"Music has been my outlet, my gift to all the lovers in this world," Michael Jackson once said. "Through it, my music, I know I will live forever." Well, based on Kenny Wizz's spectacular performance in HIStory II, the king of pop won't be going out of our lives any time soon.

But now, two years later, he has his very own show playing for two weeks at the Baxter Theatre and I'm a little bit better at writing reviews. (Well I hope so.)

The saying: "When America coughs, Britain catches a cold," can be extended to "and South Africa kaks it out". What's referred to as "influences" everywhere else, we often call "that place "they" stole it from." Seether and Nirvana. Fokkof and Alkaline Trio. The Plastics and The Strokes. Be a purist, call it postmodern trite, or blame it on Tweak for overdoing anything by Tom Delonge. It's the skeleton in the closet we drag on the wings of progress. And it's no different with Isochronous, who either love or detest a band called Mew.
