Old school rockers Falling Mirror will present The Truth Sessions from Saturday August 3 at 8pm at Truth HQ, 36 Buitenkant Street.
The Truth Sessions are more than just Live Music on a Saturday night – they are a Rock ‘n’ Roll Road Trip that tell the story of the recently re-united 1980s rockers who many might remember from the radio hit ‘Johnny Calls the Chemist’. As the name suggests, each session offer’s a candid two-part insight into Falling Mirror’s 30-year music journey:
The first hour is an explosive look at the band’s work from 1979 to 2012, before launching into a freer and more explorative second hour set featuring new album material, maybe a few covers and the odd jamming collaboration to test fresh ideas in front of a live audience.
The entire session will be captured on film in the intimate live setting of Truth HQ in Cape Town and ultimately form part of a major upcoming international documentary on Falling Mirror.
The unique rock story of Falling Mirror has not only prompted the commissioning of a music documentary, but created renewed interest in the band and their music among a wide audience. This has sparked the development of a new album set for international release in 2014.
Founding band members Allan Faull (lead guitar) and vocalist Nielen Marais, together with original drummer Patrick Humphries, George Den Das on keyboards and Harvey Cohen on bass guitar, were known as a non-performing, inordinately introspective group that has gained a cult following since the 80s. Despite their rare ‘live’ performances, the band has stayed rooted in the nation’s musical psyche ever since ‘Johnny Calls the Chemist’ was released. The Truth Sessions will take them out of the basement and into the fray in one of Cape Town’s favourite urban hideaways, Truth HQ on Buitenkant Street.
