is the amalgamated Afrikaans musical effort of V.O.D vocalist Francois
and Springbok Nude Girls guitarist Theo.
The first music video Flamedrop
made for Kobus! was Dink Jy Nou. The basic idea came from Francois
and was shot in tandem with footage for the Sondag Middag video. While
a bunch of friends & family were having a braai (barbecue) by the poolside, various
shots were taken of the general festivities to be used for Sondag. They
were then pulled into one of the rooms in the house, temporarily turned into a
blacked-out studio for individual shots for the Dink Jy Nou clip. This
basic, but striking video dissolved these faces as they sing the lyrics.
Sondag Middag's band shots, Theo and Francois were shot in the Tamboerskloof
backyard of their friend Deon Cabano, with Table Mountain in the background.
Hoenderman is a crazy song incorporating imagery of a chicken-man visiting
and terrorizing a guy at night in an alcoholic haze. This literal image was incorporated
in the video. It was a more involved shoot, incorporating prosthetic make-up,
dancing girls, green screen pieces, a little bit of animation and hoisting equipment
at an actual chicken farm location. Friend Brett Reynolds was roped in to be the
title character complete with chicken make-up, contact lenses and cream 3-piece
'70s suit. For the dancers four young girls from Herschell's were taught a routine.
The grueling shoot took up around 5 days across many locations during a hot December
and often stretched into the early morning hours. Locations included Deon Cabano's
house again (Tamboerskloof), Lazena Chicken Farm (Somerset West), Signal Hill
(Table Mountain), Dolphin Beach, Durbanville, a vacant lot in Three Anchor Bay,
and Flamedrop Studios.
The abovementioned three songs came from the self-titled
Kobus! debut album.
the second 100% Skuldgevoelvry album, the song Die Sorie Van Die Duiweltjie
En Die Engeltjie utilized footage from the live performance in front of 1000s
of fans at the KKNK Kaktus Op Die Flaktus festival. This was also the first
show to feature Kobus! as a 4-piece band as opposed to their usual 2-man set-up
with backtracks and a DJ - Rob on bass and Paul on drums. The only additional
footage and images were live shots used from a live show in Gauteng and facial
studio shots taken at Flamedrop Studios of a spoken vocal piece. The closing shot
is the cartoonish image of the two little devils created by Francois for the CD
