Biography

At the beginning of 1985 Radek Pastrňák, guitarist, singer, and last but not least original lyricist and composer, met the drummer Richard Kroczek. The two together revived the band U238, which faded away again after the bandleader Petr Míček flew. The inseparable couple Pastrňák - Kroczek then for a time became part of the dance band, very ambitious, though, called B Complex. After leaving the band they dived into jazz, already under the name Buty. This was in 1986 and Buty, consisting of our friends P + K, and Vítek Kučaj, Ivan Myslikovian and Luděk Piásečný in addition, immediately began to attend regional rounds of Rockfests.

“When I lost weight, ending at 40 kg, I decided that I had to live on something, so Richard and me escaped into Marie Rottrová’s orchestra. There we played for two years, made a recording and wrote piles of songs for Buty, which were recorded nowhere. I was looking forward to buying something nice for the money earned in that period, but finally the money disappeared God knows where and I began to lose weight again. That was the period when Buty underwent a transformation from jazz via funky and big beat to its present shape.” (RP)

In 1989, still together with their activities in Buty, P + K became involved in Redl’s AG Flek. That was the period when most of the “older” repertoire of Buty came into existence, to be recorded later on the “well concealed” album “Whistle to Yourself, Just Whistle” (Monitor), including, among other things, the hit called “Crow”.
