About a week ago my next door neighbour bought a vuvuzela. (Along with the rest of the nation.)
Now please, don’t think me unpatriotic. But really, as a musical, lyrical nation is that seriously the best we could do?
what about this thing? (Does it have a name?) Wouldn’t that have been better?
or if we were really in it for some Jap-crap plastic, what about this thing:
or calabashes, and drums:
what about them? they’re african aren’t they? And pretty.
And surely (i actually typed surly at first by mistake… freudian slip perhaps) a better option than the deafening skwawk of the vuvu.
