendly 4 minutes, the vibe in the studio was awesome. Steve took the liberty of laying down his beats earlier in the week giving Dave the space to lay down the bass first in the studio.
