Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

Local rockers Fokofpolisiekar has surprised fans with the
release of a hot new song, Paranoia. This is the first new release by the band
singe their last single, Dagdronk from the VanFokKingTasties album in 2012.
Francois van Coke said about Paranoia that they "have “written one of our
greatest songs to date.” Hunter Kennedy ads, “We’ve spent our careers breaking
down previously held opinions and stereotypes of Afrikaners to establish a new
identity. That identity is not fully formed yet and I think a big part of
forming that identity will be for Afrikaners to accept their ‘Africanness’.
Afrikaners are the ones alienating themselves. Paranoia is one of the
side-effects of not understanding who you are and where you fit in.”
Fokofpolisiekar will be working on more new material this year and Hunter
believes that “this song will set the concept of the album.” "We have been
talking about writing new material forever. It's difficult to fit it into
everyone's extremely busy schedules. We finally managed to finish off this
song. It was produced, recorded and mixed by Johnny De Ridder.It is the first time that he has done the
complete thing for Fokofpolisiekar.I
think it is fresh and I could not have imagined it any different or
better.I am a fan of this song;just as I was when we started writing the
first FPK stuff in 2003. I am excited!'' says Wynand Myburgh. Fans of the band
