Donvé Lee’s Scars that Shine “a rocking rendition” of Syd Kitchen’s dark life
Mark Verbaan’s review of Donvé Lee’s biography of South African musician Syd Kitchen, Scars that Shine, recently appeared in the Independent on Sunday. Verbaan describes Lee’s biography as a memoir which “whips the reader through a life that leaves one open-mouthed in admiration and antipathy in equal measure.”
An extract from Verbaan’s review reads:
I was in my mid-teens when I went out with my parents one night to the Durban Folk Club. I don’t remember much from that evening. The image of one musician, however, has always stayed with me. He was a skinny bloke with black hair down his back. He was wearing a long black coat, a leopard skin hat and an acoustic guitar. That was Syd Kitchen.
