Fokofpoliser is one of the first Afrikaans alternative rock bands in South Africa and they have been in the music scene for 16 years now. The band consists of 6 members namely Francois Van Coke, Hunter Kennedy, Wynand Myburgh, Johnny De Ridder, Justin Kruger and Jaco venter.
The sweet 16 album consists of songs the band wrote during their 16 years of existence. It consists of their old classics, all time fan favorites and also some of the more obsure band favorite songs which were not released by the band until their 16 years anniversary. Hunter Kennedy describes the Sweet 16 album:
Sweet 16 Live is a collection of snippets. Pieces of insight into the lives of five losers from Bellville. An audio documentary, sixteen years in, recorded by chance on July 13, 2019 at Loftus D Veld.
The spirit of Fokof revealed itself in the back of a hotbox panel of 2002. In an eggbox-packed band practice room in a dentist’s consulting room, it broke through to this level of existence. In temporary church pubs, she manifested through ears and brains as lips and bodies and tears and fists.
All the songs on the album were performed live except for track 5 that had some guitar strings and bass added to it. The album consists of notable songs like Disin My Blood Baby, Bid Vir My, Angs Aanval. Oop Vir Misinterpretaise and Verklaar are on the album, see the track-list below:
