The Buckfever Underground was founded in Grahamstown in 1998 by Toast Coetzer and Gilad Hockman. They have released a number of critically acclaimed albums like “Jou Medemens Is Dood”, “TAFL – Teaching Afrikaans as a Foreign Language”, “SAVES” and “Verkeerdevlei”. They have appeared at big festivals like Oppikoppi but prefer small, intimate performance spaces like lounges, porches and gardens – they have toured around South Africa in this way, bringing their improvised music and mix of English and Afrikaans poetry right into the homes of their fans. The band currently consists of Toast Coetzer (vocals, words), Stephen Timm (percussion) and Michael Currin (guitar).
