just educate yourself

I do, I just educate myself about things I'm not especially interested in and anything with the word 'rock' in it (unless a catchword like 'punk' or 'glitter' or 'gothic' or 'roots' is there too....)

Behold the magnificence of Poison 13 who mixed punk with blues slide guitars...

have you heard this Polish band

Maybe, pretty good and I would have loved to see them live back in the day (I always enjoyed live punk shows more than records - many great times were had at those)

Are there any Polish bands/singers or songs in the lines of Europe's The Final Countdown, a-ha, Rainbow circa Can't Let You Go, Dire Straits?

Also what's the Polish equivalent of Nena, Heaven 17, Madness?

I almost universally prefer studio music to concerts

I'm kind of the way except for punk, the crowd is what makes it magic....

I promoted gigs in London in the early eighties and Punk Rock was nothing but trouble.
Them and Reggae gigs.
It is part of the reason that Hard Rock came back, because the punters did not cause trouble and drank beer.
Unlike the Punks and Rastas who caused trouble and took drugs....
Pubs banned the Punks and Rastas and started booking proper Rock bands.

A friend has reggae gigs now in their venue up north. They were worried at first however most of the people who go are 60+.

Rastas who caused trouble and took drugs....

If it's ganja, they're too chilled to cause hassle.

AFAICT European and American punks were very different, in the college town I lived in they were careful not to do much damage (shows were organized by a member of of a local band that everyone knew and they didn't want her to lose her deposits). A few shows were held in houses (when the few local venues were unavailable). There wasn't much in the way of drugs since "straight edge" was a thing then.

This wasn't any kind of commercial enterprise - there was a sort of small punk band... circuit in the 1980s (into the early 1990s at which point I lost track) followed by a bunch of never-to-be-famous-groups who were touring more for fun than for fame and fortune.

The band members would pile in a van and drive from city to city, crashing in the living rooms of locals who organized the shows (there was an informal network so they knew what bands were coming and when). The locals would also make up fliers and post them so people knew when and where the next show was.The bands also sold their privately printed lps and t-shirts to help get gas money to the next town.

Ours just used to spraypaint 'sham 69' on walls and spit at each other. Yours sound interesting.

I remember this pastiche song from 1982. It was really crazy. Now I am reading the communist authorities soon took it off air and TV coz they thought it mocked their martial law.

It's not for everyone and hasn't produced any worldwide hits. They have Chopin for international excellence in music instead...

Usually no. The 80s delinquents are mostly bald brexit gammons now.

The best Polish rockband ever was Dżem with Ryszard Riedel as a frontman. Who know him?

Who know him?

I do.
But, although he was good, he was not the best.
I prefer Wilki and Coma.

Who know him?

Rather who knew him coz he is long dead due to his addiction to heroin. He was a music genius.

I prefer Wilki

Good but not the best ones.
