Fokofpolisiekar – Monoloog in Stereo (Unplugged)


In 2005 I attended Oppikoppi Wired. The same festival where I took the 2005 Oppikoppi Crowd at Fokofpolisiekar photo. That particular Fokofpolisiekar gig was quite a memorable one for me. The atmosphere was chilled out, not something one usually expects at a Fokofpolisiekar gig. I will never forget that day for it was the day that I first heard this song. Monoloog in Stereo (translated as “Monologue in Stereo”) is the title track off their 2005 EP and definately one of my favorite songs by them.

The band have come a long way since then. The main focus of its members seems to be their respective side projects nowadays, but that doesn’t that they don’t get together and jam once in a while. For those of you who don’t know yet. Francois Van Coke (also in Van Coke Kartel), Johnny de Ridder, Jaco “Snake” Venter (also a member of aKING), Wynand Myburgh (also a member of Van Coke Kartel) and Hunter Kennedy (also in aKING and Die Heuwels Fantasties) are the members of Fokofpolisiekar.

This is a video (released by South African music television channel MK) featuring an unplugged version of Monoloog in Stereo followed by the lyrics:

‘n Baie algemene mens
Met baie algemene woorde
In ‘n algemene huis
Kweek algemene drome
‘n Dosis pynverdowers
Op die ou einde van die dag
Is dit seker maar
Al wat jou gelukkig maak

En oor en oor
‘n Monoloog in stereo
Op ‘n mooi dag
Soos vandag

Ek wonder soms
Soms wonder ek
Die son skyn gelukkig
Gelukkig skyn die son

‘n Baie standaard geesteskluis
Waarin ek myself toesluit
Die herlewing was toe net korttermyn
Ek het by die agterdeur uitgegly
As jy voel jy moet dan moet jy

As daar soveel van ons is
Hoekom sal enige iemand jou mis
