This is a first for me. I’ve never interviewed any musician from Botswana….until today. Drummer, Cosmos Modisaemang joins me to talk about the band – which is on tour with Soulfly -their new album ‘Hate Spell’ and what it’s about, influences and more. Plus, he gives details on how to grab a free E.P. from them.
Check it out below….
'Among many other things, Metal is all about perseverance, overcoming challenges and, in the case of SKINFLINT, paving new pathways. You see, SKINFLINT come from Botswana, Africa where Metal has not grown as much as it has in other places in the world.
52 Pictures for 52 Years Of WRIF
Happy Birthday to WRIF. I’ve had the GREAT fortune of being with the station for the past 27 1/2 years. As a kid it would’ve been hard for me to dream that I’d be at on job for so long, let alone one as awesome as this one. I’ve had the chance to do things, and meet people I never thought I would.
Happy Birthday, RIFF….thanks for taking me on this crazy ride. Here’s to MANY more!
Here’s 52 pictures from my time here.
