Van Coke Kartel – Voor Ons Stof Word

Oppikoppi2009VanCokeCartel 300x225 Van Coke Kartel   Voor Ons Stof WordI’ve seen Van Coke Kartel live a few times since 2007. This Afrikaans rock outfit from Bellville seems to be on the path to becoming one of the best rock bands in South African music history. Francois van Coke (Fokofpolisiekar), Wynand Myburgh (Fokofpolisiekar) and Justin Kruger are the members of Van Coke Kartel (if you didn’t know already). They will be releasing their 3rd studio album in February / March 2010 which will be entitled Skop, Skiet en Donner. Van Coke Kartel have released the first track off their upcoming album, Voor Ons Stof Word. This song can be downloaded for free at Rhythm Music Store. Van Coke Kartel is currently on tour in the coastal regions of South Africa. They will be appearing on the 15th December (as part of Vanfokkingtasties) at Flamingos in Langebaan (near Cape Town) on the 26th of December at the Groot Gees Fees in Stilbaai, on the 28th of December (as part of Vanfokkingtasties) at the Piesangvallei City Hall in Plettenberg Bay, on the 29th of December (as part of Vanfokkingtasties) at Supertubes in Jeffrey’s Bay and on the 30th of December (as part of Vanfokkingtasties) at the Mossel bay City Hall in Mossel Bay. Get out and support South African music if you can in the festive season! The photo on this post was taken at Oppikoppi 2009 Smoorverlief by your’s truly.

This is the video for Voor Ons Stof Word, followed by the lyrics:

My gemoedstoestand raak al beter
Al sak die donker toe
Dit beteken nog nie ek gaan hemel toe
Miskien nog verder van ‘n hemelwese af
Ek voel nog jonk, maar ek glo glad nie in sprokies nie
Gee my tyd my hart
Dans saam terwyl ons heengaan
Voor ons stof word
Gee net tyd my hart
Dans saam terwyl ons heengaan
Voor ons weer stof word
Dis hier waar ek veilig voel
Onder versagtende omstandighede
Trap ek dalk nou op jou tone?
Ek nie veel van ‘n danser nie, maar ek sal dans as ek dronk genoeg is.
