FOKOFPOLISIEKAR &
MK Presents:






Forgive Them for
They Suck K*k -
A Live DVD










Fokofpolisiekar is famous for their explosive live
performances and raw on-stage energy; the powerful conveyance of their
intelligent, poetic and honest-to-the-bone lyrics. Their continued success and
ever-growing popularity which transcends class, age and race, bears testimony to
their artistic substance and social impact… and to being far more than just an
outrageous name. 









In December 2012, in the
run-up to Fokofpolisiekar’s 10-year anniversary, friends and fans attended
the Barnyard Theatre in
the Cresta Mall, Johannesburg, South Africa to
bathe in the Spirit of Fokof.




The recording of this performance was
intended for live streaming on
mktv.co.za.
Fokofpolisiekar and MK thought: “Kom ons maak dit ‘n DVD.” (“Let’s make it a
DVD.”)












Forgive Them For They Suck
K*k
is a
selection of the band’s most popular acoustic and rock musical offerings
chronicling the past decade.








Bassist of Fokofpolisiekar, Wynand Myburgh, explains the obscure name:



''We do not take ourselves too seriously in
Fokofpolisiekar. After being together for ten years we really enjoy each other’s
company and performing together. Unfortunately our individual schedules do not
allow for rehearsals. We always joke about how well the Fokofpolisiekar shows
go although we are not the tightest live band around and we never rehearse. 





For us it is all about portraying and channeling the
energy of our music while performing. We actually have a name for it: The
Spirit Of Fokof
. It is a raw energy and connection that we have as great
friends who have been playing together in band for a while. 




In 2009 a documentary about Fokofpolisiekar
titled Forgive Them For They Do Not Know What They Do, was
released by Fly On The Wall. I joked around that a follow-up DVD should be
titled Forgive Them for They Suck K*k. It stuck. It is how the band’s
name came about in 2003 - as a joke and it stuck. We do not proclaim that this
is the best live show ever, but it does have the vibe. Forgive us and
enjoy!!''












The physical DVD will be on sale at the launch
