With only six weeks to go until the release of Jericho Summer’s debut album Night Train, the artists have reached a staggering 2500 facebook follows without even putting a single track online. There is no doubt that founding members of the group Jay Zefin and Vanessa Joy have put hours of work into this project; however the attention that Jericho Summer is receiving has exceeded all expectations to date. PR is underway in the UK, and some editors of major magazines have requested second copies of the CD for their personal use. Comments from various music industry professionals have been nothing less than complimentary regarding the writing and production of the album.
Jericho Summer have announced that they have included one cover track on the album ‘Good One Comin On’, which was written by DL. Murphy, LR. Parnell and G. Nicholson. Trent Wilmon originally recorded the track in a country style and it was then covered by Blackberry Smoke in a Southern Rock style. Jericho Summer have changed the drums from half time to four/four to making it appear as a faster tempo. It has also been transformed it into a male female duet, which adds a new twist to this already amazing track.

White people have no claim to land in South Africa because they brought no land with them when they colonised the tip of the continent. That was the message Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) commander-in-chief Julius Malema gave at an election rally in Newcastle at the weekend.
Eyewitness News reported that he said the Freedom Charter – which states: “restrictions of land ownership on a racial basis shall be ended‚ and all the land redivided amongst those who work it” – was problematic.
“If we say that South Africa belongs to whites too it means we are defeating what our forefathers were fighting for‚ These whites found us here and not one of them came with a piece of land in their pockets.
So‚ if you see a piece of land and you like it‚ don’t apologise‚ go and occupy that land. That land belongs to us.” the site quoted Malema as saying.
What the Freedom Charter says about land: “The Land Shall Be Shared Among Those Who Work It! “Restrictions of land ownership has ended‚ and all the land redivided amongst those who work it‚ to banish famine and land hunger; “The state shall help the peasants with implements‚ seed‚ tractors and dams to save the soil and assist the tillers; “Freedom of movement shall be guaranteed to all who work on the land;
“All shall have the right to occupy land wherever they choose”

If I am inconsiderate about the comfort of others, or their feelings, or even their little weakness , if I am careless about their little hurts and miss opportunities to smooth their way, if I make the sweet running of household wheels more difficult to accomplish , then I know nothing of Calvary love. Psalm 133:1-3
