Music ... Now and Then - Kongos

Young boy has just played me (on his phone so quality poor) a track by Kongos called "Come With Me Now" released in UK 4 days ago  ... here's a Youtube of same ...

 I was impressed - impressed enough to delve further - a South African band ... and the accordion-style - my first thoughts were Cajun - oh no - apparently it's "Kwaito" (a la Paul Simon "Graceland" I guess) ...

But then ... "Old Git Mode" kicked in ... Kongos ...  my mind went back to the early 70's ... John Kongos who had a hit with "He's Gonna Step on You Again" ... back to Youtube (innit wonderful !!!)

... and hence to Wikipedia

... he has four sons  - - - - and it all fits together ...
