The Boyoyo Boys, a four-member South African ensemble, offered boiling-hot examples of 1980s township music on this ten-cut disc. As saxophonists Lukas Pelo and Thomas Phale provided a mix of outside riffs and funky, bluesy licks, bassist Vusi Xhosa laid down booming lines, with guitarist Vusi Nkosi skittering, flickering and riding the waves atop the beat.

The Boyoyo Boys, a four-member South African ensemble, offered boiling-hot examples of 1980s township music on this ten-cut disc. The songs were short, catchy, hook-laden workouts, done at fever pitch. A bonus was violinist Noise Khanyile, whose sawing, spiraling solos turned several selections into bubbling, explosive triumphs.

The Boyoyo Boys are a four-piece band from Soweto, South Africa. Formed in 1969, they are among the founders of mbaqanga or township jive, the music of shebeens (illegal drinking halls) in the country's impoverished townships. Mbaqanga music blends jazz and African musical traditions. The group performs on acoustic guitar, upright bass, and drums, with a sax or penny whistle playing the melody. The Boyoyo Boys have 20 gold records in South Africa.

The Beach Boys Today! is the eighth studio album by the American rock band the Beach Boys, released on March 8, 1965. The album signaled a departure from their previous records with its orchestral approach, intimate subject matter, and abandonment of themes related to surfing, cars, or superficial love.
