Lithium - Grunge From The Cape
LiTHiUM: 1992 - 1999
"Lithium was my first "real" band. We started back in the early days when at least three quarters of your set had to be covers if you wanted to get the venue. We release three CD's (Broken, Take Out EP and Zennon Supertroopers) and a few cassettes (Live at Claremont Civic and Centuary Depravation) over the years and played hundreds of gigs around the country. Touring with Iron Maiden in 1996 and the 1995 Bandslam tour with Springbok Nude Girls, Sugardrive, Nine and Squeal were some of my personal highlights. We kept our fans really close to our hearts via old-fashioned snail-mail correspondence" - David Beretta Owens
Lithium - Take Out EP (1996)
"Broken" and "Take Out" were EMI South Africa releases. The final album "Zennon Super Troopers" was independently by the band. All albums are out of print and are essentially collectors items.
I will post the other 2 when i find them. They are in my room somewhere...
