Blk Jks – Artist Information | The Camden Crawl 2012

BLK JKS consist of childhood friends Linda and Mpumi who grew up on the same block in Johannesburg’s East Rand, where they taught themselves guitar. They initially formed the band in 2000; early shows and recordings garnered attention for their stacks of guitar drone and head-nodding beats. After the current line-up took shape with the addition of bassist Molefi and drummer Tshepang, both of Soweto, they embarked on a schedule of heavy touring throughout South Africa that earned them a loyal national following. Mystery EP was released in March 2009, just in time for you to listen to before the Crawl.
