Where can I get a copy. I have Cold Fact, After the Fact and the Best of. These were the anthems of the South African servicemen who served in the SADF and are inextricably linked to that era. The boys that served in "Nam" (as in Namibia). His name echoes with other words like raatel, buffel, R4, doibie, afkak, opf*k, basics, staaldak webbing geweer, grensvegter. Nobody cared about us then and nobody gives a hoot now but for those who were there, the music brings back haunting flashbacks of a time gone by. One day these stories will be told and the world will gasp at what went on. The ideological wars of Korea and Vietnam against the spread of communism funded by the US are well-known but the ideological war in Angola against the same red foe partly funded by the US remains buried waiting for the right story-teller. I wonder how many times you been had and I wonder how many guys have gone bad, and I wonder......wonder I do.
