Coenie de Villiers recorded and released his first album Skoppensboer in 1982. The album was immediately playbanned in South Africa, for its political contents and criticism of the then-regime. Songs on the album questioned the forced removals from the erstwhile District Six, highlighted the oppression of poverty, and satirized the censorship regulations of the day.
The album was engineered by Kevin Shirley, the producer of, amongst others, the band Aerosmith.
At the beginning of 2003 Mountain Record re-released Coenie’s first album, Skoppensboer, in a commemorative boxed CD edition. The album was remixed and remastered in Hamburg, Germany.
