NEW FRANCOIS VAN COKE VIDEO: KLEIN PRYS



FRANCOIS VAN COKE’s highly anticipated sophomore album, Hierdie is die Lewe (This is the Life), will be released on 2nd February 2017. The album can already be pre-ordered from iTunesor Google Play. The first music video from the album, Mensdom was released on 10 November 2016.

Permanent Record released a 7” vinyl featuring Mensdom and a B-side track called Klein Prys(Small Price) that Francois wrote for Fokofpolisiekar, or Die Bende (The Gang) as they are also affectionately known.


Klein Prys is about the legacy the band shares and the tough times that brought them to where they are today.


Francois reminisces about the old days when Fokofpolisiekar started out, the chances they took, the sacrifices they made, and the adventures they shared. After all these years and after everything they have been through, they remain family and still thrive as a band. “It’s been a privilege to walk this road with the Fokof guys and to still regularly play shows with them,” says Francois.


Francois had a very special music video made for Klein Prys. The video contains priceless footage of Fokofpolisiekar in their early years and present days. This footage has never been released and gives the viewer an intimate behind-the-scenes look at the band.

Klein Prys – Lyrics:

dit moes êrens begin

net ’n kans gewaag

groot drome gerook onder groot bome

hou op werk vir eers

vergeet van geld vir nog ses jaar

niks om te verloor nie

kon nie meer in hul leuens glo nie

dronk genoeg om te kan sing

dis ’n klein prys om te betaal

dit was ons eie wêreld

saam op vier wiele

reis die land sonder gesonde verstand

verloor ’n vuisgeveg

doodsdreigemente en kansellasies

niks om te verloor nie

kan nie meer in hul leuens glo nie

dronk genoeg om te kan sing

dis ’n klein prys om te betaal

as my reputasie my inhaal

ek sal betaal

dis ’n klein prys om te betaal

ons speel nog steeds saam

na die al die jare

paar drankprobleme is mos niks tussen vriende

slagoffer van vryheid

dis ’n familiereünie

op die verhoog saam met my vriende

net bly ek mag nog sing

dis ’n klein prys om te betaal

as my reputasie my inhaal

ek sal betaal

dis ’n klein prys om te betaal
