ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"With this song we protest!" On 12th May 2015 well-known Hout Bay citizens from Hangberg and the valley joint forces in protest and recorded and filmed a song written by SA pop star Ike Moriz. Local musicians Barry van Zyl (Johnny Clegg's drummer), Roger Bashew (bass legend), guitar virtuoso Guy Collins (Hot Water), Hangberg rapper Spike Parker (Peter Parker Michaels), videographer & editor Wayne Johnstone (Myth Media), sound engineer Andrew Rawbone-Viljoen & his brother Jeremy (Digital Forest) and singer, producer, actor and writer Ike Moriz were brought together in protest of the noxious, putrid and potentially harmful emissions of the local Oceana / Lucky Star fish processing factory (fish meal & fish oil for export to China & USA - used as fertiliser, pet food etc) at Digital Forest Studios in Constantia. After decades of reluctantly tolerating the stench, it appears that the side-effects of the factory emissions ranging from headaches, nausea red, itchy eyes to insomnia and sinus conditions are experienced by more and more locals. Many residents who have lived here for decades describe the stench as intolerable and as worse than ever before. All efforts to reason with the CEO and management of the factory have failed so far - in their eyes all is as it should be. Please share this song and video with your friends and encourage them to sign an AVAAZ petition (see link below), join our Facebook group and our Fb page like thousands of other concerned residents. Frustration rises with every time this antisocial public nuisance by the factory (Oceana aka Lucky Star) is violating our constitutional rights of well-being and enjoying our living space. Something needs to change! We are very concerned for our health!! Please help!!!!! Fresh Air For Hout Bay!!! F.A.H.B.

Words to this song (by Ike Moriz http://www.ikemoriz.com / Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/moriz.ike :

LUCKY STAR AIN’T WHAT YOU ARE
(words & music by ©Ike Moriz, 25.04.2015)

At first living with you was so romantic,
Sunsets, harbour lights and fishing boats.
We would stroll the beach, it was gigantic,
Magic views, whales, dolphins and Mount Rhodes.

LUCKY STAR AIN’T WHAT YOU ARE
YOUR BREATH SMELLS LIKE A FISH CIGAR
KNOCK ON WOOD AND FIND A FOUR LEAF CLOVER
LUCKY STAR AIN’T WHAT YOU ARE
YOUR BREATH SMELLS LIKE A FISH CIGAR
LEAVE OUR ‚HOOD’ CAUSE THIS ROMANCE IS OVER

You do your smelly business in the night
when the rest of us is all sleeping tight
You wake our children in the early morning
With headaches, nausea, red eyes: sleep deprived!

LUCKY STAR AIN’T WHAT YOU ARE
YOUR BREATH SMELLS LIKE A FISH CIGAR
KNOCK ON WOOD AND FIND A FOUR LEAF CLOVER
LUCKY STAR AIN’T WHAT YOU ARE
YOUR BREATH SMELLS LIKE A FISH CIGAR
LEAVE OUR ‚HOOD’ CAUSE THIS ROMANCE IS OVER

Your had your chance this town’s given you notice
Yet you persist that there’s nothing wrong
Tried to pay us off, confuse us, divert the focus
Your work here is done!
