Today I’m featuring the unplugged version of “Monoloog in Stereo” (a song by Fokofpolisiekar). In 2005 I attended Oppikoppi Wired. I watched them play an acoustic set during the day at the Electronic stage. 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 “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 (who is also a member of aKING and Die Heuwels Fantasties) are the members of the band.
This is a video (released by South African music television channel MK) featuring an unplugged version of “Monoloog In Stereo”:
