Hello everybody !!!

I was wondering if some of you could help me. I have been "discovering" Polish bands lately (like Breakout, Kobranocka, Kult, Republika, etc.). I was surprised, or better, very impressed. I would like to know more Polish bands, perhaps from the 70's and 80's ... and especially those ones making rock or blues, but any genre would be great !!!!

Thanks a lot :)

I do like them, cheesy though they are.

Perfect should be mentioned too.

It has to be said - Polish is a hell of a language for rock ballads.

Merged: Polish Music

Hey guys
what are your favourite Polish songs (preferaably from 70s-80s-90s) stuff that are being made now are crap :)
since this is my first thread on the site, i guess i will introduce myself as well
I am a Pole, I immigrated to the UK for couple of years, but now I am and a bit bored haha - thus i have found this forum :)

The question mainly goes to the foreigners living in PL, or that like Polish music but still live abroad..

let me start...

Closterkeller is nice. it's not from te 70', but late 80'. pretty much till Cyan got released in '96, they were playing good, proper rock (although, some people may classify it otherwise- new wave, gothic etc).

Bajm used to play rock as well (it doesn't anymore)

Do you mean that they did a cover version of 'I Shot the Sheriff' by Bob Marley? Or is it a completely different song? The lyric in the Bob Marley one goes: I shot the Sheriff but I didn't shoot no deputy.

but I didn't shoot no deputy.

Are you sure ?
I thought it was:
"but I did not shoot the deputy."

Eric Clapton sings 'I did not shoot the deputy' Johnny, while Bob sings 'I didn't shoot no deputy'. So we're both right :))

Saw Perfect in concert when they opened the new galeria in Lubin back in 2009.

All I can say is wow, what a great band.

Have Dzem in my cd player in my car.

My husband loves Dzem but I'm not into them at all. I find them very derivative, as if they were searching for some sound of their own but never quite found it and a lot of their playing is pretty leaden and uninspired. But the poor old vocalist, God rest his soul, had some charisma and I know his lyrics mean a lot to many people. What I admire most about Dzem or any of those bands of that time, is that they were trying to be creative in a very conservative, repressive society that didn't exactly encourage individualism or personal freedom. The combination of Church and Communism must have been very stifling so hats off to them for what they achieved.
