Fool In a Bubble

Watched a new documentary film by Joshua Sternlicht called Fool In a Bubble at the Obz Cafe last night. It’s a wonderful film on all-round legendary SA musician Syd Kitchen.

I’m kinda ashamed to say that I’ve never seen Syd live but have heard loads about him. If I had more time I would wax lyrical at length, sufficed to say that my mind was suitably blown. Absolutely incredible, simple as that.

The real reason for this post is to flag that Syd is touring Cape Town this week with Dutch troubadour Lucky Fonz III. On this side of town they’re playing The Mercury, Purple Turtle and The Speedway Cafe. I suspect you don’t want to miss out on this.

It has pained me to view my brother’s nakedness, the raw exposure of is underbelly in this documentary by Josh.
Perhaps much CAN be said about the merits of this type of expose and biopic of a legendary musician of the stature of my beloved skyd marx but it leaves a bitter after taste in that it does not adequately address the good work Syd has done to turn his life around after rehab and during the life of post production editing of this film.
I believe there was adequate time to include a footer about Syd’s time spent drying out, the incredible support he received from his amazing lady Germaine, his family and his friends.
The phoenix has risen….

Viva Syd, viva

Thanks for your support! Syd & I were elated by the response we received at Durban Film Festival and at Obz Cafe.

Look for ‘Fool In A Bubble’ to be released theatrically in South Africa around Syd’s 60th Birthday – Feb 14th, 2011!

‘Fool In A Bubble’ CD’s are now available for sale at 120 Rand contact myself of Syd Kitchen directly.
