Interesting name of Band.. 🤔 

Would that be 'allowed' nowadays? 

It's a weird one, the b side is alton ellis performing it's your thing.

The coons seem to only have a couple of other songs, maybe they were a backing band not sure.

As a racial slur I don't remember hearing it for a long time and of course it's disgusting but I find it hilarious when people try to cancel the past as potentially offensive, it just makes things a lot worse imo.

That's another groovy tune. 

Yeah, haven't heard or seen the word Coon for a long long time. 

In the USA its short for Racoon, I believe. 

It was used all the time in London in the 70s. TV show 'Love thy Neighbour' would almost certainly have had it among a thousand other phrases and names. 

I've never looked into the history of the use of that word in the racist context. 

Definitely not a word for 2021 😂 


(edit - just looked - Coon is used in a similar way in the USA)
