Otherworldly Videos: The Brother Moves On


I found out about this band some time ago and also just found out that Spoek Mathambo said in an interview they were one of his favorite groups. The Brother Moves On are also from Johannesburg, South Africa. They describe their group as “The ghost inside the magic, the stranglers of an innocent idea of bringing performance art to its knees through costume, music and storytelling. A playful site specific collaborative piece of performance art in the form of a band based in Johannesburg. The name of this collective is derived from David Simons ‘The Wire’ character Brother Mouzone, meaning “judicious” in Arabic, a transient assassin with that audacious yet sincere difference.” You can listen to their two EPs, The Golden Wake and ETA, here.
