Its funny how there is so little literature on what must have been an amazing time in Poland.
an amazing time. Check out the Riviera-Remont Club in Warsaw (probably defunct now, I wouldn't know) for other interesting concerts and music events. I remember a Dutch (?) punk band called The Ex playing at Remont, somewhere around the same time. They were great! :-)
There was a lot of Polish bands fooling around in the eighties, some relatively unknown, others very popular, Armia, Siekiera, Moskwa, Dezerter, Brygada Kryzys spring to mind... But there were lots more, and we had lots of fun :-)
Also, many foreign bands would play in Poland, like Cabaret Voltaire, New Model Army, Fugazi... (they were all still rather unknown at the time, maybe that's why it was so easy to invite them to Poland).
Contrary to what many think about commie Poland, young people then were very knowledgeable about the international music scene, knew all the latest trends, and as to the music they listened to, the ideologies they embraced, and the clothes they wore...! Today's youth is sooooo tame in comparison! ;-)
