Koos Kombuis AKA André Letoit
- Vêr van die Ou Kalahari
Shifty Records in partnership with Permanent Record are proud to announce André Letoit's [AKA Koos Kombuis] 1987 debut album "Vêr van die Ou Kalahari" on vinyl for the first time.
Vêr van die Ou Kalahari is the debut full-length by South African artist Koos Kombuis (released as André Letoit).
The album was recorded live onto two-track at Shifty Studios in May '87 and initially only released on cassette tape (and also immediately branded as "undesirable" by the then South African censorship board), three decades later the album saw its inaugural issue on black and also coloured (blue and white) wax.
The vinyl record was done in partnership with Permanent Record and was available in two colours – a classic black and a custom white & blue edition. The package also includes a printed lyric inner sleeve and was exclusively available through Permanent Record.

Our latest documentary PLUCK recently took first place honors for BEST DOCUMENTARY at the London Independent Film Festival 2019.
“There are occasions when a movie is so polarising in its’ creation and its’ subject matter that the very thing that makes it unique and deserving of a release also makes it the one thing that
disallows it a fair voice in the cinema landscape. Such a film is PLUCK, … It is the sort of documentary that should be seen by as many people as possible – perfect contextualisation and a serious statement about a history and relevance that deserves an outlet in any shape or form.”
