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

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
