Van Coke Kartel is Francois Van Coke, Wynand Myburgh and a collective group of guest artists.
Just two years after their first release, Van Coke Kartel is back with a third full-length album - Skop, Skiet en Donner. The new album follows on the group’s 2009 SAMA-winning release, Waaksaam & Wakker and once again confirms Van Coke Kartel as a unique phenomenon on the Afrikaans music landscape.
Francois Van Coke and Wynand Myburgh grew up in Bellville together, and have shared their love for making music for as many years as they have been friends. They have played together in many bands over the years, of which Fokofpolisiekar is the best known.
In 2007 Fokofpolisiekar took a break. This break offered Van Coke and Myburgh the opportunity to bring Van Coke Kartel to life, and to focus on their shared musical interests – honest, no-nonsense rock performed with an unequalled intensity, through which to convey their take on life.
