2003 – present (14 years)
Fokofpolisiekar is a South African Afrikaans Pop Punk band from Bellville in Cape Town, formed in 2003. The band has been the cause of much controversy amongst the general public - generally due to their band name translating to "Fuck Off Police Car" in English, as well as the lyrical content of many of their songs.
They released their first EP, As Jy Met Vuur Speel Sal Jy Brand which can be translated into English as If you play with fire you will get burnt.
Soon thereafter, they released the track, Hemel op die Platteland translates into Heaven in the countryside which made history when it became the first Afrikaans song to be officially playlisted on one of South Africa 's English national radio stations, 5FM .
Their first complete album Lugsteuring translates into Air disturbance, produced by John Paul De Stefani, was released in 2004, followed in 2005 with another EP, Monoloog In Stereo (Monologue in stereo).
Fokofpolisiekar have performed at various venues throughout South Africa and in October 2005 they toured the United Kingdom.
