Brixton Moord en Roof Orkes are an Afrikaans rock band named after an infamous and now-disbanded police unit, the Brixton Murder and Robbery Squad.

"Brixton" here does not refer to the Brixton in London, but to a suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa where the members of the band live: Drikus (Brixton) Barnard (on bass and vocals), Ockert (Murder) Greeff (on drums and brandy), Kapelaan Pat Plank (lead guitar) and Andries (Robbery) Bezuidenhout (on guitar and vocals).

The band plays a style of music sometimes referred to as "alternative Afrikaans music". The label "alternative" has become problematic though. Originally it referred to a group of Afrikaans musicians who, in the 1980s, used their music to criticize the apartheid establishment through their satirical lyrics.
