    • Africans – Cock Mouth Kill Cock
    • Africans – Version
    • 1. Cock Mouth Kill Cock
    • 2. Version

    Remarks
    This tune was Recorded at Harry J. The Africans - were a duo - Keith Simms and Winston Palmer. Over the years another singer joined the group, Patrick Green, but the foundation was Keith and Winston. 'Cock Mouth, Kill Cock' is a slow heavy skank featuring it seems Now Gen on rhythm. The title and the lyrics concern themselves with braggers and boasters. Justin Hinds and even the Royals turned this old time saying into great songs. Yet for sheer power - this one from The Africans is something else.
